You know you want your life to get better, but you just can seem to follow through with the “doing what it takes” due to lack of motivation. What drives you? Knowing your inner source of motivation (or an exterior source would work as well) is the first step to ramping up your tendency to keep up your forward-moving momentum in getting to where you want to be, or having everything your heart desires.
Motivation What Drives You
What are the sources of your motivation? What drives you?
You are obviously moving through life with some degree of motivation right now. It might not be getting you to where you want to be or the things that you want out of this life, but you’ve made it this far in your life, and you’re still managing to get up and “do life.” Why?
What motivates you to get up every day?
If you’re working, you’re probably doing what you do because you feel like you have to, to pay the bills, to feel worthy enough to live the life you’re living, at whatever station you’re living on our planet.
In most cases of people who are knee-deep in working just to get by or survive, they have very little resources leftover to pursue their purpose, message, passion, and mission.
All of us have a natural inclination to be motivated to do anything, like, money, pleasure, satisfaction, success, helping and caring for others, feeling of accomplishment, looking good to others, making your parents proud of you, or any of the many things that motivate and drive us to do the things we do.
Once you’ve determined that thing that is the basis of your motivation, what drives you can be manipulated to feed you with enough energy to move you forward. Just keep reminding yourself of it. For instance, if you are driven by making your parents proud of you, you could put a note on your mirror, a notecard in your pocket, put a sticker on your phone, all reminders that “I want to make my parents proud of me.”
When you see these reminders, ask yourself, “What can I do right now to make my parents proud of me.” And do something. Even if it’s just imagining yourself doing something that would make your parents proud. This will help fuel your motivation to do what you want to do.
While you are using your imagination, keep in mind that your imagination, as powerful as it is, may not translate well to the 3D world where we live and breathe today. Following up on your imagining what you could do with some inspired action, creates exponential powerful results transmitting powerfully through your life and your world.
People often refer to me as a motivational speaker, which does not set very well with me, because if I’ve learned anything in my practice over the years, it’s that you (I) can’t motivate anybody. I mean, you could motivate someone to do something, like you could bribe them, pay them, promise to love them, threaten them or their family, and you could motivate them to do a thing, but it will not last for long.
Admittedly though, I do tend to attract people who are motivated, the movers and shakers in the world. I think that’s what confuses people. But the truth is, I don’t motivate anybody, but I do work with motivated people who are highly driven to achieve their highest and best.
There are people who have flipped this whole idea of working for a living into a more empowering positive flow of energy by learning to love what they do for work, or alternatively, change what they do so that they are doing what they love, and their whole life changes to meet the new frequency of their lifestyle.
Even if you are highly respected in your profession, you may not be achieving a sense of genuine satisfaction from what you are doing every day. Even if you are highly paid, if you are not fulfilling the reason for being, the reason you came to this life in the first place.
Once you realize this, you can tap into energetic resources from the source of all life, to live a better life, your best life and make the world a better place.
When you do this, your life shifts from spinning your wheels to just get by or keep up with the Joneses. Instead, you start living an abundant life, fulfilling your life’s calling, and enjoying all the best things this life has to offer.
You may have tried to achieve this feeling by purchasing things that you want, and you already know that as much as it satisfies to buy what you want, that feeling good feeling doesn’t last so long.
The alternative is to live your life full-on, rich in your purpose, message, passion, and mission, attracting and manifesting everything that you want out of this abundant vibration of living your life as following your sacred calling. If you are doing this, there is no other more satisfying manner of living your life.
