What causes us to be motivated?

The answer to this question is going to vary greatly from person to person. In simplest terms most people are motivated by a desire to provide for themselves and their families, and to work toward their goals and dreams. Motivation is what causes us to get out of bed each day and work toward a goal. Whether that goal is to succeed at a job to earn a paycheck, or that goal is to care for our family, those goals are what keep us motivated.

Without needs in our life to drive our actions, then the ability to stay motivated would be very difficult. What causes us to be motivated? The need to work, live, and strive for a better life.

While motivation may drive us to go through our daily lives, finding the motivation to pursue a greater purpose eludes most people. Most people get up and go to work every day and never find a way to realize their dreams and attain a better life. This is because they lack the motivation to put in the necessary time and effort to reach their goals. If you want to prevent this from happening to you, then you need to take definitive steps to avoid it. First, you have to identify what your goals are. Do you want to start your own business? Or write a novel? Or climb the corporate ladder? No matter what your goals are, the first step has to be identifying them.

Next you can create a plan of how to get to where you want to be. Using this plan you can refer to it on a regular basis to help reinforce your motivation. You can use it to track your progress, and in turn this will help you to keep moving forward and stay motivated to reach your goals.

What causes us to be motivated? The answer to that is going to depend upon who you ask. For the average person a simple need to survive and provide for their family is their motivation. It’s what gets them to get out of bed and head to a job each day that they may or may not like. However for those who have a vision for a better future the source of their motivation is this vision. The ability to set goals, and plan to reach them can be a great where to inspire yourself to do your best, and it can keep you motivated even when you face adversity.
