What a powerful word. If you have it - great.
If you don't, then what?
I'll tell you what - you have some work to do.
I define motivation as "that which moves us". With that basic definition - motivation can be positive or negative. We have all been exposed to this... when one says "She is self-motivated" they are saying that that person needs no motivation - she is literally moving herself. Conversely, when we hear some say "She is just not motivated" - they are literally saying - she is not moving.
So where are you?
Today, I can say I am moving forward with my plans. I know precisely what moves me and I am honoring that now. It does not hurt that fear of getting older and missing my goals is motivating me - I say - whatever it takes to keep us moving forward.
I challenge everyone to stop and think about what moves you... if it is not working - you need to go back to the drawing board.
Authentic motivation knows no fear. Authentic motivation moves forward in any economy under all circumstances.
