The Value of Motivation

“Crazy Train” – Ozzy Osbourne
“Welcome to the Jungle” – Guns ‘n Roses
“Enter Sandman” – Metallica
“Lose Yourself” – Eminem
“Can’t Hold Us” – Macklemore

And the list of motivational songs goes on and on…

There are thousands of motivational videos on YouTube – and that’s just in the English language.

Those that truly reach their goals are internally motivated. They have a vision, a dream, an image of what success looks like and they use that as an end result to work towards. They know what success looks, feels, smells and tastes like and they strive to achieve it every day. They have an incredible work ethic and drive that keeps them moving on a daily basis.

So what’s the point? What’s the value of motivation?

Motivation adds gasoline to an already burning fire. It fans the flames on days when it starts to rain. Motivation gives you the extra jump you need to get over the next mountain or through the next valley.

Motivation is critical whenever you start to feel just a little bit complacent. Days when you think things are moving in a good direction and you’re happy with your progress – that’s when you need motivation. When you get a little bit down because things didn’t quite work out for you.

Motivation takes an already driven person and pushes them that much harder – it keeps them sharp and helps them achieve truly new heights.

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar

Now we’re cooking with gas
