It has been said that nothing is more powerful than the human soul on fire. What is meant by this? Well by fire is meant ambition, which is another word for motivation. The power of self motivation is one of the most powerful forces that you’ll ever come in contact with.
Motivation is the fuel that propels people to take risks, to set large goals, to develop plans to reach their goals, to continue forward in the face of obstacles, and to persist down the long path that will eventually lead to the realisation of their highest ideals.
The starting point of success is motivation, because without motivation no large success would ever be accomplished.
And another statement that is equally true is that when someone has developed a strong source of personal motivation, they will be immune to failure and in time will do amazing things and reach all of their goals. This being the case, it is obvious that most people must not be very motivated. Why is that?
Well to answer that question we need to look at another question which is what creates motivation? Motivation comes from desire and passion. When you want something, and you want it badly enough to where you’re willing to do anything to get it, you have motivation. And that is the exact reason why most people do not have a lot of motivation.
Unless you know clearly and definitely what you want to achieve, you will never have the motivation to achieve it. Sure many people might have goals or aspirations, but they are usually general and not specific. A general goal will not inspire motivation because there will not be a strong desire to achieve it.
However, when your goals are crystal clear and you know exactly what you want to achieve and when you want to achieve it, you create inside yourself a burning obsession to attain the object of your desire, and therefore you ignite the fire of ambition that will propel you through any obstacle and land you on the high road of success.
Remember, the more clear you are about your vision, the more motivation and passion you will have!
