What is your motivation?

What you never considered motivation can be:

“Just because something is negative doesn’t mean it can’t have a positive impact in your life…” Motivation is what makes you do something, that is the force that keeps you going. According to Newton’s law of motion it states that

Every object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless compelled to change its state by the action of an external force.

The key point here is that if there is no force acting on an object then the object remains at rest and If an external force is applied the velocity will change because of the force. Applying the Newton’s law to life now, in the course of living our life there is a force that keeps us pushing be it abstract or concrete, external or internal, which I call motivation. Motivation is very important because it constitute the force that drives us, Imagine a life without a motivation, it will be so stagnant or slow because without a reason to do something, doing that thing will be meaningless and almost impossible.

Your motivation can be a feeling, thought and it can also be a person or what someone said to you…Motivation doesn’t have to be positive, your motivation can be negative or positive. The negative occurrence in our life, like the things that did not work out, failed exams, failed jobs, failed relationship or the struggles in our families, jobs and life in general can be a motivation. Our motivation can also be the positive things in our life that keeps us on our toes, pushing us forward, they can be the positive actions of people we admire, our zeal to keep the people in our life happy and the need to remain where we are or get better…


Negative or positive, there is a force that keeps us going but it depends on the interpretation we give to them, sometimes in misconception we view those things as frustrations and discouragement when they can be what could ignite the fire in us and stir us to the destination we desire and where God want us to be. That someone said something hurtful to you or treated you badly or that you didn’t get what you wanted because of your skills, looks, race, gender, status, nationality or background does not always have to have a negative effect on you, you can turn that into a force. You don’t have to device means to get back at them or drown into depression as a result of these things, you can simply use that to heat up your energy to become a better you at your area of inadequacy (at least they helped you identify your weakness).


So at this point I want to ask you, What is Your motivation in Life? what is the force that keeps you going? reflect in your life and point out those things that cold seem a motivation those things you have viewed as obstacles or discouragement and begin to see things, people and circumstances in your life differently.
