Motivation: Motivation for the World, One Word at a Time

Motivation… an excerpt from the soon to be released book:

Motivation for the World, One Word at a Time by Gary A. McAbee

Motivation by definition includes action. Consequently there cannot be any action without motivation. I will take it a step further and say everything, including inaction, is caused by motivation. For example, if you want to walk, you have to be motivated to get started. On the other hand, if you chose to stand still, you have to be motivated to stay in place. These examples prove that motivation is not some whirlwind idea that can come in and make sweeping change. Instead, it is the reason why you take each and every action. In order to provide Motivation for the World, it is necessary to provide motivation for yourself.

The initial takeaway from this concept is people are always self-motivated to do whatever they want to do. Self-motivation is taking action based on how you feel; I call this our inner-drive. Self-motivation is a critical component of the success process and achieving victory. We make decisions constantly about what comes next, and the actions we take are based on being self-motivated. In other words, you have the power to determine whether you make progress on the road to success, remain in the same place, or take steps backward.

We want to discuss motivational strategies and tactics that will propel us forward. In order to do this, we need to learn about the things that make us advance in a positive direction. Positive things can spur us on; I call these things positive motivators. Negative things can also push us toward taking action; I call these things negative motivators. Since both exist simultaneously, we must remain aware of motivating factors that align with our dreams and vision. These are the things that propel us toward setting goals and achieving victory.

How do successful people stay motivated in order to move forward? We have already covered several tactics they use. Successful people define and expect victory. They build seemingly endless reservoirs of faith. Successful people believe in the power of thinking in terms of if and when things will happen. They dream and use their vision to see what success looks like and how it will ultimately feel. They find their passion and use it as a constant reminder of their purpose in life. They set goals and treat success as a process that will work in their favor if they stay the course and stick to the plan. These are some of the tactics the high-achievers use to stay motivated.
Affirmation: I am self-motivated so that I can put in the necessary effort to become more successful.
