What it takes to be Successful - 1. Motivation

Steps to SuccessIn the "What it takes to be Successful" series, number one was Motivation so let me elaborate. 

One of the most important things that lead you to success is the way you motivate yourself towards achieving that goal, because let’s face it, it’s very hard for anyone to  achieve the goals that are imposed with so many distractions along the way. Yes, life is filled with numerous distractions, many of which are specifically created to put you off-balance as you try to pave your way to success. Of course, at first it might be a little hard to determine, but as time passes and you get closer to your goal, motivation just becomes the only way to reach your goal.

The main issue is that many people fail to motivate themselves properly, and this is what gets them off-balance. The way they achieve motivation requires them to have a clear end goal, as this is crucial. Once you have an end goal, you will push yourself towards the limit in order to obtain the best results. Even if this means that you have to do a massive amount of work, stay overtime or just train for hours, these seem much simpler and do make sense when you have a certain goal in your mind and life.

Motivation also ties to physical care as well. Many times, we think that we do have the power to complete everything we want, but sometimes our body might not be able to deal with so much work and pressure. The way we do this is lots of sleep and a good diet that will provide us with an energy boost. All of these need to combine seamlessly in order to lead towards a happy life, because a healthy person is a motivated one, as conditions and injuries or diseases can obstruct us from the matter at hand.

It’s a good idea to keep the motivational factor fun. Taking the job too seriously might be tiresome and many times you just fail to give your 100% on that, which in many situations is disappointing. With fun, you just solve these issues in a more efficient manner.

It might also be a good idea to reward yourself as time passes and you get closer to your goals, because nothing can be better than actually seeing that your sacrifices are well worth it and you do benefit from them.

Last, but not least, the motivation also ties in to the self-confidence. In order to be motivated, you need to believe  100% in your capabilities, because this is the only good way to achieve success. Sure, it might take a while, but in the end you can rest assured that having a lot of confidence in your power and what you do will be well worth it!


This is the main reason why you need to focus in order to be motivated on your goals, as these will allow you to get the success you always wanted!


As always I wish you much success, and stay tuned to the next article in the series - RK

 Good morning Ricky. It does take time to put it all together. Physical, mental and spiritual.
