Good day everyone

Welcome back to the Café

Here is a piece of training I shared with a student this week.

I hope you find it helpful.

Why Motivation Is Key to Happiness And Success

It’s so easy to say we want to be happy and successful. But getting there takes so much more than just saying it out loud. You need to take action, too.

Taking action is where most people fail. They start off brimming with enthusiasm. They’ll plan out how they’re going to become successful and happy, but along the way, they’ll realize it’s too much work. So, they stop and forget all about their dreams. And they end up unsuccessful and unhappy.

You see, these people lost their motivation. Without it, they have no fuel to continue their journey, so they stop in the middle of the road. They end up waiting on the sidelines, watching life go by. They get stuck in their comfort zones, and they think now they have no other choice but to live out the rest of their lives in misery.

The good news is everything’s not over yet. If you’re reading this article, then it means you’ve still got life in you. Which means you’ve got a fighting chance to go after your dreams of happiness and success once again.

Quitters are never going to win. If you don’t want to be labeled a quitter, you need to get back out there and continue your journey!

The only question now is how to get your motivation back. Motivation can be classified into intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation is that fire burning within you, while extrinsic motivation is external factors that will motivate you to get off your feet (like rewards and punishment).

Never forget your “why.” Why do you want to be successful? Why do you want to be happy? Who are you doing all these things for? For yourself? Or for someone dear to your heart? Use these as motivation to stay on track.

Also, try to surround yourself with positive influences and stay away from people who’ll tell you that you’re never going to amount to anything else. If you get trapped within a circle of negativity, you’ll find it extremely difficult to succeed in anything. 

Establish milestones and celebrate even the smallest wins. These will help sustain you and encourage you to continue doing your best. Don’t be afraid of failing, too. Treat failure as your friend and learn from your mistakes. It’s going to show you the path you need to take to be happy and successful in life!
