24 Jul Motivate yourself to work on your dream
The word motivation brings in together two different words ‘Motive’ and ‘Action’. When we combine our motive with the needed action we give rise to our motivation.
Motivation is of two diverse kinds, external motivation and internal motivation. External motivation is entirely carrot-driven; the threat of loss or hope of reward – which can act as very powerful motives.
Self-motivation or internal motivation is far more important than external motivation, which is temporary and you could get completely bored, also the threat of a loss might not be prominent throughout. So, work on our internal motivation.
Work on the motivation that makes you feel, “This is internal, this is something that is dear to me, something I want to work on, which I want to achieve and this is something which is important to me.”
So now the question arises how do you now motivate yourself to work on your dream and make it come true, how do you get to that zone?
You do that in two very important ways; firstly, enjoy the process of working on your dream and every single thing that you do every single day.
Secondly, be grateful that you got a chance to work on your particular dream and to make sure that it actually comes true.
Though it is easier said than done and the question arises; “How to enjoy that particular journey that you are onto?” Pick a few people who believe in your dream and start sharing your small successes with one or two people who are very dear to you helps a lot; this increases your confidence, self-belief and will power.
We got to remember, at the end of the day it is not a question of “if the dream will come true” but “when the dream will actually happen and become a reality”. So, keep working on your dream; don’t ever give up on the power of the fact that your dream can go ahead and change the whole world. Once people around you are convinced that you have a prevailing dream and are immensely motivated about your dream; you will find people coming forward and supporting you.
As Swami Vivekananda had said, “All power is within you; you can do anything and everything. Believe in that, do not believe that you are weak; do not believe that you are half-crazy lunatics, as most of us do nowadays. You can do anything and everything, without even the guidance of any one. Stand up and express the divinity within you.”
