Motivation by definition is the reason why we act in a certain way. We all have a reason why we do things in life, it could be family, work or because it’s our passion. By finding out what motivates people we can connect with them and hear your stories. At B.heard we believe that by listening and sharing your stories we can create and promote a positive social mood, whilst building bridges. Motivation is our inspiration, it’s what drives us to do things in life and understand why we want to do it.
We believe in the importance of motivation because it’s what helps us to keep going when things seem tough. As Picasso said “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” It’s important that everyone uses their gift in life to do what motivates them and help build a better society. What motivates us is what inspires to get out of bed and the reason why we do the things that we do every day.
‘Live in opportunity not uncertainty’, spend each day looking for the positive in everything and you will find that more opportunities will open itself to you. Every day we have the opportunity to do something amazing and reach our potential, what is it that you want to achieve from life? We all have the chance everyday to start over and continue striving towards our goal, no matter what may have happened the day before.
Mary Anne Radmacher said, “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow.’” This is important for all of us to remember, reminding ourselves why we are doing something and keeping the end goal insight can keep you motivated.
What routine can you get into to ensure that you stay motivated and can achieve your goal? “You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” Just by changing one small thing in your daily routine, you can do whatever we want, especially when you know what you want and why.
What is it that motivates you? Is it family, friends, or perhaps the opportunity to do what you’re passionate about? Keeping in mind what or who motivates you can help you do something amazing.
