Motivation Is the Fuel You Need When You’re Driving towards Success – Sira Masetti

When we talk about motivation, we mean something we hope to attain in the future, that is influencing our behaviors and our actions right now. So, the first thing we need to ask ourselves is: “Where do I want to go? Where do I want to be in 5 years? Who do I want to be in 10 years?”  Those questions are simple, but the respective answers sometimes are quite hard to find.

When answering those questions the most important thing is listening to our emotions and enthusiasm towards something. Let’s say for example that we don’t know where we want to buy our first house. Well, the first thing we should do, is visualizing us in that house. Where do we want this house to be? In Berlin? In London? In Rome? In Los Angeles? As a result, one of the options we think about will make us feel more excited and enthusiastic.

This way, we would find our motivation to go towards our goal.  For example, in this case our “fuel” would be the idea of buying our dream house in our favorite city, and we would have to work hard in order to afford it.  And if that house is what we really want, working hard would take us both to our expected results and to other “side effects,” such as developing a higher self-esteem, getting promoted at work, learning new stuff, or growing up professionally. And when we focus on our end result goal the work required becomes almost effortless.  It begins to take on a seemingly paradoxical effect – we would be working harder, but it feels almost like less effort because we know our end result and our why.

It is evident that, when we look for what triggers our emotions and makes us excited and passionate about our future, we find the right motivation, and we have the most sophisticated and fine fuel to drive towards success. This means being unstoppable and having the power and energy to achieve big things that others usually can’t.

    I actually disagree. Motivation is a nice thing to have but you do not need it. What ultimately determines wether or not we achieve our goals is determination and dedication. The ability to do the things we need to do wether we feel like it or not is far more important. Anyone can act if they are motivated. Only the best do without it.

  • well I agree it’s the disciplines that create, but you also would have needed to be motivated at some point, for some reason, to change or create your new disciplines that would help drive you to where you want to go.

    Love Maserati’s

  • WOW! I was honestly taken aback by this blog post, being that I have post it notes on my mirror that says ” I CAN SUCCEED, I AM SUCCESSFUL, AND ONE THAT SAYS I WILL MAKE $5,ooo+ in the NEXT 30 DAYS!! Pretty BOLD statements coming from a poor gal wih very little computer knowledge or skills. I am SPEAKING these words OUT LOUD, TELLING THE UNIVERSE WHAT I WANT AND I WILL MAKE THIS HAPPEN, there is NO ALTERNATIVE. I have thrown away all my “ANDS, IFS, AND BUTS!! I WONT GIVE UP! I love this post.

  • Right now I am getting ready to move from what was my dream house into an apartment, due to financial issues. Since my move is next week, this post couldn’t come at a better time. I’m substitute teaching at all grade levels and truly enjoy children and young people of all ages. I’m looking at homes in different areas, and planning my next strategy to get my dream home, and to know how to prepare for it.

  • Wise words, although I’m more of the “work smarter, not harder” school of thought…

  • Such a great post!
    Questions to ask myself – What? Where? When?

  • Excellent post, and very well explained. I think motivation is what makes the difference between “I have to” and “I want to”. For me it’s much better doing something because I want to rather than because I have to, and that is what I see in the article too.

  • Thank you all for your nice comments!
    From your comments I really feel your energy, your motivation and committment to what you do, and this is amazing! I really love to see this in people! Keep going!
