Motivation is one singular factor that differentiates failure and success. Remove motivation and see the economy of the whole world crumble.

Big doors they say swings on small hinges. So also are all worthwhile success and achievements solely relying on motivation.

Do you think we will all be on this hubpage today sharing ideas if not for some sorts of motivating factors that pushed the brain behind this into action?

Ok! How many times have you been so weak and tired to get up from bed on Monday morning and go to work but, still manage to get up some and go to work? Who was it that forced you out of bed? Hohoho

Exactly! You are absolutely right, MOTIVATION! MOTIVATION!! MOTIVATION!!! It could be the motivation that comes from the fact that you have those that look up to you for their daily bread – whatever. But, the fact still remains that motivation is the key factor that led you to ACTION.

Now, imagine how this beautiful world of ours will look like if motivation to do anything is removed. I can bet my fortune ‘that you are praying for that not to happen’ but, what if it happens?

Did I hear you say God forbid? Then, learn how to get motivated, stay motivated and keep the dream alive.


  • Make love the basis of all what you do. Of all the emotions that we feel as human beings, LOVE happens to be the one that has the strongest influence on our motivation. In other words, love is the strongest motivating factor we have. We are ready to do anything just to see our loved ones happy.

I don’t know if you are in agreement with this my thinking but, I think that most inventions made were propelled by the desire of the inventor(s) to meet the need of loved ones. It is possible that the person that invented phone did it out of the need to keep in touch with a loved one

Loving what you do is another way of harnessing the power of love to get motivated. This will make you know what you are doing. The logic is simple; if you love what you are doing, you will get better at doing it and the fact that you are good at what you are doing will make you want to do more – that is motivation.

  • Conjure a negative mental picture of what will happen if you fail to take action. This is to say that FEAR can motivate one into action. A word of caution here, know that we have two kinds of fear – “destructive and negative fear” the later is what I am recommending here.

This is what some people refer to as ‘fear of the unknown’. You don’t let your fear drive you into your shell. Rather, let it ignite that sleeping fire-power in you.

  • Take stock of your achievement(s). The simple act of looking back at your achievements and nod your head will motivate you beyond your widest imagination. This however should be used with caution so as not to fall prey of the trap of complacency.

You will agree with me that the whole thing we have been discussing thus far boils down to one thing – SUCCESS. Motivation brings about action which in turn brings result (success). Success only comes by doing.

According to WILL ROGERS, becoming successful is quite simple “know what you are doing, love what you are doing, and believe in what you are doing”

One last word before I go, Never Allow That Tiny Line between Success and Failure Be Found Wanting in Your Life. Get motivated, stay motivated and enjoy all the good things of life – including those that money cannot buy.

To your motivated life
