What Is Motivation?

Motivation is that wonderful little thing deep inside of you that has you make goals. work towards those goals, keep working towards those goals even when it becomes hard, and strive to reach those goals.

It is the thing that makes you successful in whatever you choose to do. It is what make a student graduate with honors. It's that extra something that makes a person write that best selling book. It's that something deep inside that makes a person successful.

Why is motivation important? It helps you work towards goals. Heck, it makes you set goals to work towards. I think that without motivation we would still be living in caves and carrying big sticks.

Motivation is important.
