I have written multiple times about success, and how it varies from one person to another. However, I have been wondering: Is motivation related to success?
Sometimes I think it does, sometimes I think it doesn’t. Motivation can be hard to maintain from time to time. It’s taxing to give all your focus and effort into just one task, especially if it is something that you do on an everyday basis.
When it comes to recovering your motivation, you have to find it within something related to what you enjoy doing. As much as I enjoy writing and typing words into a document to help my clients reach their goals, there are times when I don’t feel like writing at all. As a copywriter, I want to let you know that it is completely ok.
However, it is also important to keep in mind that being successful is all about being consistent. Even when you feel like you want to lay around the house and do nothing, you still need to do what is necessary to reach your personal or business goals. Finding the determination to keep going even when you don’t feel like it is what will make you a successful person.
A good trick I learned is to keep up with your everyday tasks that go beyond your work life. Something that keeps me going is a daily to-do list that will keep me organized. By using this regularly, I know what I have to do in a day, as well as discover the best ways to coordinate my everyday activities.
Motivation can also be found in unexpected places. Whenever I decide to take a walk with my puppies on a whim, it becomes easier to make use of a fresh perspective and get back in the game. However, I cannot force myself to look at things differently whenever I do this; the change in perspective comes naturally.
Finding motivation will make the path to success easier, but they are not correlated to one another. Therefore, trying to be motivated at all times can burn you out. Try to be consistent and you will see how incredible and effective you will become!
