IMPORTANCE OF MOTIVATION IN LIFE

Two things are essential for a person to achieve his/her goals in life.

  • One is wisdom
  • Another is a constant motivation

While wisdom is an innate character, constant motivation is conditioned.

  • MOTIVATION

Goals are the stepping stones toward your dreams. So, to achieve them, you need the motivation to keep you chugging along towards them.

Not everyone is born with motivation. But motivation is important for everyone. Motivation is the presence of purpose and desire to achieve daily life, career, and business goals. For example, Motivation helps us get up early and become productive. There are thousands of motivations around us. Such as motivation from books, motivation from quotes, motivation from the seminar, motivation from water, motivation from trees, motivation from kids, motivation from parents, motivation from teachers, etc. But we can’t identify all of them.

It’s because we are not connected with a sense of motivation. The sense of motivation is the greatest thing that comes to our hearts and mind equally many times a day. But most of us are failed to get it. A sense of motivation is the key to various achievements in our life.

When I lose the sense of motivation and the sense to prove something as a basketball player, it’s time for me to move away from the game.”- Michael Jordan.

The sense of motivation is an impression and cognition that can happen accidentally or anytime during the day or night. We get the highest motivation when our sense of purpose connects with our sense of motivation. For example, your sense of motivation gets activated when you see motivational videos. And it starts connecting with the sense of purpose. That’s why we watch motivational videos, and people recommend watching motivational stories and speeches. Motivation helps to achieve goals and dreams in life, career, and business. This is why motivated people are more productive and use time efficiently.

You can also say that motivation is the Intent, or reason behind something. Why do you learn? Why do you write? There are reasons behind every action. One of the reasons is MOTIVE.

  • Importance of motivation in education
    Motivation is important for teachers and students. Motivated teachers inspire students to focus. And students motivated for learning inspire teachers to teach. Teaching is a selfless practice.
  • You can’t get motivation from a salary for teaching. There are many teachers in India to teach students freely, or with very minimum wages; they are not motivated by salary and their job. They are motivated to explore the creativity in students. They are motivated to put smiles on students’ faces. They are motivated to build their careers. They train them to fight any kind of career and life problems.
  • The impact of motivation on students is up to a large extent that it can bring out extraordinary talents in ordinary students.

I think teachers and students need motivation because they are country developers. If country developers are not motivated, then you can see that it takes many years to become develop.

Finally, ending this with an inspirational story of WILMA RUDOLF.

Rudolph suffered from several early childhood illnesses, including pneumonia and scarlet fever, and contracted infantile paralysis (caused by the poliovirus) at the age of five. She recovered from polio but lost strength in her left leg and foot. Physically disabled for much of her early life, Rudolph wore a leg brace until she was twelve. With constant support and motivation from her mother, she became the fastest woman in the world in the 1960s and the first American woman, to win three gold medals in a single Olympic Games.
