The Need For Motivation

There are days when we don't feel like doing what we ought to do. There are times when the only thing which seems to surround us is the darkness, cast by failure. Even the greats had had their shares of lows in their life. So what is the thing which drives a person even when his/her chips are down? What is that force which moves a person to his/her dreams, even when everyone else seems to have given up hopes on him? There maybe different terms given by different people. The spiritual group would give one name while the opulent class may coin another term. But if you ask me, I would call it as motivation.

It is the thing which acts as a catalyst to get your energy level and your subsequent actions to a whole another level. Do you think the legends were feeling lethargic while working on their respective crafts? Do you reckon Roger Federer would have won his 19th Grand Slam, had he not loved the process of sweating it out for hours in the practice courts? Maybe some might have views which could be very much opposite to mine.

Well, I maybe wrong. I've never claimed my opinions to be totally right. But don't you feel that motivation is one of the biggest element behind one's success. Every single day when we get up in the morning, we've got a quick decision to make out of the possible 2 options- Either to go back to the dreamland or get up and do the things required. Now I presume that you fall in the later category. So what do you think is the reason behind others pressing the snooze button when the morning alarm rings?

The answer is simple- They lack the motivation to get up. They don't know what will they be doing after getting up from the bed. It is motivation which helps you to achieve your personal freedom. It is motivation which energizes and pumps you up when you encounter a new challenge in life. It presents a reason on why you've got to do a specific thing. I don't know what your 'Why' is. It might be to get out of destitution, or making your parents proud, or proving others wrong who had doubted on your skills and abilities or to bring light to others' life or whatever. You must have observed a sea- change in the way you respond to the obstacles if you are motivated enough to wither any storm which comes in your way.

I personally like to read positive books and articles to motivate myself. Even when I write articles in this blog, it fuels me to walk the talk. 'The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari' is the most inspiring book I've ever come across in my life and I highly recommend you to read it. The day when you get motivated, I am sure that you will achieve great heights, but I urge you that when you find people who are exactly in the same position you ones used to find yourself to be, please make sure that you help them.

The 2X3X Mindset

Does the title seems to be a bit abstruse. Let me break it down for you. This is something which I learned a few moths ago and guess what? It is doing wonders in my life! This principle states that if you want to double your income and your impact in your organisation, then you must triple your investment in your self-development. 

You can't be progressing in your career if you are not willing to work on yourself and strive to be a better version of yourself with each passing day. What you'll have 2 years from now, 5 years from now,10 years from now solely depends on what you become and what are the things which you are willing to sacrifice today.

 Your income hardly exceeds your self worth and once you acknowledge this very fact, you'll start realising that there is a very urgent need to start learning new skills and be very competitive.

There are innumerable things which are out there in the world which can aide you reach your desired position. Being a bibliophile, I strong…

Pablo Picasso And The Lady

Once, one of the greatest painters of all times, Pablo Picasso was in a market place. A lady saw him and said 'Mr Picasso, it's great to see you. I am a big fan of yours'. He said 'Nice to meet you'.The lady pulled out a piece of paper and a pencil and she said 'Mr Picasso, can you do a bit of art for me? Can you do a bit of drawing for me'? She asked in a voice which didn't seem to take a No for an answer. Picasso said 'absolutely'.

 He quickly drew something and gave it to her. The lady looked at the drawing and she certainly was impressed by his art 'Oh Picasso, fantastic. This the best piece of drawing I've ever had', the lady said. After saying that, she starts walking away. Picasso called her and said 'Ah! my dear lady, that will be a million dollars.' The lady, obviously shell- shocked by that statement looked at him and said 'Picasso. A million dollars? It took you just 30 seconds to do that'. He said 'My d…

Don't Quit- Poem

Since last few days I've been listening to various poems by the budding poets around the globe and enjoyed most of them. But then I came across this one which was so serene and motivating, that I really couldn't resist myself from sharing it with you guys. It somewhat goes like this:

When things go wrong as they sometimes will When the road you're trudging seems all uphill When the funds are low and the debts are high And you want to smile, but you have to sigh. When care is pressing you down a bit,  Rest, if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with it's twists and turns, As everyone of us sometimes learns And many a failure turns about, When he might have won had he stuck it out; Don't give up though the pace seems low You may succeed with another blow Often the gold is nearer than, It seems to be a faint and faltering man. Often the struggler has given up When he might have captured the victor's cup And he learnt too late when the night slipped down, How close he …
