3 Reasons Why Motivation Alone Won't Make You Successful

Motivation from within

We may be inspired by other people’s stories, but the greatest motivation will always come from within.

You will need a strong conviction or internal driving force in order to build a life of success. That drive can only stem from what’s important to you, what is relevant in your life, and what affects you in a profound way.

Key Ideas

Motivation is limited

Nobody is ever motivated all the time. Life has a way of presenting us with obstacles and challenges that can really throw us for a loop.

So, if motivation is temporary this means you must have other resources in place that will help achieve the success you desire. 

Motivation from within

We may be inspired by other people’s stories, but the greatest motivation will always come from within.

You will need a strong conviction or internal driving force in order to build a life of success. That drive can only stem from what’s important to you, what is relevant in your life, and what affects you in a profound way.

Motivation and action

Motivation without action is simply hype. Unless you do something every day that brings you closer towards your goals, you will not accomplish anything at all.

Nobody ever motivated their way towards their dreams. They acted because of their motivation and were able to reach their version of success.

Focus On The Meaning

We find motivation when something is meaningful. Meaning is much bigger than the enjoyment of a moment. It can include something we don't like. Soldiers risk being killed every day to serve their country. New parents handle poop daily for years.

Meaningful things give us purpose. This means doing something that serves a larger cause than yourself or, at least, making a contribution in your own world.

Tasks that do not seem meaningful

When a task you have to do doesn't seem meaningful, reframe your experience. You may not always be able to change what you have to do but you can change how you view it. When you look at it in light of how it helps others, you'll often find motivation.

You're not "filling out boring paperwork, you're helping people get the insurance that could save their life. You're not slaving over a hot stove, you're showing your family how much you love them.

True practice and learning force you to deeply examine the chinks in your armor. You are only as strong as your weakest link. In a world that tells you to ignore your weaknesses, true practitioners do the opposite.
