I took the road less traveled, and that has made all the difference.- Robert Frost

It is so important to have motivation in all areas of life. Without being motivated, the simplest tasks would fall to the wayside, making our life not as pleasant to live. The more important things in life would never be realized without motivation. We would have no food, no clothes, or wouldn't be motivated enough to even get dressed or showered. We most certainly wouldn't be motivated enough to make an income for ourselves. Motivation can make or break you. All to often in my line of work, I have seen this, and it is extremely tragic for all family members involved.

You see, motivation is not a given gift, I believe it is something learned and cultivated. Through our daily chores, boundaries and rules, we are taught from a very early age to have motivation. Motivation to complete a task, earn praise, or a reward for having achieved your goal. If this is not achieved, we are reprimanded and disciplined. Unfortunately not everybody is taught this way. Some are raised with little or no boundaries.

This prepares us for the next large step, which is school. They teach you more about motivation through learning how to create goals for yourself, and how to have the motivation to achieve those goals. That is the biggest lesson I believe that is taught in school. I used to believe school was just about Mathematics, or History, but the lessons taught go much deeper.

Where boundaries, chores, and discipline are lacking...usually motivation is lacking as well.
If you keep your eye on the end result, it drives you to succeed. Motivation is the thing that drives you forward, and helps you achieve your dreams. Never lose site of the pot at the end of the rainbow, and never lose site of your motivation-it will carry you forward to achieve all of your dreams!!!
