With so many choices and options available to us today, instead of being more motivated each day, it is not uncommon for many of us to feel sluggish or deflated.
The strange thing about motivation is that is short-lived. We can be totally motivated after an event or experience and commit to doing things differently, only to find that our motivation wanes after a period of time.
The late, great motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar, once said, “People often say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing—that’s why we recommend it daily.”
We can be either internally or externally motivation. They are better known as intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. We all know that the more motivated we are, the more focus and energy we will give to the things we are doing. And more often than not, we do a better job when we have a high level of motivation for the things we are doing.
