Motivation – The Art of Getting What You Want

How to use confidence and technique to get what you want from life, your relationships and your career


The term ‘motivation’ has been derived from the word ‘motive’. Motive may be defined as an inner state of our mind that activates and directs our behavior. Basically motivation can be defined very simply as the willingness to exert towards the accomplishment of goal or need. Its an art to how to get things in your life what you want.

It’s a process aimed at accomplishing some goals. Almost all human behavior is motivated. You don’t need to motivated to eat,drink etc. Motives prompt people to action. It provide an activating thrust towards reaching a goal.

Motives generally create a state of physiological or psychological imbalance. Motivation is the act of stimulating someone or oneself to get a desired course of action.

Motivation is an ability to do what needs to be done, without influence from other people or situations. People with self motivation can find a reason and strength to complete a task, even when challenging, without giving up or needing another to encourage them.

If you want anything in your life and for that you will start working on that direction that is what you called motivation. For that you don’t need to do any special course or something very extra-ordinary, you just need to concentrate on your goal and work on that project. Do not give up at any time. Whether the time is in your favor or not , Always work and work.


  1. I think motivation or a lack thereof can really make or break you. Motivation comes with a sense of “importance”. For me I would have little or no motivation to do things that are not worthy of my time or that doesn’t interest me which is completely normal. You are also right when you said people with self motivation can find a reason and strength to complete a task, even when facing a challenge. That is my attitude towards most situations in life.

  2. Thanks for sharing this. Yes motivation is an interesting subject especially as we are all motivated in different ways. I find that my motivation fluctuates and on the days I am struggling I give myself bite size tasks to do. I find that the hardest thing is getting started so If I focus on getting a small task done it kicks me into gear and I end up doing more then I planned to do. Would love to hear more on what motivates you. Thanks again.

  3. Great post. Motivation can be tricky sometimes. For example sometimes I lack the motivation to work out! But … I motivate myself to do it. It is essential otherwise we wouldn’t get anything done. I find motivation to work on my blog much easier. Perhaps because it’s my passion. That helps me to stay motivated. Thanks for the inspiration to stay motivated and keep going.

  4. Very good subject! Having motivation is essential to get things done, indeed. I would add that for me works more intrinsic motivation (which implies my internal satisfaction) than extrinsic one (financial or some other rewards).
