Not too long ago, I had a great conversation about motivation with one of the guests who came on to the Greatness Project.
I asked this guest about what media motivated him the most, and he gave us a great answer.
Motivation Begins From Within
Essentially, the guest made the case for motivation hacks (external motivation) as being something that can be very temporary or cyclical. He alluded to one of Zig Ziglar’s famous quote regarding motivation, which is “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing, that’s why we recommend it daily.” It was a point that I agreed with. Motivation hacks are external.
Now the main point that my guest made, was that true motivation always begins from within. And that our strongest motivation will come when we have a crystal-clear vision of exactly what it is that we are trying to accomplish.
After thinking more in depth about the response the guest gave, I decided that I do agree with him. The basis of motivation comes from within. And if our internal motivation is weak, it won’t matter what kind of external motivation we apply to our lives. Without a strong clear vision of what we want, we ultimately won’t be able to follow through to arrive at our intended destination.
Internal motivation, without a doubt is the most important starting point for all achievement.
Internal + External Motivation = Optimal Motivation
With that being said, I also believe there is such a thing as optimal motivation. What is optimal motivation you ask? Well, it is the state of maintaining the highest level of intensity and drive towards the achieving of one’s goals in the least amount of time.
As such, optimal motivation can be achieved when we combine both a strong and clear vision for what we want to do, with external stimulus to keep us primed for moving forward at the pace and intensity in which we began our quest to achieve our grand goals.
In other words, we can always use external motivation as the kick in the pants we need to stay on track to achieve our goals with the enthusiasm and within the time frames we initially set out to achieve them.
