The True Cost Of A Lack of Motivation
And what a lack of motivation means..
As you read this article you will start to understand why a lack of motivation is costing you even more than you realize.
As you read the story below notice how much you have in common with me...
Growing up I never really had much trouble getting things done. I was told what to do by my parents or by my teachers and I did what was expected of me because it was the easiest choice for me.
Getting punished never appealed to me very much.
Then as I got older and especially when I joined the workforce I could get away with doing less and with leaving things until the deadline approached.
In fact in one company where I worked it made no sense finishing work before the deadlines because management kept moving the goal posts.
And very often I worked with people who refused to stretch themselves. This culture of doing as little as you can and appearing to be productive slowly dragged me down.
Over the years as a result of experiences like these I developed bad habits.
One of those habits was a lack of motivation habit.
I can see now how a few bad choices in how I approached work affected all aspects of my life.
The same may be true for you...
What we did over the years was create bad habits that need to be given up and replaced with a new way of behaving.
Do you realize what these bad habits have cost you in your life?
1. You missed the sense of accomplishment and the satisfaction that comes with succeeding on a big scale.
2. You lost the respect of your peers and you are excluded from the winners circle.
3. You no longer feel in control of your destiny and in fact you are a victim of circumstance.
4. You earn far less than people of lesser intelligence and ability.
5. You worry about the future because you fear you may not be able to deal with things.
A lack of motivation is a bad habit you can and must change.
Now is the time to take charge of this situation. I can tell you from my own experience that nothing will change until you decide to change.
And nothing will improve until you improve it...
You owe it to yourself and to the people who care about you to seize the day and make your life something to be proud of.
The satisfaction that comes from living life on your own terms is a wonderful gift you deserve to enjoy. And you will only have this once you know how to motivate yourself to create the life you dream of.
My income jumped, my social life improved dramatically and new opportunities for having even more of what I wanted all came about for me. But only after I learned the secrets of self-motivation and how to kill a lack of motivation.
The world did not change. Other people did not change. I changed.
Only When YOU change will your world change for the better.
Before I go...
Think of those people who look down on your lack of progress and take you for granted. Think of that sense you have of not been in control.
All of these feelings of dissatisfaction are not going to disappear-- in fact they will dominate your life as the years pass you by.
These issues are not going to go away all by themselves.
I tried the wait and see approach - it does not work!
Thankfully there is a solution, a proven way of taking charge of your life and developing self-motivation.
*** Motivation is an essential life skill and you can discover how to be motivated and stay motivated. ***

Becoming Rich in Your Own Way
If you really want to become rich, then begin by evaluating your work habits and work environment. That's how most millionaires made their first million.

If you run a business like I do, you probably have limited time to do all the things you need to do each day.

Our Life ? Our Choice
OK, maybe that's a bit of an overgeneralization but it applies most of the time. Basically, what I am saying is that we are what we are because that's what we've decided to be. We live where we live, do what we do and think what we think because that's we've decided to do. Yes, I understand that there are some illnesses and other stuff that happens that tends to force us into a particular mode of operation. But by the same token, how we function within our situation and how we deal with the things we need to deal with is always our decision.
Day Dream Believer
I am sure you, just like the rest of us, experienced all sorts of day dreams when you were younger.

You know how that story went.
