A running commentary of ideas

Friday, November 29, 2013



Motivation is the fuel that drives you – you have to think positively, know what you are going to do and why – and have the energy to do it.

Motivation isn’t permanent, it needs to be nourished daily – and you can never achieve happiness (which adds significantly to motivation) when you are not helping others.  Helping others makes you feel good – makes you feel better about yourself, which is highly motivating.

If that sounds circular – it is.  Others have said:  It is attitude, not aptitude that determines altitude.  It’s how you see yourself – and how you see yourself in relation to others and to the tasks at hand.
Someone said (I can’t recall where I read it):  “You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”
