Reflections – Motivation

In the words of the American writer Raymond Chandler, “Motivation determines what you do.”

Starting with an understanding of why we are motivated to do something – being clear about our motivation as it were – allows us to harness the desire as we prepare for the endeavour in question. Connecting with the motivation we have within our heart, soul, mind or even head, we can set forth on bringing into being our dreams or goals.

Whether we wish to build a structure to be remembered by, create an institution or undertake any number of other and certainly no less meaningful activities, motivation needs to be present.

On a daily basis our decisions might be tested by the appearance of difficulties and setbacks. And oftentimes it is easier to give up, settle for what we have right now rather than struggle on for what could be.

Yet if we are honest with ourselves we know the ‘playing small’ won’t make us feel secure, content or even happy for very long. If we have it in us to dream, invariably we can bring it about or at least find satisfaction and maybe also fulfillment in attempting to do so.
