It’s Monday morning. The alarm rings. What’s the first thought that comes to mind when you open your eyes?
“I really don’t want to go to work today”, “I have such a long day ahead”, or “Yes! It’s a brand new week ahead! Looking forward to getting lots done.”
Ask yourself this question. What is it that made you feel unmotivated?
You must know of people who have been doing the same thing for years and seem to not have any problem staying stagnant. Whether it be in their marriage, job, or personal endeavors, they seem to be getting along just fine without progressing towards anything ‘better’.
On the other hand, you would also know of individuals who focus on the positive, set goals and are constantly pushing themselves to greater heights. Be it promotions at work, building a family, celebrating milestones in their marriage or relationships, upgrading houses.
So what’s the difference between these 2 category of individuals?
It is the force, that keeps driving you forward to overcome challenges and obstacles to achieve your goals.
Without meaning, there is no direction for your energy to be focused on.
Yet, having a meaningful objective doesn’t mean you have to change the world or create A huge impact on society. The secret to meaningful work is simple: it should contribute value to something or someone that matters to you.
Happiness need not be a vague term or illusion that you’re constantly chasing after–with no end in sight. By finding your true motivation, you’ll be one step closer to realizing your happiness and finding meaning in all things you do.
