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.

How true, I got the above from another blog, but i can't remember the URL anymore.
It's just another cloudy day, as always.
