Whatever path we choose, whether artistic, business or domestic, or a combination of all the above, there is usually a drive that comes from deep within that "launches" us onto that path. An invisible force that makes us get up every day and continue on, no matter how hard it gets along the way. It can come from inspiration and a feeling of bliss, but it can also stem from those moments when we have felt our lowest, and now we are determined to prove to ourselves, and the world, that we can achieve what we have set out to accomplish.
That invisible force is our motivation. Some people have it in excess, others tend to loose a sense of it once in a while. I would say, most of us experience disappointments that just make us want, at times, to give up. Then, we pull ourselves together and get back on track. Self-motivation is a cultivated life- long pursuit. If we feel that certain choices are not aiding us on our road to self-actualization than we consider establishing other motives to drive us onward.
We are curious to ask our readers: what about you? What is your motivation? What drives you to pursue your goals and dreams? If you had negative experiences as a driving force how did you manage to turn them around into positive motivators?
