What Motivates You To Get Up In The Morning?
What motivates you to get up in the morning? What gets you out of bed, makes you get dressed and gets you motivated for whatever the day is going to bring. Well, I suppose for most people, its money. That piece of paper get’s most people out of bed, that concept of having your money, the ability to buy objects, go places and more than anything a sense of security. But, how long does that last?
I suppose the real question you want to know is, what will motivate me? Why do I get out of bed in the morning? Well, for the first year of a ‘proper job’ it was money. Oh of course it was, money still gets me going every day, we all need it, we all have to have it to survive.
The thing is though, the motivation of money can run dry… Passion has to drive you, money will follow. What does that mean though? ‘Money will follow’ Well think about it like this. You go to work, every day… Day in, day out, sunshine, rain, clouds, good days and bad. You will get paid; you will get money for your hard work. Now, that money buys you things; it buys you life, it buys you security. However, eventually… eventually you wake up and go ‘Why do I do this? Why do I wake up every day for this?’ You see yourself becoming lazy. A lot of people though stick it out, but then you have a crisis. Money has replaced that passion that was in your heart. You interests have been replaced with work, and you just float through life.
You see in my eyes you need passion to drive you, it if passion is there you will work hard, try new things, stay motivated and then the money will follow right behind you.
I don’t want to sound like a life coach, or a motivated nut when I say ‘You Only Live Once’ yes, I know that statement is mocked, but I would think twice because you do. You must be able to live your life to the fullest, doing what motivates you to get out of bed, every single day of your life.
Stay happy, stay passionate, stay motivated and most of all enjoy life.
