The Link to Motivation
By Catherine Pulsifer, © 2007
Is there a link between motivation and success? Mario Andretti, a successful Italian American racing driver, said, "Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal -- a commitment to excellence -- that will enable you to attain the success you seek." So, if you have desire do you then have motivation? Mr Andretti points out it is more than just desire, you also need determination and commitment to your goal to achieve success.
If you have the desire, determination, and commitment, you'll find a way to achieve your goal. Your commitment will determine your chances of success. It allows you to see the finish line because you believe that you will reach it. But, if your commitment is feeble, or your determination is unsteady, your chances for accomplishment are slim. You may find yourself using the excuse that it is impossible.
and if we had sufficient will we should always have sufficient means.
It is often merely for an excuse that we say things are impossible."
Francois La Rochefoucauld
With a powerful desire, with a strong determination, and with a commitment to yourself, you can find ways to achieve your goals, and overcome challenges. If you have one without the other, than your chances for success are diminished. When determining your goal and your motivation, ask yourself:
- Do you have a burning desire? Is this something you can't wait to do? You will want to do this in all your spare time you have, and you will enjoy doing it?
- Are you determined to succeed? Do you believe that you can do it?
- Are you ready to make a commitment? Will you not let other daily interuptions distract you?
If your answers to the above are all yes, then you are half-way to success. And, you do have all the links to motivation!
