Have you ever felt like you can’t get what you want? You look at other people and see everything that they have and want it for yourself, but can’t seem to achieve it? Why is it that some people seem to have everything, and you struggle to have the basic things?

Maybe you have thought a great deal about what you want but you haven’t bothered to do anything about it? Well, the greatest ideas are just that - ideas. Ideas don’t stack up to anything unless you put some action behind them. But how do you get motivated enough to carry out your action?  

Motivation is the secret to great success; however it is also the hardest concept to explain. The first thing that you need to know about motivation is that you must have a goal in mind. It can be simple, something like, “getting started in real estate” or maybe something a little more complex such as “doing 12 wholesale real estate deals in the next 6 months“. Whatever your goal is, there must be something that you want to accomplish badly enough and have a strong desire to achieve.  

Once you have a goal set, you must have a reason for wanting to achieve it. What’s your “Why?” There must be something in it for you. By nature, humans do not typically do anything unless there is something in it for them. Perhaps your motivation is something as simple as bragging rights, being able to say that you did it. Or maybe your motivation is helping someone else, or making more money? Prosperity? Financial Freedom? Whatever it is, it doesn’t matter as long as you have a reason for wanting to reach your goal.  

The third thing that you need to consider when it comes to motivation is that motivation is simply what gives purpose and direction to any behavior. If you really don’t care about doing something, you will not be truly motivated and therefore will not achieve the goal. However, if you have a motivation that drives you, you will achieve the goal. The idea is simply that if you want something bad enough, you will be most likely be driven to achieve it.  

If you can’t seem to reach your goals, and are struggling with motivation maybe you should ask yourself if you truly want to do what it is that you are telling yourself you want to. If you do not have the proper motivation, you will not be able to push yourself to achieve those goals. Make 2009 a great year and take action! That’s where it all begins, in those “hold your nose and jump moments!”
