You can be motivated by any external factor. Sometimes, without thinking about it, you decide to do anything as you are influenced by watching many movies, reading a book, etc. Thinking that it will benefit you in some of the other but such motivational won’t last for a long time. It’s temporary just like these days WhatsApp status are, only visible for a day that is 24 hours, just because you are being benefited, it can be in the form of money, reward or promotion or there can be many other reasons you show your willingness to do that work.

But what happens later the motivation to perform that task and your happiness won’t last for a long time, which at last will leave you completely frustrated and when you get frustrated doing something you are not enjoying at this point to some extent you start getting mentally ill. You cant reach your desired goal, which was just influenced by the external factor. 

But if the motivation within you is genuine and you have your own reason to reach your goals you know yes, I am ready for the challenges, I am ready to fight,  and there’s fighter spirit within you. Believe me, then nothing in this world can stop you to get there where you have always dreamed of being. But for that you need a very strong reason, to reach your goals.

Many of us search for many motivational videos on YouTube or attend some motivational seminars, where you hear stories of many great people you get motivated instantly. After you complete watching videos or when you step outside the hall you are someone else at that time, filled with complete positivity thinking, its time to prove, this is what you say to yourself. But that is all temporary. The very next day you just forget everything and everything just remains as it is. All the time you have to spend on getting motivated seems to be useful if you don’t make any effort to change.

Remember always whatever you decide to do in your life make sure Hundred times to yourself that surely will u be happy doing what you have decided to do. Is this all you wanted? Motivation alone is not enough, trust in working hard and surely you will head towards a successful life.
