This is the question I asked in Quora. I got the great answers from people. About 50 answers and getting more. Sarya quoted that ” You are allowed to scream , You are allowed to cry, but do not give up” . And Debadipa from India answered well. She says my motivation are my parents they are amazing and I can not be here without their support and inspiration. She continues ” I have a coolest dad , He is my best friend. My mum is the sweetest lady who’s really pretty. They are my role model, inspiration, motivation and everything”. Her answer have about 1400 views and 41 up voted. And Malar answered the same and she believes her MUM is her best MOTIVATION.
Another person says ” When I wake up in the morning and I find I am alive , I am able to breathe, there is sun in the sky, I am able to see , listen and walk , that motivates me much “.
Martin says ” Your heartbeat. It’s alive. You are alive. As long as you have a LIFE to LIVE , don’t quit”. This is also related what Anand says ” LIFE ITSELF , everything around me motivates me , He brought up a quote for us from Sadhgutu Jaggi Vasudev : ” Motivation lies within every breathe you take. The word motivation is a myth. You are alive and life in this whole cosmos is going on is a reality“.
There were other awesome answers to this question also, But brought up my question here to my beautiful followers and friends and whoever reading this blog now. What is your best motivation in life? Is it your money? Is it your family or friends or particular person? Is it life itself ? Is it routine of this life and thanking of what you have is perfectly motivates me? I asked this question to inspire us and help us whatever we have in life is a gift. It is a real gift that no one can even offer us back this one again accept the ONE who designed us.
For me the most and best thing that motivates me is to help others. Yes , My mum is a hero , She is the strongest human I know and without her I won’t be here today. But there is a reason for it. She helped me in this world so now my task is help others to know what was the reason behind that. Mum said ” by His grace I am here today “. That was the reason she was strong. I want introduce you to the Love of God and His fullness will give you meaning in your life.
No rules can help you without knowing who He is and what He is done for you.
This was the same question the young rich man had from Jesus( Book of Matthew 19 : 16-22 ). He asked Him. Rabbi , what do I do to get eternal life? We are so desperate for the life after death. Because we had enough of this life. We had enough of negativity and war in this miserable world. The same question we ask God. Even may our rational mind to stop it. Even may we do not believe there is a God with all suffering in this world . We ask: God How can I get to you? I am tired of this world. The young rich man asked exactly this question : How can get to you in there? I am motivated enough in this world and have confidence to ask this question. I want to be perfect , how can I be the one you want me to be? How can I be perfect and whole?
You know what Jesus’ answer was. ” your money can’t get you there, Follow Me “.
Following him is the best way to motivate humanity.
If you want to be motivated talk to him , listen what He says , walk with him in all your ways in this world. Yes there is a time to be down because we are living in sinful world and we can not avoid it anyway. If you want to be perfect follow him and submit all your ways to Father in Heaven. You can not find this perfect motivation in carnal mind but instead having a spiritual mindset. The young rich man said ” What do I still lack? “. We lack his presence in our life. We are following our selfish way everyday without asking Him for help. We need to look at a permanent motivation. Small and everyday motivation will comes and goes. Life itself gives you enough energy to move on. Proverbs says ” Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding”. Walking up every morning and saying I trust you God in all my ways. Please lead me today and lift up my motivation for everything I do.
Psychologist Jordan Peterson quotes ” Don’t underestimate the power of vision and direction. These are irresistible forces, able to transform what might appear to be unconquerable obstacles into traversable pathways and expanding opportunities. Strengthen the individual. Start with yourself “.
Start with yours with believing to supernatural things in your life. Not by our own power and ability but the Spirit of God.
Jesus in Matthew says “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible“.
What is your best motivation in your life ?
