There’s another version to this question which was popularized in a TV commercial in the Philippines during the 90s. The line was “what drives you?”.
So… what does?
Every person I’ve met has a different response to this question. Some would say family, others would say ambition, and a handful would say fame and fortune. Personally, I think I have answered this question differently on various occassions. My response would depend on the circumstance I was in at that time. There was even a time when I replied – does it even matter?
But first, what is motivation? Let me share my personal definition.
Motivation for me is that invisible push that helps you move forward. It is that strong urge that you feel within yourself that cannot be seen, felt, or at times, cannot be understood by others. No matter what it is, it plays an important role in our journey to living a successful life. It is something that cannot be given to you. It is something you have to find out for yourself. But, once you find it, it can make a big difference.
Today, i encourage you to find that one thing that motivates you. Feel it, understand it, nurture it, and let it guide you to the success that you are looking for.
