What Underlies Motivation & Drive?Key#2

A few years ago at age 50, starting about midnight and ending at about 5pm that same day, I hiked/climbed the Grand Teton peak (13,775 feet) with a couple of my kids and some friends. It took a lot of motivation and drive, yet there was something else fueling the motivation and that was purpose. My purpose was a desire for adventure, to conquer a challenge, reach a goal, to connect with family, and with myself, God, and His creations. Let's look a little closer at the underlying power of purpose.

Key #2 - Motivation & Drive: A purpose can be discovered in everything that happens. Seeing the purpose in things, and aligning with our purpose provides us with a strong source of motivation and drive. When we have a clear understanding of our purpose, we become more committed and enthusiastic about the work we do. Challenges and setbacks become opportunities for growth and learning rather than obstacles. Our purpose acts as a constant source of energy and inspiration, it fuels our perseverance, helping us stay focused and resilient in pursuing our goals.

Alice: “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”

The Cheshire Cat: “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”

Alice: “I don’t much care where.”

The Cheshire Cat: “Then it doesn’t much matter which way you go.” – Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Invitation: Take time to consider 2-3 specific areas of your life and write the following: What do I want to accomplish and why (what is the purpose)?

By connecting what you really want to the real purpose, you'll find added energy, motivation, passion and endurance to reach even extraordinary goals!
