It is said that if a person is motivated, he or she can do a lot better work. However, sometimes you do not find lot of people who are there to motivate you. In such case do you look for someone who can motivate you. Or do you find some other ways to keep yourself motivated? Please share your views here. Happy MyLotting...!

It's kind of difficult if you just rely on someone to motivate you. I believe the good motivation will be from your own self. However of course motivation will be there if you have a passion for what you do. And finding a passion itself in job can be a hard thing to do. But I feel my hobby is what keep me for always being motivated.

It's not that I need someone to motivate me, but there are times am better on things I do because I know there's people expecting me to come out with that result. Don't rely always on other's to motivate you.. You might end up depending on them and feel weak when they're not around. But in case there's no one- I can honestly say am still able to do things well. It's a matter of believing yourself.. If you know you are able to do it- then do it!

Believing in yourself is one great motivation factor one should have. Who would else do if we don't?

Hello, The first word I would like to say "Yes". In this real life, we need to have someone to motivate us. There are many things in life, something bad, something good, something unhappy, something happy, ... So, if we have someone motivative, we will live better. Someone stay beside you or someone in your thought, your mind will be stronger. May God bless you, all! :)

I usually self motivate myself by reading some good articles or books, or a good movie can motivate me too. Sometimes I just go out for a walk, look at the nature, or even look at my lovely children, all these motivate me too. Sometimes I just sit down, talk to myself quietly or write down my thoughts, it's like talking to myself can also motivate me.

I find that if I get motivation from outside or from outside circumstances, I suffer by giving up what I really want to do. Perhaps in some areas where something has to be done for a greater good, I wouldn't mind being pulled by other people towards their cause because most of the time the cause they are going for was already something I didn't know I resonated with.

Hi friend, it is not a good practice to search some one to get motivation, we must get self motivation by our self. We all have lot of dreams and desires and working hard to achieve them. Some of us achieve our dreams with our hard work and luck, some other tried our maximum to achieve it, but we don't have the ability to reach it due to our luck. Since luck is also an important factor which determines our life. Not all the talented persons have the ability to shine in their life, the person who had luck and got a chance to express his talent as well as expressed it in a good manner and succeeded with it will shine in life. Some people will get continuous failure in all their attempt due to their luck, but we don't give up our try. We must try our maximum with our efforts, surely we will get luck one day and achieve our dream with it. We must get motivation from our failures, don't get depressed with failure and give up your try. Our efforts, hard work, determination with luck will help us to achieve our success one day. If we give up our try, we don't have the ability to get success. Some times it is really hard to accept our failure, if we lost it in a little margin, but we must be sportive and learn lesson from this failure. This kind of failures are our experience which lead us to do our work in a good way. Cheer up and get motivation from your failures to achieve your goal. Nothing is impossible to a willing heart.

Hi... In my case it's important to have a person that can motivate you but not necessary.. Mostly there's no somebody there for you.. lucky to have one if there's one who have that person concerned to motivate you.. for me, I can motivate myself through reading my Bible and even listening to positive advice and preachings... We need to motivate and evaluate ourselves because it's for our own good. I have my mentor to motive me if i'm doing right or if i'm not doing well she will.. remind me... i have that elders in our church who love me and concern about my spiritual growth... God bless you

It is always better if someone motivates.But as it is not always possible, I feel take god as the motivator. Whenever I am in such a situation, I tell god (in mind) -- I wish to do so and so -- please help me in achieving success. I have seen things happen nicely. Thus, I feel god is the best person to keep me motivated.

I don't need motivating most of the time but then there are those times when i just can't make it. I have to keep telling myself that i will get to the end and motivate myself. It is very hard to find someone to motivate you and help you through the hard times.

No I don't. I motivate myself and guess what? My big motivations are money and my family. When I know that I will get money from a task and when I know this will be good for my family, I am all for it. Of course, it should be that kind of work that is clean and legal.

Hey, Is a well asked question. If i could rate it i would really give it 10/10. Motivating generally is defined as a driving force that initiates and directs behavior. For me its the inner push that helps me to achieve anything. It does change our mental thought of a matter. It really depends upon the person who are motivating us. Not everyone needs to be motivated or would try motivating his/her friend. Now let me answer your question to the point, motivation really helps me. If i can't do a thing someone can make me do it through motivation. I have received motivation in many parts of my life which has even become a turning point of my life. My brother do really motivates me. I personally know a manager who says that he gets a lot more output just by motivating his employees a week. This is my opinion and i would really like to read all user's response in this topic. Happy Mylotting.

Not necessarily someone or something can motivate me. I had been strong since I was young though I make a lot of bad decisions. I am also gullible sometimes but I just motivate myself. I do self talking if needed. There are times that people or things or situations or promises that motivate me but I don't depend on them. I had been working on to control my life to have a great future. But now that I have a husband, and soon will be having a baby, I can say my husband plays a great part in comforting and making my day great. He motivates me in ways I don't expect motivating.

I don't generally need motivation but I do need a challenge. I have never lacked motivation to write, but when I was in a writing class and having my writing analysed then it definitely improved! I write for money and I write for pleasure, these are motivations enough for me.

It is necessary ,not prerequisite,for someone who cannot tap his potential by himself . But we must remember that your own upward mobility is the most important factor which makes you to be a successful person .

As I see it in life we are constantly interacting and absorbing ideas from others or from our experiences to different situations.We also have our close family and loved ones.all of these tend to motivate us, it is not any one person or any one objective but the process of living itself that motivates us to perform better..

This discussion made me reflect on my actions. I don't feel motivated at all. Is it because I am already contented with what I have? Or maybe it's because I just don't feel like working. I wonder why I'm not striving as I used to be. I guess what will motivate me is some sort of competition or maybe some goal I want to achieve so bad that I will risk anything for it.

I'm motivated by a lot of things, not just people. Sometimes when I read a good book or watch a good film, I come out inspired and want to continue writing the story I've set aside. It's so important to find a mentor who would motivate us. And more importantly is how to keep motivated for a long time. When life gets in the way and job or school occupy our time, we tend to let loose of the grip and forget these motivations. We need to be motivated to stay consistent in our pursuits, to push us beyond our limits. Sometimes a negative comment or insult can also serve as a strong motivation to prove our detractors wrong. Every success story has a motivation that started it all.

Having someone to motivate always makes people perform better at whatever it is they're doing but just because no one's there to push you doesn't mean that you should be performing poorly. You need to be able to stand on your own two feet, you just need to keep a positive attitude with anything that comes your way and face it head on. Try thinking about what's in for you in the long run, it may be hard now but in time you'll reap the benefits of all your'e hard work.
