How many times have you started a weight loss program, started a bodybuilding or aerobics program, or intended to learn a new foreign language? Or did you give up doing these after a very short time?
Doing something different due to lack of motivation ; For example, how many times did you intend to study a particular topic or start a particular project, but it didn’t work? Sometimes, you might have just started a new project and then didn’t continue because you lost the excitement or lacked motivation? In fact, this is a situation we often encounter.

What is motivation and why do you need it?

Motivation is a driving force. You need a drive to achieve anything, otherwise you will not achieve anything. A wish is not strong enough to move you and is a weak desire. Only a strong desire to achieve goals and objectives can move you forward.
To get motivation, you need to know exactly what you want. Your goal should be clear and sharp, and you should understand and be aware of the payoffs. Thinking often about your goals and being convinced that they can be achieved will increase your motivation and strengthen your desire to achieve them.
Thinking often and being convinced of the importance of what you want to accomplish will increase your motivation, strengthen your desire, and be willing to do whatever it takes to achieve your goal.
Motivation is easier for short-term goals. When it comes to long-term goals, it is not always possible to maintain motivation for a long time. That’s why it’s wise to start with small goals, and once you get motivated and gain experience, you can move on to bigger goals.
If you want to achieve a certain object or achieve a certain goal, but do not feel motivated enough to act, it means that the desired thing or goal is not important enough. You must have a strong desire to take action and do something towards your goal.
Motivation has become a popular term nowadays. Now there are motivational trainers and motivational books and articles have been written by those who speak and work in this field.
Motivation has a lot to do with emotions and imagination; which means that if you want to increase your motivation, you need to work on your emotions and imagination.
