What really motivates you to not lie in bed all day?
For me I have two, ones a little less serious than the other. Firstly what I have always wanted since I was a (very) small child, is a water slide from my bedroom to a swimming pool downstairs. Its a little bit of an infantile motivation. However, I have had it in my mind that its something I want to achieve in life and its a silly goal that keeps me motivated and on track.
The second is my girlfriend. I work to make her happy as in turn it effects me too. When I make her smile it in turn fills me with a slice of joy.
Keeping these little things in mind and reminding myself why and having those goals to reach really can help you stay on track. IM is about keeping focus having when you have a reason behind it, it may help you to focus that little bit more.
I mean I am fortunate to love the work I am doing in IM and, although I am only just starting out, its bringing me closer to the things I truly value in life. I'm starting to ramble a bit so I think I'll stop this post here! But please do give us your thoughts on what motivates you! You never know it might be helpful to put your life goals down in text, instead of just in your head.
