The Greatest is Self-motivation

“People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.” - Zig Ziglar

"Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly." - Stephen R. Covey

“You can motivate by fear. And you can motivate by reward. But both of these methods are only temporary. The only lasting thing is self-motivation.” - Homer Rice

"When you know what you want,and you want it badly enough, you'll find a way to get it ." - Jim Rohn

Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice. Do you agree?

Hi Sam...

Fabulous post!

I believe that the "fire within" is indeed the best motivator.

There are times when other motivators may be required.. (for example fear may be an appropriate motivator for a child who is playing in the street), but the more we can find the spirit, the passion, the creativity inside us, the better!

Thanks for this great thought Sam,

Indeed Sam,

It is good to have motivation from friends and people around us. But the most important and crucial source of motivation should come from ourselves. And if we look at ourselves deep enough, the most appropriate person who knows ourselves the best to know what dosage we need is ... none other than we, ourselves!!
