Book Synopsis (provided by the author)

Do you usually feel demotivated to pursue your dreams? Do you lack the drive to push through difficult situations? Are you ready to learn ways and tips to quickly achieve your goals? Or will you like to live an inspiring life worth emulating? Then, this is the right book for you.


You don’t have to seek anybody’s permission before you can achieve greatness. This is the reason why it is important to be motivated in life. Motivation is what pushes and aligns you towards your goal.

For you to achieve your goals, you need motivation to keep gravitating towards them, as goals are like the stepping stones to your dreams.

We are all not born motivated. Of course, some people lack it in considerable portion because they believe that “the time is not right” or that “they will get to it one day” or that because “they can’t do that.” Motivation is capable of turning a good idea into a booming business. It is motivation that turns a good thought into action, as it has the capacity to greatly impact the world around you.  

You won’t achieve or get anything done if you are not motivated. If you are not motivated, it means you don’t have any purpose to strive for, or a goal post to aim for.

Being motivated is an important life skill. Motivation can’t be downplayed because each and every one of us has a purpose to fulfill on this earth, and you have to be motivated to steward towards that purpose because it is that motivation that makes your dream become a reality. You are achieving your goals, not just for yourself, but also for the sake of others.

Motivation has inspired people to produce products, and services we never imagined would be useful. You may not have an iPhone, Macbook Air, or iPad if Steve Jobs wasn’t motivated. If a designer wasn’t motivated to transform his or her creativity into reality, you may not be wearing those clothes or using that designer bag.

With motivation, the sky will only be your starting point, which can have both direct and indirect impacts on the community you live in, your relationships, and your level of confidence. There are many reasons why motivation is important in life, and they will be discussed subsequently:

Motivation helps to clarify your goal. You will, of course, possess the desire to transform your life, when you are motivated. Having the desire to change will motivate you towards your goal. Your goal is clarified, for you to know what you are pushing towards.

It is also worthy of note that motivation helps to prioritize once you can figure out what your goal is. For instance, you compulsorily have to set aside some time every week if your goal is to write a book. Motivation demands your commitment, make you focused till your goal is accomplished.

Also, when you have any setback, you will be able to bounce back from it if you are motivated. A dream route to success is merely a fantasy. There is nothing as such because every success has its own setback. Setbacks discourage you from pursuing your goal, but it is the motivation that will enable you to push through it.

Further, another importance of motivation is its lesson on perseverance. Thomas Edison, who invented the light bulb noted that he never failed, but only learned 10,000 ways not to do it. He was also quoted saying, “Our biggest weakness lies in giving up.” Imagine if he had given up in the quest of inventing the bulb, his name would probably not be remembered today.

Moreso, motivation is what kicks fear in the face when you are about to take an action. Motivation will tell you that, you are still going to do it anyway, no matter what you are feeling. When you are motivated, you will be able to see beyond your fears, as you will be able to see the bigger picture.

In addition, if you are motivated, you will be able to attract your tribe, such that you would want to sync your energy and draw from your expertise. The vibe when a group of motivated people meets themselves is alluring. The energy helps to increase the motivation to succeed. A good leader understands that bringing together a group of motivated people on a team will deliver the results that are being aimed at.

Lastly, motivation is contagious. It can inspire others to make things happen in their life. You will instantly feel the aura and energy to be motivated if you have hung, or meet with motivated people because their can-do, and positivity can lift your spirit. This is why is it advisable to seek out motivated people.
