In a word, it is our driving force. Sometimes we feel highly motivated and can finish a job or work successfully. But in maximum time we do not feel any motivation, therefore are not willing to do any work.


Most importantly, demotivation is a big problem for the rank and file. If we cannot motivate ourselves, we cannot do anything and therefore we will fail in life and consequently, we will be more and more demotivated.

Our path of the journey in our life, is not full of roses, instead, full of thrones. Therefore, we need the motivation to face troubles, problems, challenges and failures in every step.

So we get demotivated very easily and give up temporarily.


Motivation: What It Is and How It Works

In a word, scientists explain it as our over-all enthusiasm and readiness to do something and some psychological forces compel us to take action.

 Definition of Motivation:

Indeed, motivation is some internal as well as external reasons that inspire our desire and energy to persist interestedly and committedly to give the effort to attain a goal or complete a job. Moreover, it may be both our conscious and subconscious mind that leads us towards a desire or target or expectation.

Importance of Motivation

To tell the truth, it is needed to do anything and everything.

Some of them are: –


In all honesty, Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, is one of the greatest motivators of the world. In short, he followed the success as a journey from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm and in this journey, strong motivation is the most vital factor.

If we can read his biography, we must get it. From his tender age, he faces a lot of problems and setbacks and various losses. But he was always so highly motivated that he went on and finally became President of America at the age of 52 and it was the first success in his life.



Most importantly, Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam was a famous Scientist and 11th president of India. Moreover, he got fame as a “Missile Man of India”. He won several prestigious awards along with Bharat Ratna in 1997.

His father was a fisherman. As they were very poor and could not get the necessary food, so he had to help his father. Afterwards, he had to sell newspapers inroads. He had faced poverty very closely.

If we read his story of the fight, we will generate it within us. He believed “FAILURE will never overtake me if my definition to SUCCEED is strong enough”.

Read his books and motivational quotes.

It comes from the word ’motive’ which means desires or needs or wants within the individuals. Most importantly, the stimulants for managements or general worker may be

  • The glory of accomplishing success.
  • Longing for some extra money.
  • Recognition
  • Either Promotion in job or job-satisfaction
  • Team performance
  • Above all individual happiness along with a happy working environment etc.

However, the most vital role of management nowadays is to develop motivation amongst the employees to perform to their level best.

Therefore, the importance of leadership qualities or the leaders is highly demanding to the management.

Most importantly, we can say that materialistic incentives can do a great job as a motivator.


1)Elephant and Rope (Belief):

If we notice elephants in Zoos or somewhere else, we will be astonished that the elephants are being kept not in cages. Rather they are held by a small chain or thin rope in one of his back leg. Moreover, the rope or the chain is tied up with a very small piece of wood and sometimes it is not at all tied up

If the elephant wants he can easily escape from there. But they never do so. They only put one of the front legs up and put it down.

Actually, the reason is when the elephants were very early of their age they were tied up with much strong rope or chain in such a manner that they tried very hard, but they could not tear apart the bindings.

Furthermore, a bell was hanging from his neck. Whenever he tried to forward his front leg, the bell rings.

These happen for prolonged days and months. In the meantime, the elephant grew up and he started believing that he will not be able to break open this obstacle. He then gives up.

As he lifts his front leg, the bell rings and he feels the rope on his back leg, so he took his front leg back again. Instead, if he anyhow lands his front leg in front, he can easily escape and enjoy his normal life.

The only reason is self believe that keeps the elephant from breaking free and escape.

Moral of this story:

Always believe that if we continuously keep on trying, one day all the obstacles will go away and we will get the success. We should get our motivation from this story and do it again and again until we get success. 

Therefore, never give up and lose hope or believe

2) A Group of Frogs (Encouragement)

A Group of Frogs (Encouragement)

While a group of frogs was playing in the woods, all of a sudden two frogs fell down in a pit.

As the other frogs saw that the pit was very deep, so it was impossible to come out of it and they were saying this to the two frogs.

However, the two frogs decided they will try their level best to come out of the pit. Otherwise, they have to die. Therefore, they ignored the shouting of other frogs.

So, they started to jump out of the pit. But they failed every time.

Notwithstanding their effort, the frogs from outside the pit were continuously shouting them to give up, instead of encouraging them.

Sooner or later, a frog gave up the fight and died immediately.

But, the other frog went on jumping harder and harder with much more dedication and determination and finally came out of the pit.

Actually, the frog was deaf and therefore he thought that his mates are shouting and encouraging him all the time.


So, be deaf like that frog and never give up, as if you hear the public around you they will always say something negative to you.


Motivational Quotes:

First, we definitely create a notebook and then write down motivation quotes of famous people and study them regularly.

Secondly, we may create a calendar of motivational quotes and hang them from the wall.

Thirdly, we may create small dice or paperweight with these quotes and put them on the table.


1)One of the world-famous quotes is “The Pessimist Sees Difficulty In Every Opportunity. The Optimist Sees Opportunity In Every Difficulty.” – Winston Churchill.

Most importantly, when we talk about motivation quotes for success words of wisdom from Winston Churchill will always be on the list.

2)  “Whether You Think You Can Or Think You Can’t, You’re Right.” –Henry Ford.

3)  “Look at the sky. We are not alone. The whole universe is friendly to us and conspires only to give the best to those who dream and work.”- A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

4) “ If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to help them build theirs.”-Dhirubhai Ambani

5) “Think big, think fast, think ahead. Ideas are no one’s monopoly.”-Dhirubhai Ambani


At last, we must remember that our motivation will help to complete the journey of life. There are a lot of avenues. If we go some distance and come back and take a new path and repeat it throughout, we will end with a big zero. Otherwise, we will work to fulfil other goals or targets.


Therefore, we need a high level of motivation to dream big and put all your energy and efforts to fulfil your dream.

Be Positive and motivated and lead a happy and peaceful life.
