* A Look At Motivation And Goal Setting And Achieving Success
When we take a look at motivation and goal setting, what are they exactly? If we think of motivation, and consider that motivation is fuel. Then goal setting is guiding that fuel in a given direction.

So, which is more important in motivation and goal setting? They both go hand in hand. The motivation is needed so you can get off the ground and take action. Without a goal there is no need to be motivated, after all what would you be motivated about?!

* Why!
If your level of motivation dictates whether you will even see your goal, how are you going to get motivated? The answer is your why. Why do you want this goal in the first place? Your level of motivation will be born from your why.

Why do you want that house, why do you want the million dollars, why do you want a certain type of woman? Why? Asking these questions will give you a reason to continue. So many people often will simply leave it at 'I want to get rich', but this has no level of motivation, and ultimately they fail. Symbols are not things that give us long term motivation.

* Getting More Motivated
We now know that motivation is a key ingredient. Yes, motivation and goal setting go together, but there is a difference. Your goal could take a few seconds of your time to think about or it could take an hour, a day, week or even years, but your motivation must be constant.

Getting more motivated requires several points to consider. These are your questions. A good place is to begin with your why. This acts as a litmus test also. Knowing your why, when setting your goals, you will get motivated. However, if you feel that you can't get motivated, then consider whether this is simply wanting things that others want, and not what we want. Everyone wants to get rich, but maybe you don't. Maybe you do want it, and have real reasons. This will give you the motivation to achieve the results.

Results are born out of motivation, and your motivation and goal setting go hand in hand. You must know why you want something, so you can achieve it. Far too many people hope, few try, and even fewer succeed. Many who try never succeed because there thoughts are simply materialistic. No, you don't want to eat, you want to eat because it gives you nutrition to live another day.
