Top Ten Sources of Motivation

The Top Ten Sources of Motivation

1 Certain music or songs

Certain music and songs motivate me the most - usually metal songs because they are very energetic. - Metal_Treasure

It's My life by Bon Jovi is such a motivational song: - Britgirl


2 Seeing the success of others

I really enjoy seeing others win. The look of pure euphoria on their faces when they succeed in something is so exciting. It makes you think "I could have that same feeling..." - Britgirl

YES! - dipchappy

3 Failure

Eh. Sometimes. Works better if it’s in the past and you’re trying to work yourself up instead of all the time.

This really only works if you're the stubborn type. I HATE failing. I can not and will not let a little thing like threading a piece of cotton through the tiny hole beat me - no matter how long it takes. Gah! Just the thought of letting it get the better of me make me itch...! - Britgirl

If I fail in my most hated subject in school.I don't mind.But it motivates me a little bit. - zxm

4 Being told you can't do something

Oh no...?! Well flippin' well watch me! - Britgirl

Yes,I hate to listen someone telling me you can't do this.
It's a great source of motivation - zxm

5 Being complimented

It doesn't happen to me very often but when it does it just makes me feel better about myself, ergo making me want to do more things. - Britgirl

6 Feeling low

This may sound ridiculous but it's a great time not to let your low mood get the better if you. Tell yourself to stop crying, stand up and do something, anything. Believe me if you can overcome a low mood, you'll be surprised at what else you can do. - Britgirl

7 Getting out of bed early

Knowing you have the whole day to do whatever you want and knowing you haven't wasted it by staying in bed until half the day has already gone. - Britgirl

8 Your own success

Tell it to Jimmy Carter.

If you win once you can and will surely win again. - Britgirl

If I had more of this then maybe I'd be twice as motivated to keep doing it.

this should be the ticket for em but I need to find something to keep me motivated - Curti2594

9 Bullies

The saying goes"what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" oh how true. I'm still here... - Britgirl

10 Motivational quotes

Quotes such as "Defeat only tastes bitter if you swallow it" and so many others just make you feel much better about things. - Britgirl
