noun

1.

the act or an instance of motivating,  or providing with areason to act in a certain way: I don’t understand what hermotivation was for quitting her job. Synonyms: motive,inspiration, inducement, cause, impetus.

3.

something that motivates;  inducement; incentive: Clearly,the company’s long-term motivation is profit.

In psychology, motivation refers to the initiation, direction, intensity, and persistence of behavior. Motivation is a temporal and dynamic state that should not be confused with personality or emotion. It involves having the desire and willingness to do something. A motivated person can be reaching for a long-term goal such as becoming a professional writer or a more short-term goal like learning how to spell a particular word. Personality invariably refers to more or less permanent characteristics of an individual’s state of being (such as shy, extrovert, conscientious). As opposed to motivation, emotion refers to temporal states that do not immediately link to behavior (such as anger, grief, or happiness).

Motivation can be categorized according to whether it is a basic, instinctive drive, unlearned and common to all people and also animals, or a learned motivation that can be unique. The former type of motivation involves satisfying the needs of the physical body, and include hunger, thirst, shelter or safety, sexual activity, and so forth. The latter type includes achievement of goals, whether they be in terms of gaining knowledge, power, self-development, or a loving relationship. This latter type can be seen as satisfying the desires of the mind and spirit. Motivation is complex since human nature is complex. Yet, to understand what motivates people to act in certain ways enables people to live and work peaceably with one another.

A Better Way!

Can’t we realize there is always a better way to live in the moments we have…

If we grab a hold of the life we want it can be reality just takes a little time..

positivity in this life will induce change for the better… Just let go of what you can’t control and accept the things you can…

What do you believe, do you believe in your power to change your life by making better decisions?  That each step forward will bring you to a more joyful life…

Just know you have the power to take a hold of the reins and guide you life down the right path

Being BiPolar sux!!!  Many things you think are rational are so not rational but I’m working on getting better….  The best thing in life is the opportunity to change for the better even though it hurts like hell sometimes.

LET GO!

In inspiration, joy, love, memories, motivation, ocean, photography, quotes, rivalry, thoughts on March 3, 2011 at 6:47 am

We all have the opportunity to look past the things we think we want and start to enjoy the things we truly need!

We are not an accumulation of things but of moments we share with others, strangers or friend.  Are you afraid to be who you are because of what others may think or because you don’t even know who you are or what your capable of?

It only takes a moment to realize your true potential, and to see that you are truly powerful.  What are you waiting for?  Nobody can do it for you, face your fears and you will finally see why you are here and what you can accomplish! As NIKE so pleasantly stated not so many years ago “JUST DO IT”

We can change TODAY!

Smile for you can change today, enjoy the opportunity to share it with the world around you!

Shining…

In baseball, basketball, boats, cape cod, memories, motivation, ocean, photography, quotes, thoughts on March 1, 2011 at 2:25 pm

We all have moments in life where we truly shine outside ourselves…  When we let down our guard and truly be who we are meant to be.  Our lives are best lived when we are able to see that we just need to get out of our own way and let the goodness shine through.  I am working on it are you?

 

We as the people of this great nation and the world all have an opportunity on a daily basis to over come that which we could not control and start taking control of what we can.  Ourselves, it is our responsibility to shine like the stars the sun and the moon inside.  It only takes moving forward one better decision at a time to realize our true potential in this short life…

No person knows the answer for your life but you, it is time to rise and shine and give the glory to GOD for he trusts in you.  He believes you can overcome the past and make a solid today!

rocky speaks the truth….

In motivation, quotes, rivalry, thoughts on February 22, 2011 at 5:55 am

Well, we get knocked down, beat up and burned along the way but to understand the truth about yourself is what  leads you forward today… Understand the past and be open to a brighter future it is all up to you and we are counting on you!

We look at public figures, athletes and movie stars to be our role models when really and truly they are just people trying to get through the days just like us.  The realization that we are all in this together should help us understand that no amount of money we sell out to can give us hope… and hope springs eternal!

No Matter what you put in my way I will not give up today!
