Each of us has personal motivation, it is that inward power that pushes us to become a better person, work harder, and enjoy life. Motivation doesn't always happen on a daily basis, it takes the combination of desire and ambition to make it truly work. Highly motivated people often set personal goals for themselves that they must achieve in order to have a feeling of self worth. Many people have a desire to do something, but they lack the imitative to do it. They are held back by fear, doubt, and anxiety. Having motivation means you have a willingness to take action and do something, despite the consequences.
