Inspiration, Desperation and Perspiration are the 3 of the biggest drivers we have that move us towards successfully achieving what we want to do.
With inspiration and desperation we get the carrot and stick of external motivation, where we go towards something good or away from something bad, where as perspiration is the product of hard work, which is intrinsically composed of the effort we are willing to put in to get the results we want.
Inspiration is more than just the small reward of a carrot at the end of a long stick, because with inspiration you get a purpose that continues to move you forward, in short you become focused and driven.
Desperation makes you feel uncomfortable, it gives you the leverage you need to get you moving, it makes you push like you have never pushed before in order to get the momentum needed to make the changes you need to make to move away from where you are now.
Perspiration is the sweat that it takes to work towards your goal, being inspired and desperate will get you going but in the real world it’s never going to be easy, and that means you need to put in the hours, to work every day and to get back up and keep moving forward when you never thought you could.
The questions you need to ask yourself are;
What inspires you?
Are you desperate enough to make the changes you need to make? and
Are you are willing to put in the work to get what you want?
