What motivates you to wake up to a new day and do it all over again?

Motivation is a theoretical construct used to explain behavior. It represents the reasons for people’s actions, desires, and needs. One’s direct behavior, or what causes a person to want to repeat a behavior and vice versa.

A motive is the reason behind what a person does and why they do what they do.

People are motivated by various things.

Some are motivated by money, some are motivated by attention, some are motivated by social media, some are motivated by praise, some are motivated by God’s Word and the list goes on.

Is it your family that motivates you to go hard in the paint?

There is a motive behind you getting up each day to find or fulfill your purpose for that day.

There is enough in each of us to make good choices even in terrible situations.

The word of God tells us to not let our good be evil spoken of(Romans14:16).

Use your motivation to motivate someone else who may be headed for destruction.

Motivate them to turn their life around. Motivate them to help others. Motivate them to be business starters, motivate them to get everything God has for them!
