If you’re leader, encourager or someone who got stuck driving a community event, then you understand the importance of motivating people. Admit it. You’ve had fantasies about giving Bill Pullman’s speech from Independence Day or delivering the rallying battle cry from Braveheart.
Everyone is different. What motivates one person may not work on another. People can be a challenge, but what about the biggest challenge of all? How do you motivate YOU?
Passion – What makes your heart race? What consumes your thoughts and dreams?
Fear – Are you more afraid of NOT pursuing your dream than taking the risk you’ll fail?
Hope – The very act of DOING gives you hope for the future.
If you can relate to these three motivational triggers, then you my friend are living a “purpose driven” life.
