The Best Motivation To Succeed

SuccessWho motivates you to succeed in life?

For some people, it’s their enemies. I saw this sticker on a bus in Lagos, “may my enemies live long to see what I will become in future” and it got me thinking about reasons why  a lot of people want to succeed. Does  the reason for success matter ?

I believe it does.

Yes your enemies or the people who let you down or hate/despise you or did not believe in you may have caused you a lot of hurt and pain in the past and maybe they still do presently but making them, your motivation to succeed in life puts them on a higher pedestal than they should be. Those types of people don’t matter and should be treated as such.

Also it may lead you down a path that will not bring fulfillment in the end. It may push you to take decisions and shortcuts you will regret and which will hurt the people you love and who love you back. You may take jobs, make decisions, marry people, buy stuff, go places, do things in pursuit of your goal, unaware that those choices will hurt you and your loved ones in the future because you are so consumed with “showing them”.

It’s human to want to show them (people who hate you) by succeeding but think about it. Will your success change them or their opinion of you? They may become subdued by your success but that doesn’t mean they won’t try to bring you down any chance they get, because you have given them more reasons to dislike you.

They said to your face “you won’t amount to anything”. That’s a very painful statement but don’t make that the reason for you to succeed

Instead succeed because it pleases God. Succeed for the people who love you and will always be there for you. Succeed to make an impact on your environment. In fact these reasons should drive your every action and decision. These reasons are worthwhile and will bring you fulfillment.

Have an amazing week.
