Motive

What’s the reason behind what I do?  Interestingly, we don’t question our motives when things are going well.  When our projects or endeavors have momentum, we rarely question why we’re doing them.  It’s usually when we feel like things are going too fast for us to handle or when we run out of steam before reaching our goals that we wonder what possessed us to think we could do it.  We wonder why we ever took it on in the first place.

I believe that this is a universal experience.  We’ve all questioned our motives.  I think these moments are necessary reassessments.  Instead of pushing through blindly, it’s a moment to regroup, refocus, rearrange, and re-motivate.

If we were to question those who accomplished great things, I’m sure they’d all have stories of struggles, of times when they could have turned back and walked away.  Only, they didn’t.  They had to reassess, but in that they found new reasons to keep fighting for their goals and new ways to reach them.

Am I questioning my motives on something right now?  Have I walked away?  Have I found reasons and ways to attain my goals?  If it’s something worth fighting for, take the time to reassess.  Victory belongs to those who fight until the end.

Be a light to your world today!
