Find your Motivation to Work Harder

Hard work, success and status go together.  When you work for something, you appreciate the results a whole lot more.  The results can be a house, a car, a boat, a holiday or a luxury item such as a Rolex watch.  Rolex watches are the ultimate in status symbols, but they are also the ultimate in style.  They signify a person, whether a man or a women, who has worked hard for what they have achieved, and deserve the ultimate success.

So what drives us to work harder and to reach success? Well, we are a competitive society.  We want to own the nice house and the lovely car and to be able to afford good holidays.  The idea of a luxury lifestyle motivates people to work harder.  We all want more money in the bank and we all want to be able to invest our money and have a safe and secure future too. 

Sometimes it can be hard to find the motivation; it comes easier for some than it does for others.  Your motivation may be a luxurious Rolex watch.  If it is, then work hard towards buying the watch.  Work hard and stay motivated, knowing that at the end of the day, the watch will be on your wrist.  Or perhaps on your partner’s wrist, if you want to spoil him or her. A Rolex does make a great present!

To help you to find motivation to work harder, it is a good idea to have goals.  Your goal is your own goal and you don’t have to tell anybody else what it is.  You might want to double your salary in five years time, become the CEO of a company, or perhaps, walk quietly and stylishly down the road wearing your hard and well-earned Rolex watch.  Your goal could be to write a book and see your book displayed in the local bookstore.  It could be to be able to afford that magnificent pair of shoes you always find irresistible.  Your goals don’t have to compare to anybody else’s goals -they are yours.  Writing down your goals will help you to find that little bit of extra ‘oomph’ that you may need to become a success and afford the things that you want and desire.

Success comes in many forms and even if we say we don’t want it, we do. Everybody does. We want to achieve and we want recognition for our achievements.  Being able to afford a first home is a real achievement.  Buying a first car is a real achievement.  Sending your child to a prestigious university is a real achievement.  And, going back to status, owning a Rolex watch, is a real achievement.  A Rolex watch signifies somebody who has worked hard, has status, has success and has his or her own special luxury style.

Perhaps you have achieved success already.  But if you are struggling to stay motivated, so that you can have that luxury lifestyle you so desire, take a few notes.

Set goals.
Write your goals down.
Start small and work your way up.
Reward yourself as you start achieving your goals.
Schedule a weekly check-in with yourself to make sure you are staying on track.
Cross things off your list as you achieve them.
Reward yourself again.
Move the goalposts.
Challenge yourself.
Stop being scared.
Take a few risks.
Start saying YES.


If you are finding it hard to stay motivated, take a break.  Work hard and then work-out hard.  Change your pace a little.  Go for a walk.  Read a book.  And then get back to the task at hand.  Don’t forget to write down your goals and as you achieve them, cross them off your list.  There is nothing more satisfying than crossing something off a list.  And stop being scared.  You can only get something in life if you go after it.  Take a chance, take a few risks and always shake things up.  It’s how you stay motivated and achieve success.

Your goal is your own.  If you want a boat, write that down and go after it.  If you want a Rolex watch, let that be your motivation.  Start doing the research so that you stay motivated to achieve your goals and success.  Take notes of the things you want, make notes about where you can get them and how much they are.  Keep reminding yourself of your goal and don’t be scared to go after it.  We all deserve success when we work hard.  And we all deserve reward.
