Do you need motivation?

Recently I have seen quite some posts about “Motivation”.

What motivates you to get out of bed? To make your bed?
What motivates to you drive to work? To actually work?
What motivates you to cook? And clean afterwards?

This is something that I seem to differ from many others.
I don’t really need motivation.

Let’s Review.


My parents are early birds and we’dΒ  have breakfast at 8 on weekend morning.
After that, I was expected to help in whatever needed to be done.
Cooking. Cleaning. Doing groceries.
But all credits to my parents, they did make these activities fun by putting on some music, making into a game and reward me afterwards.

I developed a routine and simply sticked to it.


I singed a contract where I promised I would put 40 hours/week into my job.
You can cheat a little bit here and there, but once someone notices it, prepare for confrontation with the manager. Or worse, HR.
I rather lose sleep than having those discussions.Β 

Do what’s good for you or you have fun doing

When I hear people saying that blogging is too much work, I get a bit disappointed.
Most likely, blogging isn’t your job.
Of course, keeping up with reading can be challenging.
But if writing itself takes too much effort, it might be time to change your strategy.
I usually finish posts in approximately 15-20 minutes.
Why? Because I try to stay under 350 words.

Also, if there too many hurdles with blogging, do you actually really like it?


Today is my 4th day of the ” 30 days Squat challenge”.
I will try to do at least 50 squats throughout the day.
I am simply curious if the facts are real πŸ˜‰

At last

I asked Jasper the same this morning.Β “What motivates you?”
He looked at me with his sleepy morning face and sighedΒ “Obligations”.
We burst into laughter.

Do you need daily motivation to do the regular this things?

  1. Blogging has turned into my job – but it doesn’t pay. I’m fine with it. I enjoy the writing – which is very different to what I thought it was before I started. Loved the ‘obligations’ bit. My mind of humor

  2. Ok, the first thing on your list makes sense, but I don’t really like routines…😊
    Maybe If i think of it as obligations it might work! 😁 Will let you know!

  3. Obligations. Cute! Those motivate us all I believe. I like to be motivated but I can still do things if I am not… I just do it in a funk if I have to. Anyways, I do try my best to keep it positive with a jog and other things but sometimes my Hyde beats Dr. Jeckle. 😬

  4. My children are a huge motivation. (Mostly because they’ll yell at me if I don’t get up and take care of them. πŸ˜‰ ) But also I just feel better when I get up and do the things I’m supposed to do. If I have a day where I haven’t done anything I feel terrible.

  5. Haha. Like my alarm clock. He can’t seem to shut up, so I have to get out anyhow.
    I agree with you!
    Only once I made the terrible mistake of leaving a rush to the airport and leaving my house very unclean. After a nice holiday, I was immediately stressed while stepping into my house.
    So I learned my lesson there πŸ˜‰

  6. Haha that’s unfortunately true.
    I like to postpone these things, because otherwise it will just stay there.
    Once doing it, it’s usually not even that bad!

  7. Hahah. I foudn it funny too.

    I think many people would like blogging to be their career.
    I don’t think it’s impossible, maybe not on WP but you have to start somewhere.
    But until then, I remain sticking to my office job.

  8. Hey Hey πŸ™‚ Just started out with the blogging here! Really enjoying it so far even though some people call me crazy for trying to fit something else into my schedule of work, study, social life and now blogging. I was thinking about what motivated me to even start this morning and came across your post so thought I would stop and take a minute to say hello and good job xxx

  9. Hi Sarah! Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging πŸ˜‰
    You don’t have to blog every day, but I would recommend twice a week.
    I will follow your blog and look forward to reading your posts!! πŸ™‚

  10. I really liked it there and you know I feel the same that positive vibe uplifts a person. It is an amazing vibe and is definitely inspiring. My latest post is on positive vibe as well where I have explained how to identify positive vibes from a person and given three quick life tips and the second one will shock you up. I’d be glad to know your profound views. Tap the link for the article:
    Enjoy your day!

  11. Motivation and passion are one in the same. I guess it’s all in how you look at it. My thought is, you can’t have one without the other. If you are passionate about something then you have the motivation. There are going to be days where other things get in the way of your passion, that’s just life, but as long as you have a true passion, the motivation is there. One just has to make the time for their passions and find the “Why” behind your passion. Just my thought…
