Quote of the Day
Desire is the key to motivation, but it's determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek.
Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way.
The bird is powered by its own life and by its motivation.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Motivation will almost always beat mere talent.
Norman Ralph Augustine

Motivation is the art of getting people to do what you want them to do because they want to do it.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
My motivation is tomorrow, just one day at a time, right?
I'll always use the negativity as more motivation to work even harder and become even stronger.
I think a lot of times it's not money that's the primary motivation factor; it's the passion for your job and the professional and personal satisfaction that you get out of doing what you do that motivates you.
Money is not a motivating factor. Money doesn't thrill me or make me play better because there are benefits to being wealthy. I'm just happy with a ball at my feet. My motivation comes from playing the game I love. If I wasn't paid to be a professional footballer I would willingly play for nothing.
If people take anything from my music, it should be motivation to know that anything is possible as long as you keep working at it and don't back down.
Desire is the key to motivation, but it's the determination and commitment to unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek.
I think it all comes down to motivation. If you really want to do something, you will work hard for it.

Edward de Bono
There's always the motivation of wanting to win. Everybody has that. But a champion needs, in his attitude, a motivation above and beyond winning.

Margaret J. Wheatley
One of the things that I did before I ran for president is I was a professional speaker. Not a motivational speaker - an inspirational speaker. Motivation comes from within. You have to be inspired. That's what I do. I inspire people, I inspire the public, I inspire my staff. I inspired the organizations I took over to want to succeed.
I think sometimes I guess you see records, say you want to get there and use that as motivation. In a way, it's kind of cool if there is a possibility to rewrite history and be up there with the greats of Olympic history.
An employee's motivation is a direct result of the sum of interactions with his or her manager.
Once something is a passion, the motivation is there.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Inspiration comes from so many sources. Music, other fiction, the non-fiction I read, TV shows, films, news reports, people I know, stories I hear, misheard words or lyrics, dreams... Motivation? The memory of the rush I get from a really good writing session - even on a bad day, I know I'll find that again if I keep going.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
