I believe we all have a trait inside us that pushes us daily to achieve all we can. In all manners of life, these accomplishments and successes show up in many forms and ultimately mean different
things to everyone. It’s the motivation behind the drive that I’m intrigued by.
Personally, I find myself driven to provide for my kids, giving us opportunities we have never had, all while balancing our time to maintain a loving and thriving household. I often think about
my childhood, the opportunities I had to grow as a young man and how that compares to my kids’ lives today. While many of the same basics exist, there is a notable amount of experiences my kids have already enjoyed and for that reason I continue to be driven.
I envision a day when my kids will speak with me quietly about their lives and growing up in a non-traditional family (divorced). I presume we will share moments of sadness as well as joy for
what their lives have become and the opportunities and moments we have shared. When I think simply about that day, it creates one consistent goal in my mind, to be driven for Gus and Lily.
Recognize your drive and confirm your motivation behind it. Once your aware, I’m certain you are even more powerful.
