“By focusing on your ‘why;’ your reason for wanting what it is you want. The vision. The big picture. That keeps me #motivated especially when the going gets tough,”

Simon Sinek explains how you should clearly articulate why you do what you do

Connecting goals to the reason why, is the most powerful motivation as it enables people to visualise the end result.

Everyone is different we find that different activities inspire us and lift our performance. There are many motivators that may work well with your team but that difference of personal motivation, means its not everyone will feel the same.

But when you connect the goals to the WHY everyone is motivated by it.

The most useful thing you can do for your motivation isn’t to look outward for advice. Instead, look inward and get clear on what exactly you’re driving toward. Once you know where you’re going, the motivation to get there comes much more easily. “
