According to the Cambridge English Dictionary, motivation is the “enthusiasm for doing something”. Motivation is necessary for a work to be done. It used to be considered not important earlier but now, its essentiality has been accepted. From schools to offices, keeping people motivated has become vital. What is the importance of motivation? How come something is so important in the daily lives?
If people are willing to work, then only they can give maximum and fruitful produce. But for that, the space between ability and willingness has to be reduced. The more the reduction, the better will be the work done. Motivation not only increases the productivity but also increases the overall efficiency of an individual. It helps in the achievement of goals in a relatively less time. Motivation contributes to the development of the individual.
It is the lack of motivation that drives people to give up, either on the current work or on life itself. But I believe motivation is a thing that cannot be bought or brought. It comes from within. Others can motivate you only for a short period of time. But the motivation that comes from within, is something that lasts.
