We meet hundreds of people who are always talking, preaching and
philosophizing endlessly on everything under the sun but never act on
anything themselves. The best of us fall prey to sermonizing without
ourselves acting on them.
In this scenario, when you see men of action, you wonder at their
spirit of action and adventure. And believe me they are destined to
achieve big in life.
I would like to introduce one such person I never met but got to know
through this wonderful technology that is the internet.

lot about Sanjeev Sharma and wish him the best. I am happy to
feature one of his articles this fortnight on Keys to Motivation.

It cannot bring you the success and happiness you desire.
It is the keys to
motivation that move you from where you are now, to where you want to be.

time trying to improve you life.
But all hope is not lost! When you know the keys, you are ahead of the
game. No longer will you wait for motivation to come to you, you'll go out there
and get it!
This is the most
misunderstood step in the entire process. When I work with individuals and
businesses to increase their motivation, the source of the problem usually comes
they don't really want what they are working towards.
It may sound
obvious that you have to want something in order to achieve it, but it is the
degree to which you desire that differentiates those who get what they want and
those who are left wondering why.
The first step is
to honestly ask yourself how much you actually want to reach your target.
In some cases, you may realize that the objective you thought you wanted was
actually far from the real target.
The next step in the
equation is belief.
Do you believe in yourself and your abilities? Do you believe
that you can do it?

must stop at this point for a personal Q and A. You must list why you don't

Each problem becomes an opportunity, and each minute that you are awake is
fertile ground for new ideas, thoughts, and angles to approach the challenge.
This is where you get
the thoughts out of your mind and turn them into a working plan of action.
A goal is a concrete and manageable blueprint for success.
If you do not start with a specific goal in mind, you will be starting with a
great disadvantage. Simply stating and committing your goal to paper brings
you one important step closer to achievement.
There is no magic in a goal.
It is merely a focused view of where you want to head. It adds
a bold red line on the map, and points you to the destination.
But a goal is like everything else that is worthwhile in life; it only works
if you do.

No road is completely smooth and free of obstacles. The way to make this work
for you is
to bring a positive and winning attitude with you.
With the right attitude, you can be handed a failure, see it for what it is, a
learning experience, and move on.
I have seen the greatest of intentions fall flat because of a negative
attitude. I have also seen the greatest of accomplishments because of a
positive attitude. The choice is yours.
The power of a
positive attitude has been demonstrated again and again in our world. Choosing

Hard work is the last and most important element of the process. If I buy a
