What’s your motivation? Motivation gives us the power to move and work. You can make powerful changes in the way you do things by changing your motivation.
In Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. There are eight levels of needs – they are: physical, security, belonging, esteem, learning, aesthetic, self-actualization, and transcendence. Motivation often comes from trying to meet our needs. The most powerful need is a spiritual need. A desire for meaning and purpose. The way to change your motivation is to raise the level of motivation. If your motivation is to work and earn money, you advance your level of motivation by helping and serving others. Jesus reminded his apostles that he came to “serve not be served and give his life as ransom for many.”
Serving does not mean that you neglect your well being. It means that the purpose of your life grows and gains deeper meaning and purpose and happiness is the result.
