While success always comes with hard work, perseverance and determination, it requires continuous motivation and kick to keep one on the track. However, motivation and inspiration are not quite easy to achieve, one must believe in oneself before giving anything or anyone the opportunity to reciprocate the requisite.What gives you the kick to get out of bed? What compels you to compete in a stiff competition? What commits you to hours of rigorous studying and working late shifts? What drives you to work out?While some may consider it genetic or heredity, other are of the belief that it is sheer luck. Not everyone is destined to receive the motivation, let alone a kick, to pursue something extra-usual.
Let us look at some key driving factors that make success happen, literally!
What others think of you is the result of your attitude, the way you perceive things and the nature of your objectives and how you go about them.This inside motivation is neither a gift nor any luck. There is a thing called as ‘ATTITUDE’. This is what drives you to kick you out of bed, to compel you to pursue your dream, to drive you nuts when you are late for your work or school.Your path to Success is a combination of your attitude, you’re learning from others – winners and undertakers.
Your attitude decides your fate and the way you tackle difficult situationsYour attitude toward life, toward things and daily chores makes a crucial basis. Life isn’t always rewarding, but it’s still worth living. Your optimism and sense of determination will prevail in distress and hard times.
Next is INSPIRATION. It not only drives an individual but also compels one to think out of the box. You will understand better about your strategies and plans after you are sufficiently inspired. For some, it forms the mind and soul of success. Find out what inspires you first. It could be people, places, circumstances and other aspects.Success stories of others often inspire people for achieving something different. However, people should focus more on the failure stories so as to assess their moves and improve on the areas that they feel require attention.

You cannot move forward unless you have the sense of absorbing these emotions. Besides, there are other factors that are critical to inspire you for your success.
3. Your Family/Acquaintances
We are a part of a tree – A family. While young ones tend to motivate us to set an example for them, elders slice in the experience and the wisdom for what it requires to drive you on the path of success. Family plays an essential part, especially in moments of despair and grief. Surrounding environment tends to have a key role in the mindset of an individual.
The acquaintances you meet with also manage to cast a significant influence. Ask yourself these questions – Who are you meeting with? Are they inspiring you, driving you or just letting you down? Are they compelling enough for you? Whatever your fraternity, sorority or environment is, it is essential to keep a positive mindset.
Apart from the above mentioned, your experience tends to dominate as one of the most important factors determining the pursuit of achieving your goals. The way your react to and learn from an experience proves what you really are. If you are an optimist, you will take the good part of a bad experience. A pessimist takes the bad out of the best lessons learnt. Whatever your situation is, it is never late to get inspired and motivated. These factors play a major role in the long-run and are compelling enough for you to achieve what you desire.
