Everyone knew in a company or an organization that for promotion and salary increment you need outstanding work. Yet only few work hard to achieve this goal. The only thing that holds us back is lake of motivation. Why we need motivation from external sources for things important for our successful and happy life? To understand this, you have to understand yourself.
Food, water, shelter, clothing and air are basic needs of human being. When you are hungry, you search for food by yourself. You do not need anyone to motivate you. Your body only push you for things which are directly related to your survival or passing on your gens to next generation.
Once you have food, your brain wants to conserve this energy for longer time. You were not evolve to waste your energy in perusing intellectual goals. You were evolved for better survival. Laziness is nothing but the energy-saving mode of your body.
After fulfilling your basic needs, you left with ambitions and desires. Desires are self-perpetuating. Whereas achieving your ambitions requires pain, suffering and hard work. Thus, for achieving your ambitions you need external motivation. Because, in this case, your body does not drive you. Instead, you (your intellectual conscious brain) have to push your body to achieve your goals.
You think you are very smart when you speak a lie and and get away with it, however, sometimes your elders, your loved one’s or your boss knew that you are lying but do not correct you because they do not want you to feel embarrass.

Below are some lies we often speak thinking we are very smart but actually we are not!

“Life is like an Ice cream, enjoy it before it melts!”
When there is night in the west, there is a day in the East. Therefore, earth remain bright all the time. Similarly, in our life every situation has bright side and a dull side. We just need to try to see the bright side.
To live a happy life stop making detailed long-term planning. Live in today, care for today and do today’s work today. Future is very unpredictable, so do not plan much about future. You do not know what tomorrow will bring for you. Do not spent today, dreaming about tomorrow.
As we grow older, even in our 40’s, our perception about world and life change. What we thought as important, no longer remain important for us after just twenty years. You will be different you after every years. If you have to enjoy, enjoy today. If you have to work, work today. If you have to live, live today.
“Life is short, make it sweet. Do not put all the flowers for your grave.”
