High Goals

7.5 out of 10
less motivated more motivated

Many people say that a major component in motivation is having high goals you are constantly striving to achieve. You seem to be someone who believes strongly in this. You probably set high goals for yourself to motivate you to action and accomplishment. This is a positive characteristic for personal fulfillment. Just remember that sometimes a little realism helps keep you going. Constantly setting out-of-reach goals can frustrate you to inaction. However, pushing yourself as much as possible will help you achieve what you want in life.

Ever hear the phrase "attitude is everything!"? Well, you seem believe this, at least in theory. You probably believe that taking a go-get-em, positive attitude is the way to motivate yourself to action. You probably have a tendency to look at the bright side of things, even when it might seem that the odds are against you. This is a wonderful characterisitc to have because it allows you to keep going in the face of adversity. It might also draw people to you because if you assume that things will work out, you will create an environment in which good things are more likely to happen.

There are some people that are motivated by taking direct and overt action. You seem to be one of those people. This may mean that you probably feel more comfortable actively pursuing a goal rather than passively waiting for things to happen to you. The advantage to this tactic is that you probably feel in control of things going on in your life and feel more motivated by the idea of being direct and active.

According to your answers, you seem to believe that hard work and diligence will get you what you want in life. And you probably aren't afraid to work for the things you want. This willingness to work hard toward your goals will probably help you achieve them.
