What Is Your Motivation?

“Of course motivation is not permanent. But then, neither is bathing; but it is something you should do on a regular basis.” 
― Zig Ziglar, 

What keeps you motivated to participate in the cannabis industry?  Is it the joy that getting high brings? Is it gardening and cultivation? Is it the new paradigm that we are part of co-creating? We are busy people. You have your to do lists for work, home and personal and I imagine they are pretty long. What keeps you going other than obligation?  Is it love of your job or family? It is a sense of purpose? Maybe it’s the opportunity to use your talents and skills. Does the passion for the cannabis industry motivate you? Or it may be simply the need for the paycheck or sense of duty.

So, what motivates you to do what you need to do? To check off your list?  Sometimes life requires constant motivation. You work hard but the results are not immediate.  You have goals but sometimes those are moving targets as we create and adjust to get it right. Life happens and our momentum and focus gets interrupted.

Think about motivates you with each day, each task. It goes back to discovering what matters to you which I wrote about on September 18th.  What is your why for doing what you do? Look to others when your motivation gets stale. Be motivated by others actions, successes or struggles. Celebrate your wins, learn from your failures both individually and collectively.  Keep the bigger picture in mind while tending to your daily responsibilities.  And if some days you just can’t get into that “rah rah! Go team!” mode, let this be your motivation:
