When you are eager to achieve something but not determined enough, then the only thing you lack is motivation. Motivation means a force that is driving us to engage in goal-directed behavior. It is the only factor that determines if we initiate, continue or terminate working in a particular direction. We need motivation in every activity we do in a day and in all aspects of life. A student needs it to get up every morning, go to school and then do homework. An adult needs it to go to the office every day and accomplish targets. The only reason we don’t want to work on our dreams, targets, or goals is that we are not motivated enough.
