Motivated by Love
What motivates you? You wake up in the morning and you decide to make a positive change in your life. Maybe you decide you want to stop a bad habit that has been controlling you. Maybe you have decided to start your own home based business. Maybe you want to spend more time with your children or work on your marriage. Or, maybe you have decided to wash all of your windows inside and out.
What is it that motivates you to do something positive and productive in your life?
Our attitude plays a big role in many of our positive life changes that we make throughout our lifetime. Unfortunately, our attitude can also bring about many negative results also. I would venture to say that when an individual wants to do something positive and productive with their life, no matter what it is, they are being motivated by love in some way shape or form.
A positive and joyful attitude is love, and that love can change an entire life in a blink of an eye. In a blink of an eye, a joyful and positive attitude can change a bad attitude of everyone in a room. So wouldn’t it be great to be motivated by love all the time and influence those around you? Is that even possible?
Our thoughts play a big role in how motivated we are. For instance, if I don’t like my job and I always tell myself how I can’t stand going to work everyday I will feel bitter and hateful about my job because I told myself so. I will not be motivated by love but by my negative attitude instead. Is there a way, we can stop allowing bad thoughts to enter into our mind?
Find out what might be causing your negative outlook on life and fix it. What is it that is stopping you from feeling good about yourself and life? Do you need to forgive someone; do you need to stop a certain sin or addiction that is controlling your life? Don’t let what others think of you be your motivation because in the end, it will bring you down.
When you find yourself motivated by love, you will have the influence to love others unconditionally. Love conquers all, and wins out in the end. You are in control of your thoughts. Knowing this, then, you will know that you’re also in control of your attitude. If you are in control of your attitude, then you are in control of your life! Don’t let a bad attitude bring you down in life.
If you want to be motivated by love then allow your loving persona to come out! You have the power to let love motivate your daily activities so you can be more productive with your skills and abilities. I encourage you to not allow your attitude to keep you tied down, burying your talents and abilities. That is not what God wants from His children.
Your attitude can be your best asset or your worse enemy. Not loving self is the biggest barrier to becoming motivated by love. To love who we are so we do not stumble in our bad attitude is to give what we hate about ourselves over to God and let Him deal with it. Once we do that we won’t have any barrier standing in the way of allowing love to motivate our actions. We become love.
It is your choice.
Let love be your motivator and you will see how your negative attitude can turn into a joyful and loving attitude in a blink of an eye. Love is within you and you have the power within you to bring out that love in everything you do, whether it is working on your marriage, or washing all of your windows inside and out. Let love be your motivator
Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth,
1 John 3:18.
