The Motivation Vault

Today’s post is short and sweet (this has been a really busy week for me), and I’d like to get your feedback.  I’ll start by saying: I shouldn’t be doing this.  I have too much work to do, too many side projects, and too many “challenges.”  Nevertheless, I’m not one to pass by an idea that I think I can implement fairly easily.

It’s hard to stay motivated as we try to escape our jobs, start our muses and businesses, and really reach the life we desire.  Wouldn’t it be great to have a place you can go to that is almost guaranteed to motivate you, even if it’s only for a short while?  Here’s the idea. There will be a new feature/page on My4HWW called The Motivation Vault. This page will feature (over time) a massive collection of links to articles, interviews, blog posts, etc. that motivate you.

Here’s what I need from you:

1) Your feedback. Do you like this idea?

2) Your submissions. If I go through with this, I want to know all about what you read online that really motivates you.  I’ll have a lot of my own things to list, but it’ll be a lot better if I get contributions from other people!  If you have ideas now, you can submit them via the Contact page, however I’ll also set up a contact form on the actual Motivation Vault page once that’s set up.

Sound good?  Head to the comments!

  1. I read Tim Ferris page to get motivation.

    Tim Ferriss is an excellent source of motivation (and he was the motivation behind my creation of this blog…).

  2. This is a great idea. I sometimes don’t get so much inspiration from what I read but from the people that surrounds me (I do read a lot though).

    I am looking forward to the Motivation Vault!

  3. Great idea, Eric – would definitely bookmark a site like that. Tynan @ tynan.net and Karol @ rediculouslyextraordinary.com are two of my favourites…

  4. I think this could be a great idea.

    I’ll definitely submit a couple, if I come across any, to help out.

  5. This would be fantastic. It can be much too easy to lose your motivation and become discouraged. A motivation vault would be spectacular.

    I love reading books related to entrepreneurship, online blogs, and websites related to passive income. I’m learning as much as I can now about business and finance, so that I can reap the benefits before I’m too old to live life to the fullest!

    I personally love mixergy.com, and the forum at Info Barrel is where I find my motivation to keep up my freelance online writing.

    Once the motivation vault is up, I will definitely stop by frequently and assist with contributions as I find them.

    Great idea Eric!

    Hey Keith, thanks a lot for the thoughtful feedback. I love mixergy as well, so you can bet that it’ll be on the list. As for Info Barrel, I’ll try to find some good threads on the forum to link too.

  6. I like this idea, Eric, and I’d love an IV Drip direct from the Motivation Vault to my mind! As ironic as it is, building a life and business online, I don’t actually read too much via the web for motivation. So, I don’t necessarily have any suggestions that way, but I would love it as a resource for me. Sometimes there is so much crap out there, I’d love a place I can go for genuine motivation, without the sales pitch. I get my motivation from reading a ton of books, most of which are downloaded onto my Kindle, of which I love! Motivation is such a fickle subject too, because what motivates one, doesn’t always motivate another. By including User Contributions, you make your idea even that much stronger. I love it!

    Completely agree with your comment about how motivation can vary from person to person. It’s true that what may motivate me, you might find ridiculous. Hopefully with a broad enough collection of motivating articles, quotes, etc., there will be something for everyone. Thanks for the feedback, Bill!

  7. Eric,
    Awesome idea! I’m very motivated by Robert Kiyosaki. I have read all of his books and don’t really learn much from the new ones that come out (the messages are typically the same as the older books). However, the motivation is what keeps me reading!
    Best,
    Ian

    Thanks for the suggestion, Ian! I’ll definitely take that into consideration when I’m putting together the “vault.”

  8. One of the best ways to accomplish your goals in life is to motivate yourself to take action. Useful habits can increase your effectiveness immensely. One of the best traits to develop is the Do It Now habit. This can get you started on a task even when you don’t feel like working.

    You probably should start with small, everyday tasks. After you have developed this habit using easy tasks, you can gradually increase the difficulty of these tasks. But remember, after giving the Do It Now command, you must always carry through with immediate action.
