Motivation is a way of life. You need it to build your habits and take actions. Any day-to-day activity is undoubtedly bound to get monotonous if continued for a long time. To prevent yourself from being in a dull mood and feeling lazy, it is very important to undertake activities that keep you motivated. Otherwise, you may be wasting a lot of energy and time without any productive results.

Motivation increases the efforts that you would put into your job. With the increase in efforts, your productivity will also increase in manifold ways as you would be in a flow state where you can complete things much faster and with much ease. Moreover, motivation challenges you to see things differently. What would seem as an obstacle at your work can become your strength when you change your perception towards it. Speaking simply, motivation can help you stay positive in the face of grim situations, and strive to do your best. Motivation and energy go hand-in-hand and are contagious.
Self-motivated people have the power to touch the lives of their fellow workers in a positive way. Your energy can have a positive effect on the people with whom you interact at your workplace. This builds a very healthy workplace environment. With motivation, your daily monotonous routine would not change, but the effort required to complete a task would definitely reduce. It will develop into a habit that you can perform without feeling tired or reluctant.
Motivation gives you pleasure from knowing that you had a productive day at work. It drives you to achieve much more than what you could do on a normal day without it. The feeling of satisfaction is benefiting you on different levels. Most of all, motivation is the only factor that keeps you geared up to achieve your goals that you have set for your life. So whatever your job is or whatever you do, a little motivation will turn it to the better!
