What Motivates You?

If life, we often find ourselves not doing things that we are obliged to do, such as chores, prayer, work, studying, etc. This is mostly due to the lack of motivation we have. Motivation is what drives us to do things we don't want to do. Of course, life isn't as simple as doing what we should do and not doing what we don't have to do. One cannot simply do something he doesn't want to do without motivation. It isn't logical.

This puts us in a sort of dilemma. Where do we get motivation? What makes us pray, do chores, work, and study? If we should lack motivation, where would we look for it?

IMO, the wordly chores/things we do in our day to day life becomes monotonous after sometime and we as humans feel boredom and tired of it

So to again recharge and overcome this natural phenomenon we either try to bring some changes in the way we do these things and also try to get motivation by seeing others.

We as followers of Ahlulbayt (as) get that requierd motivation & inspiration from them (as), the way they (as) lead their lives in this same world by going through so many difficulties & hardships.

And most importantly contemplating the reason why we are born and what Allah wants from us by being part of this finite world. Our duties towards our parents, elders, brothers in faith and brothers in humanity.

Though this is not easy but gaining knowledge (wordly as well as spiritual) and getting marefat of our holy Masoomeen(as) is the best form of motivation one can attain in order to reach the goal Allah has set for us.
