Let us differentiate between desire and dare.
Motivational quotes circulated on social media inspire us, simply because they touch home with most of us; such as an unhappy work environment, entrepreneurial dreams, toxic relationships, self-love, or motivation to a better lifestyle.
However, it is crucial to acknowledge that these quotes are not directed specifically to us. It is not based on an incident or direct interaction between the sender and receiver. It is simply sending out “positivity” to the cosmos of a social platform.
Be it as it may, some self-help quotes today are hitting on the “desire” factor more than the “dare” factor, and we need to be aware of it, so as not to fall into the traps of self-criticism…that hamster wheel of modern life.
Negativity or challenges do not come randomly. Life is insane when it comes to complicating itself to us, be it in business or in lifestyle. But this new age movement of ultimate positivity: the concept of positive thinking no matter what… no deeper thinking, no evaluation, no planning, is toxic.
The ultimate positivity with the “no matter what” thinking must be revisited. Embarking on anything new in business means it has a chance to succeed or to fail, depending on our actions and what we dare to do.
As a recipient, we have to consciously take the right boost of “motivation” and “positivity” without forgetting that it is just a boost, and reality happens only when the real work is done (dig deep, evaluate, confront, solve, stay or abandon). This new age of ultimate positivity will not liberate us. Our minds, our actions, our consistency, our motivation, our grit will.
