Motivation is crucial to ensure success and allow a tolerable migration outside of the comfort zone. With the correct motivation and support, you can move mountains. However, motivation must go deeper than just saying, “you can do it!”. What is key is that it is the right type of motivation from the right source. When you receive motivation/advice from a person who has been in the exact same situation, it can help you put things in perspective and see what can be accomplished with hard work. In this world, where people are constantly racing from one task to the next, utilizing the advice of someone who has lost the weight and can help you repeat that success is key. The same thing applies to investments, job seekers and successful career mentors.
