Do something that scares you – at least once a year.
If you want to grow scare yourself. It doesn’t need to be sky diving – although that would work.
What have you done recently that scared you? If you can’t think of anything you are not growing enough.

Motivation to buy lottery tickets
Why do people buy lottery tickets? What is the motivation to bet on such a long shot? One of the ways to examine and understand motivation is to review the apparent stupid (illogical) things that people do.
Perhaps you buy lottery tickets and might recognize your motivation from this list.
What motivation drives people to buy lottery tickets?
The easy win
Reward without effort
It is my time
The world owes me one
I deserve it
My boss is an idiot
The “if only dream”
It’s only a few dollars
Somebody has to win
You must admit there is no logical reason to buy lottery tickets, yet every week people find the motivation to buy lottery tickets.
Look at the strange things people do. Examine their actions for the motivation and you will better understand people and how to motivate them.
