How do you motivate the youths living in developing world for the better future?
I believe you need not to know the meaning of motivation, because motivation is a feeling which comes in you while you are moving towards your goal. Its like a fire burning and the spark in you which leads you to your destiny. motivation is the key factor which creates a willingness and huge amount of driving force to do something useful and achieve something great. So motivation is an important ingredient that every person should have and specially every leader should have. So that they could create more leaders with motivation and lead them more energetically with motivation.When a leader motivates his team and leads them with motivation, the team will always have the willingness and the driving force in them to always to do more things and to develop their ability to do their best. So coming to the point, the main way of motivating the youth is through volunteering, leadership, which means empowering them to become leaders in their city, and through collective friendship working, for social cause. Mainly we can develop them through volunteering, many youth in sri lanka work for many well known NGO's and for many social causes by using a very effective tool of volunteering. And we believe that working together collectively through volunteering brings us more friends more contacts and more opportunities as well. so if you motivate them to solve the society's problems and issues obviously they and the other neighboring people are going to live a happy problem free life. So through volunteering volunteers emerge and through volunteers, leaders are created. so by the ability and mentality of volunteering, volunteer leaders are created and they volunteerly work for the societies issues and in future they become the official leaders of our country and society, so this helps them in building a better future and for the development of the world as well. So the main way that i would motivate the youth is by volunteering and i would encourage them to volunteer, so that they get to learn many useful things informally and formally, officially and unofficially as well.
