You know anyone that has one of those
Moms that’s always sending forwards?
That’s my mom lol.
Mama bear is a great person, but sometimes
She gets a little too carried away
Now, I’m a bit paranoid now from all the emails
I was suppose to forward that I didn’t…
NE ways, today I want to talk to you about
Motivation or the lack of it, to be more
Motivation is easy to come by, seriously
Everyone has motivation, but what becomes
Difficult is maintaining it.
I can carrot and stick you all day and
As soon as I take that carrot away,
You’re back to doing the same old stuff
So the question becomes, not how
Do you get motivated? But
How do you stay motivated?
Well young grasshopper, to learn the answer
You have to first ask yourself, “why”
You see, the who, what, or how can get you lost.
Those are very fluid and can change in an instant
Leaving you blowing in the wind waiting for the
Next gust of opportunity to show up.
But when you know why then the world opens up
Your world opens up, because now it doesn’t become
Simply a matter of if the conditions are right.
It’s time to create a firm concept of “why” so you
Have the ability to MAKE the conditions right, because you
Will recognize the opportunity in every moment.
There is an opportunity to be seized every moment it’s
Really a matter if your reason for doing what you’re doing
Is strong enough.
I could go a lot more into this, but I want to leave you with
This for the day:
When you know WHY; how, what, and when become irrelevant
What truly creates AND sustains motivation is the strength of your
Reasoning to be motivated in the first place.

P.S. If you want to chat more about motivation, I would encourage
You to continue the discussion with me and some highly motivated
People here in my free private Facebook group Project SELFFY.
