Still you think you do
It's amazing how many posts about motivation I can read on the web. So I just have a few questions : What is all the fuss about motivation? Why is it that we need so much to be motivated?
I happen to spend some time reading those above-mentioned post and got moved by quotes more than once. Most of the time, they give me a feeling of relief but only when I've been motivated before by something else do I feel fully receptive to them.
Reading about motivation and trying to be inspired is good but it is not enough. Looking for motivation outsides ourselves is like burning an amazing fire but a fire of hay : it doesn't last.
To keep the fire lasting, you need to feed it wood. And that is your personal experience and the ability you have to step outside of your usual ways of being.
Motivation is our true nature
My guess, preposterous as it may sound is that motivation is our true nature. Only we need to read or listen about it to remind us what it is we are truly made of. Motivation speeches have a lasting effect on you if you have ressources inside and do not only rely on this as an exterior source of fuel.
