screw motivation.

“if i can just get motivated i’ll be ok”

Everyone looks to motivation like it’s some EXTERNAL thing . . like its food that we can swallow & it MIRACULOUSLY gives us an overload of energy . .

Relying on external things is like a drug . . you need that fix daily . . you need batteries so you can function 100% . . what’s the problem ??? batteries run out.

And what happens when those external things change ?? Because they will . . THEN what are you going to do ???

If some bodybuilder with a 6 pac is motivating you now . . come off season . . he’s/she’s fat . . what’s going to keep you motivated ??

Motivation doesn’t come from the OUTSIDE . . you can’t feel it .. touch it . . explain it . .

It’s something deeper than we’ll probably ever know . .  that inner voice . . that inner drive that you have . . it comes from the DOING . . you get motivated by getting out there and doing what needs to be done . . then you start seeing results . . all of a sudden you don’t need a REASON to do something . . you simply can’t see yourself NOT doing it . . that is TRUE DRIVE . .

No quote or motivational book is going to help you if you don’t help yourself.
