Can we REALLY be motivated to do something? Or are you motivated by doing something? I think it is more often the latter. When it’s really cold early in the morning, like it has been lately, I’m honestly more motivated to stay in bed than start my day. But if I give in to that temptation, I’m just a little disappointed in myself for the rest of the day. If I overcome the temptation, I’m a lot more motivated throughout the day. If I had waited until I was motivated, I would never have gotten out of bed. Don’t wait to get motivated enough to get started. Get started. The motivation comes later.
