Motivation is not your friend.
If you only wait for motivation to get going then you won’t get very far.
You are never going to find enough motivation to start something completely new,
And if you do it will be hard to get it to stick around once it does show up.
Motivation isn’t a very good freind.
It’s like the one friend who appears after all the chaos has ended and the waters have settled
Don’t rely on that friend
Where to find motivation
You won’t find it on a map or in a treasure chest
You won’t find it in the woods
Or over a rainbow
It won’t come to you either
Motivation you find in doing what you don’t have the motivation to start.
Say its going to the gym
You might not be motivated to go
But once your there and the more you keep going the more motivated you’ll find yourself.
Until death, it is all life
Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
And it’s not always going to be plain sailing,
There is going to be stormy seas
And high rocks to navigate through
We may get a few calm seas and clear skies
But life is a mixture of all the above.
Facing the tough currents, stormy seas and rocky patches mean your living and you may think that they are bad things, but as we sail through life, they are the things that improve your sailing skills, not the calm seas.
Bad chapters can still create great stories
Real life isn’t a movie or a book so that magical ending isn’t going to automatically happen,
But if you keep pushing through your struggles, through the hard times
Then you can turn this bad chapter into a great story but not if you settle this chapter for the ending.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
No one is responsible for your happiness,
And your not responsible for anyone else’s
No one is responsible for your growth
No one is responsible for your career
No one is responsible for the actions you take, or dont take
Stop waiting for other people to solve your problems,
Stop blaming other people,
Just get out there and tend to your garden and watch what happens
It’s all on you.
