Sometimes motivation is hard to come by. The drive and energy that inspires us to action are completely gone. So, we’re left with fatigue, a dull spirit, and a whole lot of procrastination. We’re more prone to think of our goals as something we’ll get to in the future, instead of something we can work on now. An unmotivated feeling can last a few minutes to a few hours, days, weeks, and even much longer. This quote, by Norman Vincent Peale, reveals an effective technique to being more motivated and energized no matter what. The trick is to orient your goals as something bigger than yourself. Reflect on how accomplishing them can lead to positive change. How can they lead to a better world? Now, that is quite the motivation.
