The best motivation comes from within, because it is the most sustainable and authentic. When you have a reason, you have a powerful, driving force.
And always, you do have a reason. The important thing is to connect what you must do with a purpose that is truly yours.
Inspiring words, stories and exhortations from others can remind you of that purpose. Your job is to remember why, at the deepest level, and to translate your purpose into action.
Your life is a continuing opportunity. Every day brings a new way to create meaningful value and fulfillment.
Many outside factors can serve to encourage or discourage you. Ultimately though, the choice to act comes from the inside.
Feel the reality of who you are, of why you are, and of the power you have. The rich fulfillment of your unique purpose is yours to create right now.
