Are you tired of feeling uninspired and unmotivated? Well, let me tell you something, motivation is like a trash bin, you think it’s going to be filled with gold, but it’s just full of garbage. But don’t worry, I’ve got a solution for you that’s better than any motivational quote or guru. It’s called coffee, and I’ve got plenty of it.

Motivation lasts for a very short time, and it’s not something you can always rely on. But that doesn’t mean you can’t achieve your goals. The truth is, you don’t need the motivation to take action.

You need to stop waiting for it and start doing it.

Whatever you want in life, whether it’s success or happiness, you have the power to make it happen. But it’s not going to be easy. It’s going to take hard work, patience, and a lot of optimism.

You’re going to face obstacles and setbacks, but that’s okay. They’re a part of the process. And every time you overcome an obstacle, you’ll be one step closer to your goal.

So, don’t wait for motivation to strike. Wake up every day and take action, make progress, and never give up. Because you can make anything happen. Don’t let anyone or anything hold you back.

You can do great things, so go out there and make it happen!

  2. Look to nothing, not even for a moment except to reason — Marcus Aurelius

Learn to live well through your life hardships

From the book, Life is Hard by Kieran Setiya, you will learn common struggles (infirmity, loneliness, grief, and failure) may stop you from enjoying some activities, but they can’t stop you from enjoying them.

Key Takeaways

  • Being a wheelchair user means you can’t run, but it doesn’t mean you can’t play basketball, listen to music, enjoy a sunset, or fall in love. Pain can become overwhelming, but it can also teach compassion.
  • Without friends, there’s no reason to live. Most friendships are based on the virtues of the friend. Those with the most virtues have the most friends. If you lose some virtues, expect to lose some friends — Aristotle
  • All people have value regardless of their virtues. This value is called dignity. Its opposite is price, or the value we attach to objects that can be replaced — Immanuel Kant
  • Grief causes pain, but it’s suffering that comes from loving and living well. The more love you share, the more risk the suffering that will come when you lose them. But it’s a suffering we should hope to endure, not avoid.
  • Failure creeps into our lives every day. When we try to fit the story of our lives into a linear narrative, we set ourselves up for failure. They have fits and starts and thousands upon thousands of successes and failures. This is not to say that we should forget ambitious goals. We should strive for success and focus on the journey and not the destination.

I will leave you with this, “We all fail multiple times, but we also succeed multiple times — which one you focus on is up to you.”

Snippets from Experts

    • If you are able to think then you are able to make different choices. If you are able to make different choices, you are able to improve. If you are able to improve, with enough time, you are able to overcome anything — Mark Manson
    • If you’re lacking clarity, motivation, and direction, you’re lacking constraints — Tiago Forte
    • Write out your ideal vision for yourself and the consequences of staying the same. Change happens when the pain of mediocrity becomes stronger than your fear of failure — Dakota Robertson
    • People will copy your startup. Your entire product. Everything. When it happens, say thank you. Then, just keep executing. Because people only copy the best — Andrew Gazdecki
    • Instruction does much, but encouragement, everything — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
    • Zero-sum thinking is dangerous. Distance yourself from any mindset that has you spending time bringing others down. Celebrate everyone’s wins and you’ll start winning more. A rising tide lifts all boats — Sahil Bloom
    • Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become — James Clear
    • There are phases where 3-4 hours of work is enough. But then there are periods where a new possibility presents itself, absolute clarity is reached, and 16-hour days become automatic. Work becomes play. Everything else becomes a distraction — Dan Koe
