I read once somewhere that a successful person doesn't believe in motivation. They don't sit around waiting for it to strike. They don't read inspirational quotes in the morning to get them going. They don't rely on successes of others to drive them away from their own failures.
They just do. Whether or not they feel like it, they just do whatever it is they are determined to do.
Well, I guess I'm not one of those people. It certainly feels to me like motivation is something I either have or I don't have.
And when I don't, I write something like this.
