Sometimes, successful people lead us to believe that they keep going, 24/7/365 based on sheer willpower and passion. You hear buzzwords everywhere and you think that if you just find that one thing that drives you, you’ll be all set. Naturally, if you believe this and find yourself struggling to find that one thing, you might feel defeated. Remove the notion that you’re missing a secret ingredient. You aren’t missing anything. Rather, you’re misunderstanding, which brings me to my next point.
It’s easy to get swept up in the hype of what everyone else is doing. It’s even more easy to lose yourself when you’re in a group following a certain path. I was part of a group of people who enrolled in a personal development course, and while it was a powerful and life changing course, something inside of me felt off. It was time to break free.
How can you expect to reach a dream that you haven't defined? And the beauty is, your dream is yours to create! It's not to be dictated to you although some may try to do just that. But you aren't held to the dreams others make for you... you are free to design your own.
You hear people talking about how great their run was and how good they feel afterwards.

Did you know that one of the biggest obstacles to our success is stopping just before we cross the finish line of our goal? This is a normal human tendency and definitely something to be aware of. Starting an important task is difficult. Continuing with it amidst distractions and potential pitfalls is also not easy. But perhaps most challenging of all is once we are 90% complete with what we are working on, finishing that final 10% of the task.
Knowing your "Why" is essential. And we should start with motivation. What is motivation? Why is it so important to be motivated before we even think to do just about anything? Can we buy that universal solution in a store? What hides behind motivation? What drives it? And what do you do when your motivation is about to dry out?
