Have you noticed that motivation can be a matter of perspective?
Great – another day – I can’t wait to get started.
Rats – another day, another dollar – what a drag.
Hurray I can go skiing.
Rats it’s a miserable day to drive.
Wow – let’s count the number of train cars.
Damn – how long will this take?
He doesn’t want to buy. What do I do now?
Great! No need to waste time. Now I can move on.
The boss wants to see you
Cool. I can’t wait to tell him about what I’ve been doing.
Not today. I’m not finished yet.
Motivation is a matter of perspective. It really is about the glass being half empty or half full. Your motivation is about you. It’s not about the things around you.
