What will it take to make that pain go away?
Sometimes it’s time. The loss of a loved one or the healing of a wound.
Sometimes you need to focus on the goal and ignore the pain. Like preparing for an exam or training for a marathon.
Sometimes you need to change what you are doing and stop banging your head against the wall. A job, career or relationship that is not working.
The tough part is knowing the difference and selecting your path of pain relief.

Happy or angry – that excitment is part of who you are. That is fundamental to your motivation.
My close freind asked to meet for a beer. I agreed instantly.
My dad asked me to to drive him to his doctor’s appointment. I agreed.

I’m lucky. I love to cook, but I don’t need to cook every day. My wife also likes to cook. She cooks more often than me. I enjoy her cooking.
So – I don’t need to cook. But I enjoy cooking and she enjoys my cooking.
I cook because I want to, not because I have to. Whenever I annouce that I will cook she allows me to do that.
Today I decided to cook because I wanted to. Cooking makes me feel good. It gains me a few points. And I get to have some fun in the kitchen.
