motivation
Motivation is defined as: the general desire or willingness of someone to do something. That means what motivates you is centralized precisely to your specific needs and wants. Motivation is supposed to be your drive to achieve something but most times our motivation is used as an unreliable stimulator.

In actuality you are not doing anything but masking your failure to move forward beyond those “powerful, uplifting” words. Read More What Motivates You?
