That word has changed for me over the years.
I am sure it has changed for the world over the years, especially with the rise of motivational speakers.
But I just want to get to the root. Motive.
What is your motive, your reason?
So, what Motivates you?
What is your motive to do what you are doing today?
Does your motive change? Should it?
When I hear motivation I think of a motivational speaker, when I hear motive I think crime scene. One is hype, the other is a reason.
Be deliberate about today. Look at your motives behind everything you do, from what you eat to what you waste time on, then decide, does this really make sense for me to do or do I lack proper motivation in my life?
