And we see that here, year after year after year.
Take Tony Robbins, the most successful motivational coach ever. Think on this:
30 years of motivational works, an estimated take home of 30 million bux a year translates to a LOT OF PEOPLE being motivated.
Some of these have spent tens of thousands of dollars to feel the heat of a Tony pep rally. They come back from the island all fired up (if not downright burned).
Then 6 months later, they need more, they have fallen back into their old habits.
And after 30 years, these people have become motivated failures. Failures by their own accounts because they have not achieved those Giant dreams which had been awakened.
In 10th grade Latin class I learned motive came from a latin word meaning to MOVE.
Motivational appeals move you mentally for a short period of time, but because most don't understand how and why the brain works, the movement (mentally toward positive belief) is short term and temporary.
A motive is a REASON to move.
It is the stimulus which causes a response of ACTION, or a response of movement.
All the positive thinking, the visualization, the manifestation practices in the world won't work unless there is a foundation. And too many have a foundation of sand on someone's beach, and when the tides come in, it washes everything away.
A foundation built on solid ground, on understanding the how and why, serves you better than the quick little shots of instant energy drinks that motivational stuff provides.
IF you find yourself in constant need of these little shots of motivation, you would be wise to take a look at your foundation...the WHY you are doing what you are doing...and the WHAT
the outcome will be when the motion is either concluded or at a point of rest which allows a look back to all the action, and then you can correct your action and adjust your MOVEMENT to get where you want to go.
So, how much deodorant do you need today?
