Your habits play a huge role.

Because what you do regularly adds up in your default setting. 

After some point of time you do it anyway (acting choicelessly).

 Motivation needs to sink into the habitual patterns.

After motivation chips in, we fly high. 

We try to achieve everything at once.

Now realistic planning goes out for a toss.


Motivation in itself becomes a Trap

You tend to go back to the same loop. 

And you fall back to the pray of repeated kicks after kicks…

But questioning involves you to doubt going inside.

It demands you to question your actions, ideas and beliefs.


Your Actionable tip

Show up on what really matters. 

Brush aside all the feeling and emotions.
