Studies show that money is not the best motivator (you've all seen that cute little animated video). I struggle with motivation, so I fall back on discipline. I'm a planner and list-maker. I get up every morning, make a list, set an earnings goal for that day, and don't stop until I drop. I find that when people say they are unmotivated or uninspired, they really mean they have no self-discipline. Nike was right - JUST DO IT! Don't think about it. You're not an actor, you don't have to look for your "motivation." I'll tell you where motivation lives. Motivation lives right beyond the rewards you get from hard, disciplined work. Once you start enjoying the rewards, you won't need motivation, because you will know that the discipline pays off. Easier said than done, I know, but it is true that nothing worth having every came easy.
