The Key to Motivation?

The key to motivation, in my humble opinion, is elusive. Know why?

Because most of us don’t have the patience to analyze the question long enough to find the simple answer.

Know what the simple answer is?

A compelling purpose.

It’s profoundly simple. And, simply profound.

Like what my Doctor told me when he said I needed to focus on only two things to lower my cholesterol. Know what those two simple things are?

I know you know. It’s two things and everybody knows. You don’t have to go to medical school to know this. It’s too simple to require an education.

Drum roll please…..

Diet and exercise.


Find a compelling purpose in life. You’ll be so motivated, it will be mind-blowing.

Until you start to hit the obstacles life throws our way.

This is why simple doesn’t mean easy.

Good luck out there today. Hope you stay focused, even when life is throwing you sucker punches. Learn how to fight back.

Motivation is the best defense against a tough opponent. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
