Motivation is like Methamphetamine (Addictive Drug)

Why Motivation doesn’t work?

Motivation relies on adrenaline high which fades slowly. This happens because motivation is not directly linked to your goals.

Healthier Alternatives

1. Self-Discipline

This is a self-promise to do one thing every day for the rest of your journey.

2. Inspiration

This is a dream about living your goal. You get pleasure by dreaming which keeps you going every day

3. Habit (a consequence of Self- Discipline)

If you keep the self-discipline for a good amount of time. Your brain accepts the task and it stops questioning you or thinking of excuses.

Conclusion

Motivation is a multi-billion-dollar industry because they sell a product that gives short-lived happiness and people will always need more.
