If this isn't variety - you're ostensibly the greatest denier! Ud 29/04/14


What is the definition of motivation?

Well I see it as the act of wanting something so bad that you will do whatever it takes in order to achieve it.

In other words, there is no point in starting something if you never intend on finishing it.

For example, quitting an addiction is a notion that should never be entertained unless the threat is carried out in full, thus achieving your goal.

The magnitude of overcoming such a gargantuan task is something that should not be taken lightly.

The road will be hard, not without incident or difficulty, but persistence will lead to reaching the avenue of success.
