Motivation is a mythical unicorn that does not exist.
If you are waiting for motivation then you will not be successful. If you need motivation then your dreams are not big enough.
I know what it feels like to be tired or procrastinate. I have spent many nights going down the YouTube rabbit hole when I needed to get “more important” things done. I kept waiting for motivation and the more I waited the more I realized that it was never coming. Maybe some people get a ray of light shining down on them or a burst of confidence and energy but that has not been my experience. All of my creative work has been a battle. A constant struggle from getting the project done and then another battle of sharing it.
To win this battle I have installed habits, structure, discipline and commitment. I have taken complete responsibility for my life.
I feel better when I do not rely on motivation.
