You Become What You Think About

An old saying says; "you become what you think about". Most people focus a lot of attention to what they don't want.

Motivation And Expectation

Motivation is to a large degree a result of expectation. If you expect little you will not be motivated but when you expect much you will be highly motivated. If you are not particularly motivated now is the time to change your expectations. Fuel your inner drive with inspiration. Get excited about your prospects.
