"The inspiration to take action can be linked to making the choices that instill inside of us a feeling of control - a belief that we are advancing toward meaningful goals. Deep down, it is the sense of self determination that gets us going." — James McPartland
In the great game of life, the specific choice itself matters less in sparking motivation than the assertion of control. Figuring out how a task is connected to something we care about, and why it truly matters, makes it easier to start. Self motivation becomes easier when we see our choices as affirmations of our deepest values and our highest goals.
