z1freeride, what is your purpose? Does it happen to be something that relates to the OP?
Yes, true motivation (purpose) comes from successful thinking patterns and not from some external source (motivational speaker/story, new year's resolutions). Those types of motivation (inspirational motivation) ALWAYS fade after a certain amount of time.
My purpose? To obtain and increase in: Happiness, Confidence, Self-esteem.
What is the OP??
