just an idea.
Yes, you are absolutely right. I do believe I have all of those things right now. I desire to increase in those areas though.
I relate to the OP because I would always be frustrated with myself for not maintaining the motivation needed to accomplish pretty much any goal that I set. I would always be "inspired" to set goals and to accomplish whatever. But, after a few days, weeks or months, my motivation would dissipate.
I realized that I needed to rehabilitate my thoughts and thought patterns in order to change myself and to maintain constant motivation (for whatever goal).
For example, I have tried many times before to consistenly work out at the gym in order to get in shape. It never lasted until this past year.
I've made it a "mini-purpose" of my life. I have daily affirmations I read, audio cds I listen to, visual representations of what I want to become, etc, etc. Because of this, working out has become a lot more natural and the end goal is something I think about a lot.
