I know we all got our issues we have to deal with each day, and I know not everything goes the way it's planned, but when you guys feel like you hit a wall, or rock bottom for that matter, what makes you pick yourself back up and try again? (real talk, I'm trying to keep myself motivated as I go through this grueling semester...)

I want to write what I want to be. Instead of following what people tell me I should do, I would rather define my own life and success.

I won't give up until I make it. I'll take breaks, but time is precious and I know eventually I'll get to where I want to be, so the more I push towards it the earlier it will come.

My parents, they've invested too much time and money to facilitate a good life for me just to be a bum.

I feel like I'm here for a purpose. I feel a great responsibility to be there for others even if it comes at my expense sometimes. Definitely my parents,family and my girl. They have all been there for me.


The thought of driving a m3 as an everyday car doesn't hurt either.

Whenever I feel not motivated to work on a goal, I actually stop trying to work towards that goal and do other stuff unrelated to it. Trying new things allows me to get new ideas and inspiration when I get back to it and I make a huge breakthrough right after.

Right now, food.

I've lost a lot of the motivation I had just a few months ago.

Usually I snap out of it quickly because I tell myself that I'm not living up to my potential. I always have hope.

But right now I don't have much motivation. I need something to snap me out. I'm hoping it comes soon and I'm hoping it doesn't cost me much.
edit: Damn my ego. It won't allow me to let things go. But it also drives me.

I hate it when people say we're not capable of doing something. We put a man on the moon. We built the Eiffel Tower out of metal and brawn.

Anything Everything is possible.

That may actually be enough to snap me out of it lol.... 

I've just been discouraged cause I worked hard on something and it wasn't working out. So I needed a short break from it, but that's costing me time, and I'm running out of time.

edit: What you did, JRS, I seen it.

Pride.

I feel like I have the potential to be the best at everything, yet I know that I'm not. With that being said I've made the choice to never be outworked by another person in anything I do.

I don't believe in failure until you make the conscious decision to quit.
