One minute you think you have the world in your palms, you think anything is possible, the next minute you’re in a blob of depression.
You could be so pumped for a project and you feel like there’s so much to do in so little time. Once your motivation is gone you’ll be amazed at how bored and idle you’ll become.
Everything physically remains the same, the pile of books to be read are still on your reading table, the world is still out there to conquer. The difference is, something inside you is missing. The one thing that kept the whole project together.
Synonyms: drive, passion, zeal.
A popular bumper sticker reads, ‘stay motivated’.
Well, how do you do that?
How do you hold on to something so flimsy?
One minute its there
You see the big picture, you believe your vision is achievable
The next minute its gone
Everything becomes a disparagement.
How do you keep your motivation?
Let Christ be your motivation.
It’s one of the unwritten laws of Faith; substitute Christ for whatever weakness you struggle with.
You may say, Oh! That’s cheating, you cannot just let Christ be everything because you’re so weak to do it yourself.
Well there! You’ve said it. That’s exactly how it is.
He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest on me.
(2 Corinthians 13:9 WEB)
