The 5 Step Process to Develop Life Long Motivation

The 5 Step Process to Develop Life Long Motivation
Motivation is often cited as the magical answer to everything you want. If you were motivated you would lose that weight, write that book, start the business and so on. So how do we develop the habits and mind power needed to stay motivated on a daily basis? Here is my 5 Step Process to Develop Life Long Motivation. But, here’s a question: What if motivation never strikes? What are you going to do then? Is Motivation The Solution?

What I am inquiring after is exactly what we don’t get at the end of Job – his prayer life after all the trauma. What do I mean by this? I mean that, even after one shuts one’s mouth, stops complaining, and lets God be God, one still has to reckon with the fact that this God is not a principle, but a person.
