Find something you want to do so bad and so huge and foolish that only you and God himself understand why you’re doing it. Don’t look for external motivation, don’t look for internal, rely on the motivation that comes from taking the first step at the base of a mountain. The step that commits you to the act. The step that frees you from needing reason. The step is an act. The act is a pledge. You may not complete your mission, you may find a better one to replace it, you may even die trying… but the point isn’t completion. The point is that first step, freeing yourself from the poor excuses for reasons that drive you now, and the unneeded expectations of others.
