Where true motivation comes from

Sparks of inspiration don’t empower us for long.  The meme that inspired you to believe in yourself…that encouraging quote…those won’t affect long-term motivation.  You are motivated by what you believe is possible.

The master variable is Progress.  “Learn to speak Chinese” is a life-long project.  “Learn to introduce myself in Chinese” is a quick win with unmistakable progress that empowers and motivates you to persist.
