"Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice."- Wayne Dyer.
How you choose to take life on is completely your choice. You can choose to be a good sport or a sour soul, no one can make that decision for you.
To get from 1 to 10, you must be willing to do whatever it takes to count the number. If you don't take steps, it won't get taken for you.
The art of living is not completely defined, we just have to learn to make the rules as we go on.
There are no handbooks, no manuals and no guidance counselor designated for living. We all have to take the journey one step at a time and hope to get to the right destination.
Motivating yourself is the best way I think you can hack the living process because, you must be strong enough to be able to pick life's lessons as you go and apply them to suit you.
Be miserable or motivate yourself, the choice is completely yours to choose.
