Teenage boy lying in bunkbed looking out of windowSo here listed below are my core source motivation, they are the things that I tell myself in the morning that makes me get out of bed even when I don’t want to:

  1. My peers and every other person are striving to move forward and I too must also strive to move forward, the competition out there is crazy. I don’t want to be left behind.
  2. I AM A MAN! I AM A MAN!! I AM A MAN!!!. And a diligent man always has something to do.
  3. (This might sound carnal). I want to have money.
  4. I have a family to take care of. In the nearest future that is by the grace of God 🙂 .
  5. I want to be totally independent from my parents.
  6. I want to help other people

Numbers 3 and 4 go hand in hand.

For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” – 2 Thess 3:10 tweet

A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, 11 and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed man. – Proverbs 6:10-11 tweet
