The Riddle of Motivation

By Donna Krech

Do you know the answer to this riddle?

I am your constant companion,
I am your greatest helper or your heaviest burden.
I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
I am at your command.
Half of the tasks you do you might just as well turn over to me,
And I will do them quickly and correctly.

I am easily managed, you must simply be firm with me,
Show me exactly how you want something done;
After a few lessons I will do it automatically.
I am the servant of all great people and alas of all failures as well.

Those who are great I have made great,
Those who are failures I have made failures.
I am not a machine, but I work with all of the precision of a machine,
Plus the intelligence of a person.

Now, you may run me for profit or you may run me
For ruin. It makes no difference to me.
Take me, train me, be firm with me,
And I will lay the world at your feet.
Be easy with me and I will destroy you.

Who am I?

I am called habit.
I wanted to share this poem with you because it rings so true. Habits can make or break you. In Never Ending Motivation you'll discover how to overcome negative habits. You'll discover how we go through our day without realizing the things we think are occurring just "as normal" are in fact from actual choices! You'll learn how to see a habit that has kept you from your goals for years simply because you didn't realize it was a habit. (They are not the ones you may think.) Once realized, habits can be altered quite easily... one step at a time.
If you've ever struggled to maintain your motivation and see your goals through, you'll want to know this: there is a way to maintain your motivation forever... It's called Never Ending Motivation and it works!
