There is a pretty common pattern, in today’s world; someone finds something motivating, and almost immediately, the comments from others are demotivating. Yin and yang, or whatever you want to call it. You can look at all the pedants and de-motivators, and tell yourself “you know what, I’m better than you.” People can argue that it’s bullshit, or cheesy, or cliche. - It doesn’t matter.
If you can find a single grain of truth, in anything that truly sticks with you, that becomes a mantra.
If that changes your life for the better, even in some small way, it’s all worth it.”
