Rise and Shine (II). Motivation

Motivation. You have it or you don’t.

I was once told that nobody can motivate you to do something that you don’t really want to do. Because, as climber Paige Claasen defines it perfectly in Serious About Sarchasm:

There is a really fine line between excuses and the reality of how hard this is…

It’s so easy to cross the line and stop ourselves from doing something… It’s too early, late, cold, dark, steep, high, hard, time consuming… Whatever.

But, just ask yourself if you really want to find out if you can make it, what comes next… And yes, sacrifices will be made, and you may need to wake up earlier, stay up late or train harder harder and harder. It’s all up to you.

Is it worth it? Oh, my friend, there is only one way to know…

So Rise and Shine.
