Dear O and friends,
I am still working on inspiring myself, the motivation is getting mixed in with all the work.
IF YOU CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT I JUST WROTE, THEN YOU KNOW WHAT I AM GOING THROUGH.
The young, they may not have the DESIRE to drive them, but they have talent to pick up. Some of the young do not have TALENT but they have a natural ability to pick up. Then there are the others who do not need that NATURAL ability because they are young and can pick up on anything fast. Who needs motivation when you young?
I was listening to this motivational tape one day, I think it was called, “The Strangest Mystery”. It said people are not motivated to do more, when they know they will have a check to live on. There is no drive to accomplish more, when your being paid to do what you are doing already. Some people do not recycle, because they already paid for the can. Why save a penny while you have a dollars in your pocket.
Sorry I am off the subject, now where am “I” today that is a good question? I have always had desire as an artist, and the inspiration to be a writer but something was missing, oh I know it was the check that was paying the bills. Now that is not my issue, back to straight hard work and my ambition, mixed in with the desire. What I do not have is the the natural ability of youth, that means the learning curve is gone.
