Motivation is like the wind; sometimes it’s there and sometimes it’s not. When the wind blows we can simply set our sail, steer our boat, enjoy the journey and be swept along in the momentum. Naturally, the wind makes our life easy but when it dies down (and it always does) most people will simply stagnate because they have not prepared for the change in conditions.
For them, there will be no progress. No momentum. No results. And while they are hoping for more winds (while drifting back to where they came from), their more practical forward-thinking counterparts have taken out their oars, rolled up their sleeves, bent their backs and continued on their journey.
