Motivation vs. Inspiration - Michael Blevins
”I think of motivation as an external stressor. Fire, cold, hunger or cultural pressure all have the ability to influence the individual but only when in range. This is fleeting. This is unsustainable.

Being “motivated” is a defensive position, it is in reaction to; rather, we need a “because of”.

We need something from within to breath life into our reasons for doing. A spirit (as in essence of). An inspiration. 

Inspiration is offensive, it is aggressive purpose. The difference between the two will multiply your effort.”
