Thank you, that was very helpful.
Here's a good article that can help you become more motivated: [url=http://www.kratosguide.com/16-habits-you-should-do-every-day/]http://www.kratosguide.com/16-habits-you-should-do-every-day/[/url]
No problem, I'm glad you found it useful.
It's actually better to have a slow process because overtime the beneficial things you are doing become a part of you that you just have to do, like sleep for example. You usually don't need to read about the benefits of sleep to actually sleep, it's a must. Likewise, as you slowly build up your beneficial habits it gets to a point where you must do them.
If you choose to change yourself in a short period of time, like say in just one day, then your willpower will only take you so far before you end up drained. Remember the saying slow and steady wins the race? Think of it instead as slow and steady finishes the race.
Well, it's certainly a different approach from the one I've been taking. I was trying to motivate myself through discipline, but my willpower isn't very strong. My mind likes to wander a lot.
The idea of building motivation up like exercising your body to become fit was an intriguing idea. I hadn't thought of it like that before, and I want to try motivating myself like this article explains. It's worth a try at least, and I'm hoping that it will work.
