101 reasons

Motivation.
Encouragement.
Impulse.
Burning.
Aggression.
Wish.
Desire.

All amazing words,  all have meaning and connections behind them that each of us relate to differently. Something that gets us up in the morning, or gets us to bed at night (we won't mention what time this is being written). Something that gets us dressed and out the door everyday. An end goal we're reaching for daily. It gets us to the gym, eating the right food, and thwarting off the wrong foods.

However we all seem so easily over come by the following.

Distress.
Comfort.
Earn.
Deserve.
Ease.
Laze.

We get distressed by our responsibilities, and what others expect out of us. We are always seeking comfort, that sense love and warmth. At the end of a particularly difficult week month year, we feel we have earned or deserve something, a pay out of sorts. This is my favorite, the idea that we can determine wether or not we deserves something. Where does our deep inner self righteousness come from. We search for ease in our daily routines. Shave time off here and get out of responsibilities there. How many days does your alarm go off and all you wanna do is turn it off roll over and resume blissful rest?

Now don't get me wrong here, "Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy."  2nd Nephi 2:25 and I fully recognize this. We do deserve some goodness and breaks in our lives. But if there is one thing that trips up every human, its this: There is 101 reasons not to do something. The most important thing is to find the 1 reason to do it. and make sure its important. because once you have that 1 truly important reason, next to nothing can stop you. At this point your joy will be found in accomplishing what you have set out to do. 


Side note...


I came across just a couple things that made me laugh when searching for reasons not to do something, or motivational photos. Enjoy!
