Find Your Passion

I'm a Millennial. I have the 90's kid nostalgia and was the generation that grew up while the internet was changing the world. I also grew up with parents that had the traditional work life. You know the one I'm talking about; the Solid 50 Hour Work Week - Complete Loyalty to the Company - Not Sure What Purpose I Have - Only Look Forward to the Weekends - Hate Every Monday Career. Okay, that may be too cynical and I'm forever grateful for the sacrifices my parents made for me, but seeing the majority of the workforce dreading the coming Monday through Friday year after year made a huge impression on me and my generation.

As January is winding down a lot of us out there are coming to the realization that those 2019 Resolutions or Goals are much harder to achieve than we originally planned out. 

It's hard out there. All we are doing is trying to better ourselves in some way with the promising start of a new year and then we get life thrown in our faces. Work, kids, our own self sabotaging ways continue to throw us off the path to success. We begin to feel miserable about failing (once again) and begin to have a defeatist mentality. F*ck it, it's not like I'd really achieve that goal anyways so I might as well not even try. 

Why does this continue to happen? Because we are looking at the source of our actions in the wrong way. 

Motivation vs Discipline
