Action isn’t the effect of motivation, but the cause of it

It is often believed that action needs to be preceded by motivation, which is preceded by inspiration. Not at all. It's the opposite: Action provides the Inspiration that gets you Motivated.

Your actions create the emotional reactions to motivate your future actions.Not the other way around.
