How To Get Motivated To Do Something

“Action isn’t just the effect of motivation, but also the cause of it.”

Mark Manson has an interesting theory about the root of motivation and how you can motivate yourself to do just about anything.

He believes motivation is sparked by action and has developed what he calls the “Do Something” principle to help people overcome their fears and take action toward what they want in life.

As he explains, “If you lack the motivation to make an important change in your life, then do something, anything really, and then harness the reaction to that action as a way to begin motivating yourself.”
