Forcing Yourself On Days You Don't Feel Like It

here are some days where all goes smoothly. All goes “according to plan”; most of all your enthusiasm, your drive for action. And then it seems, like you are off to a great start, and nothing along the way can stop you.

And maybe indeed nothing may stop you, but what if it’s not the obstacle that is going to represent the problem, but rather the drive itself; the enthusiasm, the passion, the motive, the craving for success and action?
