To live by choice, not by chance.
To be motivated, not manipulated.
To be useful, not used.
To make changes, not excuses.
To excel, not complete.
I Choose self esteem, not self pity.
I Choose to listen to my inner voice, not the random opinions of others.
I Choose to do the things that you won't, so that I can continue to do the things that you can't.
Motivated, not manipulated.
Be useful, not used.
Some people are naturally self motivated. Some people are not motivated, but they realize it, and they seek external motivation. Some people are not motivated and do not seek motivation - they are the dead weight. Useless.
To be useless is to fail to have useful qualities. This is not a good way to stumble through life. But many people settle for petty uselessness.
To be useful takes motivation to go beyond yourself and look for the betterment of others. At the very least, to commit to the time and effort to better oneself. why better oneself? For the betterment of the world to the extent that you can.
