When you’re driven, laziness is no longer a consideration. You no longer depend on the ephemeral whims of motivation. You’re now compelled by something as powerful and primal as the desire to procreate, seek sustenance, and survive. For boundless energy and enthusiasm, focus on building your drive, but also understand the role motivation plays in your jubilation.

Ordinary people focus on “chasing” success, without ever working on themselves. Success is a natural byproduct of following the basic fundamentals. So stop chasing what you desire—whether it’s love, money, success, or happiness. Become the best version of yourself, and your desires will chase you.
