Motivation comes from within.
It requires doing the right thing when no one is watching and when everyone is, yet it is unpopular.
Even when alone in your commitment to stay the course, with nothing to gain and possibly much to lose.
That unwavering devotion to persevere must come from within and cannot be dependent on external conditions.
It’s a personal choice that each person chooses for themselves. We cannot make others follow. We can only determine what we will do ourselves.
Those who require punishment or reward to influence their integrity are disingenuous.
Those who choose the right thing always have discovered that doing so is the prize itself.
