I used to believe that I could fake self motivation and it would end up being motivation. But then I realized that I wasn’t faking it, I was creating it. I put a smile on my face even when I am tired or stressed because I know the simple act of smiling can start a chain reaction of improving my energy, mood, and outlook. I start the chain of events that will lead to me keeping my schedule moving. And I schedule everything that has to happen in my day. I do have days for not having a schedule as well.
