do YOU have motivation?

*One of my peeps today was feeling a bit down and I came across 2 thought provoking quotes. Thought i would share it with you too.*

“Motivation is a fire from within. If someone else tries to light that fire under you, chances are it will burn very briefly.”

“You can't fly a kite unless you go against the wind and have a weight to keep it from turning a somersault. The same with man. No man will succeed unless he is ready to face and overcome difficulties and is prepared to assume responsibilities.”

  1. Yesterday, I was watching a video about Florence Nightingale. She reminds me of your quote: her motivation came from a fire within. She showed the epitome of motivation and courage when she faced opposition from men in the military hospital that did not think she was capable of doing her job. She persevered, did her best, and is now a legacy who helped revolutionize how hospitals treat patients, while the men who criticized her are now mostly forgotten.
