A Kick in the Pants

The Powerful Paragraph

When traditional means of motivation are flowing, productivity can feel like a breeze. But when we hit an inevitable plateau, it can be helpful to have something in our back pocket to jump start our motivational mindset.

It could even be listening to or thinking about the success of others. Whatever it is, it should ignite a fire under you and help you get going.
