There are some concepts that are quite overrated. One of those concepts is “motivation”. When I hear things like “That person is very motivated, he will achieve everything he decides to do” or “Motivation takes you wherever you want to go”, I feel the people who are saying that are really overestimating this concept.
In this days, people only talk about the “macro” and the “mega”. There are mega malls, mega movie theaters, and everyone is concerned about the macroeconomic situation. The motivational images from Instagram says that we need to “Go big”, to aim for mega objectives and mega results. We live in a very conditioned environment.
