Stop Looking For External Motivation…


Pro 6:6-8 (KJV) Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

The ant is self motivated. It has no mentor, manager or supervisor. No external motivation whatsoever.  Yet, it’s productivity is unparalleled!

… when desire for external motivation becomes a NEED or a Critical Success Factor, then we begin to slow down with respect to our life’s visions.


Lord, each time I ‘coast’ and can’t find motivation to do the things I should, or each time I take shaky steps and wobble because I do not have a live coach to walk me through some necessary areas, help me to remember the ant and to look to You for motivation to keep going and for direction. Amen.
