Hey, Greetings for the day!Motivation is a tricky thing. It is tricky, but not at all impossible. Motivation lies in your head and this is the science behind it: Dopamines chemical signal gets passed from one neuron to the next, interacting with various receptors inside the synapse between the two neurons.Another argument is that Dopamine was all about pleasure, but pleasure is just the tip of the iceberg, Dopamines effect on the body is felt in many areas on our respective bodies, including motivation, memory, behaviour, cognition, attention, mood, learning and also pleasurable reward.Low levels of dopamine make people and other animals less likely to work for things, so it has to do with motivation and cost analyses than pleasure itself.Obviously along with this, we must include effort. Most of the times with me, it is just the old-fashioned way and that is nothing but, get up, determine that you are going to do and then with sheer perseverance, go out there and achieve it.Apart from this, you also have to get out there and attend forums with similar interests of yours, so that you can meet like-minded people. If you won't work for yourself and get determined to do things, then who will on your behalf?I also want to let you know that, this is just the beginning, if anything else is there, with which I can help you, do let me know and we can work together to make an effective way out.Thanks.
