The desire to want is not enough to make someone do what is needed to get it. This is to say: desire ≠ motivation (to do).
We tend to want a lot more than we can actually get. I feel the solution lies in deeply caring about what you want. If you care enough, you will do enough and make it happen.
You want to learn something, care about learning it. You want to achieve something, care about achieving it. You want to give something, care about giving it.
There are far too many distractions around us. If you don’t care, you won’t do.
