Five brave men met in the gloom of Sunshine Park…water wings and moonscreen in hand. They wanted to PARTY!! Before the festivities began, YHC asked them this probing question: do actions spur motivation or vice versa? The responding mumblechatter indicated that it was clearly too early for such philosophical ponderings…


So…what had happened at the PARTY was…

Mosey lap to lighthouse around swings and to skate park entrance.

Action isn’t just the effect of motivation…it’s also the cause of it!

Most of us wait on emotional inspiration, to lead to motivation, and finally, desired action.

Motivation is fickle and fleeting… thus we must become MOTIVATED BY OUR ACTIONS.

Obey the ‘do something’ principle for the stuck places in your life…
