People always ask what’s my motivation to achieve my goals, but I always reply “none.”

Don’t depend on motivation to achieve success, but rather count on discipline, commitment, and dedication to strive towards the goals you pursue in.

Accept where you are and take accountability for where you want to go in life.

Only then will you achieve greatness.
