You can have all the tools in the world, but if you don’t have motivation then you won’t have the drive to reach your goals. So where does your motivation come from?
Before you can establish goals, you must first reach a place where you are motivated to accomplish those goals.

So before I establish my goals (step 3) I first focused on what motivates me. Motivation is key!
