Motivation is the Cause of Movement/Happiness is our Ultimate Desire/More Happy vs. Less Unhappy/Intermediate Steps

In this talk, Bruce Di Marsico first discusses motivation. Motivation can be defined as whatever causes movement. What causes our movement is wanting something to take place. We don’t need to be aware of wanting intermediate steps, because wanting a goal makes the intermediate steps take place.

Every goal is fundamentally an intermediate step to the ultimate goal of happiness, which is to feel the way we want to feel. Since no desire needs to be fulfilled for happiness, ultimately our motivations have no reasons, they just are.

Motivation can be based on being happy, and becoming happier instead of being unhappy, and becoming less unhappy.
