Im really trying to understand how to be more persistent (motivated). I feel like I could do amazing things in my life and in others if only I had a more persistent attitude. My long-time friend recently joined the Air Force and when we were talking for the first time after he had been through basic and whatnot, he told me that if nothing else the military made him highly motivated to do things. Now the military is not something I'm thinking of going into by any means, but I would love to go through something that could change my motivation. Do you know of anything at all that could help? Books, courses, people, anything. I just want to put this weakness out of my life forever.
