    Hello guys, sorry for my English I am still learning.

    I am struggling with motivation for take action and maintain the commitment with these actions. I can make some changes in my life, overcome some challenges, but I don’t have the strong desire to do the things I need to do for really become the person I want to be. I feel unhappy with my life, but at the same time it feel easier continue with the same old habits.

    So, I would like to know your thoughts about motivation and if you think porn can really affect our motivation.

    Hey mate, motivation is a really interesting topic and one on the list of things to write asap.

    Firstly, to answer your question, yes, masturbation has a big impact on motivation. Masturbating decreases your testosterone levels, which is the hormone that gives you aggression and drive. So, abstaining from masturbating will give you far more drive and determination.

    But, and this is a big but… trying to be more motivated isn’t a sustainable long-term strategy. If you’re waiting to be motivated before you take action, you’re just going to be waiting and waiting and waiting and sometimes it’ll be there, and sometimes it won’t.

    A far more productive strategy is to acknowledge that you don’t feel motivated and you don’t really feel like taking action, and then just do it anyway. Don’t wait for lightning, don’t wait for massive amounts of drive and determination, just acknowledge that you don’t have that but just get moving anyway.

    That way, finding motivation will be a powerful tool when it arrives, but your life won’t be dependent on it.

    Does that make sense?



    Yes, make sense.
    This open a new world of possibilities, thanks for the answer.



    Great to hear 🙂
