I do not understand this quote. I understand that my beliefs can motivate me to action but I do not understand how my motivations are limited to my beliefs?

I'm with you there, Brenda. One of the biggest motivators that springs to mind is greed.
Fortune favors the brave.
Tickling is no laughing matter.

Sorry for the delay, I missed seeing the quote of the week.

We think before we act. Positive or negative, it all starts with a thought. The real person lives inside this physical body, in our brain. Each of us in a composite of our life experiences which form our beliefs. If we are raised to think that we are the center of the universe, greed and unkindness or at least thoughtlessness is the result. If we are taught that other people's feelings matter, that other people's lives matter then we will be kind and do kind things. Belief>thought>action.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Some things we are hard-wired to be motivated toward, procreation for example.

In 1948 the world's population was estimated at around 2.5 billion, now we have around 7 billion, we must be the world's most motivated generation ever. Big Grin
