The pleasure is all my. Helping others is helping yourself.

That's in my experience just a phase where you need to go through. Most of the people don't have that nagging feeling, so don't worry too much about it.

Trust me, it's that simple. If you want something, grab it by the balls.

Getting up at a fixed hour was very difficult for me. I tried many times and I failed many times. I practical always 'raped' the snooze button.
I didn't 'feel' it to get up, so I did something different. Instead of hitting the snooze button, I play something from ET - The Hip Hop Preacher, http://www.youtube.com/user/etthehiphopp...=g-user-u.
Now, I always get up without hitting the snooze. You need much more willpower to get up without the snooze button, than playing some motivational speaker but the result is the same.
Action reinforces motivation!! So, if you don't feel it, do something different (but still relevant to your goal).
