The constant feeling of being down and out or in that sunken place where there is no light at the end of the tunnel, is not only depressing but a strong indication of something deeper. On the contrary, aggression, quick agitation, even being egotistical could be a sign of something similar. But regardless of what category is, all signs are pointing to imbalance.

Most of us know of motivation and if you’ve lived enough life you have an understanding of it beyond general terminology. The majority of people have goals and aspirations that they want to achieve and these aspects drive us no matter how big or small it is.
