Can I be happy and motivated at the same time?

In a previous post, I discussed if meditation was making me lazy. I referenced a quote, “Motivation is borne out of discontent with the state of the world at present.”

This statement immediately jumped off the page.

I hadn’t seen the statement before and hadn’t thought about motivation this way. As usual, my brain quickly fell down a rabbit hole of curiosity:

“So, if you are happy with the world, you will never be motivated?”
