Motivation
April 17 (UPI) -- The Denver Nuggets, the second seed in the Western Conference, rallied from a 19-point deficit to top the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2 at the Pepsi Center. Nuggets head coach Mike Malone, with his team trailing 73-57, called a timeout with 5:45 left in the third quarter. Malone used the Los Angeles Clippers' historic 31-point comeback against the Golden State Warriors as inspiration for his team. "I could see on some guys' faces which way is this game going to go?" Malone told reporters. "I reminded them what the Clippers did [Monday] night and how much basketball is left. It's only going to happen though if we believe, we commit, we fight and we attack, and the guys took it to heart -- and we closed the game out on a 57-32 run from that point on."

<!-- --> Some days you spring out of bed ready to face the world. Other days, you pull the covers over your head and hide because you are just not feeling it. Ah, motivation.  It is rather vague, right? Whether in your career or in your personal life, motivation helps you succeed with your goals. Simplistically, motivation is the unseen force that causes us to act, change, grow, and meet our goals. It is that peripheral power that pushes us to succeed and gives us the kick-in-the-pants we might need. Motivation can come by way of a looming deadline or a pain-in-the-rear boss that forces us to get things done.
