“Do what makes you happy.” “Be somebody who makes everybody feel like a somebody.” “Strive for progress, not perfection.” Little pieces of advice are a lot like pieces of chocolate cake. They lift you up, sweeten your outlook and fill a small void you may not have known you had. But if there was actual chocolate cake involved, you may not need those motivating mantras at all. You could just think of this sweet, protein-packed reward and, suddenly, 5 a.m. spin class makes you very, very happy.
