"By working on ourselves (with the help of a therapist or on our own) we are able to "work through" our anxieties little by little.

Anxieties limit us, they want to enslave us and often succeed in doing so."
If we are motivated to do something, we feel like it. An example of this is motivation for professional work. If, for example, a freelancer sees that his or her freedom in work and commitment results in a greater sense of purpose and more income, he or she is increasingly motivated.
