Motivation for the Unmotivated

During the past week, I watched an inspirational video in English concerning a man suffering from ALS.  ALS is a degenerative disease that affects nerves cells and the spinal cord, leading to eventual death.  In the video, the man suffering from ALS was expected to die five years within diagnosis, but has miraculously survived for ten years and counting.  Not only has he survived, but he has continued to live life fulfilling his passion: writing.  Even though he cannot move his limbs or talk, he has still found a way to express his thoughts and share it with people around the world.
ImageMy question is, if a man suffering from a life threatening disease can still find a will to do what he loves, then why can’t someone looking to get into shape get off the couch and go to the gym?  Or start making better food choices and improving eating habits?  If you really want to get in shape, you have to be motivated to do so.  You have to want to attain your goal so badly, that you’d be willing to make sacrifices for it.
