    You can be happy. Nothing is required to be happy. In fact, if you clear your mind of all thoughts about the world, yourself and everything, and just be still, you will become totally ecstactic instantly. You will feel as free as the wind. This is the Zen state of no mind, with no effort.

    Even without motivation, you can successfully sleep.

    Just sit and do nothing. We spend most of our lifes doing nothing it could be just waiting for a train or something and while you are waiting you are just sitting doing nothing most of the time with no motivation at all

    sleep. I would say sleep requires the complete opposite of motivation. I know when I am completely unmotivated in the morning, I can just stay in bed and sleep several more hours. Doesn't always end up being the best decision of the day though.

    I can poke around on the internet all day long without even trying. Maybe I'll get something accomplished, maybe I won't, but I don't need anything to get me here.

    Taking care of my children-----I do enjoy it and do not require any motivation for it.

    Scare the living daylights out of people with one of my many ghost stories, or fairy-tales.

    My motivation overall has become how I do something rather than what the something is.

    It brings a whole new perspective into my experience of daily life.

    I focus on being present, feeling the magic of the moment, giving attentive awareness to the doing. It is being while doing.

    This requires no motivation. Simply a natural longing of the heart to be in the Now. When it is working in me, I can 'do' something that my personality opposes, and still with equanimity.

    I am not 100% successful in this way, but when my attention is drawn out I just bring it gently back to the present moment.

      An exception to the above is when I do not belong in an activity. Then life moves me out. Example, I lost motivation to learn German when I realized we would not stay in Germany. Being present was not enough. I did not belong in the class any longer.
