The only motivation is desire.
When people are operating on a lack of energy (mental, physical, spiritual),
their desires are far more short term.
Somewhere they realize they just don't have the energy to pursue
larger more complex tasks, and end up flowing down the path of least resistance.
When people have more energy they don't feel sick, tired, get headaches or have brain fog.
Here were causes for my lack of energy.
2. no exercise on a regular basis
3. bad sleep schedule
4. difficult environment (messy, not oriented towards what I want to accomplish, distractions)
ejaculation was the biggest piece of the puzzle for me.
When I tried no fap, I certainly had a much higher level of energy,
however I was spending all my energy resisting sexual urges.
Then I looked into non ejaculatory orgasm, however everything I read online
was a mechanical stopping of the semen through muscular tension.
This didn't work very well at all for me, it was super hit and miss,
and the arousal got so intense I couldn't stand it and usually had to ejaculate right after.
Instead of this you stimulate the energy and then recirculate it throughout the body,
this worked very well and the intense arousal gets transmuted and you feel energized.
