That makes complete sense and is a very true statement.
Motivation can be pretty much anything. Do you have goals? Is there something you want to achieve later in life? Maybe a career or something you want to do?
Having goals and priorities can give you the motivation for pretty much anything. If you think, 'if I want to achieve or do this, I'll have to stop cutting' and if you want the certain thing or to achieve something, it can motivate you to stop cutting. It all depends how bad you want this certain thing and how much you're willing to do for it.
Decide what you want out of life and set goals and decide what changes you need to make to get there.
