Stimulate This!

Question! What is the second most valuable commodity in the US after Oil?
Answer! COFFEE!
Why do we need to be so stimulated?
I got really upset with myself a couple months ago after I had a Red Bull, and then all of a sudden I'm cleaning my apartment! Why did I need to be chemically stimulated in order to be motivated to do something?
Can't things be like Tony Robbins or even L. Ron Hubbard say, that your mind is the most incredible machine or computer ever created, but it is only as good as the data entered.

So you should be able will yourself without any aid of any foreign chemical(fully realizing that everything is chemical), but by just entering the data of Today I must clean the apartment, and keep it clean so I don't have to do a major cleanup job every month(year) or so. What happens is we(as humans) wake up in the morning and feel like crap so we feed into the computer, "I don't want to go to work today", "I don't want to clean my apartment", "I don't want to take the garbage out, take the kids to school, or clean the litter box!" Therefore we(as humans) look to stimulants, coffee, tea or something else(my latest kick is Diet Rockstar, no sugar, no carbs, and as far as I can tell no nutrasweet) to help motivate.

Now there is the real question.
Shouldn't motivation lead to stimulation and not the other way around?
