Flow and Mojo

I've been thinking about motivation .... the drive to strive. An essential ingredient to keep flow flowing, to keep seeking new challenges through a virtuous or vicious (I don't know which) feedback cycle.

In trying to get myself motivated .... even to explore flow .... I am afraid I have lost some of the desperate hunger of youth. That got me thinking, like Austin Powers, have I lost my mojo?

Which made me curious as to what mojo really was - beyond the comic symbolism it represents in Mike Myers crazy comedy.

Here is what Wikipedia has to say about mojo .... it's worthy of more consideration.
