In the Arduino app paste in this code:

#include "rgb_lcd.h"


rgb_lcd lcd;

const int buttonPin = 2;

void setup() { lcd.begin(16, 2); pinMode(buttonPin, INPUT); } int colorR = 25; int colorG = 255; int colorB = 100; void loop() { lcd.setRGB(colorR, colorG, colorB); lcd.clear(); int buttonState = digitalRead(buttonPin); if (buttonState == HIGH) { lcd.write("You can do it!"); int colorG = 255; int colorR = 0; } else { lcd.write("Need motivation?"); int colorR = 255; int colorG = 0; } delay(100); }
