Motivation. What’s the magic formula? Why is it so hard to stay motivated?
Have you ever asked yourself those questions? Does it seem like sometimes you are go, go, go and everything falls into place? You wake up and you are enthused and excited about all of your possibilities.
And other times, maybe you begin to doubt yourself. Maybe you aren’t seeing results as rapidly as you thought. Your commitment and your motivation wavers a bit. You tell yourself it shouldn’t be this hard or take this much effort.
We often waver between these two extremes, as if we are on a wavelength. All is fine and dandy when we are riding high, but when the wave is low, it’s hard to get going. This could feel like two steps forward and three steps back.
"If you are working on something that you really care about, you don't
We’ve all heard, “what’s your big WHY?”
What’s yours? Do you even have one? I continue to talk with people that have a challenge with this. They are stuck with dreams and goals of the past, striving for what they think they ‘should’ want or trying to fit their own passion into what would mesh with the family.
When things get challenging, is your ‘why’ big enough to help you overcome struggle? If not, it’s time to get busy. Let me help with a few ideas.
I have two things upcoming soon that will help.
First, I’m in the process of creating a daily planner. I’ve been using it for a while and it’s really helping me keep my big dreams in my mind, reminding me to continue to build my positive habits, and staying focused on my priorities. Of course, it will evolve with me, but I’m excited for you to try it out.
Second, I’m going to be forming a Mastermind group (or two). When I look back on the times in my life that saw my greatest achievements, I had a group of people who ‘had my back.’ They were my supporters, encouragers, and cheerleaders. They held me accountable and didn’t let me get away with excuses or victim mentality. I want that again. For me and for you.
I’m excited about both of these things. I’m excited about my future. I’m excited about what’s possible for me. I’m excited about my big dreams. I’m excited about making a bigger impact. I’m excited about living, and loving a life that matters.
How about you? Let’s do this together.
Until next time,
Have some fun, stay aware, and rock on!
