Motivation and why you have none!
“Why do I start highly motivated but loose it quickly?”
MOST people who set exciting new years resolutions will have broken their intentions and let their goals slide by the 15th of January.
15 days and they are back to doing what they have always done to get what they’ve always got. REALLY these should be NY wishes rather than goals or Intensions.
The thing is, people decide, enough is enough. I’m going to change this and that. They then sit back and ‘wish’ it would happen. They don’t consciously think this of course. They do ‘try’. They try for 15 days and then their normal patterns that we repeat in our lives over and over again since we were about 2 years old come back just like every other time we attempted change.
For the people who do go further than 15 days or those that even get to their goals, why do they still loose motivation and stuff it all up? This can usually be summed up in one simple word – FEAR.
– Afraid of upsetting people
– Afraid of loosing people close to them
– Afraid of what it will change
– Afraid of failing itself
If you are someone who has felt fear from achievement or fear for trying then I would want to look at your self belief – WHY are you not backing yourself. Why are these thoughts in control of you?
I don’t feel motivated all the time. No way, there are many, many days where I feel like throwing in the towel on everything I’m creating. What gets me through this? What’s my secret to keep going and the secret of my high achieving clients?
Everyday I set clear intentions about what I want. My 2016 goals are written in the front of my diary that I look at everyday. I write at 5.30-6.00am everyday about what I’m going to do that day, I clearly set my intensions and I also write about what I’m feeling and why.
This sets me up well. From there I listen to something motivating. Type into YouTube Inspiration and you’ll be flooded with goodness.
I exercise everyday to energise my body and build physical strength and resilience.
Lastly and the one that I think has been forgotten by many including myself in the past is DISCIPLINE.
On the days you don’t feel like it YOU DO IT ANYWAY.
DO WHAT EVER YOU HAVE TO DO EVERYDAY TO CLIMB THE LADDER TO YOUR ULTIMATE GOALS.
Here’s the thing. To change you have to become the person that would get the results you are after. I’m not saying change who you are I’m saying remove the fog that keeps you stuck and unleash who you naturally feel you are or practice daily who you want to be until it sticks.
Life’s to short to be stuck in ways that don’t serve you. Decide and do it!
