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!

You forced and beat your body into becoming unhealthy and incapable of doing movements that it should be able to do. A few years ago you trained it to be what it is now. It listened and it adapted.

You forced it to adapt to living off caffeine, sugar, white carb and stress. It struggled, it gave you signs that it was being forced- headaches, illnesses, crook tummies, exhaustion, moodiness, weight gain, bad skin. You didn’t listen. You kept forcing and pushing it into an unhealthy, overweight state. Now, this is your norm. Your wonderful body adapted.
It adjusted for you because that’s what you asked it to do.

DONT expect your mind and body to take to clean healthy food and exercise if you have forced it to live as above. Just like when you first forced your body into unhealthy ways you will again need to force your body to change and crave a the goodness of healthy food and exercise.

You WILL need to continue feeding your body beautiful healthy food even when every cell within you is craving its ‘drug’ (bad food) you WILL need you push through exercise every day to reach that uncomfortable point where you know it would be easier to give up. You forced your body into an unhealthy life style, you have to force your body out of one and it takes a hell of a lot more than just motivation. The main thing you need is enough love and respect for YOURSELF to do whatever it takes to change. Support, accountability, love, praise. Whatever you need to not back down and to not fall victim to yourself.

So, when you’re almost in tears because it’s so damn hard and the results aren’t showing and your muscles hurt and you feel like just giving in..

Remember…..

You forced yourself into what you have now. It is up to you to force your way out.

Your body WILL adapt.

And trust me, all your body wants from you is love and respect so it will adapt as fast as it can. Give it a chance to catch up with what you want. Make sure it trusts you and knows this is it! Change WILL happen.

Keep going and set yourself up to not back down.

You’ve got this.
