How to Get Motivated

Before you read on, I encourage you to watch and or listen to this video below.

Motivation is not necessarily something that can be taught or taught at all for that matter. People are motivated by different things, theres no single formula that works for everyone. Whether you watched and or listened to the video above, you either felt something or you didnt. Thats completely fine because like I said, people are motivated by different aspects of life.

What motivates you to workout and go to the gym might differ from something that motivates you to go to work.

We are privileged to live in a world full of inspirations, but not everyones stories speaks to us. Thats not because we are heartless human beings, rather we are driven by different things.

You are either motivated or discouraged by doubters, people telling you that you cant do something. Doubters- theyre not always verbal. Keep in mind that a lot more things are said through silence and absence.

The nice thing about having doubters is they dare you to try and achieve your goals. Its in you to prove them wrong, its just the matter of taking the first step.

Proving your doubters wrong is one way to get motivated but, proving to yourself that you can is the ultimate goal. The journey to achieving your goals may start out with just wanting to prove people wrong, but somewhere along the way it should shift to doing it for you.

Taking the first step is where most people struggle, they cant seem to find the motivation to do whatever it is they want to do. To start, ask yourself these questions: What is it that I want? What is it that I love to do? What am I most passionate about? What do I want to get out of it? What is my definition of success? How can I achieve my goals?

Write down your goals with relevance to your passion. The next thing is to figure out a way to execute. How can I achieve my goals? A process that has always helped me is goals within goals; breaking down the ultimate goal into smaller goals. The journey can get fairly overwhelming when youre looking at the big picture.

So, break it down into pieces.

Think of life as a giant puzzle, your goals are the pieces and the completed puzzle is your ultimate goal (your dream). Its not going to be easy. Its going to be frustrating and upsetting. Its going to be filled with disappointments, happiness, and you will feel a strong urge to quit.

So many people out there have left so many puzzles incomplete but today, thats NOT going to be you.

Puzzle- a mess at the start, but beautiful in the end, very much like life.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

If you ever feel like giving up, just stop and walk away for a little bit. Yes, there is a difference between stopping and giving up. My definition of stopping is, I will be back, and my definition of giving up is I am not coming back.





You have probably seen this quote a few hundred times in your life already. But, what does it really mean? What does it mean to never give up? Personally, not giving up is not letting yourself down. Before I do anything Ill often ask myself one question and it is, will I be disappointed in myself?, never mind how disappointed the people around me will be. The decision will always be based on how I feel.

The execution phase, answering the how is tough, theres a lot of trial and error. Like, trying a piece of the puzzle that seems to fit, but in the end it doesnt belong. You have to keep trying to find the right pieces.

You will have many puzzles to complete in your lifetime, youll probably find yourself working on 2, 3 or more at a time. Never leave a puzzle incomplete, you started it for a reason.

Start looking for excuses of why you CAN instead of why you cant. Attitude is everything. A positive attitude will lead to positive results. Surround yourself with positivity and with people who genuinely care.

Dont expect easy. Expect everything, but easy. Start your journey with an open mind and most of all enjoy what you do. No matter how far along you are in your journey, never forget to enjoy.

Dream big or dont dream at all.

Always remember one thing, let others help you complete your puzzle, but never let them complete it for you.
