Motivation is something we all strive to have, but can also be one of those feelings that’s hard to keep. Whether we’re attempting to reach a new fitness goal or trying to stay motivated in our role at work, sometimes that motivation just isn’t there. You feel motivated for a while – you’ll listen to podcasts, read books, keep yourself accountable – but then it’s lost. You feel so much energy at the start, then feel yourself slowly losing that inspiration. Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

The key to success is having that continuous motivation to keep going and reach your goals. It’s finding what works for you to keep that momentum for the long term, not just the short term. Part of the reason why people set goals and fail is because they’re too hard on themselves. They set unrealistic and unattainable goals, making it difficult to achieve.

The thing about motivation is that it doesn’t have to be hard. The good news is, you can always get it back. The goal is to develop the right outlook and mindset that can help you long-term. If you want to stay motivated, you need to discover your why. You need to find out what it is that is going to drive you closer to reaching your goals. Don’t focus too much on what it is you want to achieve, but more so how you want it to make you feel. 

“Do it, and then you will feel motivated to do it.” – Zig Ziglar

Maybe you feel like you lack purpose in your life, or maybe you’re bored with your lifestyle and routines and need something to shake it up and get that motivation back. Whatever it is, making the effort to make a change is the first step towards achieving what you want in life.

I think we’ve all been hypnotized. Hypnotized by movies, books, and stories that we’ve heard growing up as children.

All of these stories can provide a great source of inspiration, but as you grow up, you start to realize reality isn’t necessarily the same. When life doesn’t go right, goals don’t get accomplished, you can’t overcome a bad habit, or when you feel stuck in life – no genie magically comes out of a lamp to save you. (more…)
