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.

As leaders, we want to grow a business, advance in a career, have better relationships, and create freedom and margin to spend our time doing whatever we want. (more…)

When you get home from work, what’s the first thing you want to do? Is it to start exercising? Is it work on a new side-hustle? Or is it mastering a brand new musical instrument? I’d actually bet cash that you do NOT want to do a single one of those things. In fact, it’s very likely you want to do the opposite instead – and that’s to slip into your house clothes, hop into a comfy chair, and dive into an exciting show on Netflix or browse social media.
