The Truth About Motivation
Let's face it, no one can motivate you, but yourself. That seems counter-intuitive coming from a group that creates content with guests that talk about their stories, secrets, and what motivates them, but in reality, the choice to be motivated is yours. You can hear the greatest speech or read about the amazing success secrets of others and still not be inspired.
The truth is that motivation comes from within...and what motivates and inspires an individual is different from one person to the next. But as individuals, we need motivation. We need it to keep ourselves grounded, keep pushing ourselves, and inspire us to new levels in our lives.
The key to stay on top of your game is to stay motivated. So what really motivates you? What makes you get that feeling of energy, that rush of excitement, or pushes you to "Go?" Have you ever really thought about it? If you want to keep yourself motivated, you should. Figure it out. Figure out what types of things (topics, content, messages) motivate you. Next, figure out what mediums of these items make it come alive for you. Is it video, podcasts/audio, books/reading, etc.? Once you know the answer to those two questions, you will be able put items in your life every day to keep you motivated.
For example, I am a huge fan of visualization and visualizing success, as well as taking control of your thoughts and mind, so I prefer to watch inspirational videos with very specific messages about mindset to pump me up and get me going. Each day, I work these into my daily routine like the one above (one of my favorites). Starting my day with something like this puts me in the right frame of mind, gives me that awareness that I am in control of my success, and the energizing emotions that I am looking for so that I power through at a high level.
Try this in your life. Be deliberate about what motivates you, and use the topics and mediums that best fit your style to really give you true, lasting motivation that makes a difference. Don't waste time or your energy on ones that don't!
