3 Steps to Maintaining Motivation

white peacock

I loved watching this peacock strut his stuff. Perfect for maintaining motivation.

In my last post I talked about the benefits of having clarity. If you missed it, you can read it here: BENEFITS OF CLARITY. In that post, I promised to talk about maintaining motivation and momentum. Why? Because when you’re clear about what you want and start making progress towards it, obstacles will come. They show up in the form of limiting beliefs, remarks by people of influence in your life, and life events. To live the life you really want to live, you have to be able to keep going despite what’s going on in your life.So, how do you do it? Here are some things you can do to keep motivated to have the life you really want.

3 Steps to Take for Maintaining Motivation to Live The Life You Really Want:

  1. Regroup and ask if what you’re going after is still what you want.
    This one can be tough to do, especially if you’ve been pursuing something for a long time. However, it may be exactly what’s needed for maintaining motivation.
  2. Create a written motivation plan. 
    This plan should include music you listen to that perks you up, motivational videos/podcasts, and activities that you enjoy. When your motivation starts to dwindle grab your list and do some of the things on there whether you want to or not.
  3. Surround yourself with people who are taking consistent action in their lives.
    The company you keep is so important. There’s a saying that goes “You lay down with dogs, you get up with fleas.” This saying is so true. You may think who you surround yourself with isn’t affecting you but it is. Maintaining motivation is going to require that you choose your companions wisely.

It’s important to maintain your momentum by staying motivated if you are going to live the life you really want. When you’re not motivated you more than likely won’t take action. Which of the 3 steps will you be implementing? I’m offering a complimentary conversation to help you with maintaining motivation to have the life you really desire. Schedule your call HERE.

Lesson learned from FAU football

This is going to be quick. The 2016 college football season ended with Florida Atlantic University (FAU) having a record of 3-9 overall and 2-6 in their conference (espn.com). For the 2017 season they hired a new coach, the former offensive coordinator at University of Alabama, Lane Kiffin. To say the team has been transformed is an understatement. Lane Kiffin has turned a team with years of having a losing record, to a winning team. Incredible! Why am I even talking about football and coaching on my blog? I wanted you to see what a difference good coaching and good mentoring can make.

I am so proud of FAU football and grateful that I get to watch this transformation happen. It has inspired me so much. The lesson I learned from FAU football is that we all have so much potential in us and sometimes all it takes is having the right people in our lives or being in the right environment to pull it out of us. Be great.

A Course In Personal Development

Can you relate to setting yourself up for success in your business and life and still not getting the results you want? You purchased the course, enrolled in the coaching program, have an accountability buddy, you even read some books and it still wasn’t enough to move you to action so that you could have the results you were hoping for. More clients in your business, more money, more guilt-free time with your loved ones, and momentum in your life. The results you wanted didn’t happen because success is about so much more than having the right tools and systems in place.

For years I struggled with this exact thing. I knew so much and had so much to share, so much potential but something was getting in the way of me realizing that potential. I read all the books, took the courses, prayed but I was still stuck in my life. I realized that nothing was going to change until I did. I was what was missing. I needed to play a much more significant role in actualizing my potential. I needed to take bold steps towards what I wanted in my life. One day I made the decision to do things differently and things started to change.

Since that day I have helped thousands of entrepreneurs and would be entrepreneurs identify what it is they really want from life and determine if the way they are living life is in alignment with what they want. These thousands of conversations have made me realize one thing, we are the ones standing in our own way and any time we decide that we are ready for change we can change. Any area in your life where you want transformation is really about your personal development.

Become aware of who you really are and what you really want and so much is possible.

Distractions

Do you find it hard to stay focused? Focus is easy when you’re doing what you know deep in your gut that you should be doing. 

If what you’re doing is draining you, making you feel scattered, filling you with dread ask some questions. It may be time to let go of some things and change direction. 

What are you letting go of?

I Hate My Life

Have you whispered these words before? I know that I have whispered some variation of them more than once. It wasn’t that I hated my life. I didn’t like the way that I was living my life but I wasn’t doing anything about it. That’s what I hated. The inaction is where my frustration lie.

If I was so frustrated with the way that I was living my life why wasn’t I doing anything about it? Good question. After all, if you don’t like the direction you’re headed change paths right?  Easier said than done. You see, I struggled with the following:

1. I did not know what I wanted my life to look like? Because I had not figured out what I wanted my life to look like I didn’t know which path to take.

2. I didn’t know where to start. I didn’t know what I wanted my life to look like and I didn’t know how to figure it out. Can you imagine how frustrated I was?

3. I wanted someone or something (a book an article) to give me a plan to follow. I knew that if I could find a book or an article or someone to show me what to do I could figure it all out. I needed a plan for figuring out what I wanted my life to look like.

Well, I found out that everything that I needed was available to me. However, it was up to me to use them. In order to use them I had to:

1. Make a decision. This sounds so simple but it is one of the hardest things to do. It wasn’t until I made the decision to change the path that I was on that I started to see things differently. It’s one thing to say that you don’t like the path that you are on, but until you make a decision that you’ve had enough of that path and are ready for something else, your mantra will remain the same, “I hate my life.”

2. Get clear on what I wanted my life to look like. Once I made the decision that I was ready to change the way that I was living my life I needed to figure out what type of life I wanted to live. I have to tell you, the only one who knows the type of life that you want to live is YOU. Yup, that’s right. You are going to have to have to take time and ask yourself some questions and answer them too. This can be fun. Answer questions like what do I want to have, what do I want to do, what type of person do I want to be, what do I want to learn, what do I like?

3. Take consistent action. Once I had an idea of what I wanted my life to look like I had a starting point. I chose something from my list and did what I could towards making it a reality. Sometimes the step I took was as simple as buying a book or borrowing one. The important thing was that I took action. No matter how small, you have to do something. Action causes momentum to build and momentum is what you will need to make the life that you want a reality.

So, if you’ve been saying “I hate my life” more than you care to admit I want to encourage you to do the following: make a decision, figure out what you want your life to look like, and take consistent action to make that life yours.

Let me know how much fun you’ve had mapping out your new life 🙂
