Someone sent me a message talking about their lack of motivation. It really got me thinking and I thought what a great topic to blog about 🙂
How do we stay motivated? When we have all these external things coming at us all the time, How do we stay focused? How do we always try to be a beacon of light and positivity for the others around us?
I think what it boils down to is Our Choices.
First thing is…You have a choice of what you are going to let affect you. You can control a lot of those choices by what you allow to go in. There is a lot of negativity out there. It’s important that you try and circumvent that negativity…one being the news. The media sensationalizes negativity, so if it is affecting your focus and motivation…turn it off. Maybe it’s certain friend that is an energy sucker. Sometimes space is needed to clear out that negativity. Make choices for yourself that allow motivation to flow easily.
Second thing… Staying Positive. I know we talk about this a lot, but that’s because we all need to be reminded of it. Positivity feeds into Motivation. The one thing you have to concentrate on more than anything else is… Your WHY. It’s as simple as that. WHY do you get up every day dedicated to your business? WHY do you get up every day and exercise? Why do you get up every day and be conscientious about what you are eating? WHY do you feed your mind with positivity make time to read every day? WHY are you doing what you’re doing? Why do you want this so bad?
I think that when you set that standard for yourself and you remind yourself of your WHY…you find your motivation.
Remember this: What comes out of your mouth, is what you put in your head. Focus on what your motivation is internally. When you do that it intrinsically shines outwards!
- Have that Big WHY in front of you every day
- Have a mantra that you say every day
- Read something motivation when you get up
- Set your tone and intentions for the day #AttitudeOfGratitude
- Reach out to someone you know can inspire you
All that being said…It’s ok to feel unmotivated once in awhile. Except it, Bless it, and live in that space. Take a break and regroup and reground yourself. Take that time to breathe and remember your WHY.
Stay Positive 🙂
