Where does motivation come from?
All life coaches and motivational experts will tell you that you need to find your why before you can excel in your chosen field.
This video explains this better than anyone could with words.
The message here is that when your reason to do something is strong enough your motivation to keep going will remain strong and achieving your goal becomes a foregone conclusion.
Remember that setting a goal is only the start of the process.
You then need to break that goal down to the the minimum steps you must do each day to reach that goal and then build the habit of taking action on those steps every day.
Good habits are hard to make and easy to live with, bad habits are easy to make and hard to live with.
Most people never really set their goals in the first place, they set a wish list of things they’d like to do, have or be, but never set a time for reaching those things or put in the work required to get there.
And we’d all be lottery or Internet millionaires.
But we’re not are we.
The main reason for that is that we haven’t set our goals correctly.
We haven’t set a timeline for achievement.
We haven’t broken the goal down to daily tasks that take us one step closer to the goal.
We haven’t developed the habit of doing that task every day until it is a process that we follow daily.
When you do that, keeping your focus on the why helps you maintain the process until you see the progress.
