WHY DO I STRUGGLE TO STAY MOTIVATED?
The simple answer: If you’re asking this question you aren’t focussed on what it is that you’re really truly inspired and here on planet earth to do.
Often people create visions for their lives based on other peoples or society’s values rather than their own. They embark on certain journey’s because they feel it’s something they “should” do rather than because it excites the hell out of them. How many people have taken a course at college or accepted a job because external parties encouraged them to? How many of you have made an important life decision based on the values of others rather than your own? Be honest with yourself. Then ask why? Is it that you don’t believe in yourself enough to determine your own destiny? Are you seeking approval from the parties involved? Are you simply without a better option because you haven’t actually sat down and seriously gotten immense clarity around what it is that truly excites you? What are you naturally excited by? What do you always have energy for? What are you very talented at? What are you PULLED to do.
This is vastly different from what you are PUSHED to do. Push requires willpower and willpower never lasts. When you’re being pushed or pushing yourself down a certain path that is when motivation is an issue. When you’re immensely drawn to a particular thing you might have tough days but the love for the end goal PULLS you forward.
Create a life that is centered around serving others with your own unique gifts/talents. Create a goal so exciting, so attractive, something you desire so much that you have a hard time going to sleep at night and you are pulled to get up early in the morning to take it to the next level. Nowadays anything can be monetised with a little creativity and a lot of self-belief so using money as an excuse is invalid – money is not your issue creativity is. If you’re living an unfulfilling life it’s simply because you haven’t taken the time to ask the right questions (like this) and/or haven’t acted upon the answers.
Life is what we make it. So ask yourself today what it is that you’re PULLED to do.
