What Motivates You?

motivation

 

What is motivation?

According to the dictionary MOTIVATION means the following:

1. the act or an instance of motivating
2. desire to do; interest or drive
3. incentive or inducement

 

I truly believe that motivation comes from within the person.  If they want it, they will commit and go after it.

Why is commitment so important?

When you are committed in doing something, then you are driven to get it.  People can be lead towards something, that doesn’t mean they will act on it.  It could be the best thing for them, if they don’t see it, or want it, they won’t act on it.  Wanting it leads to being motivated to get it.

Questions to Get Motivated:

Do you really want it?

How badly do you want it?

Why do you want it?

What does it mean to you to get it?

Are you willing to make sacrifices to obtain it?

What are the potential obstacles?

How will you overcome them?

What will your life look like when you get it?

Are you motivated yet?  If not, what will get you motivated?  Write these questions and answers down.  Reflect on them daily.  Dream about them.  Stay positive and focused on what you want.  Your thoughts are the key to success and staying motivated.  Don’t give up when you face difficulties.  Come up with solutions to get around the obstacles and just keep going until you get it!

The 30 days GOAL challenge

Small Steps

 

Last month I put out a 30 days goal challenge in my blog post dated 11/26/15 GOALS.  In the 30 days goal challenge I talked about setting one goal and take a small step daily towards making it a reality.

If you participated in the 30 days challenge.

  • What did you accomplish by taking one small step a day towards your goal?
  • Were you successful?
  • How did it feel to get those little tasks completed?
  • Are you going to set another action plan for the next 30 days?

If so, create a new action plan and take small steps each day to work towards the goal.  If you didn’t partake last month, why not start today and see what happens.  It would be great to see responses on what everyone accomplished whether it was the last 30 days, in the next 30 days or both.

Last month I worked on getting some small tasks completed that I had been putting off.  It was a great feeling to get them completed and not to think about having to do them anymore. 🙂

To grow in life and be successful you need a purpose.  Goals assist you to achieve what you want in life.  They give you a road map towards finding confidence and obtaining your aspirations and dreams.   My wish for you is to be inspired on continually working towards achieving your goals and purpose in life; one step at a time.~ Patti

Start living the life you IMAGINED

Start living the life you IMAGINED

Back in January of 2014 I had put out a poll named “What is preventing YOU from accomplishing your dream, goal or aspirations?  Here were the results as of today:

The voters had Self-Doubt or Confidence as the number one reason.  Time or Dedication and Financial Reasons or Obligations were the number two reasons.  Why do you think Self-Doubt or Confidence was number one?

Why are people afraid to pursue their dreams or aspirations?  Is it better not to go after your dreams so you won’t fail?  Absolutely NOT!  I recall sometime back I had read an article which discussed when people were close to dying they wished they took more chances and didn’t worry about what others thought of them.  They wished they did the things they wanted instead of going through the motions.  Following the life they imagined.  (This is my interpretation of the article.)

Can you imagine how many happy and satisfied people there would be in this world, if they pursued their goals, dreams or aspirations?  There are so many people miserable because they are in a job they hate and stay for all the wrong reasons.  These unsatisfied individuals contribute on spreading the misery around.

How do you live the life you imagined?

Start with creating an action plan.  Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What do you really want in your life?
  • What do you need in your life to accomplish it?
  • What steps will you take?
  • What may prevent you from achieving it?
  • What will you do to move past those obstacles and achieve what you want?

Right now the life you’re leading is this acceptable or satisfying to you?  Or is there something more you want?  Can you imagine how different your life would be if you followed these steps to accomplish the life you imagined? ~ Patti

Day 30 of 30 day blogging challenge ~ Getting STARTED

Day 30

“The greatest amount of wasted time is the time not getting started.” Dawson Trotman

Sometimes getting started is hard but the rewards are endless.  Setting your goal, coming up with a plan of action and the most important thing is putting the plan into to action.  Getting started and motivated to take the steps is crucial to change your life and to live your dream.  Procrastination is a waste of precious time.  It doesn’t help you attain your goal or dream.  To get what you want you have to pursue it.  To pursue it starts motivating you to achieve it.

Question:  Have you been procrastinating or are you on track towards your goal and dream?

Day 23 of 30 day blogging challenge ~ Motivation comes from WITHIN!

Day 23

Motivation comes from WITHIN!

What is motivation?

According to the dictionary MOTIVATION means the following:

1. the act or an instance of motivating
2. desire to do; interest or drive
3. incentive or inducement

About this quote “motivation comes from within” this is really true.  If you do not commit to doing something you won’t do it.  Why is commitment so important?  When you have commitment to doing something you are driven to accomplish it.  People can be lead towards something however that doesn’t mean they will act on it.  It could be the best thing for them however if they don’t see it or want it they won’t act on it.  Wanting it gives motivation to go after it.  How badly do you want to change your circumstances?  Do you have the drive and purpose to change so you can have it?  What is holding you back?  Are you fearful of failure?  The biggest regret we can have is not trying.  Take a risk and be motivated to reach for what you want in life. ~ Patti

Day 18 of 30 day blogging challenge ~ Walking down the PATH of your DREAMS

Path

Day 18

Walking down the PATH of your DREAMS

We all have dreams we would like to accomplish.  Some are small steps along the path and others are large stepping stones.  As we walk down the path sometimes we stop, look around and wonder am I heading in the right direction.  Other times we keep stepping forward at a slow pace.  Then there are times we are running so fast on the path we forget to breathe.  Which path are you on?  Is the path heading towards what you really want in life or is the path going in the opposite direction?

Hiring a coach may inspire you to follow the path of your dreams.

Questions: Which direction are you going?  Is it time for a change?

Day 10 of 30 day blogging challenge ~Believe that LIFE is worth living, and your belief will help you create the fact ~ William James

One of my favorites activities is hiking.  Once you reach the top you see such beauty.  It is so worth the climb and very inspiring.  Having a dream or goal to pursue makes life worth living as well.  It gives you something to look forward to each day.  Never give up on what you want in life.  Good things take work, time and effort.  That is why it is worth creating and pursuing.  If it were easy everyone would have it.  Right?  Keep smiling and working hard for what you really want in life.~ Patti  🙂

Question:  What makes life worth living?

Day 9

Faith is the daring of the SOUL to go farther than it can see. ~ William Newton Clarke

Have faith in yourself that you will reach your goal or dream.  Just because you can’t see it right at this moment doesn’t mean you are not on the right track to achieve it.  Keep pushing forward and you will see results. ~ Patti

Self reflection question:  Spend some time reviewing your action steps towards your goal or dream.  Write down all the things you have accomplished since you started working towards your goal or dream.  Take a few minutes to celebrate those accomplishments.
