Are you lacking motivation in your life? Struggling with laziness and a lack of purpose? Do you keep putting off your dreams until tomorrow or the next day?
If so, you’re not alone. So many people worldwide suffer from a lack of motivation and enthusiasm.
Motivation rarely lasts but is necessary to help you get started on your goals. It helps build the momentum to get you to take massive action toward your goals and dreams.
But why does motivation come and go from so many peoples lives in the first place?
I think there are five main reasons people lose motivation and enthusiasm toward their goals.
1. Fear of Failure
Fear of failure is a hard thing for most people to overcome. It robs so many people of ever seeing a goal or project through the finish line.
The sooner you realize that failure is part of the process, the sooner you can start taking action!
2. The Habit of Laziness
Another reason people don’t continue to take action is pure laziness. Having the wrong habits is a top reason that so many people quit too soon.
3. The Habit of Procrastination
Like laziness, procrastination is a habit. The sooner you can fix your little habits, the sooner you will have more motivation on a regular basis.
4. Fear of Judgement From Others
Similar to fear of failure, people don’t want to feel judged by others. But it ’s a bad reason to not go after your hope and dreams.
If you want something great in life, prepare to be judged and learn to quit caring about the opinion of others. All that matters is how you feel about yourself.
5. Lack of Belief
If you don’t believe, if you don’t see it happening, then it probably never will. Self-belief is so important in turning your dreams into reality.
So how do you overcome these five things holding you back?
1. Create Winning Habits
Remember, how you do anything is how you do everything. If you say you’re going to wake up at 5 am each day but hit snooze until 6 am you’re setting yourself up for failure.
Create winning habits by keeping the promises you make to yourself. Turn off the TV at night, exercise each morning, declutter your house.
All these little things will help you build the habits of success.
2. Change Your Mindset
Achieving greatness is impossible with a loser mindset. If you think your abilities are fixed, you’ll never be able to push past the lazy days. You need to acquire a growth mindset by reading, watching inspirational content, and
3. Start a Morning Routine
You need to make time for your goals. They won’t come to life if you don’t review them on a regular basis. As Ed Mylett said, “Your obsessions become your possessions.”
Spend time each morning obsessing over what you are trying to achieve. This will program your mind to stay focused on the goal and help push through fear and doubt on the bad days.
4. Work on Yourself
To stay motivated, you need to dig deep within yourself and find out what you’re truly made of. Success isn’t going to happen unless you love yourself and know your own strengths and weaknesses.
Get quiet with meditation or journaling to learn about yourself. The more you can use your strengths, the more motivated you’ll stay in life.
5. Take Massive Action
Imperfect action is better than sitting around planning. Go out and fail your way to success. Take massive action, even if it feels awkward or uncomfortable, to start building momentum toward your dreams.
Hopefully, you can learn from these tips and get started today. Quit waiting until tomorrow to turn your dreams into reality.
