This Is What You Should Do When Your Motivation Is Gone

We both know how life feels when you’re motivated, you feel unstoppable like you can do anything and make anything happen. What makes you feel motivated when you start something isn’t always the same thing that will motivate you in the future.

The problem is when people, who don’t read blogs like this, end up just accepting a lack of motivation as their reality and using it as their EXCUSE to avoid taking action and going after their destiny.

If following your destiny and fulfilling your purpose was easy, everyone would do it, however, it takes a different type of person to pursue their destiny, a person that reads blogs like this…

 

This blog is for 2 types of people:

1. You are feeling motivated but want to make sure you keep the consistency of your results.

2. You are feeling a lack of motivation and you know that maintaining your drive will take your life to the next level.

The tools I’m going to share with you are what I have used to create an amazing relationship with my wife, build a 7 figure business, and transform my health, from being 60 lbs overweight to having abs for 8 years straight.

Implementing these actions and habits into your life cultivates success in your life without making you feel like you’re using all your willpower, all the time.

I believe commitment and motivation go hand in hand. Many people are motivated but they aren’t committed to their dreams, this is why they lack results. Take a Navy Seal for example, he can show up to day 1 of training super motivated, but what happens when he’s weeks deep into the most rigorous exercises?

 

Is it only the motivated ones that continue on or is it the ones who are committed?

You got it, the committed. But then what happens shortly after they graduate and get their trident?

The feeling of motivation comes back with a greater measure because they did it, they experienced that first taste of success as a result of their commitment.

Motivation is a great tool. If we had to live being committed to our cause and purpose without motivation we wouldn’t have as much passion. Using these two tools together is how the most successful people experience the compounding effect of motivation. T

hey make a decision when they are motivated and choose to stay committed to their decision.
Commitment is doing what you said you were going to do, long after the feeling has passed.

“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford

Commitment is an unbreakable promise and choice you make, it is 100% up to you, whether you feel like it tomorrow or not. Commitment is giving the decisions you make today long-standing integrity, it’s relying on that commitment to withstand even when you want to take a break or feel overwhelmed, it’s pushing through.

What made you feel motivated in the past?

Sometimes it’s going back into your past and seeing what worked before. You can use previous motivation as an anchor, pulling yourself back into that frame of mind at any time. Being able to control your emotions and mindset is a huge key to being successful.

It’s important to know what triggers your motivation and what it takes to get you back into that state of mind. An example is similar to me when I go golfing, if I’m at the driving range practicing sometimes I will get lazy and my hits will get worse and worse.

But when I go out on the course, when I know it counts, I feel myself get into the zone where I have a routine that I aim to execute.

I can access that “zone” on the range as well and anchor that feeling whenever I need it. Remember when you felt motivated or full of energy, what can you do to bring back that feeling?

How can you anchor yourself so that when you think of it, all your motivation comes back and pulls you into the zone?

 

You adapt to your environment

The #1 thing lacking for most people is in their environment. You will always adapt to your environment and you will always be a product of your five closest friends. Think about someone who gets into the gym every day.

They work out because their actions and environment give them the opportunity to be in change of themselves. Now apply it to yourself, if you are in an environment without any pressure or opportunities, it’s very likely that will affect your motivation.

Look at the five people closest to you. What is their motivation level? What is their success level in health, business and relationships?

It’s like a black hole sucking you in, it could be extremely positive or detrimental to your success. You are either dragging dead weight, an equivalent of the toxicity surrounding you, or you’re being dragged and catapulted into success, prompted to pursue your destiny by the people who surround you.

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

motivation

Look at network marketing companies, they know that if they create local, regional, and national events they can place people in an environment to change and learn, and there are often enough events that the people showing up to all of them will stay consistent and make themselves and the company profitable.

You replicate this for yourself every day by surrounding yourself with the best people to become the best. In surrounding yourself with those who are motivated that motivation will rub off on you.

Next time your motivation isn’t there in your business or even your health, remember what this blog taught you.
