Motivation and consistency is key
We all need external motivation. It doesn’t matter what that external motivation is, we all create a goal or an initial drive that permeates into motivation. Some individuals need it more than others, and that is perfectly fine, but I feel, acknowledging that motivation holds more merit than who needs it more or less is important.
In my profession, I’ve experienced different degrees of what levels of motivation individuals need in all aspects of their training and personal life. It’s imperative to understand that everyone is different. Most of us share common spaces at work, play etc. — but we forget that we are all different. What creates drive for one person might seem irrelevant to another and vice-versa.
Have you ever had something to do and all of a sudden there is this burst of motivation that inspired you to get it done? And not only to get it done, but take it on in impressive fashion?
Why can’t we put that burst of inspiration towards other aspects of our lives? Personally, I feel that we do an amazing job of talking ourselves out of initiating or completing a task, than we do taking time to do a task.
We create all these fail features in our thinking when we’re motivated to do something. This won’t work because of that; or if I start this now I won’t be able to finish in time; or there’s not enough time in the day to get these things done. Now the latter is my favorite. We all know if there were more time in the day you would find everything else to do, rather than what you’re putting off.
It’s so easy to put of what our true potential should be. We all are victims of this. Whether it’s something minute or massive, we all have done things to shut down motivation towards a goal.
Surrounding yourself with individuals that tap into their motivation should be apart of your lifestyle. This way, you become conditioned to understanding your goal implementation and the tasks that you have at hand. Essentially, helping those around you will become second nature and you’ll realize how positively consistent life and outcomes can become.
It’s a classic cliché — but consistency is key. I’ve always said that you can consistently do something that’s going to make you fail, or you can consistently do something that’s going to make you succeed. The choice is simply on the individual.
Allow your positive motivation to uplift your shortcomings in your life. By doing so, you help create positive outcomes towards situations — whether it’s fitness, lifestyle or holistically.
