#174 Passion, Motivation & Mindset – S2 E5 – Motivation comes from within

Have you ever wondered why so many people are used to stop doing certain things in their life on a regular basis, even though you thought that they really wanted to reach their goals?

Most of the time it is the lack of motivation. You just don’t feel like doing your workout today, continue studying, or reading the next chapter in your book. Well, we all know where this is leading to. We feel bad about ourselves, question our life’s and quit the project we were once so motivated about.

I just don’t have the time for this! It is all at least one number too big! I will continue doing it next year when I will have more time!”

This is what we love to do, procrastinating. Telling ourself a story as often as necessary, until we are finally convinced that this is the right thing to do. We stop our project and plan on restarting it somehow later on in our life’s when we will have more time.

As the year 2019 comes to an end, this process can be seen in the next couple of weeks and month, when the New Years motivation to change our life’s slowly fades away underneath the day to day business.

Well, while this is a success story for a lot of different industries, we as the individual behind the story suffer from this harder than others would even dream about. Nothing is harder than stopping something you told everyone you would do, right? Loosing your face? Not that pleasant!

Sure, but I have known all of that already! How is this supposed to help me?

Motivation needs to come from within. People tend to forget that all the time. If you feel motivated for something, ask yourself: What is it that makes me feeling motivated? And if the reason is an outside source, like showing my ex girlfriend that I am better than she thinks I am, or being able to impress others with what I have, or you simply do it out of fear, then this is not getting you anywhere. Sure, this will help you to keep the motivation high above the ground! And that is something we should all work with on a regular basis! But the original source of our motivation needs to come from within. You need to really want to do it, this thing you are working on. You need to love what you are doing! Or simply do what you love!

Hey! This is my life! I will achieve this! If the foundation of your motivation isn’t right, the project will fail somehow or another. Get this right, and you will see, you can succeed in anything!

Ok, ok! But I really need to do that, but don’t want do it! Is this supposed to be the end of the project? Do you claim that I will fail anyways?!

No! Absolutely not! If you can not find an internal motivator yet, you simply haven’t dug deep enough! Somewhere deep inside you, there can be found the origin of the idea you have in mind. You can trace back the routes, somewhere, you will find the thing that really gets you out of the bed in the morning. Of course, this is not easy to figure out, but it is possible, and actually necessary in order to succeed!

If you are interested in finding out more about that, just contact me and become a part of Project W (double you), where I will support you on your journey!

See you next time!
