Step 1: Make a List of All the Motivation Factors
First, list all the motivating factors for your goal. Some may be noble, some totally selfish. That’s OK. You really need every single reason you have for reaching this goal. If your goal is to lose weight, list every possible reason that would motivate you to lose weight. Maybe you want to look better then your neighbor. Or show your co-workers you can do it.
For this example I am using the goal: Daily exercise by going to the gym.
My reasons for this:
Look better then ____
Fit into cute clothes
Might run into that cute trainer at the gym
Have time to myself-no interruptions
Relaxing in the steam room
Release some Anger and Tension
Be able to do Adventure Travel
Listen to my music
Get a runner high
Get my money's worth
Not be at home
Improve my mood
Step 2: Find an Image for Each Reason You Have Listed
Step 3: Putting It All Together
Then type your reason. Change the colors and font to match your reasons feeling.
Step 4: Your Finished!
The trick is: when I don’t want to go to the gym on a certain day I look at my presentation, and most of the time one of the reasons will motivate me to go. If none of them do, I take a day off. This presentation can be put on your iphone, ipod, or saved on your pc at work, or in an email for access anywhere. I hope this helps you reach your goals!!
