Today I wanted to share with you a little tool I use for motivation. This can be applied to any area in your life. For this example we will use working out. It’s hard to go to the gym everyday if you don’t apply motivation correctly.
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
