Do you know your motivation?
Whatever you want to achieve in life, whether it is losing weight or starting a new project, it is really helpful to know your motivation;
Why do you want to do this?
Is it that you really want to do it or do you think you "should" be doing it? "Shoulds" and "have-tos" are not really what you are looking for. Innocently, there are lots of judgements about the self attached to them. What you are looking for is what you really want to do. Revisiting this want is what makes you successful in whatever it is you want to achieve.
What motivates you to do something can be different things; for example, to lose weight because you want to feel good, to feel fit and healthy, or increase your energy levels.
Maybe you want to start a new project or want to earn some more money to buy a new car, a house or go on holiday.
Maybe like me, you would like to empower people about their health and well-being, to help them realise that everything they need is already there!
I love it when I see my clients start to feel better in themselves!
But there are times we don’t feel motivated at all, why is that?
Simply, because our mind is busy.
For example, now with the second lockdown in place we feel frustrated, overwhelmed and maybe our routine has completely changed again. We have a great deal of thinking going on.
We may have beliefs about ourselves that we haven’t recognised;
I cannot possibly do this.
I do not have enough willpower.
I am not strong enough.
I have never succeeded before so I’ll probably fail again.
All this can seem to block our path to what we'd really like to achieve.
We innocently put the blame onto outside circumstances such as the lockdown or other situations in our life. And that is ok! Sometimes it is simply not the time to start a new project, but other times we are just trying to justify not doing it. The question is then; do I really want to start this new project, or is it that I think I should? That’s why I want to be clear about my motivation.
Why do I want to lose weight?
Why do I want to start this new project?
The more clearly I am able to hear my objections and see the beliefs I have innocently created over time and space, the less I have to listen to them. Unnecessary thinking falls away; I feel life is leading me in some way.
I feel clear, motivated and able to be successful in whatever I want to achieve.
