If your answer is anything less than motivated than a person with their hair on fire running towards a lake, then you can be sure that you are not motivated enough.
Let me share with you why motivation is never the same for different people… at times, people do not want something badly enough. Their level of intensity when they are doing something is nowhere as close to say, a person who is saving his son from their burning home.
You got to tap into your deep reason why you want to do something.
Without a strong reason why, you will always perform with mediocre results and that is why this article will help you to intensify the power of your ‘why’ so that the ‘how to’ will become very small.
You Don’t Know What You Want Yet
The reason why you are not motivated enough is because you do not have strong clarity about what you really want.
Clarity breeds action. You can’t get anything done without a clear path to guide you because you don’t have a destination.
Every fiber of your body, including your mind, your thoughts and your attraction signals to the universe are scattered in different directions.
Until you find something you truly, truly want, it is like feeling something missing if you don’t have it kind of ‘want’, you will always perform in a mediocre way.
Don’t create superficial goals either. They are not effective at all because it’s not what you want – it’s what other people tell you that you should have this goal but you don’t really want it… you are just following the crowd.
Find your inner, deepest desires and you will make the first step towards extreme motivation. It is something you cannot live without. This leads to the next step:
Powerful Goals Are Emotional
Do you remember a time in your childhood that the incident is so strong and impactful that it defines you in such a life changing way? A good example could be being humiliated in front of the entire class or being bullied in such a way that you vow, “Never again will I appear weak…”
Whatever your childhood experiences are, you have to find an emotional goal that is so strong that, you will always tap into it’s source and energy when times are down.
Our emotional memory is the strongest memory of them all. Long after we have forgotten the details (or even what we ate for breakfast this morning), the emotional memory recalls incidences with vivid detail – as though it happened yesterday. Use it to fuel your goals but make sure they are positive goals that produces value and contribution (and not one that hurts others in revenge or you are proving yourself to others).
Your Excuse Is Bigger Than Your Dream
Perhaps you have found what you want. But you don’t want it bad enough that all kinds of excuses come up.
The law of attraction is a very powerful thing. You subconsciously attract everything but the thing you really want and that is why something always comes up to deter you from your real goal.
Here’s an example – You vow to spend time with your son, but somehow, that sudden company meeting or business trip always takes precedence over time with your son.
Or how about manifesting a soul mate? If you are feeling inadequate about being in a relationship, somehow something will always pop up as a personal flaw and you do not like what you see at the end of the relationship.
The truth is, excuses will always seem bigger if your dream is too small. You either have excuses or excellence. Nothing in between.
Do you know what makes Olympic athletes wake up early on a frozen cold morning just to get an exercise?
Make no mistake about it. They want the Gold medal… and they want it real bad so that it supersedes every mood that causes them to choose otherwise.
If you do not feel like doing something, then you are really asking the wrong question.
You should note that our feelings changes like the weather. At any given time, the combination of inadequate sleep, arguments with loved ones or even the food we ate could affect us so greatly that we choose to do what we ‘feel’ like versus what we truly want.
Once again, when your ‘why’ is really big, you will not consider how hard it is to do something – you will do it even if you don’t ‘feel’ like it and that is what separates the true winners from the wannabes.
