Motivation – what is it?
March 1st, 2022
How is everyone’s week going so far? I had surgery last week and am not allowed to go to work for a couple of weeks, therefore it is like ground hog’s day for me. I am getting excited about the warmer weather coming and that means I will be able to walk outside, instead of just around the house! Thank you for all the text messages and phone calls to check on me. I appreciate the care and support. I am feeling amazing and think my recovery is going well. I will know for sure when I see the doctor next week. I am excited to begin our discussion on motivation this month. Motivation is key to achieving goals.
The definition of motivation is “the reason or reasons you act or behave a certain way.” In other words, it is your “why!” Does it make sense now why I spent so much time emphasizing finding your why when setting goals? It is my hope that when you are reading my blogs you see how the themes are constantly being woven together and we are building on previously learned principles. There is a method to the madness/structure of my blog and the reason as to why I changed the structure this year. It is my hope that the information I’m providing in my blog is helping you to make small sustainable changes in your life and improving the quality of your life. Those are lofty goals, but completely attainable! Not because of me, but because of the principles.
If you have not done so already, choose your why for at least one goal this month. Write it down, on a piece of paper. Keep in mind that this will serve as a kick in the pants on days you feel like staying in bed. It needs to strike a nerve and start a fire within you. Your why will most likely create an emotional reaction for you, especially when you think of what life will be like if you stay in bed instead of chasing your goal.
