When my private clients have a consultation with me, and decide to work with me on their weight and eating issues, there’s one thing they all want.
They want and expect me to motivate them.
I smile to myself when I hear this. Because I know that no one can motivate another person. Motivation is an inside job. One that only you can do for yourself.
Someone can hold you accountable for your goals. And they can cheerlead for you. But no one can light the spark of excitement that makes you WANT to do something.
That has to come from you. From knowing what you want. And why you want it. And wanting it more than you want almost anything else. Well, maybe not more than world peace. But most everything else.
And once you know all those things, and are really clear, then you need to find a way to pay attention to what you want. Every day. Yes! Every day you need to place your attention on what you want and how you’ll go about getting it.
You can get support. You can learn new things that will aid your quest of your goal. And there are tons of tools I give my clients.
But like most of life, it’s you, baby. It’s you who needs to get and stay excited.
How do you motivate yourself?
