Episode 158: Getting Motivated After January 1st

Do you think motivation is like magic? You get it and then you magically can do whatever you said you would do because you are officially ‘motivated’?

Motivated Podcast 158

The thing is, motivation is an inside job. You might be inspired by listening to me, but that inspiration comes from your thoughts about what I’m saying.

So, here are some important things to take away from this episode:

  • Motivation is created by you.
  • It’s what helps you move toward your goals.
  • It feels inspiring.
  • Motivation doesn’t last!
  • It needs to be refreshed periodically.
  • And… the more you understand what it is and how it’s created, the easier it is to help it happen.

Let’s go get motivated!

Why You Need To Learn To Motivate Yourself

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015


Motivate yourself

When my private clients had a consultation with me, and decided to work with me on their weight and eating issues, there’s one thing they all wanted.

They wanted and expected me to motivate them.

I smiled to myself when I heard this. Because I knew 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?
