So now you have a goal, how do you actually achieve it?
Goals like going to the gym require a lot of motivation. Personally me, I don’t like gyms. I love writing.
You see motivation has to be internal, external motivation only gives you temporary boost in your brain. And then it slowly deteriorates.
How do you get motivated internally?
Ask yourself – how bad do you want to achieve your goal?
Do you want it bad, or just meh?
If you want to achieve your goal so bad – then you should be motivated. But if your goal is just meh, then all the world’s motivation won’t help you.
Try switching your goal to a goal which will fire you up.
You want a goal that fuels you up and lights you up. Because if reaching a goal exhausts you – that’s probably not your goal.
Think clearly about your goals, since lack of motivation is a sign of laziness. But laziness is a sign of energy saving. If you’re lazy – your body saves energy.
Your body knows internally what to do, so maybe you choose a wrong goal, a goal that’s not for you, but I don’t want to discourage you.
Maybe you are underdeveloped for your goal.
If you are underdeveloped for your goal – you will never achieve it. Sorry to break it to you.
Get up and do it, just like Nike says “just do it”.
If you force yourself to go to a gym, or do anything else. You’ll get exhausted. Achieving goals don’t require force.
Think about it – maybe it’s something wrong with your goal?
Maybe your goal is to difficult, or you’re underdeveloped for your goal.
Personally me. I wake up every day and write, it’s been 8 months I write daily on this blog, earlier I wrote elsewhere.
I can’t say that I’m very motivated. I just write, my motivation is internal. I need motivation when I want to achieve something different. But then I end up quitting, because my goal is to write this blog and not go to the gym.
It’s nothing wrong with quitting. Don’t be afraid to quit if you have to.
Just remember that if you’ll quit – you’ll never have.
Achieving something is really hard.
If you feel that you don’t have any motivation, maybe then you don’t have a goal.
You don’t need motivation to achieve something, you need motivation to achieve specific things. Motivation without a goal doesn’t work.
Get yourself a goal. And then motivation will come.
You don’t need motivation when you’re drifting. It’s easy to drift.
