Most everyone would be successful in every aspect of their life if staying motivated wasn’t an issue. In fact, one of the top reasons people don’t do what they initially set out to do is Lack of motivation.
Let’s face it, change is hard if you’re not inclined to do so, and it doesn’t matter what anyone says or does, lack of motivation is all up to you. You have to make a decision and take action.
But, how do you overcome lack of motivation?
Tony Robbins is one of those people, who, despite his beginnings taught himself to stay motivated, and has gone on to make millions of dollars and become one of the most influential speakers and success educators in the world.
But How Do You Change Lack of Motivation?
Well it turns out, change could be just a millimeter away… watch.
A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided. – Tony Robbins
Decision & Actions Overcome Lack of Motivation
I know it sounds like a lot of soapbox preaching so I’ll share with you something personal that makes this true for me. One of the things I’ve had to learn is that little changes here and there is what made the biggest differences in my life.
At the end of last year, I was one of those people who were laid off and the job that would have paid me almost $80k a year if it lasted, quickly dried up. Budget cuts, downsizing, and re-allocation were all fancy words I heard for saying ‘you’re fired.’
I started the year of 2012 three months in debt and trust me. Staying motivated was not an easy thing, but when it came down to it, I made a decision and took action to change things. Making a decision and moving on faith with action is what yielded the desired results for me.
Busting Lack of Motivation Wasn’t Easy For Me
Probably the hardest times to stay motivated were those times where nobody really thought I could do it. Have you ever felt like your own friends and family turned on you? That doubt and overwhelming pressure to meet their needs, compounded by knowing that somehow you failed them is hard.
It’s a hard thing to shake off, but making the decision to change and taking action really is the only way to defeat the lack of motivation we all experience from time to time.
What made it easier was surrounding myself with people who went through the same things that I did. I know this sounds like the intro to an A.A. meeting but seeing others persevere by taking massive action and following through on a decision, then seeing the results only re-enforced that level of belief to keep going.
Whatever you’re going through or have gone through, if you’re having trouble with lack of motivation, I would pass on the same advice I took. That is, make a decision and Take Massive Action.
Find that “millimeter” or two you need to tweak. Do it and get the results you want and deserve. Just like Tony did, just like I did, and as you’ll see, just as my team did.
… and when you make the decision to be a part of our team, you’ll see the results as well.
