Do you struggle to find the self motivation to change your life for the better? Keep reading to learn how to gain the momentum you need to take the first step to positive change.
How Self Motivation Results in Positive Action
I believe we are spiritual beings living physical lives. To make the most of this life, we have to take care of, nurture, and most importantly listen to the clues that our spirit gives us. This happens mostly through gut intuition and feelings we have.
At some point, though, we have to honor the physical side of our lives. as well. That means finding the self motivation to start taking action. To hell if conditions aren’t perfect. It doesn’t matter if the circumstance isn’t quite ideal or a person isn’t following through the way they said they would. We’ve got to take all these spiritual principles and put them into action.
Taking the First Step Toward Positive Change
The first step is exactly where a lot of people get stuck. Even those with greater awareness and knowledge can struggle. You know you want to work out, you need to get into better shape for the sake of generating more energy to work toward your mission. But, even so, that first step is often the hardest to take.
Depending on how long you were on your last cycle, getting the ball rolling can feel like pushing a boulder uphill, metaphorically speaking. You need to build the spiritual muscle that separates those who are successful from those still waiting at the gate. That spiritual muscle is momentum.
Use Momentum as Self Motivation to Change
Momentum is a force that makes it easier for someone who’s successful to do what’s right rather than what’s wrong. Momentum is the process of getting the snowball moving. The hardest part about working out is getting to the gym. Once you get there, it’s not that hard to do what you need to do.
When you’re in motion, things begin to line up. This doesn’t happen before (that goes for you, perfectionist!). When in doubt, act. Did someone else once tell you when in doubt to stop and think? No! I say thinking is dangerous to your wealth!
Most people who I know that got rich didn’t think too much. They saw a piece of property and thought, ‘This looks good. Anything structurally wrong? Environmentally? No? Good, I’ll buy it.’ Twenty years later, they’re very rich. They really planned that one out, huh?
Just as an aside, if you’re really “smart,” chances are you’re not going to be really rich. You’re going to get in your own way, a real momentum killer. Those who aren’t too “smart” are open to knowing:
- They don’t know everything they need to know to be rich
- Are okay acknowledging they will eventually learn how to be rich, even if it temporarily hurt’s their pride to know exactly how far off they were to begin with
A body in motion will remain in motion, and a body at rest will remain at rest. So, what should we want to do? Get into motion! Once you’re there, it gets easier. We already know that. Now we gotta just find the self motivation to do it.
Your turn! What in your life do you need to get started on and adjust as you go? What have you been waiting for to take action? What’s the fear holding you back from finding your momentum?
You will make it. Trust yourself. Love yourself and know that you make it all up. It’s your freaking story!
Now we want to hear from you! What are some positive momentum-changers that have worked for you to find self motivation?
