It's pretty tough to talk yourself into doing anything if you aren't motivated. I know. I've been there. But I've got you covered today with 8 ways to get motivated so you can stop THINKING about what you want & starting GETTING it.
For most of my life I desperately wanted to lose weight, I hated my body, had no energy and was tired of trying and failing but it seemed like I wasn't motivated enough to do the work.
I know I'm not alone. I get emails every single day like this one:
I look up recipes, buy groceries, fail at making them (usually turns out bland and nothing like the recipe) and don't meal prep so I end up eating out for every meal. I still hate the way I look and feel and constantly feel defeated. How do I change or overcome apathy? No idea.
I'll be honest, though: I love getting emails like that. I love it because they're asking for help, they want to make a change and I know I can help. I'm thrilled that they've opened the door for me to nudge them in the right direction.
Before we dive into the 8 ways to get motivated, I need to establish the fact that most people really don't understand what motivation is or how to create it.
It's a bit of a paradox. Most people think, "I'm not taking action because I'm not motivated."
The reality of motivation is close, but opposite: you aren't motivated because you aren't taking action.
