Do you want more motivation? Maybe you’re hoping there’s a little pill you can take and it’ll instantly make you motivated. The news is, there is no pill. You know there isn't, but you're still looking for that motivation.
As I have been coaching for over a decade, I continuously find people who can’t find their motivation.
Looking for motivation
It’s okay if you’re looking for it because you have goals you want to achieve. You have processes, habits, systems, and things you want to put in place. You just need a little bit of fuel…some motivation.
My husband jokes about this. He’ll be sitting on the couch, needing to get up and do something. I'll ask, “Well, what are you waiting for?” He’ll reply, “I need some courage.”
Really, what it means is, he needs some motivation. Now sadly, sometimes the motivation people turn to is food or alcohol or they don’t move forward at all.
Why is lack of motivation so hard to find? Let me share with you five reasons:
The Five Reasons Why You Need Motivation
1. It takes more energy when you don’t have motivation.
Without motivation, you won't have a desire to do it. You won't feel like doing it. Therefore, when you don't want to do something, it takes so much energy to make it happen. Do you agree? This extra energy means extra time and that will cause the next few reasons why you need motivation.
2. You miss out on opportunities.
There might be some opportunities coming your way, and you see them and then you lack the motivation to do the necessary steps because
So you end up missing out on an opportunity because you don't do it… because you didn't have the motivation to get it done.
3. You could receive a lower result.
If you are gung-ho and have high motivation, then you're probably going to not just hit your goal, but move beyond it. If you're motivated to do something, but the motivation is low, you're probably going to get lower results.
4. You do the crazy horrible P word.
Procrastination. You procrastinate. You put it off… you put it off… you put it off… you put it off… and then it's painful. It's painful every single day that you're not doing the thing that you need to be doing because you're procrastinating on it. This lack of action lowers your motivation even more.
When these four things happen, it brings us to the fifth one which is the worst part about a lack of motivation.
5. Your confidence fades.
When you're not moving forward and you're giving proof you're not completing tasks, then your confidence drops.
Do you think you're going to be any more motivated with no confidence? No.
These 5 reasons show how important it is to keep your motivation high, but how do you do it?
