We are motivated simply when we:
1. perceive something as important, and
2. have the confidence in ourselves that we can actually achieve it.
If you’re struggling with the motivation to move more or eat better, ask yourself: why does this matter to me? If I do this, how will my life be different in 3 months time?
Find something that is important to you. Something that truly excites and inspires. Once you’ve got it and it feels right, write it down and tell your world.
Next, honestly ask yourself: on a scale of 1 to 10, how confident am I that I can actually do this?
If confidence is lacking, how can you change that? How can you change the starting line so that you truly believe you’re capable of achieving it?
Sometimes success is not about finishing. It’s about starting. And you’ll be surprised what you’re capable of once you find yourself there.
