For pastors, bloggers, and entrepreneurs, motivation is that thing which stands between you and success. For some, it requires structure. Others, to meditate before your day. Regardless of how you obtain it, it’s needed.
Motivation is not something that you have to wait to come about. It is actually something that can be created. As the infographic below shares, there are two types of motivation, intrinsic and extrinsic motivators. Neither is better or worse and in fact, you should work on developing both.
Below are three of my favorite points on how to continue to stay motivated that you may want to try out.
- The infographic talks about perspective. In my own personal coaching, I call it normalizing the fear and ending catastrophizing. Basically, we worry about what could happen instead of doing something and seeing what will happen.
- Lacking energy could be a variety of things, including concerns of mental health, lack of sleep, an improper diet, or too many distractions. Focus is a good first step, but you may want to also evaluate your week and see what you are spending (or not spending) your time on.
- You have too much to do. You’ve over committed, you are burnt out, and you are wasting time on things that really do not matter. Instead, focus on your goals and nothing more.
