We are all motivated at some point in our lives. We are all motivated to lose weight, to become wealthy, to get a job, to get that promotion, to be successful, healthy and happy. Motivation is merely what we want and not nearly as important as ‘what I am willing to do to get it’ My problem was more about ‘what I didn’t want’. I didn’t want to be so sick and tired all the time. I didn’t want to feel so sad and depressed. I didn’t want to live a mediocre life any longer and just be okay. I didn’t want to feel like a failure any longer. So yes, I have tried the magic pills and teas and nuts – because I wanted the easy way out. I ‘wanted’ so badly. I was more than motivated…but wasn’t willing to work for it. It’s like studying for the exams, desperately wanting an A and only reading through a textbook without really putting in the time and effort.
I am glad all those attempts failed and got me to the point where I had no choice but to put in the work- and boy, is it worth it. The beauty is, it doesn’t get easier, you just become stronger.
So, what are you willing to do to achieve your goal? You know you have it in you. Honestly, I didn’t know I had it in me when I started. But today, I’m telling you YOU DO!
