It is the question at every crime scene. What is the motivation of the perpetrator?
Think about the scenes of your life. What is you motivation? It all comes back to “WHY”?
I look back through my life and I see the times where I have been more motivated and times where I have been less motivated all come back the the “WHY”.
When my “why” for living has been strong and well articulated I have been achieving and getting things done. In other times where the why has been less well articulated I have been ‘getting by’ and getting by is not a great place to stay.
If you want to be thriving in life and you are finding the motivation lacking to get started, go back and work on the what you want to achieve and why that is important to you.
Then, all of a sudden, you will find yourself motivated.
The problem is when you get started there are obstacles that get in your way.
They will either stop you or you will overcome them.
This might sound just a little bit simple but I am a fan of simple. Why make something complicated when simple is the easier way.
Excuses make things complicated.
Action is much simpler and it is much more fun.
This morning I could have stayed bed.
I got up and continued on with my plan to loose extra kilos by cycling at least half an hour 3 times a week.
By the time I got to the little hill that I like to climb I was really puffing. I parked my bike at the bottom of the path and kept on climbing on foot to see the glorious light of the sun rise on the Brindabellamountains .
I took out my iPhone to capture this and found that it had powered itself off. So as I took in this scene and just enjoyed it I noticed that just in front of me about 20 meters away was about 20 grey kangaroos.
Magnificent. My early bird reward.
Don’t give up because when you get started and keep going there are all sorts of unexpected blessings on the way.
