Often our clients come to us frustrated and feeling like a failure because they don't have the motivation or drive to begin their lifestyle change. 🙁
They just can't seem to get started on their health journey to reverse prediabetes, lose the weight, and regain their energy.
👊MOTIVATION is a powerful force that drives us to achieve our goals and aspirations.
It can push us to take action and make positive changes in our lives.
👉BUT what happens when we don’t feel motivated❓
👉How do we push ourselves to take action even when we don’t feel like it❓
One key idea we explain is that oftentimes, we need to take ACTION and see results before we can feel MOTIVATED. 👀
It’s a classic catch-22: we need the motivation → to take action, but we also need to take action → to feel motivated.
Think about it this way. When you’re feeling unmotivated, it can be hard to find the energy to start a new project or even complete a small task.
BUT... once you start working on something, even if it’s just for a few minutes, you begin to see progress, and you might even get into a flow state.
As you continue to work, the progress becomes more and more visible, and suddenly, you start to feel motivated. 💯
This is because our brains are wired to respond positively to progress. 🧠👍
When we see that we’re making progress, we feel a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. This positive feedback loop helps to build momentum and keep us going.🙋♂️
⭐So, the next time you find yourself feeling unmotivated, try taking small actions toward your goal.
⭐Even if you don’t feel like it, push yourself to work for just a few minutes.
⭐Once you start to see progress, you’ll begin to feel motivated. Remember, progress is the key to MOTIVATION.
⭐Setting small achievable goals at the start can help you to see progress and feel MOTIVATED.
⭐Try breaking down a big task into smaller steps, this way it will be easier to accomplish and you will not feel overwhelmed.
**MOTIVATION is not something that just happens to us, it’s something we have to actively work on.**
Sometimes, all it takes is a small push to get started, and once we do, the motivation will follow. 😃
So, take ACTION, notice RESULTS, and watch as progress leads to
MOTIVATION. A.R.M. 💪
