So what’re you waiting for? Get motivated now!

1. Discover the Resistance

What’s holding you back? Is it fear? Uncertainty? “What if” scenarios? Write this question down in your journal, “What’s holding me back?”, and then sit with it for a few moments. Write down everything that comes up. Once you’ve written down what’s keeping you stuck, just the awareness of it alone will give you a new perspective, and potentially new empowerment to start moving forward. Don’t wait, write it down now!

2. Take the First Step

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Okay, so you want to walk a thousand miles. What if you just took the first step, just a baby step? What if you did the first logical thing, like making that phone call, doing the research, filling out a form, or opening up your book? Forget about the mountain that you want to climb and look down at the first 2 steps in front of you. Put one foot in front of the other. Something holding you back? See above.

3. How Badly Do You Want It?

Harness your desire! If you want it badly enough, then how can anything stop you from getting it? What possible excuse can stand in your way? You didn’t have the time? You’re not sure how? Write down your excuses. Then ask yourself, “How badly do I want this?” If you want it badly enough, then get in touch with your deep desire to get it. Then nothing can you stop you. As Randy Pausch said, “The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something.”

4. What If You Don’t Do It

What’ll happen if you don’t do it? Will your life continue to be mediocre and unremarkable? Will you regret not getting started sooner years from now? Think about how continuing to stay in your comfort zone makes you feel. To be stagnating and stuck. Yuck! Get disgusted, get angry, get upset the way things have been going for you. Think about what it’d be like if you decide to continue on this road you’ve been on. How does not taking action affect your life negatively?



5. Make Your To-Do List

Make your to-do list… Not to look at it. To do it! Making the list shouldn’t take you more than 5 minutes. What are you going to do with the next 55 minutes? Start at the top with number one. Forget about everything else and focus on completing just this first task. Remove all distractions, no Facebook, turn off your phone, and commit to getting the first task done. Finished? Great job! Now go straight to the second task. Push yourself to just start moving forward, and you will start building momentum.

6. Make It Your Top Priority

What is it that you want to get motivated on? Set your goal first. After your goal is set, make it your number one priority. Really, how important is the tv show you’re watching? How important is checking Facebook again, or googling that random thought? Make this goal the top thing in your life (aside from health, family, relationships, etc.). Get after it. Don’t hold yourself back. If you’re feeling called upon to do it… go for it! I promise you, you won’t regret it.

7. Get a Life Coach

Talk to a life coach. Find the right one and you’ll get inspired, motivated, empowered, encouraged, supported, helped, and believed in. They have an assortment of personal development tools to motivate you. Your life coach will take you beyond just motivation to discover what’s really holding you back and why you’re procrastinating.
