When you find your motivation waning, here is a way to supercharge it so that you can change the world. Change the world, you say? Yes, change the world. Here’s how.
Discover your impact
Sometimes, you may be working on a project that doesn’t seem to matter in the big scheme of things. For example, I really want to be able to do a full round of 66 pushups where I do 11 push ups, rest for 11 seconds, do 10 push ups, rest for 10, do 9, rest for 9 and keep going with that pattern until I get all the way down to 1. I’ve been working at it on and off (mostly off) for the past several years.
The impact of my doing these push ups in the bigger picture? Minimal. Or is it?
Here are a series of questions I asked myself:
- How do you benefit from your activity/project? I feel confident and strong. Powerful. Like I can take on anything!
- When you are impacted in those ways, how does that influence the people around you? When I feel confident and strong, I am happier and more relaxed and because of that, I become a better wife and mother. When I feel strong and confident, I am also better at coaching my clients, and they will get even better results.
- And when those people are influenced in that way, what impact does that have? They become better people, achieve the things they want, start impacting other people and other projects, and before you know it, we’ve created a ripple effect that will CHANGE THE WORLD!!!
When you feel your motivation sinking, ask yourself the above questions.
If you don’t have any motivation to start with, I recommend doing this exercise. It’s my go-to technique when I need to find my motivation.
