With every task there will come a time where motivation levels run low, taking fitness goals for instance: everyone wants the end result but nobody really wants to make the effort to change, Lets say you want to lose a stone in weight.

  • You know what to do, the actions to take and at first you do very well.
  • You eat the right foods, take a little exercise.
  • But gradually your fuel runs out.
  • Progress slows.
  • The weight loss is minimal.

And you stop, wishing you’d never started.

So why did you lose your motivation?

  • Because you didn’t have enough in the first place?
  • Because your goal was unrealistic?
  • Could you have remained motivated if you had set an achievable goal?

Why do you lose your motivation?

    • Because you aren’t sure enough that you want to do this?
    • Because you begin to believe the ‘doom and gloom’ merchants?
    • Because this is something very new and a bit scary for you?
  • How can you find it?
