How to Get Motivated When You Don't Feel Like It
If you’re trying to get motivated when you don’t feel like it, what do you think comes first: motivation or action?
If you said “motivation” you made an excellent logical choice. But you would be wrong!
Human behavior does not always follow what appears to be a logical course of action.
We often need to prime motivation with action, the same way we prime a pump to get water. Once we take that first step, we begin to feel motivated. Like the water drawn with the pump, energy and action will begin to flow spontaneously.
But if you wait until you “feel like it,” you may never get started. The key is to get into action by taking a step. Any step. Just start moving!
Ask yourself, “What single step could I take right now that would move me in the direction of my dream?”
Now do it! Send that email, reach out to that person, book that appointment, write down that idea, clean out that drawer. Whatever it is, take that one step right now, and watch the magic of momentum start to build.
