How many times have you heard the words “just get motivated!!” and yet you cannot seem to get moving. You just wait and wait for motivation to “hit” you. And then hours go by, days go by, weeks go by, months go by, and even years go by, and you are still waiting for motivation to hit you. To seize you, to rattle your cages so to speak. And yet, the things you want to do, need to do go left undone. And you tell yourself, “when motivation hits me THEN I will get it done.” And yet here you are…..still waiting for motivation.
So what if you just said, “screw motivation!” and just took some sort of action. Anything….something. Rather than just sitting there waiting. Make that phone call that needs to be made, write that blog post, start working on the book you have always wanted to write, reach out to old friends….anything. Just to take some sort of action. And trust me, through taking action, any action, comes the motivation to keep taking action. It is action that creates motivation, not motivation that creates action.
Namaste, my friends.
