Many people don’t really lack motivation, they lack models of what’s possible - they have limiting beliefs of what’s achievable.
That’s why inspirational stories and role models can be so powerful: they open our eyes to a whole new realm of possibilities.
Just like there are some tasks that drain you and other tasks that excite you, there are people who drain you and people who catalyze you.
But first and foremost though, make sure that you are your own catalyst. Be a coach, not a critic. When you fail, don’t beat yourself up.
Imagine the goals that really inspire you. Word your goals in such a way that they automatically “pull” you toward them. If it feels like you are trying to “push” yourself, then there is something getting in the way.
Also, frame the goal in such a way that you are drawn to both the outcome and the journey.
