Motivation does not happen to us. It is a muscle that we need to build. After an inspirational talk, we might feel motivated for a while but will fall back to our old routines.
What is lacking is a behaviour to put our knowledge in motion. In the beginning, we will hardly notice any progress. With practice and repetition, our brains will create patterns of learning. Eventually, the tasks that required a lot of effort will become effortless.
Knowing what keeps you back is as valuable as determining how to get started.
Whether you desire to invest in daily reading, work out in the gym, eat healthily or anything else, the second step is to give momentum to the motivation flywheel by scheduling it.
Do not prioritize what is on your schedule. Instead, ensure that you schedule your priorities.
Set simple routines to help you get started without much effort. For example, for a writing goal, set up your table with a bottle of water and read what you wrote the previous day.

Input without output can demotivate us, making us question our choices and re-evaluate our strategies.
Reach out to friends, family, colleagues and share where you are, what you desire, and seek advice on how to move forward. Join groups and networks with similar interests and learn from people who have done this before.

With time, you will notice a transformation in how you approach new goals.
