How to get motivated and what IS motivation???
We have been talking a lot about motivation and we’ve been giving you some workout tips, fitness tips and sharing our stories.
But what is motivation and how do we get motivated?
For me motivation is very important, it drives me, it make me want to go for something and do it. I see motivation as a desire, an energy that drives me to take action in life, in my training, in my business and it propels me to follow my dreams and achieve MY GOALS.
But that’s the thing, without any goals it’s impossible to get motivated…and I promise we will talk more about setting goals in my next blog post. Today, I will stick to my subject and talk about what motivation means to me and how I use “motivation” in my everyday life.
3 Simple Steps to Motivate Yourself Every Day Into Taking ACTION.
Step 1: First you set a goal and find the “reason” you want it and create and absolute desire to achieve this goal. For me its traveling around the world on my motorbike. My secondary personal goal is to take care of my body, be fit strong, and staying as healthy as possible. But this will differ from person to person; so this will be totally different for you, but to get “motivated” you need to find what you Absolutely Desire…
Here’s a list of some of the things I do to keep my Absolute Desire Alive:
- Every morning and evening visualize your goal, stoke the flames of your desire and see yourself already doing what you want to do.
- Write it down on a piece of paper.
- Every day I always ask myself why am I waking up and going to work. I then remember the big picture and find myself motivated…

Step 2: Then the next step is to ask yourself the right questions, questions that empower you like:
What am I happy about in my life right now?
What excites me?
What am I grateful about in my life?
What am I proud of in my life?
Who loves me and who do I love?
After answering these questions honestly to yourself, you will find yourself empowered. I usually find myself filled with excitement and power, and I’m eager to start my day!
Step 3: Laser focus on one thing at the time and have fun doing it…
Once you have a goal, make a plan and mini goals on how to achieve it!
Make a to do list and focus on the 2 most important tasks that need to be done FIRST and completely kill it and make it happen. After you complete those 2 mini-goals, then you can relax, play with your phone, and have some down time.
Remember when you were a kid? Homework first and then you could go out to play…practice that as an adult and you’ll be surprised with how much more you’ll get done.
How to make the to do list and what’s important?
Make sure everything you do will move you towards your goal. Don’t know what to do or where to start? Find people who did it and ask. Get a coach, if its fitness we can help.
Once you’ve figured out your goals then the next most important thing is to make it fun achieving those goals.
Straight up, doing something you flat out despise won’t be something you will, or can keep up with. The second you can, you will drop it like a bad habit.
For that reason, whatever you’re doing — be it saving up money for that new car or losing 15 pounds — you got to make it enjoyable. The more enjoyable it is, the more you’ll do it. The more you’ll do it, the better you’ll get at it. The better you get at it, the quicker the end result will come.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way. Do you hate jogging? No problem. Take a MuayThai class — the fat will fall off that way, too. Horrible at writing papers? Change to a topic that drives you. Can’t save money to save your life? Switch environments. Your world is yours to create — what you make of it can change your motivation (and your life) entirely.
