The other day, I was asked a question by a reader and friend.
She asked: “It’s hard for me to stay motivated and consistently make progress towards my goals. How do I get motivated and stay motivated?“
It’s a good question, because when we are motivated, we stay consistent and we make progress. We’ll stay up late, read all the books, put in the extra work, develop the skills, create the habits and do all the little things necessary to realize our goal.
It’s that simple.
This got me thinking about the times where I was driven like an obsessive maniac to accomplish a goal, and the times I was unmotivated and failed.
After searching through my stories, and re-reading the lessons of great leaders and peak performers, I noticed that there are 4 fundamentals to getting motivated and staying motivated.
When we understand and implement these fundamentals we create unstoppable motivation and achieve our goal.
