“Needs cause motivation. Deep-rooted desires for esteem, affection, belonging, achievement, self-actualization, power, and control motivate us to push for what we want and need in our lives.”
Lorii Myers

How many times have we told ourselves in complete earnestness, “I’m going to be more organized and productive from now on.”? Or that the diet starts tomorrow? Or that we’re going to make a real effort to exercise now?

.
You want to but only to have that enthusiasm fizzle away, and all your best intentions come to nothing. So motivate yourself. Most importantly decide you want to really want it. It is not enough to feel pressure to do something – you have to really desire it. I mean, really desire it, not just think it is something you should do, or that you will be a better person for doing it.

Get moving, a little at a time. Inertia is beat only by movement. Once you get going, momentum builds up and inertia is no longer a factor. The key is to get started….it is about baby steps, one at a time.

.
Laziness, the second culprit, is beat by a bit of public pressure. We all get lazy from time to time (or, to be more honest, all the time), and there is nothing wrong with that. But to beat laziness, we need a bit of pressure, in the form of accountability. Pressure is a motivating thing, especially when it is positive. Positive pressure includes encouragement from family or friends, or the readers of your blog

Motivate yourself. Most importantly, you want to really want it. It is not enough to feel pressure to do something – you have to really desire it. I mean, really desire it, not just think it is something you should do, or that you will be a better person for doing it. If pressure gives you the push toward your goal, motivation gives you the pull.

.
Remember, making your desires become reality all begins when you take action.  It all begins by taking that first step…..decide to do it today

“The decide word is so powerful. It’s amazing what you can do once you decide to do it.”
