3 Reasons why You’re not Motivated and what to do about it!

steve austin

In the last part of our 3 part series on starting your health and wellness journey, we talk about Motivation. Thus far, we’ve covered Time and Money, both of which have a lot of variables. But, Time and Money can both be found by mixing things around and doing some prioritizing. Motivation, on the other hand, is internal (or at least it should be. You should NEVER, EVER, EVER do something because someone else wants you to.), and therefore much harder to find when you’re looking for it.

 

Although Motivation is an internal element that is dependent on each person’s situation and mindset, some of us can be effected by external factors to get us down the health and wellness path. For instance, maybe you have a wedding coming up, or a vacation, or maybe you’re pre-diabetic or have hypertension (technically these 2 are internal, but on a different level). These external factors could be a great building block for your health. For a lot of us, on the other hand, Motivation is just not there. I want to give you an idea of why your Motivation may be missing and what you can do to find it, so let’s get started…

 

Like I said before, Motivation is internal. But the majority of our internal Motivation is predicated upon our external environment and how we take it in. Let me show you how:

 

 

As you can see, there are a lot of things out there that eat at your Motivation. It’s nearly impossible to go a day, or even a couple of hours, without seeing or hearing about one of the factors above. So now, we have to figure out what we can do to fight the good fight, to feed your good wolf and get you moving down the health and wellness path!

 

 

Give yourself a chance when it comes to getting Motivated. Don’t get wrapped up in what other people are doing and focus on where you are NOW. Everyone has to start at point A, but point A is different for everybody! Buy in and go do it!
