From Uninspired to Mojo in 3 Easy Steps

Motivation!Whether it’s losing weight or trying to leave your job, being motivated can make all the difference between staying stuck or taking your Mojo back and moving forward. Preparation for success often requires hard work though, and this isn’t always easy. Sometimes you might feel like the only way to reach your goal is with unlimited amounts of motivation — how much harder do you think you’ll paddle if you’re being chased by a shark? By now you’re probably wondering, “Where do I find my motivation?” For me, the worst time frame was after I knew I needed to leave my job but before knowing how I would make a living. So my motivation to get out of a toxic environment was buried under a real fear of being an unemployed single mother. Here are some things I did that you can try: Find motivation from those around you. The world is filled with people who could have made it but didn’t. It is also filled with many successful people who seem to reach higher and achieve more every day. • The great news is that you can draw lots of motivation from both types of people. Those who haven’t achieved much can serve as reminder of where you probably don’t want to be and why you’re working so hard to reach success. • People that are enjoying great amounts of success can give you a concrete vision of where you can one day be. • In addition, seeing others like you becoming successful reinforces the idea that it is indeed possible to turn your own dream into a reality. • If others can be successful, then why can’t you? Rather than coming up with reasons why you can’t reach success, focus on discovering all the reasons why you can! Stay focused on your purpose. If you’re training to run a marathon, you’ll probably wind up spending significant amounts of time running every day. If you’re waking up every morning and subjecting your body to intense levels of physical exertion with no goal in front of it, you’ll be more likely to lose interest. • A major part of being successful is reminding yourself why you’re making all these changes. • When you remember your “why,” you’ll devote more focused energy into your preparation to achieve outstanding results. • It’s important to stay centered on the reason you’re doing something, and if you’re unable to come up with a reason, perhaps you should be doing something else. Believe in yourself. When you’re in the trenches, working hard each day to grind your way to victory, it can be easy to question yourself and your abilities. • Stay positive and have faith in your skills and hard work. Otherwise you’ll be planting a seed of doubt in everything that you do. If you truly struggle with believing in yourself, ask a friend who believes in you to remind you of this on a regular basis. She’ll believe in you until you can believe in yourself! • Remaining positive can be a challenge, yet part of the entire idea of having faith in yourself has much to do with continuing to move forward even when you’re not clear where your steps will take you. • Even when you’re not sure exactly how you’re going to achieve your goal, you can still take steps towards that goal, knowing in your heart that you’ll successfully cross any bridges once they present themselves. Practice using these techniques each day and soon you’ll find that motivation seems to come naturally to you. Your days of lost Mojo will be a thing of the past as you boldly go forward into your shining future of success! Michelle Pitot, EdD, CPC, is the founder of ProMojo Coaching and Consulting.
