All motivation becomes self-motivation

All motivation becomes self-motivation.

As an adolescent and young adult, basically until we move out on our own, we can be “force motivated” by parents, teachers, peer pressure, and media.

Eventually we learn that motivation from others isn’t powerful anymore because we’ve reached an age and belief that we can make our own choices.

We can do whatever we please.

Staying highly motivated over our lifetime is work.

Our work ethic drives the depth and effectiveness of our habits – and vice versa.

Habits control our behaviors.

Our habits (hence our behaviors) are birthed and strengthened by our motivation.

And everything we receive in life is affected by our habits.

Habits that do one of two things:

  1. help us grow strong and thrive
  2. don’t help our growth and accelerate our decline

An underrated habit is continuously choosing to have habits that are by design rather than by default – or vice versa.

This underrated habit forges your destiny.

Quit it like you mean it

just do it
From an email i subscribe to. Yesterday’s in-box.

 

Quit making excuses.

Quit putting it off.

Quit complaining about it.

Quit dreaming about it.

Quit whining about it.

Quit crying about it.

Quit believing you can’t.

Quit worrying if you can.

Quit waiting until you’re older.

Quit waiting until you’re skinnier, richer, braver.

Quit waiting for conditions to be better.

Quit it already.

Excellence…every time?

UIHC
Working with CEO’s is awesome, and challenging.

 

Heading out at 7:20am this morning via Lyft to Orlando International Airport to attend a surprise 50th birthday party for a CEO i’ve known since 2014.

Our relationship began as a business association – as a contracted business advisor.

As we’ve worked together we’ve become friends – the same way it happens when you are colleagues.

The label pin photo is from a multi-year Disney Institute client (a different executive).

Here’s what i’ve come to expect from CEOs: they all intuitively know culture is their most important asset. And they struggle to make it their number one priority.

Endeavors require effort and long-term commitment

clock
Time is the great equalizer. We all get 24 hours each day.
The unfair thing is we don’t all get the same number of days.

 

Endeavors require effort and long-term commitment.

If you are willing to pay the price (whatever that means to you), you have a chance at succeeding in your endeavor.

Without a willingness to endeavor you are lost.

Without a willingness to pay the price, you are lost.

And like yesterday’s posts revealed, without a willingness to learn who you can become, you are lost.

It all comes down to one thing

bacon in microwave
Bacon and eggs for breakfast. About to microwave bacon. When it comes to bacon and eggs, the chicken is involved, the pig is committed.

 

It all comes down to one thing.

Commitment.

We succeed when we are committed.

We don’t when we’re not committed.

Flip through the pages of your book of life.

See how this has played out?

It’s unerringly consistent.

Why?

Life has simple principles.

Yes, there is an exception to literally everything except death and taxes.

And when you take out the anomaly factor, it’s a consistent principle.

Commitment.

Caution…

Commitment is often confused with desire, drive, hope, dreams, priorities.

Be careful.
