How You Developed Bad Habits That Rob You Of Motivation
Bad habits rob you of your motivation.
Today I want to tell you why I decided I absolutely had to take charge of my self-motivation. And why you must do the same.
As you read this article you will start to understand why a lack of motivation is costing you even more than you realize.
Growing up I never really had much trouble getting things done. I was told what to do by my parents or by my teachers and I did what was expected of me because it was the easiest choice for me.
Getting punished never appealed to me very much.
Then as I got older and especially when I joined the workforce I could get away with doing less and with leaving things until the deadline approached.
In fact in one company where I worked it made no sense finishing work before the deadlines because management kept moving the goal posts.
And very often I worked with people who refused to stretch themselves. This culture of doing as little as you can and appearing to be productive slowly dragged me down.
Over the years as a result of experiences like these I developed bad habits.
I can see now how a few bad choices in how I approached work affected all aspects of my life. The same may be true for you.
What we did over the years was create bad habits that need to be given up and replaced with a new way of behaving.
Do you realize what this bad habit has cost you in your life?
Now is the time to take charge of this situation. I can tell you from my own experience that nothing will change until you decide to change and nothing will improve until you improve it.
You owe it to yourself and to the people who care about you to seize the day and make your life something to be proud of.
The satisfaction that comes from living life on your own terms is a wonderful gift you deserve to enjoy. And you will only have this once you know how to motivate yourself to create the life you dream of.
My income jumped, my social life improved dramatically and new opportunities for having even more of what I wanted all came about for me only after I learned the secrets of self- motivation.
The world did not change. Other people did not change. I changed. Only When YOU change will your world change for the better.
Before I go...
Think of those people who look down on your lack of progress and take you for granted, think of that sense you have of not been in control.
All of these feelings of dissatisfaction are not going to disappear-- in fact they will dominate your life as the years pass you by.
These issues are not going to go away all by themselves.
I tried the wait and see approach - it does not work!
You need to stop the rot as a matter of urgency.
