We all have goals that we probably won't ever achieve. I want to lose 10 pounds, learn Spanish, and take more voice lessons. I read something recently that talked about the motivating factor and how you need to create a REAL motivator to get something done. A false motivator is bland. What REALLY motivates you to achieve your goal?
Here are mine:
False Motivator: I want to lose weight so I look good in a bathing suit.
Real Motivator: I want to lose weight because when I went to Belize the lady at the salon made sure to point out to me that they offered pre-natal massages and I don't want anyone else to ever mistake me for being pregnant.
So this sign now sits in my car near the window...the window I order McDonald's out of:
False Motivator: I want to take voice lessons so I can get back into musical theater.
Real Motivator: I want to take voice lessons because I want a fucking actual role in a musical because I hate being in love with something that I'm not awesome at.
So this sign now sits in my car near the radio...so instead of listening to the latest music, I can work on scales:
Make sense? So what are you goals and what is the real motivation behind them? And how do you REALLY motivate yourself? Share :-)
