Get Motivated Now!

The myth of motivation

How do you get motivated to  achieve the goals you really want?

We will make this very simple. First you need to know WHY you are out there on the front lines everyday,  every week, every month, every year!

Next you need to know what to do.

I will use a short example of a salesman sitting in his car, looking at a business complex in front of him. He knows WHY  he is out there. It is because he needs to pay his mortgage, make his car payment, put food on the table, and take care of his family. It is only a little inspiring. It is only a little motivating. He has securely lodged into his mind WHY he is doing what he is doing.

Next he needs to know WHAT to do. That is maybe the easiest thing of all. He has been trained and retrained to know what to do. If he works for himself he has aspired to that position and knows exactly WHAT  to do.

There is a “Do It Now” post it note on his steering wheel and another one on his dash and another one on his calendar. He is hoping for motivation from those three words as he contemplates what to do now.  Is he waiting for another cool saying or quote that will motivate him to jump out of his car and run in and knock on the first door? Or maybe something larger like a lightning bolt?

That is the myth of motivation. It doesn’t really get things done. If you know what needs to be done you just need to go do it. If you start, the momentum will keep you going.

This is the key; do what you know needs to be done. Do not wait to get motivated. Get motivated later. I promise it will happen. How?

Just go do what you know needs to be done. Knock on the first door. No matter what they say, if you make a big sale or they tell you no, it doesn’t matter. Knock on the next door. Then knock on the next door. It will become easier to knock on the next door. You are doing what you know needs to be done and you are building self esteem and cash. Just go do what you know needs to be done. Action is the key. While your competition is waiting to get motivated, you are building self esteem and cash.

Do what you know needs to be done. Start now!
