Motivation

Are you ready to have a life you love?

One that’s fulfilling and successful and happy?

Who isn’t?

Anyone?

But where to begin?

Just answer the question: What do I want…and the journey towards the life you love has begun.

And then, to follow through, you need:

Motivation

Which simply put is the desire to do things

Do you get up at o’dark early to flex those muscles at the gym, or tumble out of bed at the last minute, muttering about the day ahead, and fritter and faff your day away?

It probably isn’t either/or…I’m exaggerating.  But what isn’t an exaggeration is that a feeling of continual growth is a marvelous motivator.  Each experience takes you to greater heights, motivates you and provides the confidence and spark for your journey.

Faffing on the other hand, which I can speak about easily because I can do it really, really well is simply frittering your time away.  But there are times when I’m so in love with the project I’m working on that motivation simply oozes out of me.  It’s something I want to do. I know you recognize that feeling.

Being in love is a wonderful motivator

Whether its love for a person or a passion you have.

Losing weight, starting a new business or career, having a great relationship, finding financial freedom are often overwhelming ideals.

How can we get there from here?  To get and stay motivated we must have faith, a belief that we can.  Don’t get overwhelmed by the fact that the finished product, or the fulfillment of the desire has a huge gap between there and here.

It doesn’t have to be done in one flying leap…it can, but it doesn’t have to be…one step at a time works well, sometimes tiny baby steps, sometimes larger strides.  It’s all within reach…its all available…and the power to experience anything in your life is already yours.  You don’t have to go and find it first…it already exists in you.

Motivation is a necessary piece of fulfilling your desires, or attaining your goals

Motivation is what get’s us going and without it we’re just an ember and not a roaring flame, and it’s our inner fire that we need to get burning.

So what is it that that lights your fire?  You need a desire that feeds you. You need a desire that pushes you to reach beyond where you currently are and you need to be willing to let go of who you were, and what you’re doing and what you have. Are you willing to boldly go where no man has gone before?

Truthfully, all you have to do is be willing to give up the comfort of keeping the status quo.

Think about your desire, your goal as though it were really here now

Kendra Cherry of About.com Psychology says the three major components of motivation are activation, persistence and intensity.  And it all begins with making up our mind.

Begin by motivating your subconscious to get into action and believe me when I tell you the subconscious doesn’t care if something is true, or real or not.

The subconscious only cares about your conviction…if you truly believe the desire is yours, even though your senses tell you it’s not true…that’s good enough for oyur sub conscious and it’ll get busy finding ways to make it happen.  You’ll find yourself doing something different.  Someone new will arrive in your life with new ideas, or you’ll read a book and have your very own eureka moment.  And there’s nothing quite as motivating as that brilliant aha.  It’s pretty cool.

So what do you do?  Easy.

Imagine your happy outcome

Focus on what it feels like, looks like, even imagine what people are saying to you, or what we think they might be saying.  And if it isn’t different than what you think they said about you before you began imagining…you’re not quite there yet.

Give up fear based thoughts: I’m not enough, I could never do that, be that, have that, with the multitude of reasons that your mind happily brings up to help confirm your beliefs.  Fear might be a motivator, but love is greater.  To lead the life you love, your dreams need to be love based.

If you feed your mind fear, you’ll find plenty to fear in your world, if you feed your mind loving kindness, you’ll experience more lovely events and conditions.

We have to choose what we allow into our imagination, into our minds because our mind is a powerful tool. By learning how to nurture your motivating thoughts, intervene with negative ones, and remain focused on experiencing the happiness of your current desire, amazing things can occur that lead you across any chasm between where you are and where you want to be.

Motivation will almost always beat mere talent. ~ Norman R. Augustine

Start blooming

You weren’t put on this planet to be wounded or to wound, to struggle or to suffer, but to bloom and to grow and to develop yourself to be the greatest you imaginable. It’s time to stop hurting, stop blaming, stop crying because life doesn’t have to be that hard.  It can be filled with unlimited passion and energy as you let go of relationships that no longer serve,  and move you into higher vibrations of success where you greet each day with enthusiasm and a zest for life.

Are you ready to live a life you love, to be happy, to allow the brilliant inner you to shine?  You truly can experience the life that deep within you know you’re meant to live.

And we need to find and keep motivation, we need encouragement, we need inspiration and a reminder that we are totally connected to, and one with the power that created the universe, and it’s then that we remember that all things are possible.

Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards your dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering. ~ Steve Maraboli

Stop taking things for granted

Begin to acknowledge yourself, your past successes…acknowledge them all…acknowledge you. When you begin to believe in you, your sub conscious mind gets to work, finding ways to fulfill the image you have of yourself.  And delivers it into your world through experiences, events and people who love you.

Live Purposefully now is the name of this website for a reason.  Each and every day we get to deliberately imagine our experiences and your outer physical reality always mirrors your inner world of thought, feeling and imagination.  And it’s not always pretty.  And it’s not always what you want.  And you can change that.

And that’s what I’m here for, to be your greatest cheerleader, your biggest encourager and to share tips and techniques for living the richest life you can imagine.

Encourage one another.

Love Elle
xoxo
