Most of us will kind of wait around for the motivation to do something. The truth is success drives motivation, not the other way around. So give yourself some easy wins to get the ball rolling. Motivation starts with action, which leads to success, but you don’t have to play this chicken or the egg game. Pick 1 or 2 things that you could do, that you would do, and do them!
An example here is getting back in the swing of things with in the gym. Just schedule and show up to the gym 3x per week (don’t even worry about what happens when you get there). Boom, success! Build on it! Look at your (probably long!) to do list and take off a few easy ones first, the low hanging fruit. Pick 2 easy easy things that are undone, and then you can check those off within a few minutes the next morning, and get a few easy wins to get the ball rolling!
Give yourself a running start getting after your goals! Success will lead to further motivation. Give it a shot, works every time!
