The Law of Motivation
Most of us are motivated by one of two things — desperation or inspiration.
Usually we wait until we are desperate before we get serious about changing something in our lives. The doctor says stop smoking and start eating right or die, the bill collectors are calling, children are out of control, or a spouse is walking out the door.
Inspiration, on the other hand, comes from looking ahead, anticipating what is coming and getting motivated to prepare for the rest of your life.
The Law of Looking Back
Looking back before you look ahead can help create and build motivation. Look back on the last three months of your life. If you like what you see, don't get too comfortable and rest on your laurels. Keep doing what you have been doing or do even more of what has been working.
If you don't like what you see, it's time to make some changes.
The Law of Remaining the Same
If you continue to do the things you've always done, you'll get the same results you've always gotten. Ask yourself what life will be like a month from now if you keep doing what you've been doing. What about six months from now? A year? Two years? I'm willing to bet it's not a pretty sight.
The Law of Looking Ahead
Begin to take actions today that can propel you into a future worth looking forward to. Turn the previous questions around. What would it be like a month, six months, one year, two years from now if you took the necessary actions each day to achieve your goals? That can be worth working toward.
