No matter who you are, what you do, or what your goals are, there are probably things in your life that you would benefit from doing that you’d prefer not to do. Today, I really didn’t want to go for a run – nor record this podcast – and yet I did both.

So, how can you get yourself to do the things you need to do, even when you don’t have the drive, motivation, or energy to do them? When you lose your motivation, you need to get tactical. It’s time to implement concrete strategies to reframe the situation and recapture your momentum.

Inspired by my experience this morning, I’ve decided to use today’s episode to explore this further and help answer the crucial question: how do you get yourself to take action and do the things you know you need to do, even when you don’t feel like doing them?

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How objects, challenges, setbacks, defeats, and failures squash the goal achieving mindset – and what to do when the infatuation period wears off after you’ve adopted a new habit.
  • What my Cutco sales manager said to me when I told him I wasn’t feeling motivated – and how this reality check empowered me to take responsibility for my feelings.
  • How to reframe taking action and doing the things you don’t want to do in your daily practice.
