Where to find motivation

Where to find motivation

You won’t find it on a map or in a treasure chest

You won’t find it in the woods

Or over a rainbow

It won’t come to you either

Motivation you find in doing what you don’t have the motivation to start.

Say its going to the gym

You might not be motivated to go

But once your there and the more you keep going the more motivated you’ll find yourself.

Restarting Hurts

Restarting hurts

Restarting takes effort, it takes time to get back into the flow and making it a habit again.

I injured both my ankles during lockdown, I could barely walk let alone exercise so I rested,

Which turned into more resting and more before I knew it a couple of months had passed and I hadn’t done anything

Getting back into the gym hurt, both physically and mentally

I had to break out of the comfort of not going I have to deal with the muscle soreness

Restarting hurts

It’s easier to not quit and keep going

But it’s better than never trying again

It’s better than doing nothing

It hurts but the pain is temperamental

Can you imagine?

“Can you imagine yourself in 10 years if, instead of avoiding the things you know you should do, you actually did them every single day? That’s powerful.”

Jordan Peterson

Procrastination will kill you faster than a natural death, I know I’m a master procrastinator,

I put off things for weeks/months, I started editing a book and saw a note I left in it that said its Feb 2020 at the time of editing, 8 months later still not done

I could be in a lot better shape, I could be a lot smarter, I might even still be in a relationship if I did the stuff I knew I should.

We need to snap out of this distraction mentality Because it stops us from living.

Having good intentions

Having Good intentions

But bad effort

Anyone can have the best intentions,

The best intention to get in shape before a holiday, revise for a test, read a book, well there’s loads of examples.

Whenever I go abroad I always said I would learn the language or some of it at least,

I’ve bought audiobooks, physical books all with the best of intentions of learning it, but the effort didn’t match the intention.

It’s like having the best intentions to get in shape you buy loads of training gear, buy a ‘health magazine’, loads of healthy food,

Then grab a takeout and leave the above to collect dust.

To make traction

Our efforts need to be more than our intentions.

Suffering

Suffering

Is what we’re going to face whether we leave the door or not, suffering exists on both sides of it,

Suffering will happen if you go for that job or not,
If you speak to that person or not,
If you workout or not,
If you better your education or not

Suffering is a part of life it will show up if we walk left or right, don’t move at all or just stay on the same path we’re on.

We are going to suffer

So you might as well suffer at something that will make the suffering worthwhile

Example – If choose to workout, you have to suffer through the workout, you have to suffer from the hard work, from the lifestyle changes and the sacrifices you have to make like going to the gym over going straight home and watching the tv.

But through that suffering you get healthier, you feel a lot better, you look better, you have more energy.

If you don’t choose to workout, you get to eat what you want, have those lazy days, don’t have to face the gym, but all that pleasure will lead to suffering,

Your health will start to degrade, you might gain weight, you will lose energy, feel under par most of the time, struggle with concentration and so on…

Suffering is everywhere
All we can do is pick ur poison – Jordan Peterson
