When you want something bad enough, the end result can seem so beautiful. That dream job with the perfect hours and great salary. That guy or girl with all the right characteristics. That perfect house or car that would make everybody jealous. But let me tell you, when the novelty wears off, it will hit you like a ton of bricks.
It’s so funny how we pump ourselves up to do a certain thing and we stay amped for a month, maybe two. But something happens along the way and we lose interest and just quit altogether.
People join the gym and make these drastic New Years resolutions(myself included) only to let a couple months pass and quit before they actually attain anything. But something strange is happening and maybe it’s just me. Folks at the gym seem to be equally motivated as when the year first started. Maybe they have events to attend, maybe I just haven’t given them enough time to quit, or maybe, just maybe they chose not to give up once their goals were no longer glamorous.
The object to staying motivated is to go for the goal despite the process. Nine times out of ten, whatever we are working toward is something that’s at least a little far fetched. Otherwise we would’ve worked toward it long ago.
Sticking with the steps is a sure fire way to not only reach your goal, but to build your endurance that will take you to many victories. But endurance hurts doesn’t it?
Endurance is the one thing that is inevitable. You must learn to dig deep even when you don’t feel like it. Endurance and emotions should always be separate entities and if you continue to allow them to work hand in hand, you will always have difficulties pursuing your goals.
Are you still on the path to success or have you drifted back into neutral? What are your motivating factors to keep you going? Keep your eyes on the goal and stick with the process.
