I was working with a client last week who was having a lot of trouble sustaining her motivation. So we took a deeper look at where she was getting her motivation from.
Turns out her motivation was entirely extrinsic (external to herself)-a terrible strategy when it comes to motivating yourself because when your motivation is external to you, you can’t control it.
When it comes to motivation, the best strategy is to get it from intrinsic sources (internal to you). That way you can flick your motivation on and off like a switch, whenever you need it most.
In today’s MoMonday Video I explore the inspired state, which is the ultimate intrinsic motivator. In addition, I offer you a top-notch tool designed to help you activate YOUR inspired state.
Being proactive about looking for your inspiration could be just what you need to access the sustainable motivation you need to achieve your most important performance outcomes.
Until next time, make every performance count!
