I have a client who is struggling to find the right type of motivation. Let me explain…
She is used to running on the ‘short-term gain’ type of motivation-fuelled by adrenaline and cortisol. Not a high-performance strategy when it comes to sustainable motivation.
Although stress feels like an energy jolt to the system, which may help you produce more in the short-term, it is absolutely a dangerous form of motivation in the long-term; it is detrimental to your sleep, your weight and your cognitive functions, to name a few.
In this week’s ‘MoMonday Video: Change The Channel’ (click here to watch), I deliver top-notch motivational training on how to create a more sustainable, long-term strategy for motivation.
Remember that managing your focus is a direct line to managing your state, and the state you are in directly influences the results you produce.
Pay attention to the physical cues associated with your state so that you can successfully identify when to initiate the ‘change the channel’ strategy.
Training your brain how to focus on what you can control is the ultimate high-performance strategy. Follow this week’s exercise and watch your long-term motivation soar.
Until next time, make every performance count!
