You don’t need motivation. You need to build habits and develop discipline.
My honest advice would be to forget motivation.
I mean it’s great when you have it, so use it when you do, but it’s usually rare and doesn’t last long.
The truth of the matter is that the majority of the time you’re not going to be motivated to do the things you know you should do.
And that’s normal. NORMAL!!!
The key is to do them anyway.
Build habits. Because you do habits whether you feel like it or not.
No one gets excited to clean their teeth, pay their bills, do the housework etc but they do it anyway, because it’s a habit. You can apply the same discipline to your eating and exercise habits.
Most find that once they start, they find the motivation to get it done anyway.
Most of the time it’s the action that precedes the feeling. Not the other way around.
Just get started.
If you’re struggling to get it done it’s likely not because of motivation, it’s probably because you don’t like it or it’s too difficult.
Find something you enjoy and start small.
And also remember that sometimes you’ve just got to get it done.
