What is Motivation

What does this word mean to you, motivation? Can you define yourself as a motivated person? Where can you go to for help?

 

Motivation to me, means doing the things you don’t necessarily want to do, but you do it anyway. I am in no way perfect, I have my own demons I need to conquer. My biggest demon is getting up early and getting my day started before everyone else. For the past two weeks, I have set my alarm clock for 5am, I have failed miserably everyday so far. Tomorrow I will set it again and I WILL succeed. Your motivation can’t be for anyone else but yourself. You have to want to do it for you and your goals alone.

 

Overall, I am motivated to accomplish the goals I set for the day, week, month, and year. Motivation takes discipline and discipline equals freedom. To be disciplined you must grind through every day and avoid taking the easy way out. If you don’t feel like training, get your ass up and train. If you want to sit around, be lazy, and watch tv, turn the tv off and find a way to improve yourself. If you don’t want to wake up early (this one is for me), get your ASS out of bed!! If you don’t feel like doing anything, go through the motions and get things done. If you aren’t challenging yourself on a daily basis you aren’t really living. Be Disciplined!!

 

I go to YouTube for help when I am feeling really unmotivated. I have two people I turn to when I can’t do it on my own. Asking for help isn’t weakness, it helps build discipline and character. My first go to is a man named Jocko Willink, ret. Navy Seal Commander, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt, and business owner. Jocko, helps me realize I can always do more. The grind is never over and you can’t take days off. My second go to is Joe Rogan, comedian, UFC announcer, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt, and radio personality. Joe, has a way to motivate me through comedy and sincerity. He isn’t afraid to be himself on and off the air. Self-acceptance is critical when trying to improve your character. If you can’t accept yourself, others won’t accept you either, start there and never give up!
