Ep #33: How Much Is Trying To Rely On Motivation Keeping You Stuck?

Written by Chaney Weiner

How many times have you set goals and for some reason ended up giving up on them? And how many times did you try again by becoming motivated in some way? How did that end up?

If it ended up with you yet again not being able to follow through and eventually giving up, there’s a very good reason why.

In this podcast episode Chaney discusses what causes people to give up every time and how big of a role trying to rely on motivation is responsible for this…and what the alternative is that gets you to follow through on your biggest goals and what you say is most important to you.

You’ll discover:

  • A real life example of the nuances of motivation and how this leads to not following through on what you say your goals are.
  • The language of motivation and why using this language is a clear sign of something that’s not important to you (even though you may say it is at first).
  • Why motivation is temporary and fades (which leads to why people don’t follow through on their goals and give up).
  • Why motivation leaves you depending on someone (or something) else instead of being in control of your life.
  • The alternative to motivation that is permanent, reliable, and gets you to follow through on your goals.
  • The difference between motivation and inspiration.
  • The language of inspiration and how this is a clear indication that you’ll have a high probably of following through on your goals.
  • How the type of action you take is different when inspired versus motivated.
  • What allows you to stay focused on your goals.
  • What to do when other people are telling you, “You should”, “You have to”, “You’ve got to”, “You’re supposed” (and the ways this subconsciously holds you back)
  • The difference between motivation and inspiration when it comes to dealing with what people say about you and not giving up.
  • How to deal with the “tests” life throws at you from motivation versus inspiration.
