The #1 Secret to Getting Your Ass Motivated to Take Action NOW

After 9 months of failing to even attempt a goal that I was after I realized I had to make a change in my level of motivation.  Up to that point I had been using pleasurable rewards for achieving the goal.  I would say when I accomplish this then I will buy that for myself.  The goal really wasn’t anything even that far fetched.  It was really just a test of will and to do something I was extremely uncomfortable doing.  I kept putting it off.

Till finally one day I looked at myself in the mirror and said if I don’t accomplish this task today then I will not pick up my daughter from daycare.  I am a single parent and so that would have broken my little girls heart. To not have her father pick her up from school.  The trust bond would have been broken between us.  And I meant it when I said it to myself in the mirror.  Within one hour I completed the task I had been putting off for over 9 months and it’s not because I was going to receive a reward, but rather that I was motivated by fear…fear and pain.  Fear and pain are two of the greatest motivators of all.  And

I urge you that if there is a task that you want to accomplish and you keep putting it off because the reward of achieving it is not motivating enough then I dare you to switch it around and make it so that if you don’t accomplish the task then you will suffer somehow.  But please be within reason, you don’t want to make the task so unrealistic like “if I don’t make a million dollars by the end of the week then I’m going to jump off a bridge” then that is just setting yourself up for failure.  I recommend to set the goal/task as something that you can definitely achieve, then add the fear incentive.

Turn Your Mess Into A Message

It’s easy to feel that we are unique in our lives when we go through a traumatic situation.  We can feel that have been cursed, unlucky, and that people that are successful have been lucky or favorable.  There is nothing more far from the truth.  I love to read biographies of great people throughout history and the one thing I always find in common with people that have achieved greatness is that they went through extraordinary amounts of pain, suffering, and failure before they finally broke through.

Realize that if you have had tremendous challenges in your life that this is just a chapter in your book, but does not have to be the conclusion of the story.  You hold the pen in writing the story of your life from this moment forward.  I believe that one of the reasons we go through difficult situations is so that we can show others that you can go through that same type of challenge and still make it through.

Enjoy this inspirational speech and focus on turning whatever mess you are going through into a message that can positively impact others!

Stop Being a “Yes-aholic”

I feel so many of us go through life saying “yes” to everything.  We over obligate ourselves to situations that we don’t really want to do, just out of being a nice.  Or more likely that we are actually afraid to say “no”.  It’s okay to say NO.  You don’t have to say yes to every single invitation to go out to lunch, to volunteer, to help someone out, to loan someone money, etc.  We end up being what I like to call a “yes-aholic”.  Sometimes we need to put our foot down.  I used to be a “yes-aholic” and I found myself with severe anxiety and a sense of always feeling overwhelmed.  I felt disorganized and chaotic in my life because I said yes to almost everything out of of an effort to please everyone.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s good to say yes.  Yes to situations and opportunities that you can commit to and feel comfortable with.  But I truly believe it’s more important to learn to say no.  Learn to say “no” to a person that is abusive, to the friends that want you to party when you know you shouldn’t, or to the parental figure that doesn’t agree with the career choice you want to make.

Then follow up with your other most powerful word is your “I will”.  That is your relentless commitment to a resolve.

Learn to use your two most powerful weapons: Your “No” and your “I Will”

Never forget just how valuable YOU are!

Sometimes we forget our value.  Someone we love leaves us for someone else, we get fired from a job, or we try so hard to succeed at something and still fail.  When this happens we feel less than.  We compare ourselves to other people and feel like we just are not that valuable.  In reality that is just our ego.  We always lack in the eyes of our ego.  Thinking that fame, success, and money will bring happiness is an illusion.  Just look at how many famous actors commit suicide…Robin Williams appeared to have everything anyone could ever want, but guess the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

If we are not happy with what we have, what makes us think we’ll be happy with more?  

Realize that you are valuable.  If you have the ability to read this message then you have the gift of eyesight, which in itself is something to be grateful for.  If someone offered you $1,000,000 to give them your eyes would you do it? No way.  You can’t put a price on eyesight.  And that’s just a fraction of your value.  

Enjoy this short inspirational video to help remind you of just how valuable YOU are!

BRAND NEW! Rudy – Inspirational Motivational Video w/ Anthony Robbins & Jim Carrey

Enjoy this motivational video of the week I compiled of scenes from one of my favorite underdog movies, Rudy! Why is it that the movie Rudy become one of the most famous movies of all time?  A story about a kid who was born too small, too uncoordinated, too unintelligent, and no talent.  He didn’t have a lot of things that a lot of people had, but he did have one thing that a lot of people didn’t have…heart.   The story of Rudy has inspired millions of people because of the heart that the had…he had more heart than talent and that’s why he succeeded despite all the odds!

T.G.I.M. Monday Inspirational Video with Eric Thomas!

TGIF has always been a favorite acronym as everyone eagerly awaits Friday so they can enjoy their weekend off. On the opposite end, Monday is the most lethal day of the week.  More people die of heart attacks Monday morning than any other time of the week.  And more migraine headaches initiate on Sunday evening in anticipation for Monday mornings than any other time.  All of this suffering comes from the fact that the majority of people hate their jobs and dread going back to work again Monday morning.  It’s sad that Monday’s have become a dreadful event for most of society today.  Monday’s will take up 1/7 of our life so we might as well find a way to enjoy them equally.  I tell you what, if you don’t like your Monday’s then give them to me 😉

Here is a short motivational video I created to help inspire you through this Monday and this week.  Speech is compiled by some of the best clips from motivational speaker Eric Thomas.  And the the music is by Zack Hemsey.
