Why motivation is nothing without consistent action

Why motivation is nothing without consistent action

 

“When you have built a habit, it’s engrained in your nervous system in such a way that the brain doesn’t even have to consider whether or not it’ll get done, it just get’s done because you committed!

So stop getting motivated, you don’t need motivation.

Motivation doesn’t afford you anything except good feelings in your body.

The good feelings in your body is an indication that there’s something that you want.

Now you get to work by doing it EVERY SINGLE DAY!


Again and again and again.”

 

This wisdom reminded me of my life as a professional dancer.

Dancing since the age of three years old, I built a habit that was engrained not only in my nervous system but in my heart and soul.

Conditioned to hearing my teachers say “do it again” from a very young age, I understood this concept in all of it’s successful glory.

Motivation was never enough, the blood sweat and tears had to follow in order to create the result required.

Often this is what’s missing from the people who wonder why they aren’t getting where they want to be in life.

Not willing to put their guts on the line and fight for their dream consistently over a period of time.

If you listen to your feelings when it comes to what you want, you will never get it because you will never feel like it.

If you are not willing to look for the light even in the darkest of places, without stopping, even when it seems impossible, you will not succeed.

  3. Thanks for sharing . For the past couple days I’ve been listening to motivation . One of my favorite Eric Thomas . I’m so glad I came across this post tonight . Great post .

  4. Love the message here, Alesha. This reminds me of when I was in college out with friends…….we’d always make outlandish plans when our motivation was high (perhaps alcohol was a factor). The point is the motivation was high momentarily……the WRONG way to go about it!! Love the video and always love listen To Tony!!

    1. Thanks for sharing your experience Paul. This reminds me of when I went to my 10 year class reunion. Everyone was so impressed that I actually did what I said I was going to do with my life. Dance!

  5. I must admit on how a habit that you created and do it everyday “haunts” you when you realized you haven’t don it yet. Put this to good use, to create your business and success will come. Thanks Alesha Drew

    1. This is so true Luis, it literally haunts you when you haven’t done it that day yet because it’s a habit! Perfect description!

  6. Great post!! So many people think that if they just stay motivated they will live their dreams. Nope. Not gonna happen unless they get to work!!!

    Great job Alesha Drew

    it never gets old. Thank you Alesha
    for sharing it in your way.

    1. You are right Martin, it never gets old! A true success principle is timeless indeed!

  10. Hey!!!

    Another great post! I wrote one recently about motivation, because I think people have the wrong idea about motivation or dreams you want to achieve with it…

    And discipline or consistency, are much more useful…

    Thanks

    Jana

    1. Consistency and discipline are definitely more useful Jana.
      It separates the dreamers and the dreamer doers!

    1. I love this analogy Steven! It’s a great way to explain it to the average person as they can all relate to it.

  11. Your so right. I’ve noticed that I’ve gotten better at certain things simply because I’ve done it consistently over time. Thank you Alesha for pointing this out!

  12. Consistency rises out of commitment, I believe. And i agree wholeheartedly that consistency is required for success. As youo say, it becomes habit – no matter what! Great video to go with this message.

  13. Thanks Alesha, I agree about daily habits and work, but it all starts with motivation- you need to have big enough motivation to stick with those daily actions 🙂

  14. Thanks for sharing your experience Paul. This reminds me of when I went to my 10 year class reunion. Everyone was so impressed that I actually did what I said I was going to do with my life. Dance!

  15. This is so true Luis, it literally haunts you when you haven’t done it that day yet because it’s a habit! Perfect description!

  16. Success comes to those that do, and those that do develop success habits that are done consistently. Love the video and the inspiring message Alesha! Motivation gets you going and is not what makes you successful, taking action, daily is what will bring success.
