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.
