Really important ‘motivation’ message I want to share…
I believe Motivation Isn’t Enough.
A lot of people get flashes of motivation (especially during this time, when we set New Year’s goals & commitments), but our motivation wavers (naturally, because we’re human). Some days we just wake up and we don’t have it. We’re in a slump.
After 4 weeks of hitting the gym hard, working on our startup, trying to get a new job, reading the Bible, meditating, or creating content, what keeps us going when our motivation falters?
A lot of people ask, ‘How can I stay motivated?’
This is the wrong question to ask – because motivation is simply an emotion. Emotions are transient – they come and go.
Yes, motivation might help get you started but what you need to continue doing whatever it is you want to do in life (lose weight, gain muscle, make more money, spend more time with your kids, become a better human being, get a better job, explore the world, startup a new business, become a professional athlete, be paid to create YouTube videos, etc.) is COP – Clarity of Purpose.
COP means how clear are you on WHY you’re doing what you’re doing. Next-level why.
That’s what I talk about in this video. It’s 6:30 but man it’s fire.
I hope you consider this message next time you’re ‘motivated’ to achieve a goal – enjoy.
