Most self-help gurus would have you believe they jump out of bed motivated and ready to attack life, each day with a positive attitude. Reality is much farther from this fantasy, as everyone’s motivation waxes and wanes from time to time; it is part of the human experience.
Each day there are challenges to our motivation. Beginning with the dreadful feeling, when the alarm clock rings, signaling the start of a new day. Isn’t it amazing how heavy we feel immediately upon waking up, as if lead weights are pulling us down sinking deeper and deeper into our bed; just raising our arm to hit the sleep button can feel like a herculean task. Yes, as we know, real life isn’t purely filled with roses and rainbows.
So, how do we overcome the inertia and muster the energy to get moving? How do we build the momentum of motivation in our lives? How do we get up and stay motivated with the everyday dynamic ups and downs of life?
