5 Steps To Move from Mediocre to Motivated

FIRST LADY LAWS OF SUCCESS: If you TRULY desire to achieve the highest and greatest success for your life, you MUST be willing to do whatever it takes to expand your personal capacity so that you can handle the size of your vision, dream and business.

Motivation is the driving force behind life-enhancing change. It comes from knowing exactly what you want to do and having an insatiable, burning desire to do what’s necessary to get it. It keeps your dream on track as it is the power of motivation that keeps you going when the going gets tough.

Action Step #1 Say “NO” to Conformity:
(Guard your toes ‘cause this one might sting a little) Are you operating like a mindless little sheep; way too frightened and timid to pursue your own way? Are you afraid to be seen as “different” from all of the others for fear that they may not like you if you decided to follow your own path? Do you dutifully follow along with all the other sheep because if they’re doing it then that’s how it must be done, right? Seriously, does this describe YOU? Stop for a moment and ask yourself, if you continue to follow along where everyone else goes, doing exactly what everyone else does, you’ll ever get the same mediocre levels of happiness that everyone else gets. Do you want to continue to be so afraid to pursue your dreams that you blindly follow all the other sheep? Or do you want to be a trail blazer, a leader, a change agent who possesses the courage to be your uniquely Divine and powerful Self?

Action Step #2 Start appreciating the value of your time:
This is one of the very first Success Action Items that I give my coaching clients. Time is one of the most precious resources you have and it is also a NON RENEWABLE resource. You can either use it fully or squander it. If you want to create change you’re going to have to examine how you are spending your gift of time. Reduce or eliminate the amount of time that you waste on irrelevancies; ask yourself how many hours a week do you spend watching “mindless” television; gossiping on the phone; reading or watching negative news stories; perpetual weekends spent shopping or visiting an endless line of relatives and friends, just to pass the time? None of these things will help you get what you want and all of them will rob you of your precious & valuable time. Begin to “harvest” and redistribute your time by using it much more effectively; start by investing it in YOU. Remember this: You have a finite amount of time here on Earth. You don’t know how much time you have – no one does. But its how you use the time you have that counts. So make your time count and that means starting from right NOW.

Action Step #3 GET ANGRY!!:
I have the honor of working with Master Sales Coach Eric Lofholm who teaches that “the satisfied man / woman never buys,”  well I believe that the same principle applies in life; “the ‘comfortably uncomfortable’ man / woman never changes.” If you truly want to change your life for the better then you must become so uncomfortable with the status quo and where you are right now, that is ticks you off. Having a blasé attitude towards change isn’t what’s needed and it won’t light the fire under your behind or motive a strong desire within you. So ask yourself: “Why do I want to change?” Is it because you’re FED UP with debts? Are you SICK AND TIRED of living your life like the movie “Groundhog Day,” doing the same thing week in week out? Does the monotony of your job DRIVE YOU CRAZY? Is your life DULL AND PRECITABLE? Are you BORED BEYOND BELIEF by the dull, uninspiring, unhappy people you associate with? THEN GET ANGRY ABOUT IT; and I mean REAL ANGRY! Make a list all of the frustrating, unrewarding, miserable things that you’ve been tolerating that if left unchanged, threaten to make every day until your final days, a boring & dull existence. Once you’ve completed the list, simply ask yourself, “ IS THIS ALL THAT I DESIRE FOR MY LIFE?

Action Step #4 Create a life vision board:         vision board1
When was the last time that you sat quietly and allowed yourself to daydream? What is your vision for your life? I challenge you to create a life vision board and fill it with images of your desired goals. The car you want to own, the city, neighborhood & house you want to live in, the relationships that you desire, the amount of money you want to earn, etc. Others could be pictures of holiday / vacation destinations, trophies, first-class travel tickets, clothes you want to buy, fine restaurants you want to frequent – whatever you can think of that gets your pulse racing.

Action Step #5 Face your fears: Fear is the force with the power to stop you in your tracks and rob you of your dreams – if you let it. Are you going to let this cruel destructive charlatan trample on your dreams, steal your happiness and crush your spirit? Imagine this thought haunting your final days: “I didn’t do the things I wanted because I was too frightened to live”. And by then, it’ll be far too late to conquer fear. Remember, fear is only as real as you make it!! Refuse to let fear spoil your life and start taking action – now!
