Find Your Motivation

by Lisa Druxman, M.A., Founder of Stroller Strides

It all starts with motivation. Getting in shape, being a good parent, having a happy marriage. These results come from your motivation. Your motivation leads to your actions. Your actions lead to your success. Tap in to your motivation and you will reap results you never realized possible.

We are so busy “doing” that we sometimes forget why we are doing things. When was the last time you took a breath and thought about what you want your life to look like? What’s your purpose? Be open and picture what you want the end result to look like. You’ve probably wanted these things before (great body, happy children, etc.), but have you been motivated enough to create a plan and put energy in to that area of your life?

When you are motivated, you will have energy to put in to your goals whatever they may be.  Here are some tips to help you get motivated.

1) Create a clear picture of your desired result. How will you feel? What will it add to your life?

2) Get inspired. Read, watch, and listen to role models who have done what you set out to do.

3) Create a baby step plan. Success begets success. Create a plan where each day you take a baby step towards your goal.

4) Be public about your goal. Whether you blog or just choose to tell a friend, it gives you accountability.

5) Focus on the solution. Don’t look at challenges as problems. Every challenge has a solution which you can overcome!
