How to build motivation momentum

Illuminated highway at night with light trails

After working out one night I realized that, during the workout, as I went through the workout I kept giving myself spurts of motivation. And with each exercise spurt, I was able to convince myself that I could accomplish anything. I just realized that I’ve dine that for myself as i was working to achieve lots of goals.

There are so many obstacles that arise in life that even for the most accomplished person overcoming the next obstacle can seem very challenging or even insurmountable. My experience, however, is thatmotivation is just like muscle memory. When you haven’t worked out for a long time, your body has the ability to recall the way it used to perform. I think the same is true for life. Your spirit can believe that it can overcome any obstacle if it doesn’t have to think back very far in the past to remember what it was like to overcome an obstacle. I like to call this motivation memory.

The easiest way to create motivation memory is to have frequent moments of motivating yourself and overcoming the obstacle you face. Here are 3 ways you can do small things that will help remind you that you must overcome obstacles and that you can do anything you decide to do.

1. Make your bed everyday. There are so many things in one say that we each need to get done every day. So many that we can easily feel like a failure if we don’t accomplish at least one thing. If you make your bed every day, not only do you have a very inviting place to rest at night, you have visual recognition that you got one thing done today already. This will likely have a ripple effect in your life. Making your bed can encourage you to do a tidy up sweep before you go to bed, which can encourage you to cook dinner the next night, which will help you reach your weekly weight goal which will help achieve your large goal of true weight management and maintenance. These are just examples but the effects are the same no matter what goals you have.

2. Workout. During your workouts, encourage yourself to do three more reps or rest when you get to the top of that hill in spin class. But also in that moment, remind yourself that just like you will give the workout your best you will give your next big obstacle your best. I did this the entire summer I was studying for the New York State Bar exam. Each workout was a dress rehearsal of me pushing past the obstacle of taking the exam and passing.

3. Daily visuals. I have a large decal on the wall opposite my bed that says “Faith makes things possible…not easy.” I have the same quote on the lock screen of my phone. This is a constant reminder of two things. First, I have to do my part and second, faith will insure that the goal that seems impossible will actually become possible…if I do my part first. So each and every day I’m both reminded of the importance of my effort and the power of my faith in God and myself. (Note you don’t have to have faith the same things that i believe. I just encourage you to get to know the higher power that you believe controls the Universe (Allah, Jehovah, Buddha, or established Scientific Principle etc.)

Ultimately you’ll be most successful if you execute all 3 of these suggestions. If you don’t want to jump in all at once, start with making your bed.  Once you see how that makes you feel, move on to the second and third suggestions. There’s no downside to giving this a try. The worst that can happen is you have a neater – looking bedroom, be more fit and more encouraged! Give this a try and let me know how it works out.
