Sustain Motivation Over the Long Haul

“Do you lack motivation?”

Does it grow tougher to quit smoking, to start that diet, to workout, get projects done or follow through on goals and decisions? If so, it’s time to evaluate your self-motivation.

Motivation through negative self-talk, like, “I am so fat, what’s the point in dieting,” “I have to do this whether I like it or not,” or “I will never be loved until after I reach this goal,” may get you started, but it won’t sustain you in the long run.

Motivation for the long haul comes when you learn to truly appreciate what you have already accomplished and value your previous successes. When you embrace this frame of mind, you’ll find you’re internally motivated to accomplish more. And, that can change motivation into accomplishment!
