the psychological feature that arouses an organism to action toward a desired goal; the reason for the action; that which gives purpose and direction to behavior;I have a hard time finding motivation. How about you? Being active and eating well are difficult for me, only because I lack motivation. The physical act isn't so bad, in fact it usually makes me feel better and has other positive results.
Sometimes, watching other people take action towards a goal gives me a bit of motivation. Like watching Rocky 3. Sometimes, watching a good musical motives me to get up and dance and sing and do my own version of the film just for Maverick. Sometimes, a really great quote read over and over a few times can get me stirred up. A photo of what my teeth would look like if I didn't start brushing better worked as a motivator for a few months. Sometimes money is the reason for my action - sometimes.
I have yet to find something that sticks. This poster: Not helpful.
There was a time in my life when I was full of dreams and inspiration and I had motivation that I didn't even know of. I was going to change the world! Then I graduated from high school and the world wasn't anything like what they told me it was.
"I wanna run through the halls of my high school/ I wanna scream at the top of my lungs!"
I've started reading this book. Faith-based Fitness. The first couple chapters sounded like there was some great motivation in there somewhere. I just couldn't seem to find it. Maybe it's in the last few pages. Meanwhile, I'm gonna keep on keeping on.
Someday, I WILL find my happy thought. I will fly!
