3 Questions for Getting Unstuck and Motivated to Succeed

Are you struggling with procrastination? Is there something on your to-do list that you keep putting off? Having trained as a life coach, I often meet with clients who are struggling with motivation: there’s something they need to do, but they just can’t manage to get motivated enough to do it.

My first question is always: Is it something you really want to do, or is it something that you feel you should do? Most of us live in a world where it can be challenging to separate what we really want to do from the things we think that we should do. We fill our to-do list with things that we ought to do, or need to do, often without asking ourselves whether we really want to do them or not.

Does this sound familiar?

Authentic Happiness

A HUGE thanks to all who participated in The Authentic Happiness Summit yesterday. It was absolutely amazing, truly beyond my expectations. I really enjoyed the day, and if you were there, I hope you did, too!

Stay tuned in the next days, as I am planning regular posts with activities for you to do at home, based on my talk yesterday.

If you weren’t there yesterday, here’s a preview:

So often I meet people who are feeling stuck in life: they know something isn’t right, but they don’t even know what’s wrong. They want to make changes, but they don’t know what changes to make or where to start. I know what it’s like: I’ve been there and I’ve felt that. I want to help people find their way out of that situation.

Are you wandering through your life? Do you find yourself stuck in a routine? Living on auto pilot? Just surviving? If you’re unhappy with the way things are going, if you’re feeling stuck in life, or if you really want to get to the root of what gives you that feeling that something’s wrong, then it may be time to start asking yourself some questions.

Be clear about the following three questions: Who am I? Where am I? Where am I going? These questions apply to every single human being, and they apply to all aspects of our lives. If you don’t know who you are, where you are, and where you’re going, then you have no perspective. You won’t know how to prioritise, or how to get things done and when. If you do know the answer to these three questions, you’ll travel through life with a lot of clarity. You’ll be clear on your priorities, you’ll be clear on what you want and don’t want, and you’ll be deeply happy. You already have all the resources you need to answer these questions. You just need to get started.

Ready? Then get yourself a notebook or journal where you can record your observations and answers to the upcoming activities.

Give yourself credit

At the end of my previous time management post, I reminded you to congratulate yourself on the things you do well. Time management, or better yet, priority management, is a skill that requires practice, and we may not succeed in accomplishing all of our tasks in the beginning. So it’s important that we give ourselves credit for the things that do get done.

Again, the important thing is to set priorities and work on the high priority tasks first. That way, you finish the tasks that are most important to you. I have a few basic tasks that recur on a regular (almost daily for some) basis that are important to me, and to help myself realize exactly what I’m getting done, I have a very simple motivation system that you actually might find a little amusing. It works for me, because it helps me quickly see that I’m working on the important things.
