Where’s Your Motivation Now?

Many of us marvel how quickly resolve dips and dissipates. This includes those wishing to make a change as well as motivational coaches who scratch their heads and wonder, “Why am I not succeeding with my clients?” First it is important to distinguish between two terms, inspire and motivate. No one motivates you, but you. However, a life coach, trainer, guru, or physician can inspire you to implement goals based on your personality and learning style.

Recall to mind when you attended school: Teachers used different methods to convey the material in the curriculum like, auditory, visual, hand/eye coordination, threats, rote memory, and creative discovery. They presented a varied menu to reach different types of students. One or two styles probably worked best for you. Therefore you might have a proclivity to a specific trigger which is necessary to make you move forward and accomplish your goals, but unfortunately is not being utilized.

Are you aware of the different motivational styles – which one (s) strikes a chord with you?
Everyone has a unique “learning print.” If you are not achieving the goals which truly resonate for you, perhaps you need to reflect on what once motivated you to achieve sustainable and quantifiable results. Match your learning style to your will power and consider choosing for your muse a cheerleader, an efficiency expert, a philosopher, a support group or a Marine drill sergeant to inspire you to just do it already.
