On the Mats: Motivation
Finding it hard to get motivated? Come on this journey and let’s go and find out how we can easily get motivated in your business.
Hi all, Nathan McDonald here for another ‘On the Mats’ episode. Guys, I just want to talk to you about motivation. And, you know what? You’ve probably noticed I’ve got the bush backdrop here. And am I motivated to go for a 7K run through this bush? Uh, no, not really, but you know what? I’m going to really enjoy doing it at the end. I’m going to look forward to the results and how I feel at the end. And this is a problem that business owners get; they don’t get motivated to do something in their business, but reality is – guess what the end result will be? Once it’s actually done, it’s like, ‘Oh, glad it’s actually done now.’
So this is the thing: don’t try and get motivated in your business for anything; just don’t try and get motivated. Motivation is really the last point – or – you’ll find motivation comes when you just start. And this is very important to understand. So if you’re lacking motivation, then guess what? Just start. I wish I had a dollar for every time a student had said to me, ‘You know what? I didn’t really want to come to class tonight, but I’m really glad that I did.’ You know, this is the thing that you’ve got to look at in your business. What you’ve got to do is just start, and motivation comes after action – so, action first, then motivation. Most people get it around the wrong way; they try and find motivation to do something, and then take the action. Well, you know what guys? You’ll probably never get anything done. So what we’ve got to look at: make sure you just start something, or start that task. And I’m going to throw a challenge to you on this episode: I want to challenge you to write the number one thing that you’ve been procrastinating about in your business. I want you to write it down now, and I want to see you start that, and watch the motivation come. And if you want help with that challenge, please let us know. Our Black Belt instructors here will be happy to come help you out and implement whatever you’re trying to do.
So, guys, that’s it for me. The point to remember: Motivation comes second; action comes first. So guys, I hope you enjoyed it. If you did enjoy, please make sure you click the ‘Like’ button or add a comment. Let us know when you feel that, you know, you’ve had lack of motivation and what you need to get out of it to share those, share what you’ve done there.
So that’s it for me. My name is Nathan McDonald, I’m an Aussie, my passion is business, and my message is global. Have a great day guys!
