How to Get Motivated Now

Episode description

I heard Jeff Haden get interviewed on the You Wanna Do What? podcast with Monica Rivera. Jeff is the author of the book The Motivation Myth: How High Achievers Really Set Themselves Up to Win which can get for free by going to if you decide to cancel your subscription you can keep the book (or any other book) for free.

Motivation Does Not Come Before Action

So many times we think we need the motivation to take action. Jeff points out that it is the other way around. When we take action, and we do the right things, and we see the results, THAT motivates us to keep Going. 

You Don't Need A Dump Truck Full of Motivation

When you think, "I need enough motivation to loss 100 lbs." That is not true. The only motivation you need is enough motivation to make your next meal a healthy one. You need enough motivation to make the next day a day filled with good choices. When you TAKE THESE ACTIONS, the results is motivation. You feel like you accomplished something. People who achieve hard goals over a long period of time did not work on ONE goal, they worked on tiny little goals that upon completion motivated them to NOT QUIT.

I Really Like This Book So Far

I'm only through the first chapter, but I'm really enjoying the book so far.
