A simple motivational for you awesome followers!

So you’ve figured out what you want to do, you’ve seen other succeed before and you want do the same.
Now you need to take action, but you probably also need to gain some motivation first.


Let’s be honest, without doing something, you’ll hardly get what you want in life. The feeling of stuck that you experience when you are starting out is normal, and every successful person has come through it in the beginning.
Fortunately, once you learn how to deal with that feeling, things will start to get done, and the results will come. It’s like moving a giant ball, it’s hard in the beginning, but it gets easier and easier as you get going.
So are you ready to learn how to be motivated and start to get things done?
Here’s how to do it.


  1. Make a plan. Start from where you are now, and write down the steps you’ll need to take to reach your dream. Don’t worry about creating the perfect plan, you’ll adjust it along the way. Some people prefer to do this step the other way around, by starting at the end and moving backwards until where they are now, that’s fine too. If you have trouble thinking at what should be your next step, write down the thing that you think would be more likely to push you closer to your goal.

  2. Reinforce your thoughts. Repeating motivational quotes is a powerful tool to develop your do habit. I usually repeat a few phrases in the morning, or when I get stuck. I’ve found that once you find a quote that makes sense to you, it’s hard to not move accordingly. Some of my preferred ones are: If you try, then there’s a change it might work. If you don’t, then it’s guaranteed it won’t workWe are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.Am I inventing things to avoid the important?
  3. Commit publicly. An easy way to get a boost of motivation is to commit your goals publicly. For example when I started my pushups challenge I knew it was going to be hard for me, so I announced it on my blog. When you show people that you do what you say no matter what happens, you’ll gain respect and trust. You can either commit on your blog, or with your family and friends.
  4. Just get started. Don’t focus on the whole task from the beginning. Take the first step and motivation will come. Leo teaches us this concept very well. I’ve learned from him that when I have to go out for a morning run, I just have to put my running shoes and get outside of the door, by that time I’ll be already highly motivated to do the rest. This is true for virtually every other task or activity, as it’s easier for your brain to focus on a little thing and then get going.
  5. Adjust along the way. It has been said that the best way to learn something is by doing it, and it’s true. No matter how hard you worked in your initial plan, unexpected events will happen, and you’ll have to adjust your plan accordingly. You’d be surprised by how many businesses start with an initial idea and then make a fortune in a very different area.
  6. Do less. Don’t get trapped by working too much. The goal is to eventually do less. You have already heard of the 80/20 rule, now it’s time to apply it to your business. Get rid of unimportant tasks and focus on what truly matters. Remember that doing something unimportant well does not make it important, and being busy is a form of laziness. Learn from your experiences and do more of what provides the greatest results.













Sometimes it’s easy to procrastinate and forget that doing stuff is what truly matters. Don’t let that happen to you. Start today working on your dreams, you only need to take one step at a time.
Life reserves awesome things for those who are willing to create something, so create.
