A habit keeps us in a comfort zone. We must have a greater reward to establish a new habit. That reward will help us to replace the old habit with a new one which will yield a new and greater reward.

The greater the reward the higher probability that the goal will be achieved.   This desire or passion to do it is our motivation.  Motivation comes from within and that means that you cannot motivate another person. You can, however, help create a spark to ignite their inner fire. That inner fire will drive motivation.

That inner fire or passion is your WHY. If you do not have the WHY then the HOW will not matter. Knowing what motivates you is a key to achievement and knowing how to find motivation in others is a key to leadership. Dwight Eisenhower said that leadership is getting others to do what you want because THEY want to do it. Reach down and find that motivation and bring it to the surface.

What is your passion? If you are not sure why not start by doing a dream inventory. List every dream you have. How many did you list? Keep going until you have 50. Which ones are most important? Why? What will they do for you? How badly do you want these and why?

With dreams in mind do you have that burning want or need and are you emotionally attached to a goal to achieve it or is it something that would just be nice to have. Many people want something but then their subconscious says, “Yeah right that will never happen.” So, they reason, “I will try but I don’t want to set myself up for disappointment if I fail.”   They have created the out. But wait, what are the consequences if you fail? They could be major.

Your desire for gain is only one side of the goal achievement process. Think about a time when you did something to avoid a loss. The threat of loss is, many times, a more powerful motivator than the opportunity for gain. If you have a strong passion for achievement of your goal AND failure is not an option, you are motivated to achieve.   So, find your passion and follow your dream and you know WHY.

THE HOW... consider all possible obstacles and for every obstacle consider all possible solutions. What is the greatest obstacle? In other words, what obstacle if eliminated would greatly facilitate the achievement of your goal? Now, go ahead and set up an action plan to remove the obstacle and achieve.

Goal

This is not going to be easy. It will require changing habits and they are never easy to change. A habit keeps us in a comfort zone. We must have a greater reward to establish a new habit. That reward will help us to replace the old habit with a new one which will yield a new and greater reward. If you are passionate about what you are doing, follow these steps. You will see a difference.

This same process can be used to help others find their motivation and lead them to achievement of goals. Help them find their why, and their benefits and consequences. This will help them find their motivation to achieve their goals. Funny how motivation and goals work.  For a similar post on our website see FOCUS ON WHAT YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE AND WHY.
