Many people think Motivation is something you either have or you don’t. The truth is, motivation comes and goes just like happiness and the ups and downs in ours lives. Just like a positive vantage point fosters happiness, our habits can cultivate and sustain motivation.
I have heard friends, family and clients say “I am just not motivated.” Although Motivation creates momentum, habits sustain that drive. Motivation is a choice and can be developed and fostered by consistent habits.
A powerful section of my journey involved losing sixty-five pounds and developing a strong passion for nutrition, fitness and a healthy lifestyle. I was very motivated when I signed up for my first sprint triathlon in 2010. However, it was my habits that lead to my overall success. You see anyone can head to the gym when they are super excited about working out. To this day, I still make sure that the days I don’t feel like working out are the days I don’t skip.
Nate Green in his book “Scrawny to Brawny” said, “habits make us, and habits break us.” I encourage you to intentionally create habits that keep you moving forward with both passion and purpose.

We are indeed the conduit for source to flow through and onto others. By reaching for a better thought during any negative emotion or situation we create increased awareness of our power to change our emotional state. Abraham Hicks describes it as reaching for that high flying disk. This doesn’t mean by no stretch of the imagination you should always feel good and only have positive emotions. There are no bad emotions but we can let the negative one’s flow through us without judgement then move onto to a better feeling thought.
This morning when I thought about the importance of elevating your vibration I was grateful for the guided meditation I’d done last night before bed. I found this great meditation on Gina Spriggs website. I met Gina while attending a three day Click Retreat in Asheville, North Carolina hosted by Christine Kane. I instantly noticed her authentic strong presence. I had the privilege of spending time with her during the event. We chatted lots and connected instantly and shared a few meals at local restaurants with some of her friends. Among many other things, Gina helps heart centered Intuitives expand their gifts and create successful, life supporting businesses.

You may have noticed many times that when you are having an awesome day and feeling full of energy, good things happen. When we are aligned to this high flying disk, we are contributing to others in a positive way. People connect to this positive vibe and you will have random strangers smile at you or have an unexpected uplifting conversation.
We have so many auto pilot habits in our lives that have been developed over time. Why not build on the good ones and slowly remove the negative ones. Develop a habit of always reaching for a better feeling thought and over time amazing things will follow.

It is a simple concept that we hold the power to our own happiness. The recurring disconnect is that we’ve been programmed overtime to be less connected to our true selves. Without realizing, we start to develop our habits, thoughts and actions on outsides influences and belief systems. In addition to this we also start to care more about what we perceive other people “may think” over how we feel. The longer we live in fear and act based on outside influences the further we drift from who we are.
Many people unfortunately are unhappy but have no idea why. They often blame their current dissatisfaction on a series of events, people or circumstances. Here’s the thing… if you paint yourself a victim all your life, you will indeed live the life of a victim. Every time we put the control outside of ourselves we give away our personal power.
The good news is we all have the power to break these negative patterns. If we learn to look inward and take responsibility for our life and happiness, things will quickly shift. I have written several times about the importance of accepting where we are before moving forward because it is an important part of making positive shifts in your life. When we realize our thoughts becomes things and we can control our thoughts… A + B = C ha-ha We CAN create our own reality.
Complaining will give you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere. It will actual attract more of the things you don’t want into your life. So what are you waiting for? Take back your power by taking full responsibility for where you are and fully accept it. Happiness is a choice, so why not decide to be happy? It is okay to want more in life, but appreciate what you have while you work towards what you want.
There’s never been a better time to “Take Control and Live Fully”
