Struggling with motivation? Sorry, but motivation is only temporary, but you can develop discipline. Here are 3 ways I stayed motivated to drop 30 pounds.

At the end of 2013, I hit my rock bottom. I had two kids, I was working from home, making very little money and had a shaky marriage. I had no friends and very little family I could count on. My health was declining, I had no time for myself and I had been struggling with depression on and off for over 5 years.

I needed to make some changes and make them fast.

I stepped into 2014 like I was about to make something happen – but I didn’t know what.
There is a difference between motivation and discipline.

I hear a lot of my clients and potential clients will ask me how do you get motivated? How do you stay motivated?

Motivation is only temporary. 80% of people give up on their New Year’s Resolutions by February 19. 6 weeks into the New Year.

I think it is important to set goals. But let’s be honest. Motivation only lasts a couple hours or a few days. Then, we sink back into old habits, old mindsets and old comfort zones.

The key to hitting your goals is to reverse engineer – make sure you are not biting off more than you can chew. Then, creating daily habits that supports your goals.

It is so easy to set a goal – but it is another thing altogether to change your habits and your lifestyle to reach that goal.

In a matter of a few months, I dropped 30 pounds, got my energy back and started making extra money on the side.

How I did it was super simple – but not easy.

I had UBER focus. I knew where I needed to be and I was laser focused on getting there. I knew taking control of my health was goal #1 to getting my life back on track.

1. I set new goals every month. I was constantly upping myself and going bigger. I was my only competition.

2. I had a daily focus list. I had 3-4 things I focused on every day, until it became second nature. If you want to change something in your life, it starts with something you do daily.

3. Every month was a fresh start. It didn’t matter if I hit my goal from the month before. I started over every single month.
