Combine Mindfulness with Motivation and Achieve Holistic Success
Do you think you could do more if you were more motivated? Do you get excited about new projects or resolutions, only to quit after a few days? Do you find it hard to focus on your goals? Do you constantly compare yourself to other people and end up feeling frustrated? Do you have problems with getting things done or sticking to things you know you should be doing? If so, no worries, I have been there myself. For years, I have struggled with lack of motivation. I could not create new habits. It wasn’t until I learned how to combine mindfulness with motivation that I was able to turn my never ending to-do lists and anxiety attacks into easy and doable action plans that helped me trick my brain, take action (even when I was not motivated), move forward, be consistent, and get results. In this article, you will discover a very simple motivational technique that will help you keep on track, even when you have a bad day (we all do sometimes) without feeling overwhelmed.
