Want to drain your motivation? Be dramatic.

Friday, February 15, 2013

I found this on FB today and wanted to share because it is exactly how I am and I need to work on myself...

If I suffer from just one slip up or a bump in the road it will derail my whole whole whole journey...and then my motivation sinks. Sometimes I need to focus on just the day or even just the next few hours and I know that everything will be alright.

"Want to drain your motivation? Be dramatic. Practice all-or-nothing thinking that says you have to behave in one certain way forever. You don't.

Try a certain behavior for a week.
Or a day.
Or a meal.

Try it on like a hat. If you don't like it, simply try another. It's that easy.

Make your behavior feel doable by setting smaller goals and understanding that just because you feel a little less inspired today doesn't mean you will feel that way tomorrow. Feelings are transient. Don't let them block your success"

I really struggle with the "all or nothing" feelings and something I work on everyday. I love perfection! When I don't get perfection I tend to shut down. It is very difficult for me to work through these feelings....A work in progress!!!
