Hi Zach, I recently wrote an article about motivation: http://startdoingbusiness.com/staying-mo tivated-leveraging-successes/
I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on it.

this was a fantastic post. I've officially made tomorrow my "get back on track" day since my holiday season is over (don't ever do much on New Years, so no worries there) and I've been really slacking lately. I feel empowered and positive and this article helped solidify WHY I want to get back on track and succeed this time- I want the Wow's, the little dresses, and the confidence, and I want to help motivate others the way others have done for me!
Great reminders. For me, it appears my motivation changes in nature from time to time. Currently, it seems my vanity is winning. I want my clothes to fit correctly and to look good in them. This helps me to feel better in my own skin, which I realize is actually reverse thinking.
These are great tips-thank you. Just what I needed to stay motivated thru this holiday season.

A dress that I've not been able to wear for two years? Come on...

I really like the weeding analogy, 'when it's done, all that's left are beautiful flowers'

My favorite is the "Wow effect." Just to hear those magic words "did you lose weight?" You look great" really spark a fire on the inside and inspire you to keep going, knowing that you are slowly changing and reaching your goals.

After a while, the motivation morphs into Just Do It...the eating right, exercising and taking care of yourself becomes second nature, like breathing...it's a part of you and the way you ARE...I'm sure everyone reaches this point at different times...but have patience, you'll get there...never give up!
This came at the right time for me... I am struggling to find the motivation to get going, as I cant find THE reason, THE goal to ignite my motivation.. So, I am going to write these on my whiteboard, and other tips and ideas as I find them...
