Is motivation a real thing?

Is motivation even a REAL THING??! I mean really, do you believe in constant, ongoing motivation? I don’t 😑
.
This week I’ve heard from several ladies struggling with motivation to exercise, to eat healthy, to wake up/rinse/repeat the next day.
.
I think I’ve finally got the answer 👉 motivation is like that fun cousin you only see at holidays. They pump you up, you have a great time together + are in the best mood. But then they leave, and it’ll be awhile before you see them again.
.
So in the meantime, we go back to our ho-hum routine. And that’s where we sit back & wonder why our lives are no different.
.
HERES HOW YOU FIX IT! You replace motivation with habit. It doesn’t matter if I’m not high-on-life-after-a-cousin visit, I wake up & choose to do things that will move me forward in my life. And you just… keep…going.
.
It’s not sexy. You’re not going to see results right away. You’re not going to wake up EXCITED everyday to get your sh*t done. But do it. Every day. If you miss a day, don’t miss the next one. It’s that simple.
.
Because then, one day you’ll turn around and realize YOU’RE the fun, purpose-driven, inspirational cousin everyone wants to see more than just twice a year
