Reading a motivational book or listening to a motivational speech… we feel it…
That adrenaline rush…
That powerful feeling…
That feeling that greatness can and will be achieved…
Anything is possible! Everything is possible!
Life feels SO unbelievably good!
The motivational industry is huge! It gives us a high, makes us feel so good, we can take in the WORLD!
But wait… we actually haven’t done anything.
We listen to these speeches, we read these words, we feel all the right feelings but, nothing ever materializes.
Could it maybe, just maybe be because we’re not actually looking to get motivated to actually do something but, we’re actually just addicted to feeling motivated?
Let’s step back and really think about it. It makes us feel so good to be motivated. We end up thinking that just feeling this way we’re being productive when in reality… we’ve just been sitting on our asses consuming and getting high off these feelings instead of actually doing what it is we want to do.
It does feel good and sometimes something motivational can spark something inside of us but… it’s like anything else… it can feel too good and it becomes something that holds us back, it’s doing more harm than good.
So, let’s have a mini intervention with ourselves. No 12 Step Program… just be honest and just stop. Let’s be productive and get things done.
