How serious are you to turn you negative motivations around, or start new positive motivations? Most people will make a half-hearted stab at chaning. They’ll buy a motivation poster or book ... and that’s as far as it goes.
But a book unread, a CD unplayed, a Poster not regularly studied, isn’t a great dream of change, but it will always be just that, a dream.
Motivation really comes down to willingness. For those who are willing to sit on a sofa all day and not accomplish anything other than gaining a couple pounds, they will do just that. The true way to overcome laziness, to committing to change, is overcoming your own willingness.
Many motivational speakers have found this truth. For some motivational speakers the way they go about overcoming willingness is to get their audience in a state of urgency where they feel they don’t have enough time to do everything they want. Once the audience gets away from these emotional manipulators and the effect wears off after a couple days they find themselves back on the couch thinking they have no hope.
Another more successful way of overcoming laziness is to bring beliefs into play. For many, those who believe in change enough will find themselves motivated to do just what they believe in. If the audience can change their belief in themselves and their own ability to accomplish things then laziness can be overcome and defeated.
The problem for most is they do not truly believe they can accomplish things on their own. We have lots of dreams and ambitions, but not a solid idea of how to do the things we want. The biggest problem facing changing people’s mindsets is they don’t believe in themselves deep down. For those with this problem they need some help in another area, which is often the case for the highly unmotivated. Laziness is a side affect of many inner problems so the most important thing to do is find the source. For those who simply are lazy, most will say fake it till you make it, but until you truly believe in yourself then you cannot overcome laziness.
You need to ask yourself if you believe in yourself. What do I truly believe about myself? Ask yourself these questions and find the source of your own laziness. Once you overcome this first step the road to change can begin, and what a road that can be.
