Motivation is a tricky thing -- so many of us have a love-hate relationship with motivation. It's the thing that gets us to the gym, it keeps on our diets, and it also helps you be a better you. But what happens when it's not there? What happens when you turn to a motivation speaker and NADA? Motivation speeches are good at the moment you're listening or watching...but when they're over? Motivation is gone...yeah, that fast!One minute you're in tears and swearing to take on the world and once youtube switches to the next video and you're out of THAT world and back in your seat next to Brenda who's eating her tuna fish sandwich at the desk next to you -- motivation in losing 20 lbs is gone and now you want to find a way to get Brenda and her love of canned fish fired.Why does that happen? The video was so good--it even had Oprah in it?
It's because our brains are wired to keep you in "the comfortable" and when we choose to push ourselves to do something outside our comfort zone -- our survival mechanisms kick in and we will rationalize any excuse to keep us in the comfortable. Instead, we say something like, "Well, big is beautiful and I don't have enough money to buy new clothes if I were to lose all that weight. Plus, Thanksgiving is coming up and I know I want extra stuffing in my pants!"
