S03E07: Why you don’t feel motivated enough (and how to change that)

In this episode, I explain why you don’t feel as motivated as you want to and how to get more drive and motivation into your life.

WHY
Our brains needed to get us to take action… use dopamine to drive us
Dopamine levels are impacted by various factors
When dopamine is low we struggle with motivation

Mistakes we make
We fail to make our goals exciting
We try to achieve things in one go
We forget our why
We get bored and revert to the easiest action
We make excuses and find ‘reasons’
We try and push through without any rewards

Strategies to change it
Remember the exciting vision
Break it down
Proofs of progress
Make it a big deal
Commit to the change
Set a date
Reward yourself for action
