The Second Thing You Need Is Self Motivation.

January 9, 2012

No one can motivate you!  The only place where you can find motivation is within yourself. What I can do is help you to discover YOUR BIG WHY. Your personal, deep down, emotional reason that will give you the strength you need to move out of your comfort zone and achieve your goals.

An exchange with one of my clients went something like this:

ME:           “What is your number one goal for your business right now?”

CLIENT:    “I want more customers”.

 M:             “Why do you want more customers?”

C:               “Because I want to grow my business”.

M:               “Why do you want to grow your business?”

 C:               “Because I want to make more profit”.

M:               “Why do you want to make more profit?”

C:                “So I can expand my business”.

 M:             “Why do you want to expand your business?”

C:                “So that I can employ more people”.

M:               “Why do you want to employ more people”?

C:                 “So that I don’t have to work in the business myself”.

M:                “Why don’t you want to have to work in your business yourself?”

C:                 “So that I can have more free time”.

M:                “Why do you want to have more free time”?

C:                  “So that I can spend more time with my son and daughter”.

M:                “Why do you want to spend more time with your son and daughter?”

C:                  “Because my father worked seven days a week to provide for his

                       family and then died of  a heart attack before I was six;

                       now I can’t even remember him”.                                    

As my client went on to describe a lifetime without his father he became more and more emotional.

THIS was his WHY!

He was passionate about enjoying more time with his family because his father wasn’t there for him.
