We’ve all been there. We want a new habit so badly. We want to feel better, look better, lose weight, etc. We desire that positive change so badly, because we are tired of the way we currently feel.
There’s only one problem with that…desire won’t help you create a new habit!
What do I mean by that? Am I telling you not to desire to get better? Am I saying not to desire a new result?
What I am saying is that desire, while motivating in and of itself, cannot help create the HABIT, which is what will keep you moving in the positive direction! Habits are the things that will keep you moving when you no longer have the desire.
How many people quit a resolution the week after they make it? ALMOST EVERYONE! Why? Because they were only using desire and want to motivate them to action. When the desire goes away, so does the action they were taking.
Instead of using desire, focus on the RESULTS you are looking to achieve! The results will continue fueling you long after the initial desire has passed!
Avoid the most common mistake people make when setting goals. Don’t use desire to drive your results. Instead, use your expected results to fuel your desire, which will in turn get you to move!
Thanks for reading, and please share this with your friends and family so they can enjoy it, too! Heck, they might even get something positive out of it 😉
