Motivation Begins with a Decision
Can’t Seem To Stay Motivated?
Studies show that the brain works in a protective way, resistant to change
The problem isn’t you, it’s that our brain is programed to locate rewards and escape pain or discomfort. Realizing that any new goals set that include changes to our behavior or thinking-patterns will naturally be resisted is the first step in understanding why people easily lose motivation.
Rewiring Your Brain
Think of it like shifting gears in the car manually
Now that we know the brain wants to play it safe, i.e. “short term satisfaction”, we must plan an attack on it from another angle. We must override the small & momentary rewards with something bigger & better. Setting a goal that will require true hard work & effort is the only way to win this fight against the mighty short term satisfaction devil on our shoulder.
Set a Goal
The brain is stimulated by achievement, releasing dopamine creating a sensation of pleasure
So dopamine plays a key role in keeping us focused on our goals and motivating us to attain them, rewarding our attention and achievement by elevating our mood. That is why we feel good when we work towards our goals. It’s this feeling that, when unlocked, has the power to override our previous habits and create our new positive way of life.
