Motivation is Garbage
Updated: Oct 4, 2022
When COVID started I had a conversation with a friend that really changed my mindset about work.
She was explaining how crazy her work had been, because things were changing every single day.
Together, we realized we needed to stick to our mission, the reason WHY we do what we do.
We decided together, not to focus on WHAT we were doing, but WHY we were doing it.
Focusing on the WHY has kept us fueled and grounded.
Ultimately it has helped us, to help others to the best of our ability.
I may design websites, logos, and manage social media, but WHY do I do this?
I do this to help create a support system for business owners and companies who feel like they’re drowning in their to do lists.
I do this to bring their vision to life, without adding more work to their plate.
There’s a quote that goes, “Those who have a ‘WHY’ to live, can bare with almost any ‘HOW’.”
If you're not familiar with the concept of 'knowing your why' I highly suggest checking out, Michael Jr. over on Youtube. His video: Know Your Why has really inspired me over the years!
I watch a lot of Mel Robbins videos as well and she talks a lot about how motivation is garbage, and I completely agree with her. Click here to watch her video as well, just as inspiring!
Motivation happens in moments of excitement, but it never lasts. The thing that keeps me going is discipline. It keeps me consistent and my WHY is the fuel that keeps me going when I don't feel like it!
What's your WHY?
