All of us at one time or another have found ourselves in search of motivation.

The truth is that every habit, every action that we take is preceded by motivation.

We don’t recognize it because we have decided that motivation is a good thing and so it must feel good. Not true. Getting up in the morning and going to work out may not feel good but it’s motivation. Putting that cookie down may not feel good but it’s motivation.

Action is preceded by motivation on either the conscious or the subconscious side. It is the reason, the rationale, the impulse that tells you to “do it”.

What we need to do is move motivation to the conscious side of our mind so that we can summon it when we need it to do that next needle moving thing in our life or our business.

Here are 3 practices that will enable you to summon motivation when you need it.

1. Raise your level of ambition

Motivation begins with our mind’s conception of the future. We must believe that the future will be better. That means that we have to decouple from the past and not allow the past or even the present circumstances to cage us. Don’t limit your ambition because of the expectations of others. Today’s efforts create the future.

Every morning raise your ambition by thinking of the abundance that you want, see yourself doing things with great skill, and envision yourself living the best most perfect day.

2. Develop Positive Expectancy

If we don’t think that we can grow into the person who can handle life at a higher level, we are not going to take action.

Motivation and action won’t take place unless we expect the outcome that we want and believe that the future we envision is possible. To do that you have to believe that you are capable now or that you can grow into the person that you need to be in order to create the result that you want to achieve.

If you don’t believe that it is possible, you become discouraged and lack energy; so, you cannot endure the hardships that come as you grow and challenge yourself to reach greater heights.

Help get yourself on track by breaking out your journal. Self-awareness is crucial when making changes. When you hit a snag ask yourself, “What do I believe about my future in this moment?” It’s okay to feel defeated or fearful. Acknowledge the feeling and then make a list of three specific things that you are going to do in order to get unstuck. Expect that you can figure it out.

Talk to others about how you believe that you can manifest this and the steps that you can take to make it happen. Get feedback and support.
