Motivation + Desire = Results
I recently completed a course in frontline management and one of the things the teacher said that stuck out for me was Motivation + Desire = Results. So basically you cant have one without the other if you want to succeed.
I certainly have the desire but often lack the motivation to get the results. I have done many things to try and keep myself motivated including hanging one of my favourite dresses in my walk in so i see it everyday; putting skinny photos of me on the fridge; setting goals by events that are coming up etc etc. I will go good for a while doing this but then get on the scales and the numbers don't go down and so I say well whats the point in putting in all that effort for that tiny weight loss or none at all.
I do also have the added motivation that my blood pressure is borderline and I might need to start taking medication for this sooner rather than later which I would rather not do but may not be avoided as it is also hereditary. But then on the otherside my thyroid doesn't function properly so I struggle to lose the weight.
So my question is how do you motivate yourself to keep you going and get the results you are after.
