How Motivation Kills Success

If you want to make huge changes in your life…

Then you’ll want to avoid the trap of trying to make dozens of changes at once.

I realize the temptation is huge.

You discover subliminals that really work to make changes in your life.

You get super excited and want to change everything about yourself…

Everything that is holding you back…

And you want to change it all, now.

One of the most overlooked mistakes in personal development is over-motivation.

Basically, it’s wanting something so badly, wanting to make changes in yourself and your life so quickly, that you get in your own way and trip over your own feet.

When it comes to money, over-motivation can be an enormous hurdle.

Same goes for physical fitness.

This is why you make one change in your life at a time, instead of 20.

Once you decide to make a specific change, you track it.

And do so in a way that every day becomes a small victory.

Every day you improve a bit more.

Every day you feel successful, like you’re actually making real progress.

You can’t just learn something new and expect mastery over night.

Learning about it is only the first step.

Next, you have to *practice* what you’ve learned.

Study and practice.

Study and practice.

Mastery comes from *doing* the thing you’re learning to do.

Want to be more confident at social events? You need to attend more social events.

Simply listening to a subliminal session and repeating positive affirmations won’t cut it. They’re great for the initial mindset shift and confidence boost, but you need to solidify that new confidence with *experience.*

Want to master a new language? You need to speak that language, more and more each day. Just reading about it won’t get you there.

Want to start a successful business? Studying how to start a business won’t make it happen until you get out there and *do* what you’ve learned… And probably fail, but learn from your mistakes… then practice and try again until you master it.

In short…

Change takes work, and change takes time.

If you spread yourself thin across several changes at once, you won’t have enough time and energy to make serious progress with any one of those changes.

So focus on one thing.

Track your progress daily.

And turn every day into a successful step forward on your journey!

Not sure where to focus your efforts?

Then perhaps getting clear on where you want to go in your life is the place to start.
