If you believe you're on the right track and are feeling stuck merely because you're having trouble motivating yourself, then your challenge is to find a way to light your fuse, charge yourself up, turn yourself on, AND GET BACK ON TRACK.
I remember a time when my job included enrolling people into the program that had transformed my life. I was passionate about what I was doing and was one of the most enthusiastic and successful in that office. I remember that particular morning. I got onto the phone, excited about the results I was going to produce. With each "Sounds great, but no thanks" my energy diminished, and my enthusiasm was soon replaced by disappointment and despair.
My coach came over and told me to leave my desk and go water the plants. What a peculiar request - but that was something I could do. And I did. I got the job done - and realized that accomplishing what I set out to accomplish had worked. I was "back" - energized, turned on, and ready to get to work.
To re-motivate yourself:
>Set a goal that's easy to accomplish - and get it done.
>Create to-do list each day and highlight each item as it gets done.
>Set a goal that's "way out there", something that's so compelling that it gets you into action.
>Revisit your purpose in life and be inspired by what you're here for. If you don't think you have a purpose in life - trust me - each of us does. However, if you don't know what yours could possibly be, get some help and find out. It will change your experience of living.
>Read your mission statement and allow yourself to be touched. (If you don't have a personal mission statement, it's time to write one.) A clear, personal mission statement will provide overall direction. It will help you to clarify your priorities and align your behavior with your vision.
>Go to a place where people are gathered - a place filled with energy. I'm at Starbucks this morning. So many people. So many computers. So much happening.
>Call or meet with an associate or friend who you know can be counted on to help you get back on track.
>>If you haven't anyone who can do that for you, it's time to hire a coach. You deserve to have a partner who you can count on to stand for you even when you are having difficulty standing for yourself.
