Kick in the Tush Tuesday: Rejoice, Your Motivation Is in the Toilet?

kick in the tush club 1:2 logoThis morning, one of my star clients (you’re all stars) confessed that she was having a difficult time keeping her focus, determination, commitment and motivation up front and central to her day.    Who amongst us hasn’t felt that way from time to time?

With that in mind, I’d like to offer up a quote from Zig Ziglar, who said it best.

People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily. ~ Zig Ziglar


We have to renew our enthusiasm, motivation, Joie de Vie on a daily basis!   Don’t we?

Here, from Our Lady of Weight Loss, the patron saint of permanent fat removal and Janice Taylor, Life, Wellness and Happiness Coach (that’s me) 7 Ways to Motivate!

1.  Have a Vision.

The root of the word motivation is “motive.” The definition of“motive” is “A reason to act.”  You need a reason to act. You need both an external and internal vision of the new you. You need to be moving towards a compelling future! What’s your reason to act?

2.  Be Passionate.


Motivation is not task driven. It’s all about emotion. It’s fire driven. You’ve got to fuel your passion (just like you have to fuel your body and fuel your car!). You have to set yourself a goal that connects to an all consuming desire. What moves you?

3.  Stay Focused.

The more focused you are the more results you’ll be getting. The more results, the more motivated. It’s called the ‘upward spiral.’  Don’t worry about getting dizzy. You’re getting lighter and lighter.  Keep on spiraling, Up, UP, UP!!

4.  Build on Your Successes.

If you permanently remove a pound, be proud. When you drop a size, get fired up. Woo hoo! Keep on going!

5.  Acknowledge All that You Do Well.


We have a tendency to negate our wins by focusing on the minor slips of the day. If you said “No, thank you” four times. “

6.  Rejoice.

What else did you do today that was stupendous? (It could be as simple as filling up a bowl with fresh fruit for the kitchen counter. Filling the room with good energy.)

7.  Positive Messages.

Read positive books, listen to good music, anything with a positive message. Fill your brain with stories of successful people. It will take hold. (Without question, do not watch the news before you go to bed.) Think positive!
