Why waiting to feel motivated? Choice is the only motivation you need.

.

Here it is, the cold hard truth….

There is no secret to motivation.

Motivation is defined as a general desire or willingness of someone to do something. Motivation is the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.

Motivation is a real psychological state of being and definitely can influence our results in life, but only if we allow them to. Too often times we use motivation, or really lack thereof, as an excuse as to why we are not doing or accomplishing what we desire, or honoring our responsibilities at work or home.

How many times have you thought or said, “I should have (insert anything here), but I wasn’t motivated.” Or, “I started (X), but I lost motivation to follow through.” Or, “I have no motivation for (X).”

We all have. You are not alone.

For me, motivation is an afterthought in many instances, and at times, a bonus in my day. Personally, if I was to wait until I was motivated, hardly anything in my life would get accomplished. I do not possess a desire to do many things that still need to get done. I am sure you can relate to that, but do you still do them anyways? I do, and it’s because of one thing…

Choice, and everyone has the power of choice.

We make choices, practically every second of the day. It is our choices, not our level of motivation that propels us forward to what we desire. Now, I can’t lie, when I want to do something it’s a lot easier to get it done, but I accomplish just as much that I do not desire to do, and that is because I choose to. I want this for you.

You always have a choice to take action.

You always have a choice to do something or not do something. You always have a choice about how you think, feel, and behave in any moment. Choose to get things done. Choose to accomplish something on your task list. Choose to take action towards your goals every day.

MindTrip MagazineYou don’t need to be motivated to physically do it.

What’s the difference between you and that other person? The one you who gets it all done, the one who gets a promotion, the one whose ideas are heard at the office, the one who spent the weekend on a get-away, the one who works and attends every single school function for their child(ren)…

The choices they make. That is the only difference. They are not more motivated than you. They are not better than you. They are just like you… except they choose to not allow motivation to dictate their lives.

Do you want to get a promotion? Choose to think, feel, and behave like someone who is going to get a promotion. Speak up in meetings. Put together a presentation that has the “wow” factor. Build connections. Just take action regardless of how “motivated” you are. That is the power of choice.

Do you want to be a more effective leader? Choose to learn how to be, and implement what you learn. Choose to give and receive feedback. Choose to learn and grow every day. That is the power of choice.

Do you want to have better relationships? Choose to take action and make it happen. Join a club or an organization. Spend time and nurture the relationships that have meaning to you. Ignore the “I’m too tired to be motivated to meet up with people once a week,” and just do it. That is the power of choice.

Do you want to stop feeling rushed in the morning? Choose to set your alarm a half an hour earlier, and when your alarm goes off, choose to get up and not press snooze. You just created another 30 minutes in your morning, and decreased the rushing. That is the power of choice.

Do you want to be present at the office at home? Do you feel like you lack the motivation to be your best with both? Feeling too tired to walk into that first meeting on your game? Feeling too distracted with work to show up fully present for your kid(s)? Choose to be present in the moment you are in. Choose to be the best boss or employee while you are at work, and then choose to be the best Mom/Dad when you get home. That is the power of choice.

Do you see how there is no secret to motivation?

Motivation is a great task enhancer and it does make things easier, but it’s not necessary to get anything done. Choose what you want, need, or desire to do, and do it.

Choice is the only motivation you need.

When you make choices on a daily basis that are aligned with what you want to get done, need to get done, and desire to get done, motivation is an afterthought. Motivation becomes your success, your accomplishments, your pride, your confidence, and your highest potential.

The secret to motivation? There is no secret.

Choose to be a doer; use motivation as a bonus.

Excerpts – How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance

 

.

Tom Brady has been preaching about the benefits of his holistic lifestyle regimen for quite some time now, and soon enough, he’ll be sharing his practices with an audience larger than just Rob Gronkowski.

Brady’s new book, The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance, is dedicated to informing readers about the benefits of his seemingly effective, albeit odd, habits.

Covering topics like muscle pliability, strength training, and nutrition, The TB12 Method wants to give readers the opportunity to maximize their potential and reach new heights of success, à la the 40-year-old Super Bowl champion. Along with workouts and recipes, it features first-person advice and anecdotes from Brady himself. The 295-page, heavily illustrated performance guide is scheduled to be released on September 19. Below you can find 12 excerpts from the highly promoted “athlete’s bible.”

On high school

“As an athlete, I was a late bloomer. I also wasn’t someone who put a lot of effort into school, though I was a B, B-plus student who did well in math, statistics, and finance. The thing is, I never really applied myself to academics, since reading books would have taken time away from my much greater passion and time commitment for sports.”

On the origins of TB12 Method

“Sometime during the 2004 training season, one of my teammates, Willie McGinest, saw me taking time off practice and took me aside … Willie had a certain aura and charisma about him—he was “the Godfather” of the locker room—and he’d always been like an older brother to me. Seeing what was happening, Willie suggested I meet with his body coach, who at the time was Alex Guerrero. Without that meeting, the TB12 Method would never have come to exist.”

On the impact playing football has on his body

“Playing football for a living was like getting into a car crash every Sunday—a scheduled car crash—and I began developing a whole new understanding of what I was putting my body through every week, and the amounts of trauma my body was experiencing.”

On motivation

“I want to play until my mid-forties, and I realize that requires a focused, disciplined approach. I’ve always been more motivated to target and improve on my deficiencies, and I still am. Coach Belichick says, ‘You pay the price in advance,’ and a teammate of mine liked to say that ‘The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.’”

On pliability

“Pliability is the name Alex and I give to the training regiment he and I do every day. Using his hands and elbows, Alex performs targeted, deep-force muscle work to lengthen and soften every muscle of my body, as I rhythmically contract and relax that muscle. We almost always focus on my entire body, unless on area takes up more of our time.”

On weight training

“Alex always says, ‘For long-term peak performance, you can’t train slow and move fast.’ Over a short window of time it may be possible, but lifting heavy weights and moving fast at the same time is not very sustainable. And it’s certainly not sustainable if you want to maintain optimal pliability. Maybe younger athletes with natural pliability can—but they’ll be sacrificing durability and longevity. Lifting heavy and moving fast is counterintuitive and counterproductive.”

On hydration

“Try not to drink too much water during a meal, as it can interfere with digestion. Wait an hour or so after you’re done eating before you drink water, since water washes away the body’s natural enzymes, which break down your food. Rule of thumb: Drink more water before and after meals than during meals.”

On his diet

“The regimen I follow is a mix of Eastern and Western philosophies. Some of these principles have been around for thousands of years. My nutritional regimen may seem restrictive to some people, but to me it feels unnatural to eat any other way. Many people have conditioned their bodies to a nutritional regiment made up of lots of white or pale-looking foods—french fries, potato chips, white bread, chicken nuggets—that don’t exist in nature.”

On dairy

“When I was a kid, the dairy industry rolled out lots of campaigns urging people to drink lots of milk. Remember milk mustaches? I actually did that campaign back in 2002! But research today is pretty clear that we should consume dairy in more limited amounts. Our belief at TB12 is that dairy products are high in calories and lower in nutritional value than other foods.”

On positivity

“Things happen sometimes that I don’t welcome or want, but I make the choice to remain positive. That is something within my control. I don’t like to focus on negatives or to make excuses. I am never a victim. I gain nothing if I get angry or frustrated. You can make life a lot harder for yourself by focusing on negative things in your path or making excuses for why things didn’t go your way.”

On his sleep environment

“Create a good pre-sleep routine to relax. Train your body to get into a rhythm by going to bed at a regular time, and turn off all your electronic devices a half hour before you go to sleep. If there’s a TV in your bedroom, consider putting it somewhere else. It’s a bedroom, not a tech cave. My wife doesn’t even allow cellphones near the bed when we sleep.”

On getting older

“Every year, people like to remind me that another twelve months have gone by, and that father time is undefeated. That saying has been around for a long time. It’s probably true—and realizing that has made me continually rethink my approach to my career and my holistic, integrative training regiment … To me, getting older has been a positive experience athletically.”
