What do you think comes first? Motivation or action? If you said “Motivation” you made the logical choice. However, you would be wrong!
The truth is, human behavior does not always follow what appears to be a logical course of action.
We often need to “prime” motivation with action, the same way we prime a pump to get water. Once we take that first step, we begin to become motivated. Like that pump, energy and action will begin to flow spontaneously.
If you wait until you “feel like it,” then you may never get started. The key is to get into action and to just take a step. Any step.
So ask yourself, “What is something I COULD do right now? What small step COULD I take RIGHT NOW that would move me in the direction of my dream?”
Do you have the answer? Then do it! Send that email, reach out to that person, book that appointment, write down that idea, clean out that drawer…whatever it might be. Just take that small step right now, and watch the magic of momentum start to build.
Before you know it, you’ll be headed for the stars!
