Rediscovering your drive: 5 ways to get your motivation back

Rediscovering your drive: 5 ways to get your motivation back

We all experience moments in life when our motivation seems to fade away. Whether it’s due to a setback, a lack of inspiration, or the daily grind taking its toll, losing motivation can leave us feeling stuck and unproductive.

However, the good news is that motivation is not a finite resource; it can be reignited and rediscovered. Here are five powerful ways to get your motivation back and reignite your drive towards success.

1. Reconnect with your why

When motivation wanes, it’s essential to reconnect with your “why.” Reflect on the reasons behind your goals and aspirations. What drives you? What do you want to achieve?

Take some time to think about your goals and the impact they will have on your life and the lives of others. Visualise your success and the fulfilment you will feel when you accomplish what you set out to do. Reconnecting with your “why” can provide a powerful boost to your motivation.

2. Set clear goals

Sometimes, a lack of motivation can stem from setting goals that feel overwhelming or disconnected from your values. Break down your goals into smaller, achievable milestones. By setting achievable targets, you can track your progress and celebrate successes along the way.

3. Surround yourself with positive influences

The company we keep can significantly impact our motivation and mindset. Surround yourself with positive and supportive individuals who uplift and inspire you. For example, if you’re looking to build a healthy and active lifestyle – Body Ethics is the place to be!

4. Join a group class

Group workouts provide a supportive and motivating environment. When you exercise with others, you are more likely to push yourself harder, stay committed to your goals and show up consistently. Why not try our small group personal training service?

5. Practice self-Care and mindfulness

Self-care and mindfulness are essential for maintaining motivation and preventing burnout. Take time to nurture yourself physically, emotionally, and mentally. Prioritise activities that bring you joy and relaxation, whether it’s spending time in nature, reading a book, or engaging in a hobby. Practising mindfulness can also help you stay present and focused on your goals.

Remember that motivation is not a constant state; it requires effort and nurturing.


Power Moves To Get Through 2024

Power Moves To Get Through 2024

The first three months of 2024 might be over but that doesn’t mean the year is.

Have you reviewed the first three months of the year to see what went well, what didn’t go well and are you on track with your objectives? If not, we recommend working on business OKR’s (Objectives and Key Results) as a priority task for your brand growth. If you are not sure what I mean, you can book a free 20 minute call to discuss this.

But that’s not all I am here for today.

We want you to take control over the future of your business. Whilst OKR’s will definitely support this, I also wanted to share some other bits:

1. Craft your masterpiece: No more blurry dreams! Define your “why”, and paint a picture of your empire – no dream is too big or too small, go wild.

2. Master the “flex”: Ditch the rigid play-book and move away from the expectations that one magic formula will support you. Develop strategies that bend, not break.

3. Innovate: When you come to a hurdle, stop, take a step back and watch your natural creativity spark new ideas.

4. Network and connect: We perform so much better as a tribe. Outsource your work, hire interns, grow a team or simply attend networking events with other like-minded brand owners. You never know where an encounter can lead to….

5. Use your data: I see so many brands not using data enough. Data isn’t a leash, it’s a compass. Measure, adapt, and dominate. Track progress and tweak your tactics.

This year, don’t just hope for change, build it. This is your business, your legacy.

Remember, success is yours to claim. What are you waiting for?

A Moment Of Mindful Movements With The Grounded Yogi

A Moment of Mindful Movement with The Grounded Yogi

We sat down with Rima from The Grounded Yogi to understand how Yoga helps business owners think more clearly, make better business decisions and have overall peace amongst chaos.

Rima, what is Yoga and why is it so important in today’s world?

Yoga is a spiritual practice that promotes a connection between your mind and body. Now more than ever, we need a way of disconnecting from all the noise and distraction around us in order to tune in with our own self. With stress levels and burn out rising each day, Yoga is a practice that each of us can benefit from.

How can implementing Yoga help a business owner?

Yoga is an adaptable practice and can provide business owners with tools to ensure they succeed, without burning themselves out.

For example, there are pranayama (breathing) techniques that restore calm when you are feeling anxious. There are yoga postures designed to energise the body or strengthen the spine and correct bad posture.

Most business owners at early stages of their journey lack a lot of time and feel guilty for “taking a break” – what is your advice to them?

I completely understand that time can be so short for business owners. The best way to look at your Yoga practice is not the time you’re taking away but what you’re getting back. Even a 10 minute morning practice can increase productivity, provide focus and clarity so you can make better business decisions. At the end of the day, a few minutes of calm can help you unwind and be able to sleep better to restore for another day of business success!
