There are two motivators that get us taking action on goals. One motivator is to move toward something and the other is to move away from something.
Moving away from something involves fear. Whatever the fear, it helps you take action on goals. But it’s based on negatives and the journey is often a struggle.
Moving toward something is a powerful positive motivator. With the goal in sight, we feel prepared to address setbacks. We’re filled with confidence, anticipation and hope. Moving toward something comes when you understand a vision of your future.
Action – Look at one of your goals that seems to be challenging you. Ask yourself this question – by pursuing this goal, what am I moving away from?
Even though you may ultimately succeed by moving away from some fear, it is far easier and faster to rearrange the goal to work toward something else.
