Not as simple as being driven

Motivation, how can it work for you?  

If we look at wanting to change something simple in our lives, we change it. It doesn’t have to be set at the start of the year as a “new year’s resolution” or always at the beginning of a major event.

Goals can be set and achieved at any time and there is no need to compare with others as this can start to affect health and wellbeing, as one compares and feels like they fail before they start. 

In this episode we look at the different types of motivation, and which one is works for you. Motivation is not as simple as being driven. Motivation can come from internal and external factors, events, confidence and even the size of the task. 

The four tips that will get you motivated

  1. Create a hierarchy of needs 
  2. Fill in the gaps where you feel are lacking in the hierarchy 
  3. Are you motivated internally or externally
  4. Be a goal digger
  5. To believe in yourself. 

Ep. 015 – Choose kind – how the smallest thing can make someones day w/ Mel O'neil-King The Let me take a Selfie Podcast

Today’s guest Mel O’Neil King is co-owner and coach at Athlete X, the choose kind project was born out of a desire to improve the mental health of the world. It was sparked from a close friend of Mel who committed suicide.  What began as 12 days of Kindness’ social media challenge has grown into a movement that aims to positively impact the world of using the message of choose kind.  The simple act of kindness in yours or someone else's life can really change our day and how we function as a community. So sit back and listen as Mel and I unpack the philosophy of choosing kind. For show notes, visit: https://benjaminrashleigh.com/ep-015-choose-kind-how-the-smallest-thing-can-make-someones-day/
