Underlying the distractive voice there might be belief that is holding you back. It could be a remnant pattern from the past. You might simply not enjoy what lies ahead of you. It doesn’t really matter. To start developing the new behaviors….do it anyway.
Motivation, while it can be inspiring, doesn’t have to be involved in creating change. Actions are. When I chose to expand my work, and my reach, I did so from a place of curiosity, without attachment to the outcome. It’s an interesting place to be. Research has validated my experience. Motivation is not necessary to create change.
Developing new skills to support creating the changes I wanted to make actually became a joy. When I realized I was doing and accomplishing what I set out to do I learned to enjoy it. At first I simply accepted what I felt needed to be done. I set about developing the new skills without expectation. As my skills grew, I enjoyed the process of growing, even the growing pains. I have developed a great enthusiasm for a few of them. I know at some point in the future that will change. And it will be okay. Now I look at everything I am doing with the view of “how am I being in it”. Am I accepting, enjoying, or enthusiastic about it? If not, it’s time to explore a little more, and create a shift.
How are you experiencing what you’re doing? How are you showing up? Just pay attention, without judgment, this week and see what you can learn!
Now its time to walk the dog.
