The word that gets thrown around usually in hysteric because it seems to be something we have lost.
It isn’t under the couch.
I didn’t leave it at work.
It isn’t in the bottle of vodka.
And hell it sure isn’t at the end of the block of chocolate (I’ve personally looked enough times for all of us)
Maybe my dog ate it?
We can search high and low until we are left in a slump, clueless asking,
“Where did my motivation go?”
What if I were to tell you I can help you find it AND help you reach LIMITLESS MOTIVATION?!
Remember when you were at your healthiest and fittest you ever have been?
Remember how god damn good you felt!?
Not the skinniest – almost quite the opposite the most nourished, alive on top of the world version of yourself – with so much internal strength and energy.
So full of life and sunlight!!
I want you to think back to that point – what where you doing that worked so well?
I already know the answer but do you?
Instantly you’re going to reel off a list of things in your mind that seem so far fetched and you think you can NEVER get back there, but that isn’t it.
You were doing ONE thing.
That’s it – at your fittest and healthiest point of your life you were being consistent.
Doesn’t matter who you are, at what age, under what circumstance – the only time anything EVER changes (this can be both good OR bad) is if we are consistent.
BUT how can you use the piece of information to unlock LIMITLESS MOTIVATION?
Realise it must started and will always start within YOU.
No matter how much money you throw at fitness programs, gyms, trainers, food plans or life coaches you will not get the results you want if you don’t rewire YOU.
You cannot buy motivation.
It must start with YOU.
Our bodies are wired a certain way – an extremely powerful way, so powerful that it is actually apart of our subconscious mind.
OKAY TEL YOU ARE LOOSING ME, WTF is the subconscious mind?!?!
Right, you know when you’re eating really well but nek minute you find yourself a packet deep in chips?
Or when you’re looking in the fridge when you are not even fucking hungry, you don’t even know how you got there and don’t even know what your are looking for?
Or when you set your alarm early to get a walk/workout in but you switch it off without even thinking twice?
Or when you have full intent to cook a healthy dinner then find yourself in the drive thru with an extra large fries and an ice cream?
THIS IS YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND.
Imagine an iceberg – the top part visible to the naked eye is the 5% of things that get you the result that you want that you consciously think about – e.g training, prepping, planning… The other 95% of the iceberg that is hidden under the water is what counts most– that 95% is your subconscious mind. Things that you don’t even realise that happen like when you HAVE to have ice-cream.
TO become CONSISTENT and to have LIMITLESS MOTIVATION you need to learn to re-wire your subconscious mind.
At the moment your journey is like a road trip – a long ass road trip. You have your foot on the accelerator the whole time and it seems to get getting you to where you want to be (This may be your training/eating)– then a steep arse hill comes up – you keep your foot down as long as you can but you get exhausted and want to take your foot off only to roll back down having to start again. (this is you reaching for the block of chocolate without even realising) What if you had cruise control on the entire way? What if you were able to just cruise along at 80km per hour to your destination? (This is you taking control of your subconscious mind)
HERE IS THE GOLDEN NUGGET LADIES:
4 steps to re-wire your subconscious mind:
1) UNCONSCIOUS INCOMPETENCE – Basically this was you before reading this blog – you don’t know what you don’t know.
2) CONSCIOUS INCOMPETENCE – This is you after reading this blog – you begin to be more aware of these things you do that set you back – you may not act on them yet but now when you do them you begin to realise it is happening.
3) CONSCIOUS COMPETENCE – Repetition is the mother of all skills. You weren’t aware of something – e.g when you first learnt how to tie your shoe – you had no idea what you were doing but once you became aware of what you had to do then continued to PRACTICE over and over and over you are now able to do this task without thinking which leads to…
4) UNCONSCIOUS COMPETENCE – Once you master the skill you know longer have to think about it – when you drive home from work and can’t remember how you even got home you went into auto mode – this is unconscious competence – you have preformed that task so many times now that is happens without even thinking. For it this to work you need to ensure you practice it every day.
Let’s use exercise for example:
UNCONSCIOUSLY INCOMPETENCE – You are lacking motivation and believe you are going to the gym regularly and don’t understand why you aren’t getting the results you want.
CONSCIOUS INCOMPETENCE –You become aware of how many gym sessions you are actually making (missing every second one) – and realise this may be the cause of the lack of results.
CONSCIOUS COMPETENCE – With the sessions front of mind you make a commitment to attend 5 days a week – this may seem daunting at the start with old habit of automatically driving home after work but after practicing and practicing you make the effort to attend all these sessions.
UNCONSCIOUS COMPETENCE – After work you are now in autopilot and end up at the gym, every single time – it is now apart of your routine – you don’t even need to think about it anymore.
You can apply these 4 steps to any situation that you feel you are being help back in – once you apply it you will have LIMITLESS MOTIVATION as these actions become second nature to you rather then a chore – it is all about picking up on current habits and transforming them into skills.
What can you re-wire in your subconscious mind to unleash LIMITLESS MOTIVATION?
I’m excited for you!
