How MOTIVATION is your biggest enemy and Why you don't need it

What if I told you that motivation is not what you think it is? That, any time you feel unmotivated or low on energy it never has to stop you achieving anything.

I used to think: "If only I had the motivation I would......." or "I wish I could just be motivated to........". 

I used to live in a cycle where I would at times be super motivated and be doing so much, I could do many things and felt so capable; I was making sh*t happen! Then, I would lose that motivation; I just wasn't feeling it and it was like I was a different person and what I wanted felt so far away. 

Having trained in NLP I used to use techniques to "get" motivated. There are so many processes that get the body and mind moving again and feeling different; I could run one or two and....... Bang.........Motivation was back, baby!!!

But, it rarely lasted long without "doing" something to keep it going and then eventually I would give up because doing the technique in itself took motivation. The irony was not so obvious at the time and I used to wonder what was wrong with me, and that lead to a deeper spiral of even less motivation; I switched off.

This cycle lasted for years until I was introduced to a very simple idea, but a profound one that changed everything!

Now, now matter how motivated or unmotivated I am I still keep moving forward, doing so many things that before would have seemed impossible and you can too!

It is a secret that the most successful people in the world know and it is a big part of how they became successful in the first place. I know this because I have been coached by some of the best.

If you come to this meet up I will not only share this insight with you but will also help you find a way to start using it in your life so that you never again have to get motivated to do anything!

This meet up group is about insight and action. Come to the meeting to gain the insight and then go out and take action!

Who do you know who thinks they need motivation? Maybe it is time they found a better way too.

Don't be selfish.........bring them along! :-)

I'll see you there!

With Passion and Purpose

    This meet up certainly fulfilled my expectations. David gave such insight into motivation as well as helping me to explore areas in my life that have been proving challenging. I particularly like the fact that we all were give personal targets to work on. David is personable, knowledgable & inspirational. I will definitely be back.

    I'm glad that I attended. I now understand why many time I lose my motivation half way. David explained giving clear examples and then it make it relevant to each of us. And it gave us things to work on which I can apply from tomorrow. Today I got inspired on what facing your fear can do for you, tomorrow I can start my journey to change by facing one of my fears!

    Is there any way to get this insight without going to the meetup? Because a new opportunity just came up, and August 19th I’ll be some sort of mentor in a JavaScript event (one of the main languages I develop in)! :) I’ve met someone that was looking for knowledgeable people about JavaScript and I just volunteered!

      Every time you grab an opportunity or create one you are doing everything right. The only time you can ever do anything wrong is when you do nothing.

      Thanks for that. Then, I will record something and ensure that you can follow up with any questions. Thanks Goncalo.
