First we want to say a special CONGRATULATIONS to: James Hammel
He is our winner for the Rapid Results Retreat Give-A-Way! www.RapidResultsRetreat.com
Have you ever been excited to start a new business, learn a new skill, or pursue a new hobby? Of course you have, otherwise you wouldn’t have started right!? What about 6 months or a year into pursuing this new venture, were you still as excited? What about when the results weren’t coming as fast as you had hoped? Then you likely started to question, why am I doing this? What was I thinking? Where are the results I expected? Maybe I should just give up, this is a waste of time….
These days we live in a world where everything happens so incredibly fast that we forget that success doesn’t happen overnight. A skill isn’t mastered in 6 months, hobbies aren’t perfected after just a few tries, and businesses don’t grow overnight. In fact, 80% of businesses go out of business in the first year. And why!? For many reason, but one very common reason is this: a lack of, or decrease in, motivation.
In a study by Dr. Anders Ericsson, he found that the most significant predictor of success is motivation. MOTIVATION! Motivation doesn’t just work for some, it works for all. He found that in most fields, from sports to music and business, they had to invest “10 years and 10,000 hours to become an expert.” That being true, I can assure you one thing, it’s going to take more than a great idea and passion to get you there.
To reach your desired level of success, it’s going to take a lot of motivation, and I mean a whole lot. In fact, no matter how much you begin to learn throughout your new venture, the longer you work at something the more important motivation becomes.
Surely we all have those days where we wake up and struggle to get going. You may be wildly passionate about your new idea or project, but you just can’t seem to get going. So what do you do!?! For me, I have my daily rituals to get fired up for the day, from a morning run, to an hour of power, and finally an excellent set of playlists to help me get motivated and get in the zone. By the end of all this, I’m ready to conquer the world.
In this week’s JRCtv download, I’m super excited to share with you one of my favorite motivational playlists to help you automate your motivation. I recommend listening to this every single morning. Whether it’s while you’re on your morning run, while you’re getting ready, or while you’re on your way to work, make sure to listen to this playlist and get ready to conquer the world!!
Remember, it takes 10 years and 10,000 hours to become an expert. Stay fueled with a daily dose of motivation.
