How You Developed Bad Habits That Rob You Of Motivation

by Peter Murphy

Bad habits rob you of your motivation. 

Today I want to tell you why I decided I absolutely had to 
take charge of my self-motivation. And why you must do the same.

As you read this article you will start to understand why a 
lack of motivation is costing you even more than you realize.

Growing up I never really had much trouble getting things 
done. I was told what to do by my parents or by my teachers 
and I did what was expected of me because it was the easiest 
choice for me.

Getting punished never appealed to me very much.

Then as I got older and especially when I joined the workforce 
I could get away with doing less and with leaving things until 
the deadline approached. 

In fact in one company where I worked it made no sense 
finishing work before the deadlines because management kept 
moving the goal posts.

And very often I worked with people who refused to stretch 
themselves. This culture of doing as little as you can and 
appearing to be productive slowly dragged me down.

Over the years as a result of experiences like these I 
developed bad habits.

I can see now how a few bad choices in how I approached work 
affected all aspects of my life. The same may be true for you.

What we did over the years was create bad habits that need to 
be given up and replaced with a new way of behaving.

Do you realize what this bad habit has cost you in your life?

- You missed the sense of accomplishment and the satisfaction 
that comes with succeeding on a big scale

- You lost the respect of your peers and you are excluded from 
the winners circle 

- You no longer feel in control of your destiny and in fact you
are a victim of circumstance

- You earn far less than people of lesser intelligence and 
ability

- You worry about the future because you fear you may not be 
able to deal with things

Now is the time to take charge of this situation. I can tell 
you from my own experience that nothing will change until you 
decide to change and nothing will improve until you improve it.

You owe it to yourself and to the people who care about you to 
seize the day and make your life something to be proud of.

The satisfaction that comes from living life on your own terms 
is a wonderful gift you deserve to enjoy. And you will only 
have this once you know how to motivate yourself to create the 
life you dream of.

My income jumped, my social life improved dramatically and new 
opportunities for having even more of what I wanted all came 
about for me only after I learned the secrets of self-
motivation.

The world did not change. Other people did not change. I 
changed. Only When YOU change will your world change for the better.

Before I go...

Think of those people who look down on your lack of progress 
and take you for granted, think of that sense you have of not 
been in control. 

All of these feelings of dissatisfaction are not going to 
disappear-- in fact they will dominate your life as the years 
pass you by.

These issues are not going to go away all by themselves. 

I tried the wait and see approach - it does not work!

You need to stop the rot as a matter of urgency.
