Slow progress is still progress. Stay motivated and press on.


If you’re frustrated and losing motivation because of a lack of progress; remember that slow progress is still PROGRESS. The key is to stay motivated and redouble your effort to press on.

Motivational speeches and pep-talks are often derided because the motivation they provide is fleeting. This criticism is ridiculous to me. You don’t work out once and expect to be in great shape for the rest of your life. You don’t go to work once and expect to receive a paycheck for the rest of your life. Almost everything you do needs to be repeated daily. That is why habits are so important. You need to make recharging your motivational batteries a daily activity. You need to make motivation a habit.

I can’t overemphasize the importance of recharging your motivational batteries daily. Motivation is needed to take action, and as you have learned it’s our actions that produce results. Make motivation a daily habit. Re-stoke the fires often, because motivation is fleeting; especially when we are bombarded with negativity all day long. All the negativity around us can seep into our thoughts and de-energize you. It doesn’t take much time; watch a motivational video for 5-minutes in the morning and perhaps another 5-minutes in the evening. These mini-pep talks will supply you with the inspiration you’ll need to take on the day. It will help you maintain a positive mindset.

Motivation is the catalyst for action. It’s the catalyst for change, but it’s fleeting. You have to keep stoking the fires if you want to consistently put out more effort. The more you put out, the more you get out. We don’t get what we want. Wanting isn’t enough. We get out, what we put out.
