“Clarity or purpose is the secret to motivation and discipline”

“If you want undeniable motivation and discipline then get crystal clear about your real purpose and nothing will stand in your way.” - Tadayoshi Inoue

Most people think that people with great will power, disciple and motivation for doing what they need to in order to accomplish their goals are usually just born with this ability. But the truth is, we all are born with this ability to be disciplined and motivated.

The key to being motivated, disciplined and displaying great will power is all in deeply understanding your purpose for doing whatever it is that we want or need to do. I do not mean knowing why you want to do something in a superficial way. I am talking about that deeper reason that touches something deeper within you.

When most say they want to lose weight, I know they do. But statistically they will not. Why? Because they usually won’t stay consistent long enough to make the kind of changes they really want. They cheat on their diet enough to zero out any progress for the week. They won’t do cardio consistently enough to make changes. Or they simply do not want to do all that is necessary in order to get the results they desire.

But those who understand exactly why they want to lose the weight on the deepest level possible seem to always make it to the gym. They always do their diet correctly. They never seem to skip cardio. Why? Because in those times when the urge arises within them to do something other than what they need to they are reminded of that deeper reason which creates such a powerful incentive they see no other option. 

That deeper reason usually has to do with who we are as a person in the most vulnerable and intimate way. Why do you want to lose weight? Because I will then feel like the woman I know I am inside; empowered and worthy of love. Or perhaps because that person who is leaner in the way I want feels loved, safe and worthy of the greatness that I feel I am on the inside. 

No matter what your particular reasons are if you ask yourself “Why” until you can’t ask any more. Then you will arrive at your truest answer. This you know when you say it. Look at what makes you feel less than. Don’t be afraid to ask yourself questions that might seem scary. We are who we are and I believe that is always wonderful. Usually it feels like love.

I am love. I am joy. I am so very good. And so are you.
