Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.
Deuteronomy 31:6

Motivation, the reason, or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.

I like to explore what inspires my clients. Being inspired by something or someone leads to desire and desire is the root of motivation and motivation is one of the five foundational building blocks of Living in Full Excellence.

One of the main reasons people seek out Life Coaching is because they feel stuck. This has been more prevalent these days because essentially, we have been stuck for the last 18 months due to the pandemic. Because motivation is predominantly triggered by external stimuli, feeling stuck is the “state of being” that people are facing today.   

When people desire a Life in Full Excellence, they come to us, and we assist them on this journey fueled by their desires. To keep them coming back until they reach their destination there needs to be some externally generated motivation.

In all my years in this field I have come up with the following axiom: the best motivator is results!

When you begin this journey, the external motivation must come from your coach. Your inspiration or desire which got you to reach out will not carry you beyond a week or so of the journey. It is up to your coach to supply the motivation you need to continue all facets of your journey until the results take over.

These results can be in the form of a feeling of wellbeing, increased energy, or a brighter outlook towards life in general. Depending on what your journey is, a reduction in scale weight, lower body fat percentage, improved lab work, and most importantly observations from other individuals might just be the motivation that you needed. When these things start to occur, the journey not only gets easier it becomes more enjoyable.

Once your destination is reached you will be experiencing a Life in Full Excellence and that is motivating because it is how we were all intended to live when we were created. Having received this gift from God; I can tell you personally that I am motivated to keep it.
