Daily Directive 070320
The science of motivation is the science of success. That’s why I study motivation more than I study exercise technique. After more than 20 years as a coach, I know the selection of exercises is secondary to your desire to perform them. Here’s what we know about motivation:
Success has to happen before you’ll become motivated
Success has to KEEP happening.
We don’t always recognize success when it happens. We’re pretty hard on ourselves.
“Bright Spots Friday” is our practice of thankfulness. Every week in the BusinessIsGood group, we’ll post our “Bright Spots”: things that went right, things we’re celebrating, and little ‘wins’ from the week. Bright spots aren’t always directly work-related, but practicing gratitude and thankfulness will help you become a better leader.
The first time, you’ll be reluctant to post your Bright Spots. “I don’t really know these people THAT well…they don’t want to hear about my life.” Or “I don’t want to share all my personal stuff…”
So I’ll go first. And I encourage you to follow with one TINY little Bright Spot. Make it workout-related to start, if that’s easier. What did you do RIGHT, or do BEST, or do for the FIRST time this week? Share in the BusinessIsGood Facebook Group.
We’re all together here. It’s a safe place. Look within, and start your weekend happy.
Post your "Bright Spots Friday" post in the BusinessIsGood Facebook group.
