Are we unknowingly killing our motivation?



Whether climbing the corporate ladder or starting a new fitness routine people need motivation to achieve their goal, right?

But what is that goal? Do we even know? Have we given ourselves a specific, measurable, attainable landmark to work towards?

Instead of: "I want to lose a little weight" or "I want to lose 50 pounds"
Try: "I want to fit in a size 6" or "I want to lose 1 pound a week for the next 12 months"

The 9 Toxic Things that Kill Your Motivation listed in this article seem like common sense - but so often we overlook the obvious in our path to pursue our ultimate goal.

We can't strive for perfection, push to the point of burnout OR wait for the ideal moment to take action -- are you letting any of these keep you from your goal?
