Motivation and Habits [Training Photos]

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. 

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing Something. 

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make new mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is. 
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, do it. 
Make your mistakes, next year and forever. 

Motivation is a weird thing that comes and goes based on how you feel at any given moment or day. 

Whenever people start out with a goal, they start out with great energy and fire, with huge amounts of motivation because they want to hurry up an accomplish that goal. But before they know it they are burned out, and lose motivation; and then they find themselves searching for a new goal. 

The best way to achieve a goal is to make the steps to achieve that goal a habit, a ritual. 

Once you make the process a habit, a ritual, you no longer have to suffer through the process...it just becomes a part of you. The key is, you must make the steps needed to achieve the goal a habit before you lose your motivation because if you lose your motivation before turning the steps into a habit, its over...time to start the vicious cycle all over again.
