Struggling With Motivation... Aiming high? Well done, but whether it's a New Year's resolution or an on-going health or fitness goal it's totally normal to have moments when the goal seems unattainable or that progress is slow. This is the time to remind yourself of why you picked those goals in the first place - a good way to do this is is to think of it as two types of motivation and write down all the factors that are relevant to each. Intrinsic - your internal motivators (eg self satisfaction, sense of achievement) Extrinsic - your external motivators (eg impressing someone else, external reward) As long as you have a well structured plan to achieve your goal, have faith in it and you will succeed. Good luck and work hard, because giving up is easy, but succeeding, especially after having to dig deep is much more of an achievement...
