Did you ever start out on a new project, full of motivation and excitement… but then, after only a short while, all that passion and motivation to take action and to move forward was suddenly gone?
But why, what happened?
Of course, there are various reasons for a sudden lack of motivation. It could be caused by different fears you may not even be conscious about, such as fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of mediocrity… and there are others.
But, one of the biggest reasons for a sudden lack of passion and motivation to take action is because you don’t approach things the way YOU should approach them.
You may do things in a way that is commonly accepted as the “right” way to handle a specific task. But, although this may work for many or even most people it may not necessarily be YOUR way – and if it’s not your way, it will be rather difficult to succeed with that approach.
This is true for any kind of endeavor, project or task. Whether you are trying to find a new job, to write a report, to raise money for a project… or whatever.
The fact that you don’t feel any passion, motivation and excitement when it comes to taking action indicates that you aren’t approaching that specific task in a way that corresponds with you.
Your logic may tell you that a specific way should work for you, because it’s taught by an authority, it seems to work for most people, it is widely accepted as the best approach…
But, again, a highly successful approach, method or strategy may not necessarily work that great for you. However, it may be an interesting guideline you can build on.
Finding your unique approach is easier than you may think.
Simply use your creativity. Listen to your intuition and have fun finding your OWN way. When you start having fun, passion, excitement and motivation will quickly join in and with that emotion and energy on your side, success becomes inevitable.
If you are not passionate about doing things a certain way, you will do them half-heartedly, there will be a lack of commitment and energy – simply because the energy of passion and excitement will be missing – and no matter how hard you may be pushing, it won’t make up for the lack of passion and your success will be mediocre at best.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that you have to invent a completely new approach to move your project forward. Most of the time, it will be enough to change only a few minor things here or there.
And those minor changes will represent your way, a way you will be excited to walk. Passion and motivation will join in naturally and therefore allow your full commitment and guarantee your success.
A few things that could prevent you from finding your path…
The biggest obstacles to approaching things in your own unique way will be the fear of the unknown, the fear to try something new and the fear to fail.
I suggest you take on a playful attitude. Just have fun experimenting with new ideas. A part of you, your Higher Self already knows your perfect way. All you need to do is to open that channel of communication between your Higher Self and your waking consciousness.
And the best way to do that is by letting go of your fears, by lightening up a little bit and by taking on a playful attitude.
Give it a try, you don’t really have anything to lose. If you take action without any passion and excitement, it will be a rather unpleasant experience and your success will be mediocre at best.
If you play with your own approach, you will have a lot of fun and the chances for success will be much better, because the energy of passion and excitement will pull you forward.
A few simple tips to find your way…
To find YOUR way, simply reach within, use your intuition, connect with your higher self and ask for guidance… Make a note of the ideas you will receive. Imagine different scenarios and approaches and observe your emotions and feelings. If you feel excited about a specific idea you have a good starting point.
And by all means, don’t discount any of those ideas you may receive – no matter how crazy they may seem at first. Just look around, the world is full of absolutely amazing inventions, hugely successful people, remarkable concepts… that started out as a crazy idea.
