060 Why We do what we do – Motivation Matters 2-4


How do you motivate anybody?

What gives them the motive to do, or not do, something?

Few would disagree that we usually do the things we do because we want something. We want to be stimulated, to enjoy things and to feel good.

For many people that sense of ‘feeling good’ comes from getting away from ‘feeling bad’ – they want to escape boredom or hide from depressing or mask pain. They seek pleasure in things that, ultimately make matters worse – junk food, alcohol, drugs, social media…

In this podcast, I’ll show how we can be motivated by things that inspire us and lead us towards health, fulfilment and achievement. And how, by finding your motivation for getting better, you can light the spark in yourself to create the life that you want.


Thanks for listening and, if you want to connect with a community of people who are all working to build their motivation, I want to invite you to join the Mi365 Kickstart Facebook page.
