Keeping Motivated

Sometimes to get to something you love, you have to go through something you hate. Just remember where you are going.

QUESTION: Sherry and her husband have been working Dave’s plan for a year, but are getting tired. They need some encouragement to keep going, especially since they don’t like their jobs. Dave tells them to remember where they are going.

ANSWER: Being tired or worn out is normal. If it is me, I need to see where I’m going and that gives me the energy to get there. To get to something you love, you have to go through something you hate. But it’s not a way of life; it’s a road that is taking you to a destination. I would never get on a plane because it’s fun; I do it because it’s taking me somewhere.

Find something in your life that you love doing and aim for it so you can get out of these jobs you hate. When you answer that question, it takes away some of the fear and discouragement that you have. Sacrifice for a period of time to get where you want to go.
