We all make goals… but then we also procrastinate. We all have beautiful to-do lists… but we never follow through. Before we notice, we’re stuck in a vicious cycle that prevents us from moving forward. But, every now and then, we stop for a second and look back at ourselves to become mindful and aware of what we’re doing: self-sabotage. This is a habit of your self motivation skills.

Even after walking on the procrastination path for a while, our mind automatically snaps and almost demands that we get back in the game. That’s motivation. How do we get it? Science has its way of explaining motivation, defining it as as people’s willingness to take action towards their goals. Real-life has another way to talk about motivation, as the thing that makes us show up at the gym every morning.

The real definition of motivation doesn’t matter, the only one that matters is yours. Are you the type of person who’s surrounded by motivational quotes? Maybe you just ask yourself to stay motivated no matter what. Perhaps you’re the type of person that just pushes through whatever is troubling you. We’re definitely a mix of these motivational personalities, there is a lot in the game here. What we’re most interested in, what are your self motivation skills that keep you motivated?
