MOTIVATION!!! Who wants more motivation? Well, what do you want it for?

Starting a business? Writing a book? Continuing a workout routine?

Spoiler alert! The answer to achieving these things and so much more is NOT motivation!!! Motivation will ebb and flow throughout the day, sometimes swinging wildly by the hour. If you are looking to create this better life, better health, better business, a better product- more motivation is not what you need! What you need are HABITS!! Positive, practiced habits that are consistently executed will bring about more results and change your life way faster than moments of “motivation” will.

Today, I will walk you through how to honestly evaluate your habits to see what is serving you and moving you forward to the life that you desire and which ones are holding you back. With tips, tricks and a look at 5 tools to master your habits, let’s dive in and shake the myth that motivation is all that matters.

And stay tuned for Episode 2 as we continue to discuss habits and the power they have to change your life! Remember, if we can identify it, we can rewire it!
