Driven Not Motivated
The purpose of my brand is to help you stay driven through everything you choose to do. The reason behind my brand’s name is simple. Motivation is simply a feeling and like other feelings, it comes and goes. Think of it like a spark to a flame, its most certainly important in the beginning stages, but a simple spark won’t keep a flame going, just as motivation wont get to do the things you really don want to do 100% of the time. When these times come around which they always do, you have to have drive because drive is what will get you to where you want to go through the hard, difficult times when you don’t feel like it. If you are driven no one and nothing can stop you from getting from point A-B. Love the feeling of motivation but embrace and grow your drive. This starts every day from the moment you wake up, you must make a decision, a decision that will dictate the outcome of your day. Choose to go to work with a positive and productive mindset, choose to go to the gym after work even if you have a slight though of being tired, just pack your gym stuff so there’s no excuse later and do it. Make a small list of actionable items you need to get done and execute that list. Repeat this everyday without question and you will soon find out that you are farther along on your goals than others.
Start with one day and build on that. Make it 2 days, then 3 then 4 etc. Bottom line is that life is too short to sit around and wait for things that will never come to you. Create your own opportunities and don’t settle for anything short of your standards and what your goals are. Its ok to love the feeling for motivation, but deep down find your drive, the feeling that will carry you through any and everything you’re going through, it is here that you will be successful because you’ll do the things others will not and even when no one is looking.
Stay Driven, not Motivated.
