What to watch after Ted Lasso | Motivation blocks | A quick poll | Last-chance to subscribe to attend tonight's workshop | And much more
Thanks to all of you who answered our quick poll last week! You overwhelmingly cited Motivation as the biggest barrier to reaching your goals.
Here are 5 common factors that can contribute to low motivation:
1. Lack of clear, compelling goals: When we don't have clear goals or a strong sense of purpose, it can be challenging to stay motivated. Without a clear direction or something to strive for, motivation tends to diminish.
2. Overwhelming tasks: Feeling overwhelmed by a large task or a series of tasks can lead to a lack of motivation. When the workload feels too daunting or unmanageable, it's easy to lose motivation and become disengaged.
3. Fear of failure: Fear of failure can paralyze motivation. When we are afraid of making mistakes or believe we won't succeed, we can feel demotivated to even try. The fear of not meeting expectations can be a powerful block.
4. External factors: External circumstances, such as a negative work environment, unsupportive relationships, or lack of resources, can significantly impact motivation. If the external factors are demotivating or hindering progress, it can be challenging to maintain motivation.
5. Burnout and fatigue: Prolonged periods of stress, excessive workload, or lack of adequate rest can lead to burnout and fatigue. When we feel mentally and physically exhausted, motivation tends to suffer. Check out our latest episode with Alexis Nelson to hear how stress impacted not just her mindset, but her body.

Our next Uplifters Workshop is tonight!
We aren’t always consciously aware of the connection between our minds and bodies, but research shows that our thoughts have a profound impact on our physical experience. In this workshop, we will look at how you can use an awareness of your Mind-Body connection as a superpower that allows you to move through pain and other physical blocks.
