Motivating Yourself When You’re Not Motivated with Gabe Cox

How do you stay motivated?

Staying motivated is one of the things people think about the most when they think about achieving a goal.

How do you keep going when you’re having an off day or the hard work is taking the shine off your excitement?

Maybe you’ve lost some of the fire you had when you set the goal. Maybe there’s an unforeseen obstacle in your way.

In the third part of our series on perseverance, we're going to be talking about how to stay motivated.

People ask me about staying motivated all the time. But it’s more complicated than simple hacks. They're not going to be enough to have perseverance and to get the results, but motivation is an important piece of the puzzle.

I’m joined again by Startup Success coach Gabe Cox. Gabe is a marathon runner, author of Mind Over Marathon, success coach, and homeschooling mom. Gabe is a powerhouse woman and someone who has really become an expert on persevering through and achieving your goals.
