On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing my simple advice on how to get motivated to do something you don’t want to do.
Let me keep it real.
I’m having one of those days.
You know, one of those days where you don’t feel like doing anything.
Yes, that’s how I felt today.
So do you think I felt like creating this Freestyle Friday post today?
No I didn’t.
But did I?
Well, you’re reading it, so you bet I did it anyway.

The reason is simple.
But before I share this key learning, let me first give you some context.
I really don’t know why I was in a funk today.
I woke up this morning, I trained a client, but now I’m just feeling off.
Maybe it’s because I’m in the process of moving out and my things are all over the place.
Or maybe it’s because I’m stressed that I’m moving out in 3 days, yet I still don’t have a permanent place to live yet.
However, I am working on closing a deal on a new place.
I looked at this place yesterday and I like it, as it’s up to my standards.
So I need you guys to send me lots of positive thoughts.
Hopefully this is going to work out for me and my dog, Peyton.
I also hope it works out for you, since this place is going to be the new set for Live Lean TV.
Now let me get back to the point of this post.
Again, I did not feel like creating a post today.
But then I remembered one of my life principles.
When you feel like you don’t want to do something, even though you know it should be done, just do it.
It’s just like Nike’s “Just Do It” tagline.
Trust me, you’ll feel so much better after you get whatever it is, done.
If I just laid on the couch watching TV, I wouldn’t be helping further my Live Lean Transformation 1,000,000 mission.
That mission is to help educate, motivate, and inspire 1,000,000 people to live a healthier lifestyle, by eating better foods and moving their body more effectively.
So that’s why I made the choice, to take action, and get in front of the camera today.
By just taking action, it actually made me feel better, because I know I’m accomplishing something that will help me get closer to that mission.
One other major point.
What kind of example would I been setting for you, if I decided to be lazy and just watch TV, rather than creating a piece of content.
In other words, how would I react, if you told me you were going to skip your workout because you just didn’t feel like doing it?
I’d tell you to just do it.
Then tell yourself to stop being a wimp, get up, and just get it done.
Don’t even think about the idea of not doing it.
That’s the key.
That’s my advice on how to get motivated to do something you don’t want to do.
So I’m going to cut it off right here because I have more moving to do.
Hopefully I’ll hear some positive news about the yearly lease on this apartment rental.
To be honest, I only want to sign a year’s lease, because I just don’t want to commit to buying something right now.
I’d rather just rent, see how things go, and then go from there.
So once again, send me those positive vibes.
Regardless, I’m declaring right now, that I’m going to get this apartment.
