What motivates you? For me it's watching things like BL, Ironman, anything where ordinary people are doing extraordinary things and I know that I can do that too.
I may have to add this to my signature line - LOL
People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing- that's why we recommend it daily.

What do you do to motivate yourself?
Makes sense doesn't it? The secret to staying consistent with your goals is to stay motivated. That means finding ways to fire yourself up on a daily basis. Being inspired at a seminar, by reading a book, or while talking to a dynamic speaker is easy. But what happens when you're on your own? To follow through on that burst of motivation and reach the finish line, you need regular booster shots. Give yourself those little positive reminders that you have an important job to do and a good reason for doing it. What's pushing you? Surround yourself with visual, verbal, and physical "pep talks" that trigger that motive. It doesn't take long for dust to gather on your momentum, making your goals turn stale. A daily dose of motivation kicks off the dust before it can settle and gives you a fresh, clean start.
