How to get back your Motivation Mojo

When you speak of an idea to do something or take action in some way, have you found in the past people have responded to you in a particular way? If these people are your closest friends or family, it can be really difficult to ignore their advice and opinions, especially if they have your best interests at heart.

Other people’s opinions can have a profound influence on our progress. Subconsciously we take in their negativity and therefore attach their beliefs to our own, even though there was a point where we were feeling the opposite beforehand!

Unfortunately people’s opinions are very much based on their own experience and reality, but the error here is that what didn't work for one person doesn't necessarily mean it won’t work for another. Taking the decision to go about things regardless is both brave and important.

Building up awareness about this mindset is key, because you can decide what to mindfully accept as good advice and what isn't. If you are working around others during the day, notice how it makes you feel when someone speaks of negativity. What could you do to re-frame what they say in your mind to make it sound more positive and avoid being brought down to their dense and complex thought vibrations?
