In a world where our attention is constantly diverted by weapons of mass distraction, it’s often hard enough to concentrate for more than fifteen minutes at a time, let alone stay motivated to achieve our health, wellness, and lifestyle goals.
I’m sure that motivation is something we all struggle with from time to time, I know I do!
But what if you knew how to go beyond motivation, if you had the framework for that, what could you achieve?
Let’s find out!
For years overwhelm was my biggest de-motivator, it wasn’t so much that I didn’t want to get things done, more that there were so many things to do that it left me feeling de-motivated.
Since then I’ve challenged myself to grow, creatively, emotionally and even physically and along that journey I met 2-time world record holder Natalia Cohen.
In 2015, Natalia, along with 3 other members formed a team of 4 women called the Coxless Crew. They were the first all-female team to row 8000 miles across the Pacific Ocean, they set two world records, raised £65,000 for charity and recently released a breathtaking and inspiring Netflix documentary of their journey called Losing Sight of Shore.
Through Natalia’s incredible journey across the Pacific, I’ve learned some powerful lessons that have helped me go beyond motivation and in this episode you’re going to learn:
