You Are a Leaky Bucket

When it comes to motivation, we are all “leaky buckets.”

We have all had the experience of hearing an awesome motivational speaker who inspires us to commit to change and get ready to take our success to the next level. However, we have also all experienced that motivation and commitment dissipate within a few weeks. Right?

The problem is that we are all “leaky buckets.” The motivation pours into our bucket, but within a short period of time it “leaks” out.

The solution is to first admit that you are a “leaky bucket” and to take some time every day to fill your “bucket.” There are many great resources available for free on YouTube. Let me encourage you to search through YouTube and find motivational videos that you know will help you, and then set aside a few minutes each day to watch and listen to those videos.

You can also find some great audiobook and podcast resources to more productively use your time when you are driving, walking or on the treadmill.

If you want to stay motivated, here’s an easy and powerful four-step process:

  1. Admit you are a “leaky bucket”
  2. Identify video and audio resources
  3. Commit a few minutes each day to listening to these resources
  4. Repeat tomorrow

You can accomplish great things in your life and your business if you stay motivated. Remember, nothing works unless you do!
