This is Motivation Monday! A short monologue with inspiration for your week…brought to you by ConjoStudios, and the Explore Purpose Podcast.
Are you feeling stuck? I know I have been there. Not knowing how to move forward. I have a tip for this… so stay tuned.
My name is Conrad Weaver, I’m the host of the Explore Purpose Podcast and I’m a documentary film maker. My purpose is to inspire you to live a life that matters! When you discover and live out your purpose, you will have greater impact on the world around you!
I’m so glad you tuned in.
Getting stuck is never fun. I remember sliding into a snowy ditch once when I was a teenager… it took a tractor to pull me out…
But that’s not really the kind of stuck I’m talking about.
Perhaps you’re stuck in a job you don’t really like. Or your stuck on a problem your trying to solve, or perhaps your stuck in your career and don’t really know where to turn next. Or maybe your frustrated that you don’t seem to be getting anywhere on your project, that you’re not achieving the goal.
I’ve been to all of these places. And it’s not fun.
This I know. It’s hard to focus on the future…it’s hard to see the possibilities of what can be, while being stuck. It’s like you can’t see around the problem.
I recently had a conversation with a friend, Jim Whitt who gave me an idea… (you can hear my conversation on episode # 76 of the explore purpose podcast)
He was talking about discovering purpose by going through a process.
In the process you discover purpose.
And I think we can use that same idea to get unstuck, or to be able to move forward in order to get to where you want to be…
It’s the process.
Yesterday I took a bike ride to begin the process of training for a cross country trip I’m planning for next Summer.
I only rode 13 miles and felt great but exhausted afterward. My mind kept going froward to next year, when I’d be riding 75 to 100 miles every day! Right now, that seems impossible.
But I know the process of training will get me there. If I only focus on the goal, I’ll never get there. But if I focus on the process of training, riding every day, 10-20 miles at a time, I’ll eventually be able to ride 75 or 100 miles in a day. It’s the process that gets me to the goal.
So, what are you stuck on?
What’s the process that you need to do to achieve the goal you have?
Are you only focusing on the goal or on your stuckness ?
The process takes time. I have to be patient with myself while I’m working through the process. The process leads me toward progress.
There’s no progress without process.
Don’t be so in love with the goal that you neglect the process. I know I need to remind me about this regularly!
I love the idea of completing a film project and releasing it to the world. But if I only focus on the end result I’ll never get there. I have to focus on the process of actually making the film.
Work on the process and your success will come.
So that’s the motivation for today. What’s the process you need to focus on? Go out and do that today.
Do you want a rich and satisfying life? Focus on the process.
