The B&E Podcast #146
“Why Our Motivation Escapes Us”
SUMMARY OF THE PODCAST:
We’re back to tackle that pesky subject about motivation, where it comes from, and how we can stay on track as artists. We discover that through a greater acceptance of our emotions and practicing forgiveness, for others and ourselves, we break through the barriers to freedom.
POINT #1: “READJUSTING OUR MOTIVATION”
– We have a lot of mixed up ideas about motivation in our world. It seems people either have it or they don’t, or when you have it, it’s fleeting. When we look at our goals not for what we get from them but what achieving our goals gives others we discover a greater sense of drive and purpose.
POINT #2: “EMOTIONS & SHACKLES”
– We all carry a lot of baggage. That baggage comes in the form of our past and our emotions around them. By not allowing ourselves to acknowledge our anger, sorrow or fear and express it in a healthy way, we carry it around with us. It can impact us in ways both consciously and unconsciously. Learning to let it go helps us to reconnect with our authentic motivation.
POINT #3: “FORGIVENESS IS THE KEY”
– After you have let the emotions flow the next step is to forgive. Forgive others, yourself, and the world. When you can recognize that no matter what wrongs might have been done, you or whoever it was that did them, it was the best that could be done at that time. You can even discover lessons you would have never learned had it not been for those events and be grateful. Ultimately, the release is found in forgiveness.
