We all have days when we feel like we can tackle anything. Nothing is out of reach, and you’re ready to take action and achieve your goals. Of course, we all have opposite days too, when we don’t feel like doing anything. Perhaps you’re tired, bored, procrastinating, or simply not “feeling it”. Whatever the case, it can be really difficult to take action when you feel unmotivated.

Please don’t feel bad about it. You’re human like the rest of us, and we’re not designed to be in the “action state” every second of every day. Sometimes, we need to rest, recuperate, and come back ready to take action when we’re ready.

However, if you find yourself continually struggling to take action, I can help. If you’re running a coaching business, you need to be as productive as possible for as long as possible. Coaching can be a demanding career, and the consequences of not taking action are usually not in your best interests.

So, how can you motivate yourself to take action when you don’t feel like it?

I answer this question in this episode of The Mindset Coach. I also share top tips to help you do the things you need to do, even when you don’t feel like doing them.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why it’s completely normal to feel unmotivated to take action sometimes
  • Why you must understand the action you need to take
  • How to increase the likelihood that you’ll keep taking action and not give up along the way
  • How to use ‘The 5 Second Rule’ to motivate yourself to be productive
  • How to motivate yourself to work on the tasks you’ve been putting off
  • Four key questions to ask yourself when you feel unmotivated
  • How to change your mindset around taking action when you don’t feel like it
