Non Negotiable Motivations

I'm going to share with you something funny, and I think you'll relate to it. 

"Non negotiable motivation" 

What is it?

A non- negotiable motivation is a certain thing that TRIGGERS you to say "GAME ON", "I MEAN BUSINESS", or "Let's get shit done"! This can be in your personal life, with fitness, house cleaning or cooking. Or in your professional life, when you need to get book keeping done, emails accomplished and such.

I do have a few,  but one that stands out in the last 6 months has be SOCKS as my non negotiable motivation for fitness. 

When I put socks on, shoes are being put on afterwards and it's game on. Currently, I ONLY put socks on to go for a run or workout. Having socks on walking around the house doesn't happen in 28+ degree weather! This is why it has turned into my non negotiable motivation. The night before, I place them beside the sink, then guess what happens? When I wake up I see them and that triggers me for workout time! 

I've heard other great "non- negotiable motivation" and wanted to share them with you:

  • Runners on, laces tied up
  • Hair pulled back or hat on
  • A pump up song! 
  • Clothes laid out the night before
  • Alarm goes off
  • Husband says "Did you work out today?" if she says "Yes" he rewards her, if shes says  "No" he kicks her to their home gym
  • Running or gym buddies
  • A jar and when a workout is completed a dollar gets thrown in, after 30 days of working out -count the money and treat herself with it. 

I'd love to hear if you have other non- negotiable motivations. As goofy as these steps are, I believe they are IMPORTANT!

It's a way for you to overcome procrastination and set yourself up for success. 

If you don't have one in place - try it! 


Just like the saying says, "The body will achieve what the mind believes"

Have a wonderful day

Alive, Strong & Fearless
