BOOSTER 15 - PLAN SOMETHING EPIC (AND LOVE THE PROCESS)
Long term motivation, how do we find that? And why do some become Antarctica explorers or “rockstars” and others quit halfway? Of course timing, people, network, creativity, knowledge, experience, health, attitude, money i.a. are all factors of where in the process you start the journey towards a big goal. But those are also the parts you need to love working for to be able to do something long term - prioritizing, being patient, finding mini challenges within the big one, enjoying every “guitar lesson”, seeing the money/time you spend on it as an investment for the soul, getting education, needing 7 jobs, practicing every damn day, feeling great about practicing every damn day, selling stuff, not buying stuff, being honest to and trusting yourself, talking to people, asking for advice and help, quit doing things you don’t love doing and start doing things that which you do, and so on.
Action: Take your long term goal, break it into reachable step-by-step actions (daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly). What do you have and what do you need (SWOT, starting point)? Visualize the process and your daily prioritizations and sacrifices. Does it feel good in your gut? If not, can you do something to make it feel good - work on your attitude, redefine your goal, set a new goal?
Brain training: Making your goals specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, time bound, exciting and routine bound (SMARTER) is a great and well used tool in maintaining motivation. This is the most well defined analysis and reflection of the process that you need to find out if you’ll love it (if you don’t feel it already). And what is the goal worth if you don’t?
Benefits: Be smart in how you live and feel about your life. Which lifestyle fits you? Which actions make you bounce out of bed? What process do you need in your life to make you feel like a “rockstar” every damn day, so much that you don’t even need that long-term goal? This will make your sacrifices transform into positive prioritizations. You’ll do what you want/need and you feel it’s worth everything.
Since my siblings are freezing in Utah right now it’s my turn to post about the beautiful trails we have here in the Los Angeles area. One of my favorite trails to do with little kids, to be prepared for it to take you a few hours but so worth it with this waterfall where you can soak your feet in
Happy Friday Everyone💛✨ After a long drive last night, we are stoked to finally be in south east Washington to check out some canyons and waterfalls🌊

Went on my first hike since the Woolsey Fire. Things looked a bit different, to say the least... (swipe ⬅️)

Los Angeles’tan yaklaşık 4 saat araba kullanarak ulaşabileceğiniz #deathvalley eşsiz doğal güzelliklere sahip. Meşhur “Yürüyen Kayaları” çölleri, Mars yüzeyini andıran toprak yüzeyive deniz seviyesinden 100 m aşağıda bulunan Bad Water ve daha birçok güzelliğe sahip. Yolunuz düşerse her yerini gezmek isterseniz 2 gün ayırmanızı tavsiye ederim. #movingrocks#california#usa
