Motivation is Temporary

Andy Frisella talking to a group of people

Any time we set out to do something new or are presented with a new opportunity...

Whether it's a lifestyle change, new career path, relationship, or anything else...

It's exciting.

In the beginning, this excitement makes it easy to stay disciplined and operate with urgency.

But what do most people do when that initial excitement and motivation starts to fall off?

They compromise…

They lose urgency...

They let their foot off the gas…

They slip on the details…

They check out…

Then they decide it’s “not working out” and move onto the next new and exciting thing.

This is why most people lose.

In order to avoid this trap...

You must maintain a high level of urgency and execution far past the point that your daily tasks become boring and monotonous for you.

This is something all winners understand very well.

I call it "Mastering the Mundane."

If you want to win long-term...

You need to develop this skill.

Excitement and motivation are temporary...

...and once they're gone...

Discipline is the only thing that remains.

If you can’t execute at a high level even when you’re bored or frustrated or tired…

…you can’t win.

It’s that simple.
