Feel like you’re constantly losing motivation? Let’s talk about the real trick to staying motivated especially through hard goals and slow progress – your FOCUS.

“Where focus goes, energy flows” – let me show you what that means and how to break the Dunning-Kruger Effect and go from discouraged to determined in your goal setting and goal achieving.

Watch here:

One of the most frequent questions I get asked is “How do I stop losing motivation?”

We’ve talked before, about why we lose motivation, but how do you stop that cycle from happening so that you can actually stick to hard goals when they start getting really hard?

In order to understand that you need to understand the Dunning-Kruger Effect and how to break the Dunning-Kruger Cycle. So I’m going to walk you through that and then walk you through how to actually do it. 

So how do you keep motivation high so that you can stick through hard goals?

It’s so common that we get into goals – we’re 3 steps in or 3 weeks in, or maybe 50% of the way, and we just lose motivation. We get discouraged, we get overwhelmed, we get drained, we get frustrated. We’re not seeing the progress- and so we end up quitting.

This is actually called the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

Head on over to YouTube to join me as I breakdown how it works.
