Motivation Monday: Understanding Your Motivational Blocks and Getting Past Them


I bet you didn’t know it, but yesterday was motivation Monday 🙂

I have decided that for June, July, and August, I would focus on physical fitness. To embark on a path to fitness you need to be motivated to take part in whatever path you choose.

So, the PLAN is to discuss motivation on Mondays, and fitness on Fridays…and then mid-week, I will just offer up a Wonderful World post–maybe a good news story, maybe something else 🙂 Check back each Wednesday to see where my whimsy leads.

And so it begins 🙂

Motivational Monday

Understanding Your Motivational Blocks and Getting Past Them

We all know that person. You know the one. They’ve got their stuff together. They’re out there making waves, breaking glass ceilings…they’re the doers. They simply get stuff done and make no excuses about going after what’s important to them. They are generally quite successful.

Do you ever wonder how they find their motivation? Do you know why they’re motivated to implement and succeed while you might not be? Do you know how they achieved their degree of “get ‘er done” mojo to get to where they are?

Know Your Personality Type

A great way to get motivated is to find out what type of personality you have. The reason being, different things motivate different personalities.

One way to discover your personality type is to take a personality test such as the one you can find on This test is based on Myers-Briggs which is what most psychologists today use. What’s more is that, if you are honest with your answers, the test seems to be accurate, and offers useful tools that can help you make changes.

You can purchase an in-depth analysis, or you can just use the results from the free test. The important thing is to answer the questions as truthfully as you can, and then to use the information received to gain insight into your own personality.

If any of your co-workers, friends or family are willing,  share what you learn about yourself so that they can help you create an environment that best supports your motivational leanings.

Tune in next week for more (and sorry I was a day late on my first post!)
