What is Motivation?
I mean we hear the word a lot, but do you actually, fully understand what it is / means? If you don’t, then by understanding it a little deeper, it will allow you to be more Empowered in this area, make sense?
So let’s delve in to what Motivation IS and by better understanding it, we may actually USE and APPLY it…
Motivation is a duality of inspiration or desperation, or both.
Motive by itself is defined as ‘a reason for doing something’.
When Emotion is added to the motive i.e. you are ‘Inspired’ … or you are in a state of ‘despair’ … then the motive itself – transforms – in to ‘Motiv–ation’.
Meaning, the motive is now action-ed because, you have added Emotion ( Energy linked to motion…

There are just TOO MANY options available for business owners today to achieve marketing growth objectives. Where do you start?
In a world where customers are constantly being bombarded with advertising (online and offline), numerous events to attend, networking, online channels, flyers through their doors…..it would be easy to miss the opportunity to grab your customers attention.
Very often business owners are swayed by the latest ‘shiny object’ as I call them, be it Instagram, SEO, website design, posting on Facebook or Experiential Marketing at Events. Following the latest trend can lead to time, effort and budget being misallocated and disappointing results.
These 5 steps are fundamentals, at a high level and of course much detail is needed to be added at each stage. I recommend this initial framework to any business…
There are Huge pressure on high street retailers and businesses who’s customers are in a localised area due to:
- Economic climate – low disposable incomes, Brexit fears, long term UK recession
- Technical change – consumer behaviour, purchasing online, reducing footfall and broadening purchasing choices
- Local rates – rises in NNDR and rental rates
Despite the pledges made by the Chancellor in the Autumn Budget (1/3 reduction in business rates by 2021, “Future High Streets Fund”) the pressures are going to be on.
The most sustainable local business types that are weathering these pressures are those businesses that can’t be replicated online:
- Sports clubs
- Hairdressers and barbers
- Professional services (solicitors, accountants, lawyers, dentists…)
- Personal grooming
- Restaurants, Bars and places to go out for an evening
- Coffee Shops
- Trades, plumbers, electricians, builders

That means that they live with problems and issues that restrict their choices making their lives much more difficult for months and years, whilst the stress & anxiety dismantle their confidence, motivation & self-belief piece by piece in front of their very eyes.
There is definitely something within the human spirit that makes us all reticent to reach out for help until ‘we have tried everything we can, to fix ourselves’ & when that doesn’t work, sometimes the light dawns & that moment of clarity…
- Mindset transformation
- Gaining clarity and direction
- Overcome obstacles
- Overcome insecurities
- Overcome past traumas
We are Aerobic creatures by nature – but living an Anaerobic Lifestyle – still wonder why you have excess body fat and feel tired a lot of the time!?
Health is the most critical and most valuable resource you have or will ever have. Bar none.
Your body is the vehicle through which you ‘live’ for 70 years, that is a very long time to be encapsulated inside an outer casing! Yet most people neglect and fail to pay attention to this most basic need. Our self imposed and society based necessity lifestyle, creates limitations and problematic situations all of which denigrates our physical bodies health.
Instead of enhancing health, too many people dump all sorts of toxic material into their internal body through their diet and through their lungs, equally bad, applying a similar toxic material to their outer layer ( skin )…
