(James singing along to David Bowie’s “Space Oddity”)
What is your motivational hook?
So you’re probably wondering why I’m singing while I’m waxing my board. If you’ve seen [The Secret Life Of] Walter Mitty, a great film, you would have noticed there was a great scene there where he was reluctant to catch a helicopter ride with a drunk guy and I understand that, but the song got him inspired.
It’s his anchor, it’s his motivational hook to get out there and do something inspirational. So that’s why when I’m waxing my board, I sing this song because taking up a new sport like surfing can be really difficult but that song gets me in the mood. It’s my anchor.
So my action step for you today is get yourself a motivational anchor to move into something that you might feel uncomfortable with. I hope you’ve enjoyed this little grab. I’m James Schramko and will talk to you soon but right now, I’ve got to go out and have a surf.
