Have you ever known someone who was anti-motivated?
Anti-Motivated [an-tee moh-tuh-veyt·ed]: to be motivated to make fun of those who are motivated.
A common example is the unheatlhy person who pokes fun at people who eat healthy or exercise. I bet you know someone like this, but I also bet you know someone who was like that, but then shocked everyone, including themselves, by starting to live healthy. Oh, it gets even better. The new convert soon starts feeling so good that they become what I affectionately call annoyingly motivated.
Annoyingly Motivated [an-noy-ing-ly moh-tuh-veyt·ed]: to be so motivated that you are compelled to try to motivate others, regardless if they want to hear it.
The video in the previous post is a great example of this in action. What’s the message? What does this tell us about human nature? Simple. You can change in amazing and positive ways regardless of your age, stage of life, circumstances… and the only person standing in your way is yourself.
Andy also wrote the book Change Your Day, Not Your Life, a guide to sustained motivation and more productivity.
