Getting into gear and taking Action is usually preceded some form of clarity. At times, this clarity can be of the painful variety.
For example, the loss of love, financial stress or becoming unemployed can raise our awareness quickly.
Other motivators can be found in boredom or lack of direction. The important thing to consider is that once Activated, our motivation shifts. The shift can often reshape our thoughts, feelings and emotions from those of scarcity to those of abundance.
The goal is to be compelled to Action naturally.
As opposed to being forced into Acting in reaction to circumstance.
