The Bridges of Madison County - A Cautionary Tale
I’ve been coming back to old movies recently and watched one of my favorite movies of all time – “The Bridges of Madison County” with my favorite actress, Meryl Str...

Brooklyn vs. Manhattan
It’s funny how Manhattan and Brooklyn are different, even though they are only a river away. They are actually just one subway stop away (which is a few minutes’ distance). A lot of peop...

Women’s Surf Film Festival
I finally attended Women’s Surf Film Festival that took place at Rockaway Beach Surf Club on the last Friday and Saturday of July. I didn’t see all the movies (they’re mostly short...

Birthday
35 years ago, a miracle happened and I came into this world. And everything changed. I’m kidding. Nothing changed, except for the fact that the world got a bit confused. When I was a little ...

Yelp & Health
If you are running a restaurant business in NYC, you always fear of two things: Health Department and Yelp reviews. Health Department comes to a restaurant once a year and checks everything &ndash...

Racism Is Still Alive
I just had a chance to watch a new movie called “Crown Heights” and I must say it was a really painful screening for me. Had I watched it back in Poland, I would probably look at it as j...

Trends for Life
September just started and brought with it not only Pumpkin Spice Latte (of which I wrote a year ago on Just Like NY), but also some “trends” for this Fall and Winter. And I guess for li...

Step 40 – Do You Always Need To Change?
I keep writing about change and about how important it is to work on yourself in order to become the best version of oneself, but I also believe that there are times that you really shouldn’t ...

The Worst Type of Guy You Should Always Avoid
I recently watched one of Matthew’s Hussey’s videos (I wrote about him on Just Like NY already), and he said a very interesting thing: the most dangerous man for a woman is not a guy who...

Step 39: The Map of Happiness
Do you think that something like a map of happiness really exists…? I believe it does. I just watched an interview (on Impact Theory again; which is the YouTube channel I mentioned you a few ...

NY ID CARD
NY is full of paradoxes, as is the whole United States. You can clearly see it just about every situation when you have to deal with something “official”. Last year, NY mayor De Blassio ...

Step 38 – Don’t give up on this year yet
  We are in the middle of August and that means that over 7 months of this year are gone. But the good news is that 5 of them are still left. It’s almost half of the year! 5 months is roug...

Step 35 - Get Yourself Motivated

added: 2017-07-25 , category: Transform Yourself

I listened to an interesting interview some time ago, in which a girl from a small village asked what to do to get yourself motivated if you can’t motivate yourself and you don’t have people around you who would think the way you do. And Moran Cerf,  a professor of neuroscience , answered that if you can’t get any motivation from your peers or family, the thing that would work similar to that is reading books, watching interviews or videos, or listening to things that interest you (your favorite podcasts, recordings, etc.). This is the way to stimulate your brain and get yourself to a different state (here’s a link to the interview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PE0TedFPgH8 ).

I usually listen to few people and I don’t do it every day. I do it once or twice a week on YouTube. One of those people is Tony Robbins, who always is able to lift me up and give me some dose of reality. A huge dose of reality I definitely get from the guy I mentioned recently here, Gary Vee – I love his direct way of putting things out there. I would also listen to Oprah Winfrey, whom I finally appreciated after I moved to US – she’s a very wise and powerful woman. I want to be like her.

I also get motivated, or rather inspired, by Lisa Nichols and Marisa Peer.

Another woman on my list to watch is Marie Forleo and her YouTube channel, Marie.Tv. Her interviews on there always motivate me. I would also mention the Polish fitness trainer, Ewa Chodakowska, who motivates me to work out. 

Also, I’m a diehard fan of Impact Theory YouTube channel. Tom Bilyeu does amazing job
and he was able to inspire thousands of people through his show (he interviews accomplished people – athletes, artists, entrepreneurs).

I read Simon Sinek, Tim Ferriss, and I have Keith Ferrazzi and Ryan Holiday on my to read list.

I bet there are a few other names that I don’t recall right now, but I just want you to know that it’s very easy to find your mentors, even if you live in a small town and think that you’re trapped.

But what’s very important is that I have a few friends – I call them my Master Mind group – whom I text with almost every day. We support each other, because this path of change, transformation and growth is not easy. You’re not pumped every day; you have ups and downs. There are days when it’s really challenging to motivate yourself to do anything. And there are the days when you feel so powerful, you want to share this energy with others.

 

I encourage you to find someone who will inspire and support you. It could be a member of your family, your friend, people from your community, or people like those I mentioned above. It’s important to keep your brain rolling, to not stay trapped within the same thinking patterns. Get yourself exposed to new things and get yourself inspired. Don’t get stuck in your own head.
