I struggle with motivation in many areas of my life. It’s not just about sticking to a budget, it’s about my general tendancy to go gung-ho and then lose interest. I’m not the only one, thank goodness; Dave Ramsey talks about the need to maintain gazelle intensiveness, Oprah has talked about daily journaling of five good thing to help keep her momentum up. But it’s still a struggle.
I have found that if I forgive myself the small slips I’m much less likely to fall offtrack in a big way. How about you? How do you stay motivated for the long haul?
