247: What to do when you lose motivation

It’s easy to be motivated at the beginning of a goal or when things are going well…but what happens when resistance sets in and you lose your drive? What happens when your teammates aren’t as motivated as you and it starts to weigh on you? In this episode, I break down how to attack that problem, get to the root cause, and get back on your gangsta shit. Because that’s what needs to happen.

Take a listen and get inspired to re-engage on what you really want in life.
