The 2 Reasons You Lose Motivation

I believe there are only two core reasons we lose motivation and bring about procrastination in our daily lives.

  1. What you’re trying to achieve is simply not that important to you
  2. Overwhelm

(Lesson starts at 1:03)

It’s not that important to you

We all have things in our lives that we’re spontaneously inspired from within to complete. For some of us it’s online gaming, for some it’s raising our children, for other’s it’s socializing with friends and colleagues.

You do not require motivation to do the things you’re spontaneously inspired to do.

On your quest to live an inspired life, one of the wisest decisions you can possibly make is to follow your bliss, and do what you’re inspired from within to do.

“Follow your heart”… Sure, it sounds like an overused cliche… but if it’s really that easy and obvious, why do so few people do it?

Why don’t you do it?

By way of clicking this article tells me there is a high probability you’re not doing what you love to do.

Here’s what I’ve found that may help:

The reason most of us don’t truly follow our heart, and tap the fire of our most inspired mission, is that we have, to some degree, subordinated to limiting cultural conditioning, belief systems and values.

  • Study hard
  • Get good grades
  • Go to college
  • Get a job
  • Buy a house
  • Have a family

This is still the predominant cultural values in the western world!

So what happens if you’re inspired to sit in a dark room and play computer games, but you subordinate to your parents who want you to study hard and get good grades?

Well, you’ll still be spontaneously inspired to play games, but you’ll need motivation to to the things that please Mum and Dad. You’ll need to be manipulated with pain and pleasure. You’ll need treats for co-operating and punishment for disobeying. When you’re not doing what you love doing, you’re living in the animal mind. When you’re doing what you love doing, you transcend the necessity for motivation through pain and pleasure.

The sooner you stop subordinating to the values of others, the sooner you can get on with what is truly inspiring to you.

The longer you spend in subordination, ignoring the calling signs of your soul, the more you’ll live with a cloudy vision of your future, the more you’ll feel lost, and the more external motivation you’ll need.

There are professional gamers making 6 and 7 figures per year now, travelling the world and practicing their art.

There are thousands of bloggers and vloggers making 6 and 7 figures per year now, providing value and serving millions of viewers around the world.

There are authors and coaches making 6 and 7 figures per year now, sharing their knowledge and experience of raising children, socializing, “picking up” romantic partners and every other imaginable and desirable skill.

You do not need to study hard and get good grades to “get on” in today’s world. Good grades and a good job is nothing but a values projection from those with a limited awareness of the possibilities in 2016 and beyond.

Figure out what it is you love by completing the “lanuage of love” process in the video above, and give yourself permission to dedicate your life to something that inspires you.

When you start living your most inspired life, motivation will be a redundant concept of the past.


Get in the right gear

Once you know what you want to dedcate your life to, get in the right gear.

You can have all the desire, inspiration and power in the world – but if you’re trying to become the world champion gamer on your second day in the business, you’re probably in the wrong gear.

Wiser to break down your long term goals into step-by-step, day-by-day actionable chunks that allow you to knock them over gradually.

Life is a marathon, not a sprint. When you’re doing something you’re truly inspired by, your space and time horizons tend to increase, since you’re not looking for an immediate pleasure to pull out of the pain of an unfulfilled soul.

Take it day-by-day, and love the process.


Motivation vs. Inspiration

If you’re a parent, teacher, leader or coach, please pay close attention to the next 3 paragraphs.


Motivation and Inspiration are two very different things. Inspiration comes from within, motivation comes from without. Most teachers and coaches still promote motivation while ignoring the elephant in the room. The elephant being the fact that if you’re motivating someone to do something… then that “something” just isn’t that important to them. If someone is actively seeking motivation from you, they are subordinating to your values, and unconsciously saying “please push me and pull me so I can be more like you”.

This process in itself is nothing to judge negatively, as it’s just part of the essential learning journey for both you and your follower… but understand this: The true leaders on earth who reach the greatest heights don’t need motivation to do what they do. Elon Musk doesn’t need to be motivated to get up and build cars and rockets, he’s inspired from within to do it automatically. Same applies for any true leader. I don’t want my students to look up to me and think I have something they don’t – because it’s not true… and my self-worth is sufficient enough not to require infatuation and subordination from peers. As a leader, please consider giving your followers the freedom to be themselves, rather than trying to create a clone of yourself to have them live out the goals you were never able to acheive.

As we grow up, our true selves are dis-membered by the values injected by teachers, preachers, parents, and peers. So we live a scattered life of “shoulds” and “ought to’s”, unconsciously trying to appease the authorities that have become the authors of our existence. To uphold these injected values requires motivation. I believe that as soon as we re-member who we truly are, and get back to our most authentic self, we will no longer require motivation from without. Giving yourself permission to live your most authentic life will allow you to tap a never ending source of energy and intelligence from within… it’s called Inspiration.

As a leader, your job is not to motivate. Your job is to help your students remember who they are, and in doing so, give them permission to tap the fire of their soul.

The only 2 income methods in existence

At a fundamental level, there are only two income methods that exist.

  1. Positive Sum Income
  2. Zero Sum Income


The golden rule

The first rule of income is understanding that human beings are the only creatures on earth who believe in the concept of money. So if you’d love to generate income, realize that you’re only going to get it from other humans.

This sounds insultingly obvious, yet in coaching thousands of followers on Snapchat (follow: loopylitez) I speak with people every day who are not grounded in this reality. Many people still think money is somehow going to come from a magic black box computer algorithm system that they purchase online after being promised massive riches in short periods of time. Even online income generation methods have a human element. You can ONLY get income from other humans.


So how do you obtain income from others?

  1. Either have them willingly transfer it to you (Positive Sum)
  2. Beat them at a game you’ve both agreed to play (Zero Sum)


Postive Sum

Positive Sum income is generated by providing a product or service that others need and want.

Examples include:

  • Having a regular 9-5 job
  • Creating a business that serves others
  • Selling clothes online
  • Opening a restaurant
  • Creating a stall at the markets
  • Being a salesman
  • Inventing and selling a gadget
  • Creating an app
  • Writing a book
  • Entertaining people (comedy, online vlogs etc)


zero Sum

Zero Sum income is generated by playing a game with others, where you both agree to the rules, and you beat them consistently over time through skill and experience.

Examples include:


Tips and Tricks

Having now built 7 primary income streams that collectively generate 7 figures per year in both Postive and Zero sum methodologies, here’s my top 3 tips and tricks for both Positive Sum and Zero Sum businesses:

Postive Sum Tips

    1. Start with what you love doing, something you’re good at and something you’re a leader in. Ask others in that space what they need.
    2. Create a product or service that allows you to solve people’s problems and contribute positively to their lives.
    3. Do what you love and love what you do. The love you put into serving your clients will correlate to the amount of money you make.

Zero Sum Tips

    1. Learn the rules of the game, inside out and back-to-front. Don’t dabble. Don’t make it a hobby. Make it a business.
    2. Learn to control your emotions. Your mathematical edge in profitable Zero Sum businesses can be learned in weeks. The mindset component could take years.
    3. Don’t reinvent the wheel. Find a formula, strategy or system that comes with coaching and invest in accelerating your results. Try starting here.

Take a look at EURJPY DAILY CHART.

We have what looks to be a 3-month triangle pattern that has just broken out to the upside.

If you remember from our last Chart Watch Wednesday, we mentioned that we do not like to trade pattern breaks because the probability of the trade isn’t as high as trading the break & retest of the pattern.

With that being said here is a live example of what we’re talking about. After the triangle broke out to the upside we seem to be pulling back to retest the 2 downward sloping trend lines and the 50 EMA that have both been very well respected. This area also lines up with the 0.5 Fibonacci retracement area and coincides with the bullish MACD as well.

Some deceleration and bullish candlesticks patterns at this confluence area could be what starts the move to the upside in this pair.


Avoid Trading


This is something new traders have a hard time understanding. Oftentimes, a newbie will think that because high impact news announcements creates larger price movements, that they’ll make more profit.

More often, what happens is that price goes in favor of the trader, triggers him into the position, and then shortly after (due to volatility), he gets stopped out. Only to see the trade go back in his favor once the hype of the news announcement dies off.

There will always be another trade, therefore we see no point in risking our precious capital on a trade subject to such volatility.

Infinite Prosperity we never trade 24H before NFP (Non-Farm Payroll) or any Central Bank related news (Speeches, Rate decisions, Minutes).

This tip has saved us money time and time again, and we are sure it will do the same for you.




We have what looks to be a clean 1-year triangle pattern

The fact that this has been forming for a such a long time increases the significance and reliability of the pattern. Triangles usually breakout after the pattern is 70% complete.

In Infinite Prosperity we don’t trade breakouts (per se) because the probability of success when trading the breakout isn’t as high as the probability of success when waiting for the breakout + retest.

We are not in this trade as of yet, but as outlined above we will look at potential setups as soon as we see a breakout and retest of the triangle.
