Almost all of us periodically sets ourselves a new goal or challenge — and just as often in the end fails to achieve them. We end up telling ourselves that we’re just not ready yet, that we’ll do it next week, next month...next year.
We might even pursue them with zeal at the start. But once we’ve made a small amount of effort, we’ll tell ourselves we’ve done enough, and it’s time to take this whole ‘starting a new life’ thing more slowly.
Why does it always turn out like this? The answer’s fairly obvious: Because we try to achieve too much, too fast; because we get sick of the new responsibility; because it’s difficult to change old habits and try something new.

Ooo nice one! As a chronic procrastinator, I'm having exactly the same issues with it right now.
Loss of motivation is very complex, I believe, but in here, a specific case is covered.
I know the feeling of it, even such things which we are overly enthusisastic about the beginning, can overload us easily if it's done with too much intensity. I explain it to myself with how creative energy works. Intensity is effective but we should take care of the ratio of how much (creative) energy we use up to the favour of results. Our energy, though, can re-load and we can find our drive again but the swift of these intensities and running outs are quite burdening, and eventually prohibitive. Thrift is a key in here, according to my experiences.

I like the one min. a day approach to allow it to become a habit first, then working on increasing the time.

Old and grumpy... good one.

Thanks for the comments, Sinistra.

It's also said a good support system can work wonders. Finding a group of people with the same interests in order to support the change we which to see in our lives is great.

Definitely. My progress was hard to do on my own. The temple made much of the difference in that regard and the people here. Having a support system is something I think really can make the difference sometimes between failing and pushing through. Being in it alone is tough.

So, I'd say support, but also constantly reminding yourself of the "why"... Hard to push yourself through struggles if you forget why you're enduring it. Why are you doing it, what good will come of it and why is it important to you and others?

And then encouragement. From the self and to the self. Being your own ally through the process. I've noticed a HUGE difference in how I succeed with things after I changed my inner self-talk. We can be excellent at wearing ourselves down, but often find it a lot harder to bring ourselves up. And when we do, when we enforce that positive self-talk and give ourselves more than just judgment, that's when we can start noticing how we're tackling challenge better, with less stress and keeping up the speed and balance, for the most part.

There really isn't any limitation to what we can succeed with, if we have faith in the fact that everything is possible and there's no real reason why we should have to fail.

Just my random thoughts on the topic.

I really like this! I see this all the time in the fitness world. People just starting out want to achieve their goals as fast possible and end up doing programs meant for advanced practitioners who've been working out for years. So they burn out in the first week and forget that fitness is a lifestyle, not a chore.

Stop limiting yourself to titles and labels. You're so much more than a path. You're an individual.
