Im no stranger to feeling stuck in life.

I trained with some of the best coaches on the planet during my 20-year sports career, and again when I competed in the 2008 Olympics. But when I wanted to start my own companyandshare my knowledge about motivational psychology and training with others, it wasnt as easy as I thought it would be.

Launching a new business is not easy. You have to give up the comforts of a stable paycheck anddelve into an unpredictable abyss. A lot of things keep us from making that leapthings like fear and insecurity. One thing in particular holds us back more than the rest: motivation.

When I looked back on my days as an athlete, I understood what was different. I remembered what (or who) made me push myself even when I didnt want to. The difference was, as an athlete, I had structured days and a coach to report to. Structure keeps us focused and a coach keeps pushing and challenging us.

Thankfully, I passed this stage and foundedOnbotraining, an online coaching service that helps people achieve their goals. I decided to collect the lessons Ive learned along the way and share them with others, like you, who are striving to better themselves.

So, here are my 10 best tips for achieving anything you want in life:

1. Focus on Commitment, Not Motivation

Just how committed are you to your goal? How important is it for you, and what are you willing to sacrifice in order to achieve it? If you find yourself fully committed, motivation will follow.

2. Seek Knowledge, Not Results

If you focus on the excitement of discovery, improvement, exploration, and experimentation, your motivation will always be fueled. If you focus only on results, your motivation will witherthe minute you hit an obstacle. The key is to focus on the journey, not the destination. Keep thinking about what you are learning along the way and what you can improve.

3. Make the Journey Fun

Its an awesome game! The minute you make it serious, theres a big chance it will turn intoa heavy emotional weight and you will lose perspective,becoming stuck again.

4. Get Rid of Stagnating Thoughts

Thoughts influence feelings, and feelings determine how you view your work. You have a lot of thoughts in your head, and you always have a choice of which ones to focus on: the ones that will make you emotionally stuck (fears, doubts) or the ones that will move you forward (excitement, trying new things, stepping out of your comfort zone).

5. Use Your Imagination

The next step after getting rid of negative thoughts is to use your imagination. When things go well, you are full of positive energy. When you are experiencing difficulties, you need to be even more energetic. So rename your situation. If you keep repeating I hate my work, guess which feelings will rise to the top? Its a matter of imagination! You can always find something to learn, even from the worst boss in the world at the most boring job.
