Yes, I am a bit embarrassed to admit that it took me THIS long to figure out how to motivate myself to practice. As it turns out, it has far less to do with patience and discipline than I thought.
You just need to give yourself a bunch of cliffhangers!
Livestreaming my practice sessions on Twitch has been such an amazing blessing in my life. I was scared that I would end up practicing only as a show, but quite the opposite has happened. These livestreams are the only time I practice. They're real! That's why I'm discovering so many things about myself that I hadn't noticed before. And now that I'm constantly motivated to practice, I keep discovering more things that I want to improve...
And the cycle continues. I've found my drive!
If you haven't found your drive yet, I hope you find it soon! Maybe try out my tips as a starting point and take things from there. :) You got this!
