Are you alive?
Do you embrace life with every fiber of your being?
Are you pursuing goals that stir your passions?
If you didn’t answer yes to these questions, why not?
Finding that one special “thing” that motivates you is imperative for success. But sticking with it takes effort and dedication.
Even if you have found your passion, the temptation to procrastinate can be more powerful than settling into the grunt work of fulfilling your potential.
Be honest, your lack of motivation is a direct result of your thinking, which plays out in bad habits and excuses. These can include gluttony, laziness or refusing to wake up on time for work.
Allowing yourself to be overwhelmed by the power of negative emotions when you have deadlines to meet, subconsciously supports your case for being less than.
Come on, you know something is seriously wrong when the task you should have finished several days ago, sits idly on your desk untouched.
Or when you can’t even force yourself to confront a problem that’s keeping you from living a quality life.
So how can you get motivated and shake off the shackles of despair?
Start by identifying what’s holding you back. Observe your thoughts and identify self-defeating patterns in your thinking. Especially notice how perceptions and behavior affect other aspects of your life, which are not obviously related to what triggers your lack of motivation.
For example, maybe you just didn’t feel like getting up after your alarm went off one morning? The next day, you do the same thing, until a pattern develops, becoming a general lack of motivation and a bad habit.
Meet the challenge of recognizing destructive patterns of behavior and nullify them. This is the only way to maximize your talents and realize success.
