As I sit stirring my tea clockwise, I feel a lot happier than the moment before — the negative vibe isn’t hanging around anymore. BUT I feel lost! What is the purpose of the day? What makes today different for any other day of the week?
But what do you do when you don’t have the motivation to do anything? Usually, on a good day, I would expand my knowledge on witchcraft, write a blog post or read some friction but not today I don’t feel like myself. I need some inspiration in my life!
How to get yourself unstuck.
By setting a daily goal or tasks, you won’t burn out quickly. Today I set myself time-consuming task first thing. I didn’t take regular breaks and know I’m paying for it! This is because I was doing more than 2 goals at one. It’s not possible – I’ve tried it numerous time and look where it’s left me! MENTALLY DRAIN and NEEDING a nap. I might take a 30 min kip and see if I’m revitalised after that.
Getting yourself excited about a goal sounds obvious, but many people don’t think about it much, and I’m one of them, but it makes sense. If you want to get motivated you honestly need to get passionate about a goal.
How can you find excitement when I'm not feeling it?
Try finding inspiration, looking at what others have achieved or who are currently doing your goal will encourage you to succeed. Do this step along with building anticipation will help feel excited and to gather relevant information to achieve your goal.
7 Great Ways To Overcome Loss Of Motivation.
1. Remember Why You Want to Do It at First
When you feel no motivation at all, it is because the reason behind what you’re doing is not strong enough. Most of the time, people stop smoking because they have a firm intention, if they continue to smoke, they may suffer serious health problem and might lose their love ones.
2. Envision the Success If You Do It and Feel the Regret If You Don’t Do It.
If you think that visualization does not work, try to imagine vividly that you walk to your kitchen, open your fridge’s door, you see a big yellow lemon, and you take it out. Feel your hands pressure, hear the squeeze sound and imagine the sour lemon juice gets into your mouth. Come on, this is just visualization, and it is not real, but why did you get more saliva in your mouth?
Think about it, if your dream is to drive a Mercedes Benz, imagine the vivid picture of you driving. Imagine the model you want, the colour, the feels when you sit in, the smell of leather, feel the steering and hear the sound of the engine roaring.
Do you think your mind will eventually make it real one day?
The point is this, when you imagine and visualize things in your mind, you will feel motivated to do it.
3. Create a Supportive Environment.
Do you know that your surroundings and your environment can affect your mood?
On the other hand, if you are surrounded by negative people who always gossip and talk about other people, you will feel negative and have no motivation to work as well.
4. Change Your Physiology and Stay in Action
Try to feel down and sad, think about all the dreadful things that happened to you and notice your physiology. Conversely, if you are feeling kind and energetic, your physiology will be in a certain way as well. When you change your physiology, you will improve your state as well.
5. Let Others Motivate You
What you can do is to spend a minimum of 30 minutes each day to read an inspiring book every morning before you start your day. This way, you will make sure you kickstart in the right state of mind and can go through the day even if it is a rough day.
6. Dream Big, Start Small, and Act Now
When you dream, you have to imagine big so that your dream can inspire you. When your motivation is gone; start small. Just like if you have no motivation to call your customers, try to start small and invite-only a few.
7. Take Breaks When Needed
Remember, success is not a destination; it is a journey that you need to go through for an extended period. Many people mistake success as doing something great, and that success will come over overnight. Almost all the successful people who have accomplished amazing results can do so because they persist long enough.
