Feeling unmotivated? discouraged maybe? Have you lost the zeal to do that thing you’re supposed to be doing right now? Yeah, I totally get you. I’ve been in this particular situation for the past one month, yup! That’s the exact reason for the lack of posts, and also the reason for this post…
Question: What do you do when you’re feeling unmotivated? (The comment box is your friend and so am I!)
So while I was in one of my sulky states, I thought, why don’t I write a post about this…after struggling with myself for days, I am finally here! By the way HAPPY NEW MONTH GUYS! It’s a special month, know why? It’s my birth month!!! But more on that later, back to the topic of the day…What to do when you don’t feel motivated.
Let’s talk about how terrible the feeling of being unmotivated is for a while shall we? Sometimes it’s like a black hole, sucking you deeper and deeper into nothingness and “I don’t care-ness”…you lose interest in any and everything, sometimes those things that mean a lot to you. It is not a nice feeling at all! The truth is, there is no one formula for dealing with this, but I will give you a few tips to point you in the direction of what might work for you. Here goes…in no particular order of course
No, i’m not running an ad for Nike, and yes it is easier said than done, sometimes you just don’t feel like doing anything, I totally get this. But most times, all you need is to just start and the motivation will catch up with you. Lack of motivation doesn’t mean lack of interest, so I believe that as long as you’re interested in what you’re doing, motivation will definitely show its face once you push that ‘start’ button…in your mind.
When I have a lot going on at a time, or when I am trying to do too much at once, I tend to feel overwhelmed and then I just shut down…my motivation to do anything just slithers away without a warning. So I realized that settling down and focusing on just one goal at a time does the trick. Somewhere along the line, when you’re making headway with that particular one, motivation for the others will kick in.
Inspiration could come from people who are currently doing what you’re doing or who have achieved the goals you are looking to achieve. You can Google the goals you are looking to achieve and read about how others achieved their goal. It is sure to give you the inspiration you need.
I get email updates of new posts from bloggers all the time, and although I felt guilty for not blogging, it went a long way in inspiring me and here I m today. It works!
So guys, those are 4 of my Purple Nuggets on this topic…hmmm “Purple Nuggets”…I just might make that a thing, what do you think?
Like I said earlier, the comment section is your friend and so am I! Friends relate, discuss and share ideas right? So what are we waiting for? Let’s get talking!
