Have you ever felt that there is no point in following your dreams? … I do feel this way sometimes!
A few days ago for some reason, I just felt with lack of motivation and I felt that I wanted to throw my towel. Then I thought that many of you might go through the same situation sometimes so I decided to write about How to Find Motivation.
You could loose motivation for various reasons. One might be that you feel so behind in life comparing to other people you know, or you feel that you are getting so old!…so fast!, and that time is passing by quickly and you won´t have enough time to do all you want to in this life time. You also might be feeling that some people don’t even understand what you are trying to do in in this life and that pursuing your dreams is childish.
With so much lack of motivation and inspiration we put everything on hold (your goals /your dreams) and also you start doing things that other people think are better for you. Things such as to work a 9 to 5 job (a job that you totally hate), get married and have children before you turn 35 years old (eventhough you only want a life partner and travel around the world).
so this is the part when we ask ourselves: should I even bother to continue fighting for my dreams?
THE ANSWER TO THAT IS AlWAYS YES!!
How to Find Motivation
I know that most of us get to feel some lack of motivation here and there but for some of us this happens more often than we would like to, but something I’m proud of myself is that I have come to understand my feelings better and now I’m able to catch myself when I’m in this horrible state of mind.
I feel that now I’m able to determine when I’m lacking motivation and I try to get out of this as soon as possible with all the tools I’ve found work best for me and I think they will work just as great for you too.
So here I share what I do to Find Motivation to help myself feel I want to conquer the world!!
Close your eyes for 5 seconds
This is the number one thing I do, so take a deep breath…very deep breath, and smile…smile to yourself. Be grateful for being alive and having this precious time dedicated to your well being. So do it now…I’m serious! do it ;)… Just doing this, you’ll feel a little bit better right away.
Personal development books to me are an amazing treasure in this life. There have been so many books that have touched me and literally have change the way I think . Some books have moved me so much that they’ve helped me re-design my life.
I try to buy one personal development book once a month. I keep my night stand always stack with at least 3. I’m currently reading “Who will cry when you die?” By Robyn Sharma and one that I read not too long ago is one of Tony Robbins oldest books “Awaken the Giant Within”.
In side of the reading section I will include quotes: I read quotes many times a week and now I understand why people write great quotes on post it and put them on the walls and on the mirror. You could also create a board on pinterest dedicated to motivational quotes. I go through them any time I need a little motivational boost. This is my pinterest board in case you would like to go through mine and pin the quotes I have to yours.
My fave quote
There are other times where I get my Motivational caffeine by either watching a movie. My fave motivational movies are The pursuit of happiness, Working girl, Men of honor and The devils wears prada.
Besides cinematherapy, I also like to watch small motivational videos that I’ve found on Youtube. These are ted talks and copilations from great motivational speeches. I keep adding them to my motivational list so I can have them handy when I need them.
Click here to get access to My Playlist so you can see the videos I watch to find motivation. Below I share what I believe is one of the best short motivational videos. I beg you to at least watch this one,It will shift your mindset instantly.
I’m sure that If you do today at least one of the things I mention today, You will change your perspective on how you look at things in this moment. This is all you need to feel better and to be ready to fight for your dreams again.
I hope this Post can be useful to you… please let me know if you already do these things and How do you feel after doing them.
