Find your reasons

Author: Chaten

Life can get tough. Sometimes there just isn’t any motivation to do anything. But don’t panic when you feel this way. These kinds of feelings affect every single one us at one point or another.

When a lack of motivation overwhelms you,look for the things that keep me going, the things that you’re grateful for and thankful for, like your family or friends. Just knowing about the reasons why you do things can have a huge impact on your motivation when it’s time to do the work that you need to do.

We humans rely so much on the people around us. They provide for us and we have fun with them. They are one of the biggest inspirations for our success and happiness. This is something that is great to think about whenever you’re feeling down, or don’t feel like doing anything. When you feel this way, you should look to the people around you as your inspiration in achieving your goals. Whether it be to make our friends and families proud, to help them live better lives, or just so that you have more time to be around them.

When a lack of motivation overwhelms you,look for the things that keep me going, the things that you’re grateful for and thankful for, like your family or friends.

If you can figure out why you do the things you do, you become capable of deciding if those things are really worth doing. For example, look at school. Most of us don’t always want to go to school or do our school work, but in the end it only benefits us. One of the reasons we go to school is so that we can learn about the world before we’re all thrown into adulthood.

It’s also important to look at the things you don’t enjoy doing, and find the reasons behind why you do have to do them, the purpose that they serve. When you stop doing the things that have no purpose, it will give you more time to focus on the things that really do matter to you, and will truly benefit you.

Finding your motivation helps you to focus and reach your goals faster. Whenever you’re feeling down about work or don’t feel inspired, think about why you’re doing that work, and how you will benefit from doing it.

Think about the reasons that you need to do it, and if the reasons genuinely matter to you, you’ll find it much easier to get that work done.

It might help to write down your reasons, and keep them in a place you can easily revisit, to frequently remind yourself why you’re doing the things you’re doing.
