Sometimes it’s hard to find motivation. In work, in school, or anything else finding motivation for these things can be tough. Some days you just don’t feel like doing anything. My bed is so comfy that 99 percent of the time I rarely want to get out of bed in the morning. I hit the snooze button a couple hundred times, but eventually I pull myself together and get out of bed. Sometimes I would rather sit in my bed and do nothing than actually do homework or study. Being motivated is so hard, but we have to be motivated in order to be successful. We all know this, but yet sometimes we still lack the motivation to do so.
However, I have found some things that have been helpful in motivating me. Firstly, you should surround yourself with people who are going to inspire you to do better and be the best you there is. If you surround yourself with people who aren’t motivated in their work or school life than it will be hard for yourself to be motivated as well. This year I have happened upon a person who is the most dedicated person I know inside and out. She is amazing. You find amazing people in your life when you least expect it, and she is one of those people. She has motivated me in my schoolwork and in my personal life. She has motivated me in wanting to reach my goal and to not give up on it. She has motivated me to want to become fit. She has motivated me to get my life together, to take the extra step, to not sleep that extra hour, and to work hard on loving myself before loving someone else. And most of all she has motivated me to be a better person overall. Sometimes you need these type of people in your life to give you a little push, because you couldn’t push yourself that extra step. I am forever thankful for our paths crossing.
Another step in order to become a motivated person is getting enough sleep. Half the time I’m not motivated is because I stayed up way to late the night before and I am way too tired to even be motivated. We need to take care of our bodies. Getting enough sleep will help you become a more motivated person.
Also, in order to be motivated you can’t look at everything so negatively. Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. Things aren’t always going to go your way. You can’t give up the fight when this happens. Stay motivated. Remember your goal and every step you have taken to get you where you are today.
I sometimes find motivation when I think about everything I want to achieve. I have really high goals, one of them moving to New York to pursue my career. When I think about New York I automatically have the motivation for whatever is on my plate. If I don’t work really hard then New York isn’t realistic for me. That’s my motivation. You can’t just wish for your dreams to come true. You have to go out there and get them yourself. No one is going to hand you your dreams. If you work hard enough and find the motivation then your dreams will come true. And it will no longer be a dream, but it will be your life. You have to fight through the bad days to earn great days.
Of course some days you just won’t feel motivated, but don’t let that become a routine. Have one bad day, but have a 1,000 great ones. In the end it will all be worth it.
