Lack of motivation

Need a little extra motivation? The first step to combat lack of motivation is to detect mood thieves

Motivation is great. It’s an extreme source of energy, desire and makes what you love easier.

Motivation guides us through life and scares away the unwillingness to do things.  It makes us have energy and willingness to carry out tasks and overcome challenges on a daily basis.

If you are constantly asserting yourself:

8 Tips to Combat Lack of Motivation

Motivation is very important to combat the unwillingness to get things done.

But when it ends, we don’t know what to do. Things lose their meaning and we have no desire to act. When that happens, things stop making sense and we are inert towards life.

So we need to be careful, because some things around us can be draining our motivation and making us prostrate.

So, before motivation ends your engagement, try to resolve this to prevent the lack of motivation from affecting you and your routine.

Here are some motivation killers you need to know about.

8 Things That Suck Your Motivation and You Need To Know

#1. Negative people

Negative people have a common goal: to bring you down and drain your motivation. Negative people are like zombies: they want to bring you to their side.

These people cannot accept you as you are and therefore they consistently work to invalidate you and leave you unmotivated.

They rarely have anything to contribute, and putting you down (or bringing them to your level) is their way of contributing. Stay away from these leeches.

They often harbor a certain envy for what you do with your life. Regardless of your recent accomplishments or achievements, regardless of whether you think of yourself as a successful person , they will try not only to make you feel bad so they feel better, but to hurt you as well.

If any of these people are in your life, just pull them out of it without hesitation. You deserve the best.

Beware of negative people. They are ready to suck your motivation.

#2. Bad news

We are constantly around some kind of influence: TV, friends, social media, internet and so on.

This influence has the ability to affect us in 2 ways: motivate and make us more confident about ourselves, or it will drain our energy and leave us unmotivated.

Imagine one day, if every influence that existed was positive and everyone was supportive, how would we feel?

We would feel amazing, like we were ready for anything. Negative news, on the other hand, will slowly bring you down, draining and draining our energy and leaving you unmotivated.

#3. Fear of failure

Failure is a big motivation killer. Most of us look at failure the same way: that our effort means nothing and that we don’t get what we want.

This is a misnomer. You haven’t failed something, you’re just looking at failure the wrong way.

Failure is a feedback system. It tells you what you did wrong so you can have the opportunity to correct, reflect and grow next time.

It is an excellent learning tool to avoid lack of motivation.

Don’t let the fear of failure drain your energy.

#4. Inaction

You have dreams, aspirations and goals. But they don’t come true if you don’t act.

What all this requires is a simple correction in your posture. You need to act, no matter how much or how little. Just do things and everything starts to change?

Get things done while there’s still time, before it’s too late.

#5. Do not exaggerate

Don’t overdo it too much. This may seem like the opposite of the point above, but remember you are not a robot. Being productive is great, but there are times when you just need a break.

Taking a break has been a proven exercise to reduce stress, increase productivity, gain a new perspective, and relax.

#6. Forget the past

The past must stay in the past. Leave it there, please.

It’s not here, it’s already happened, so you must move on. This is simple advice, but very difficult to implement.

But, keeping focus on your breath helps you think about the present and the future. Get into the habit of being aware of your breathing: focus on your in-breath, your out-breath, and pause in between.

The issues of the past in our life, besides never being of any use, are always negative. And negative feelings don’t help us with anything and just show us a time in our life when we weren’t happy.

When we become completely involved in our past, we forget everything around us and we lose motivation.

#7. Stop living in the future

Most of us live micromanaging the details of our future. We end up wasting our energy, motivation and thinking in a time that never existed – and that will never be the way we think.

This is the only certainty we can have about our future: it will never turn out as planned.

The only certainty is that nothing is certain. This is why focusing on what we want our future to be is nonsense, and there is only 1 way to create your future: by doing the work that needs to be done now.

#8. Don’t forget yourself

We live in a fast-paced world. Therefore, each of us has responsibilities and tasks that we need to take care of.

But, first of all, we need to remember that we are the priority. Otherwise, we end up unmotivated.

So we need to choose what we want. We need to find time for ourselves, and make our time work for us, not the other way around.

Never forget to put yourself first in your life.

Beware of motivation thieves

We can probably classify the moments in our life that we spend lacking motivation in one of these 8 motivation thieves: or people who wanted to suck our motivation, bad news, weight of the past, the future, and fear of making mistakes and so on.

So we need to be careful. When our motivation ends, everything becomes a burden and we don’t feel like moving forward.

When our energy is contaminated by lack of motivation, we stop doing what gives us pleasure, simply because we no longer have any pleasure in things.

So be prepared to detect and fight these motivation thieves. They will not only kill your motivation and energy, they will also kill your will to live.
