No matter who you are, what age you are or what you’re going through, there are days where you’re going to have a lull in motivation. It’s normal and there’s certainly nothing wrong with you. It can get problematic if this feeling lingers for longer than it should have. When this happens, you may lack in productivity and mood can significantly be negatively impacted. This is why it is very important to find your motivation once again as soon as possible. There are a number of things you can do to try and get motivated once again. Whether it’s listening to professional speakers or getting physical, motivation isn’t going to plop itself into your lap. The truth is, you need to get up and get chasing that motivation in order for it to happen. Different methods are going to work better for different people, so it’s important to find what works best for you.
Aim For Your Dreams and Goals
One thing that many people do is work a “proper job” in order to get through life, all the while putting their true dreams and desires on hold. Whether it’s because they think their dreams are silly, or they’re unobtainable is to be questioned, but the fact is, so many people stay in their jobs day in and day out, absolutely hating it and their life. One way to get started on actually moving towards a goal you want is to write it down. Write down what your goal is and make it a physical reality. So many people think of ideas and goals, but the thought is often seen as unattainable. By writing it down, you’re making it more realistic, enabling you to start to make things happen.
Set The Bar Low
If you’re feeling overwhelmed and have no motivation, then it’s unlikely that you’ll want to aim for the highest stars and run your first marathon (or whatever your end goal is). Instead, break down your goals to smaller options and set the bar nice and low. Guaranteed, you will feel a lot better about reaching a small goal, which will inevitably help you to get motivated for the next goal. When you’re feeling very low, your goals will be very simple. Even getting out of bed and showering might be a goal. It doesn’t matter if it seems all too silly and simplistic, it’s all about YOUR goals and they therefore must be personal to you and your needs.
When you’re having downtime in your motivation levels, it’s easy to get down on yourself. Telling yourself you’re “lazy” or that you’re “not good enough” is certainly not going to get you working. The key is to be kind to yourself and give yourself some slack. Try and think about yourself as your best friend. If your best friend was in a slump and feeling unmotivated, would you tell them they’re just lazy and may as well just give up? No, you probably wouldn’t (unless you really didn’t like your best friend). You would more than likely tell them everything is ok, they’re doing well and you’d encourage them to try their best, right? Do the same to yourself. If you wouldn’t say something to your best friend, don’t say it to yourself.
Get a Workout Completed
Having a healthy and balanced diet, as well as the right amount of physical exercise, can do wonders for your body. Not only will you be physically in shape, but physical exercise can help your mind. Working out can help with focus, attention and boost energy levels. If you’re starting to feel a slump in motivation, consider taking a break and get moving. Even if it’s a brisk walk outside, this will help immensely. You could even do some stretches to get moving. Whatever works for you, get started on it. If you normally sit down all day for work, stand up. You don’t have to workout to the point where you pass out from exhaustion for it to be effective.
Get Professional Assistance
If you’re in a business and everyone around you is slumped in their own holes of demotivation and stress, it might be time to pick everyone up. A whole office or work environment full of unmotivated individuals is going to suck the life out of your business. A great way to build up team support, work on team building and increase motivational levels is to hire professional speakers. Motivational speakers who specialise in personal and business motivational speaking can help to boost your company and get people inspired to do better, both at work and at home. It’s important to find professional speakers who have had experiences in what you’re hoping to achieve. If you want to build on team spirit at work, a professional speaker who has had experience in team building would be ideal.
Get a Boost from Motivational Videos
It may seem counter-productive to sit and watch videos on Youtube to get motivated, but it can help. If you can’t get a professional speaker into the office to help the team, use the wonders of Youtube to help you get started. There are many different motivational speakers on Youtube who have videos of parts of their speeches to help you get a boost. Find a professional speaker that you feel connected with in some way. Whether they’ve been through the same things you’re going through or you simply just like the way they talk to their audiences, find someone you connect with and watch a few of their videos. This will help you to feel motivated and inspired to get going with your goals in no time.
Don’t Stay Down
If you’re feeling down or unmotivated, stop whining about it. No one else is going to care about how you’re not feeling motivated. Everyone has obstacles to face each and every day. You are no different. But, the key to getting through our troubles is in the way we deal with such troubles. If you get up and get through each obstacle head on, that’s what’s going to define you and make you successful in life. When an obstacle comes and you lay down and feel sorry for yourself, you’re never going to change. If you don’t change anything, nothing will ever change.
Finding motivation can be difficult at times, but it doesn’t have to keep you down and out. You have the ability to make a change to your motivational levels and to get back on track to get what you want in life. The way you approach it is what makes the difference. Whether it’s going out for a run, watching a professional speaker video online or writing out your goals, you have the ability within yourself to find the motivation to make each day count. You only have one life, so make the most of it.
