Cocaine is a helluva drug
Motivation comes from the reason, the why. For example if you’re going to the gym because you were told it’s the right thing to do, it won’t stick. You need an underlying reason to do something. Sometimes you need to remind yourself of the reasons.
I go to the gym because I really enjoy it. It helps me mentally, physically and I love the way the way it makes me feel.
Many other hobbies over the years I have stopped quite simply because on reflection I don’t enjoy them. I’ve tried forcing them but it doesn’t work. I no longer game, I used to be a heavy gamer. It wasn’t fun anymore, but over the years I have tried a few more times to get back into it and failed.
Go ser your doctor and get Prozac or download THE latest wow expansion and join a Raid guild.
Discipline > motivation
Fixed. Nothing like a heroic dose of entheogens to change your perspective on life and get out of your chair.
You need to surround yourself with more positive people, which will motivate you to do better things in life.
^^^ And also watch a few motivational videos on youtube, they are a great way to start and get into the correct mindset and self-care.
Two good channels:
Sadghuru also has some great talks that millions around the world find inspiring and motivational. Having watched a few, the guy's rather brilliant, especially having read about his past, how he grew up etc.
Essentially nobody can tell you what to do to be motivated in xyz. Only you can once you've found your medium to do so. How you find it depends on what stimulus methods you are absorbing. Could be youtube, could be social media, could be face to face talking to people. Everyone else can simply just help you reach that medium.
Remember to that some of the most motivated people around the world had to discover their motivation for themselves. And that message is quite clear watching just even a handful of videos in some of the above channels.
Dont give up and always try your best to be positive everyday and dont let those negative things creep back in your head
Telling someone to use Prozac ? well done .
You chose that as the lesser of 2 evils..... Lol
I dont think there is anything lesser lol about Prozac
Spoken like a survivor. Stunning and brave.
I store the food & drink out of arms reach so got to get up out of my chair or bed to go to the fridge an get it...
You could take the batteries out the remote controls for the TV etc
It's an PC forum 90% of people here have probably survived, surviving a loss of motivation and depression.
The others buy sports cars to cope.
Sometimes I find it hard to get outside on my kayak. It's a hassle setting out all up etc and it's so easy just to stay in.. But I know if I don't do anything on a weekend I'll feel like ****. So I just literally have to mentally force myself to do it
Always better to do something than nothing
Must admit being in a relationship does help to get out and do something
i get this with body boarding in winter ,felt like a blu ray day today but knew excercise was due so forced myself to drive to Polzeath ,then felt so pleased i had gone ,felt energised then ,even cleaned the car
Short-term goals, medium-term goals and long-term goals. Goals, goals and more goals.
