Who doesn’t have dreams and aspirations in life? I think most of us do. If this is so, then why is it that some people seem to reach their goals in life while others don’t? Is it that there are those who are just lucky? Is it that those who achieve their goals have more talent than others? Is it that it was in their destiny to reach those goals while it was not in the destiny of those who didn’t achieve their goals? I think one of the reasons, because there can be many reasons as to why some achieve their goals while others don’t, lies on feeling unmotivated. If this is the case, then how can one take action when feeling unmotivated?
There are different ways you can approach this. The first one would be to ask yourself what motivates you to want to do whatever it is that you would like to do. The reason for you wanting to take action would need to be strong in order for you to stick with it. When there is emotion attached to whatever it is that you want to do, you are more compelled to stick with whatever it is that you want to do. By attaching emotion to it, you are making your reason strong enough so that you can stick with your decision even when the going gets tough.
Once you figure out what motivates you to take action towards something and you make sure you attached emotion to it, since we are emotional beings and whether we realize it or not, a lot of the decisions that we make are based on how we feel about things, keep reminding yourself what is motivating you to do something. There will be times when the going will get tough and so you will need reminders as to why you decided to do what it is that you are doing in the first place.
Another important factor to remember is that if you rely on feeling motivated in order to take action then you may never start or reach your goals. It is important to remember that motivation is fleeing, therefore, you can’t rely on this. If you want to reach any goal, you need determination and discipline. Motivation is only good at first to get you started but not necessary to keep you going. You’re not always going to feel motivated to do what you need to do. Just like when going to school, you want to have the degree and there are times you don’t feel like writing papers but you know you have to write that paper in order to pass the class and you have to pass the class in order to graduate. Same thing applies to everything else in life.
What does this have to do with your well-being and your life in general? I think this has a lot to do with your well-being and life in general because there are lots of things that many people want but just don’t seem to get motivated to do what they need to do such as losing weight, or eating better to manage an illness they may have or even get the motivation to get the training for a new job. These are just some examples of how feeling unmotivated can interfere with your overall well-being so it is important to know how to overcome it. Your well-being depends on many things and when you let the lack of feeling motivated stand in your way, depending on the circumstances, this can be detrimental to you and your life in general. Therefore, it is important to know that motivation indeed can be fleeing so it is not always reliable. It is your discipline and determination that will count the most.
