What to Do When Motivation Is Gone #motivation #inspiration

Woke up one morning, staring at nowhere, mind blank, cannot think, feeling burned out, motivation gone, no idea what to do.

When did life become a routine?

Who were you kidding?

What was that about changing the world?

What about that dream?

That goal you had in mind?

How about the task you were suppose to do today?

Have you ever had those days?

In simple words, today you just don't feel like doing anything.

Everyone feels this way at some point in their lives, life became a routine, your dreams are dying, you're feeling lazy, you want change, you're tired, you want out. But the question remains;

What should I do next?

Remind yourself who you're doing this for

Why are you waking up every morning to get ready for work? is it for your kids? a promotion?

It's easy to forget why we do the things we do when life suddenly becomes a routine. A simple reminder why you started in the first place might get you back on track.

Do something different

Life has become a routine, to break a routine you must do something different. Try starting your day with exercise. Jog outside or do 100 push ups. After accomplishing a workout first thing in the morning, you're now ready to accomplish more tasks for the day.

Stop comparing yourself to others

Feeling miserable because you're living in a small apartment with pizza for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while that rich man on the internet is living the life with a nice house and eating a $100 meal? If you're going to compare, try comparing yourself to a beggar with no food, no home, no legs.

Look at what you have and not what you don't have. Maybe this might also motivate you to help others.

Take a break

Just like your phone, you need to recharge when you're feeling low. Call your boss, tell him you need to recharge, if he really needs you, ask him if you can work from home for the moment. Besides, how productive will you be if you're on low batteries.

Go on a vacation

Go some place different, a nice beach in the Philippines, the mountains, or Machu Picchu in Peru. The world is for you to see, don't get stuck in a cubicle. After the vacation you'll feel inspired, renewed and you might have the answers to your question "what's next?" It could be the decision to move on to a different career. Or simply the motivation to continue.

Read a book

Before you go to bed, prepare for the next day by reading a book. I suggest one that is inspirational, motivating; or any book that teaches you a new skill for your next Project.

How about you? what would you do?
