Motivation allows you to feel great and get what you want from life. It’s hard to get motivated sometimes, even when we want to create or achieve.
Reason 1. You are scared to fail.
You might have a good idea, but as soon as you start to get excited, you think of all the reasons why it won’t work.
It gets you thinking are not good enough, you don’t know how to do it, and you don’t have what it takes. That part of yourself telling that is trying to stop you from feeling sad from failing. However, it would rather let you imagine being successful rather than trying and making a mistake.
Instead, if you see failure as a positive step in growing and developing; showing you the ways that don’t work so that you can find the ways that do, it will mean that you don’t have to fear failure, but instead see it as just a part of achieving success
Reason 2. You are used to short-term gain.
Technology has made life so much easier. You are used to picking up our phone to watch a video, read an article or switching on the T.V. This short-term fix of passivity has to lead to many of us not feeling motivated or willing to put our minds to anything which takes a bit of work.
Learning uses active attention which takes a little bit more time to cultivate and grow. In fact, the thought of being more active can fill you with dread as it is harder work. Stay with it though and eventually, you will enjoy the more laborious sure, but also active and rewarding tasks that get you one step closer to your dream lifeWhich leads us onto reason 3 which is
Reason 3. You don’t have patience.
Patience is a part of life many of us are not used to. You can feel stimulated through other means. For example, you can switch on the TV or play with our Smartphones whenever you want. If you are expected to wait, you feel bored agitated and angry. Why should I have to wait when I can get it right now!
Really though you don’t want to feel that you are out of control. Important things take time and patience is the ability to know that it will happen eventually and takes the intensity not only out of the task at hand but also out of life in general.
