5 Ways To Motivate Yourself (When You Feel Like Everything Sucks)

GIF

Humans have a hard time of reaching goals, whether it's to get ahead at work, succeed in school, get healthy, sober, whatever. It's tough. Things aren't black and white and when the chips are down we tend to give up.

I'd like to share some of the ways I've climbed out of the pit of apathy I found myself in.

1. Find a support system.

Most of the time when people screw up, or get off track it's because they don't feel like anyone is rooting for them. I definitely found that in my own life. When you acknowledge your friends, family and the other people that have your back, you start to take responsibility for your actions, and thus, your motivation.

When others have a high opinion of you, it starts to have an impact on what you think of yourself. So surround yourself with positive people.

2. Find your "Inspiration"

music has gotten me through some of my darkest times.

If your thing isn't music: find out what that is. Your inspiration and motivation will come from within, but it will also be kick-started by the things you love.

3. Remember that working hard doesn't necessarily mean you're motivated.

Make your desk cuteMotivation isn't always a big, sweeping feeling that makes you feel invincible, it comes in little steps.

4. Pick affirmations that really speak to you.

Not everyone responds to those cliche, "You can do it!" motivational things.

Make sure that your motivational style meshes with your personality, and never, ever be ashamed if you don't fit in with the societal ideals behind it.

5. Look up other people's failures.

because lots of extremely successful people who have totally sucked in the past.

Remember that! We got this.
