Motivation as the Step to Good Life

With the problems that come along the way, it is oftentimes difficult for a person to maintain a certain level of motivation. It is because more often than not, he or she would only experience disappointment because he or the lady wasnt able to meet the objectives and expectations that are set.

However, inspite of the discouraging times, this is not enough reason to be motivated. In fact, for some people, this can be a good possibility to start anew. These types of hard times can serve as a reason itself for one to be capable of overcome difficulties and triumph over life’s adversities. And when handled properly, folks can get lifelong lessons from these trying times and use it to live a good and contented life.


Experts say that it is only typical for people to sense depression, anxiety and defeat if lifestyle has been giving them numerous tests and trials. However, instead of experience depresses and sulking into the style of defeat, people can use this as an opportunity to make themselves stronger. How? Through the use of these emotions and experiences to motivate his or herself.

Motivating one’s do it yourself is indeed one of the best approaches to live a good lifestyle. This is because if one is motivated well, he or she can established goals that are inside his or her reach. They can also find approaches to deal with defeats without needing to feel anxious or perhaps depressed over a thing that may be beyond his or her control. The following are just some of the ways on how folks can motivate on their own in these trying times:

1. By no means stop learning. Specialists say that once people understand that life is never-ending journey in order to learning, they will be capable of finding ways to their success. To keep one’s self-motivated, it’s a good idea never stop learning because this opens up to new worlds of possibilities that are waiting to be explored. If a person continues learning through read or through trying different things, they might gain more confidence to do things and start with new projects. Additionally, when one continues learning, he or she may acquire newer abilities that can add up to the things which he or she can do.

2. Always have a positive outlook in life. This may some easy for a few but many people are in fact having a hard time building and maintaining a positive outlook in everyday life. Maybe because people have different personalities and various upbringing that affect how they see life in general. If one wants to end up being motivated at all times, he or she must start developing a good outlook in life. You can do this by trying to start to see the good in poor at all time or whenever feasible. If people are capable of overcome obstacles, he or she would soon produce the habit of wrestling with ways that would help them overcome that problem.

3. Prevent too much thinking. When possible, stop thinking constantly over something. It is because thinking would only bring in a mix of inner thoughts that could be harder to handle and manage afterwards. To keep constant self-motivation, 1 must try to veer far from negative thoughts and only consider the things where he or she could something good.

A single must also try not to dwell on things that are beyond control because this will only impair the positive perspective he or she is trying to build.

    Earlier tonight, while visiting my girlfriend, my car was broken into and my Cd player faceplate and ipod were taken, the radio itself was going to be taken, but someone must have scared off the person. I’m curious, what is the motivation for something like this? Can someone be so hard up for money, that they do this? Is it for fun? I was raised to earn what you want and respect other’s property. What is going on in the head’s of people who steal from others?

    I always did my homework and studied with no problem. However, over the past few months I’ve been losing my motivation to do so. If this keeps up, I’m screwed. Any tips? Oh yea and don’t give me any of that “Bro just do it” crap. I’m asking for motivation not shut the fuck up and do it, ok?

    I am doing a project in my psychology class and I have to figure out where motivation comes from. I have to figure out where motivation comes from in the work place. Does one get motivated by pay increases etc, or does motivmotivation come from other factors such as personal goals that one has set for ones self. What motivates you?

    Please let me know what you think and why.

    At the beginning of this year (2011) I lost 25 pounds no problem. I went to the gym,had an awesome diet and even adopted a healthy life style with my husband,but as this year has come to an end I have lost my motivation (as has my husband). How can I get back that hard core determination that I had before?
    The motivation I had a year ago was getting married lol

    I’m writing a research paper right now, and I’ve suddenly lost all motivation. It was going really well at the beginning of break, but now I’ve just given up. I’m getting bored with it. I know what I want to write about, I just can’t bring myself to do it. I have my last 3-4 PP’s started, I just can’t bring myself to fill them in.

    What do you do to motivate yourself to write?

    I started working out and eating healthy for a few weeks, but LOST my motivation afterwards. Now I want to start again. I just went to the supermarket and got healthy foods (kale, spinach, paprikas, fruits, smoothie drinks, etc.) and will go to the gym this week, but i know that my motivation from today will not last. Any tips on how to lose weight, but not eat all that delicious junk food? Thanks!

    They want everyone to have a democratic system, thing is if some countries do become democratic, they are corrupt, and the majority of the people suffer. The other half that is democratic has a decent system, but they are still slowly crumbling nonetheless. Then the USA finally rolls over it’s own citizen’s rights. What is their motivation? Money? Power? The pursuit of Science? And if they win these prizes, who does it go to? Sure as hell not the citizens, are they being controlled by outsiders from space? Or are there just a few ” Master Gangsters ‘ at the top, that is making all these decisions, with just their wealth in mind?

    If so, don’t you think a revolution should be in place? Put the ” United ” back in the States of America.
    Even Benjamin Franklin said it: ” The Tree of Democracy must be watered by the Blood of Revolution every now and then “. Or are we actually being manipulated by some sort of Military Dictatorship? The Founding Fathers had their suspicions about them as well.

    Think about it, back in those times, people had nothing, so they were able to think more clearly about the future, today we are too pre-occupied with useless things, a tablet watch? an iPad? Why would a ration person want these things if they already have a laptop or a smartphone? But the average American will spend his next paycheck on it, I swear.

    Some people do it solely because its healthy but I know that there is always inspiration. It can be a girl you want to look good for, it can be that you want to imitate someone you really “love”/idolize like a singer…

    It sounds superficial but I know that lots of people have inspiration like this. Me for one. Anyone else have different motivations?

    For about a year now I have been trying to lose weight. I was doing it properly with diet and excersise and managed to lose 7 pounds… a year ago.
    Since then I have lost all motivation. I can go healthy during the week and lose about 1-2 pounds but will give up by the weekend and stuff my face. Then I’m unable to get back on track on monday and eat crap for another 2 weeks before starting the cycle all over again.
    What can I do to stay motivated?? Please help, thanks 😀

    Recently I’ve been having some problems finding motivation to do my homework. I’m only a sophomore, and I’m afraid this’ll impact the rest of my schooling years. I find the subject of English/Writing difficult for me so I find it hard to find any motivation to write, since I can’t write essays very well. So is there any sure fire motive that’ll get me running again? I’ve already thought, oh this’ll help me active my goal in life. But that doesn’t seem to work very well. So any tips/tricks you guys have to offer would be great.

    If there’s something I really don’t want to give up on, how do I get the motivation back when I think “I can’t do this”, “it’s taking too long for me to learn this, I’ll never reach my goals”

    I try to think of the reasons why I really want to reach my goals. But sometimes that does not help. And should I push myself, or not?
