I'm not going to lie. I've been unmotivated for some time now, but not like completely unmotivated, because I know that will cause me to sink into a deep depression- but unmotivated to where it's taking more time than it should for me to see my dreams progress. Honestly, life is just getting in the way. And by life, I mean worries and anxieties. I find myself coping with my current financial state, while battling with my hopes and dreams- because truth be told, my finances are not matching up with the future endeavors I plan to ensue.
See, I'm a planner. So it's hard for me to say I'm going to do something, without first planning my steps to get there. I can't blindly walk into anything. I mean, I can- but it causes anxiety for me.
So here I am, sitting here, typing on my computer; hoping that motivation finds me soon to continue pursuing my dreams.
Luckily, I stumbled upon a video of a pastor preaching and it- dare I say it- motivated me. From the video I learned that I need to stop sitting around, hoping that motivation will tap me on the shoulder, and instead start practicing motivation. To practice motivation, by just simply "being" motivated. It put into perspective for me that I am in control of my emotions in every way, and ultimately the outcome of my dreams.
And that's exactly what I plan on doing.
But not only practice motivation, but other things I believe are lacking in my life. Such as, joy, gratefulness, consistency and energy. And I challenge you to do the same. Yep, you who are reading this post. Start practicing being the things that you lack.
Comment below actions that you want to start practicing to better your life!
