No matter how motivated we consider ourselves, we always have moments that lack drive and ambition. For some, this occurs far often than others.
A lack of motivation can stem from feeling overwhelmed, stressed, overworked or just simply sick and tired. But how do we overcome these obstacles and increase our chances of staying motivated and encouraged?
Stop Saying Yes!
Think you’re a yes person? Whether you’re the person who will always pick up the phone at 4am, even if it means getting no sleep before work the next day – or lending money to friends in need, never to see it back, constantly saying yes can see you become seriously overextended and overbooked.
Start to work on your boundaries. Learning to say no when it is in your best interest can be the best thing you’ve ever done. Next time, instead of telling your work mate you would love to finish their proposal so they can go home early, put your foot down and put yourself first.
Stop Saying No (when you want to say yes)
Similarly, saying no or staying put for the sake of being scared to move forward can be seriously detrimental to your general wellbeing. Say yes to going on a blind date and making new friends. Say yes to starting over if you’re unhappy in your current state.
