BEING IN CONFLICT WITH THE REAL YOU
A lot of people want to be the second ‘him’ or ‘her’ thereby putting unnecessary pressure on themselves to leave up to the standard they ignorantly set for themselves. Yes, conflict can erupt within you when you try to copy or imitate another in their way of living. Why imitating another person when you have been made in a unique way. Do you know that simple realization of yourself can be enough motivating factor to everything that you do? Motivation cannot live in the same house with conflict. It is as impossible as having light and darkness coexist as it is to have motivation and conflict with ones real self to coexist. One must give way for the other to prevail, start being you real you today and say goodbye to loss of motivation.
SETTING TOO HIGH OR TOO LITTLE A STANDARD FOR YOUR SELF
Standard is like flower; water it too much, it will die, water it too little and still watch it die. A balance must be sought between both ends of spectrum as far as standard setting is concerned. Too much or too little standard will surely make one to loss motivation. What will you be excited over when you didn’t put in much effort to hit your standard in a given endeavour? Or what will motivate you if you know from the word go that you cannot achieve the target you set for yourself? Try setting attainable standards and see your motivation and vibration level soar to the sky.
COMPARING YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE AROUND YOU
Comparing your self with people around you will do you more harm than good as far as motivation is concerned. Talents bestowed on me are not the same as that that is bestowed on you. Hence, you will find it difficult or impossible to get the exact result that I get from things that I do. And when you try to do things that you have no business in, failure will surely strike and when this happens, losses of motivation have no choice than to set in. a lot people condemn themselves because they cannot attain the same of success as their friends. No, you don’t have to condemn yourself! And besides, what your friends call success might not be what you call success as success is a relative term.
NOT BEING GRATEFUL
Being gratitude has a way of increasing our energy level and makes us perform above default standard. Show me an ingrate and I will show you someone who has lost all form of motivation. Nature has a way of rewarding those that appreciates her gifts. Avoid being negative if you really want to live a life that is full of motivation.
LACKING SENSE OF HUMOUR
Without humour, life sucks. We need to sometimes laugh over certain things in life if we want to be motivated almost all the time of our life. Lack of humour will make one not to see any motivating factor in any given situation. There is an element of humour in what ever situation we find ourselves. Laugh at your mistakes sometimes and turn them into a source of motivation to even power more.
