Overcoming Lack Of Motivation And Enthusiasm In Everyday Life

Doing small, or not so important things, which you usually avoid doing, can help you increase your inner strength. When your inner strength grows, you will be able to push yourself to do greater things, even if you are not motivated enough.

When this happens, you will develop the ability to awaken the energy you need, whenever you need it, even if there is not enough zest and ambition.

Here are a few examples:

  1. Wash the dishes, now, instead of later.
  2. Throw the garbage, now, instead of later.
  3. Turn off the TV and go out to take a short walk.
  4. Clean and arrange the contents of one of your drawers.
  5. Decide on a book to read and start reading, even if you want to do other things.

This will increase your inner strength and the ability to stop being passive.

Here is a useful exercise:

Devote a few minutes a day visualizing yourself doing something you want to do, but lack the enthusiasm and energy to do. In your imagination, see yourself acting enthusiastically and energetically. Repeat this mental scenario day after day.

If you visualize with full attention and immerse yourself in it, your subconscious mind will gradually accept the mental image as real, and bring up enthusiasm and drive.
