Okay... so seriously...

Often people feel more motivated when they set clear goals, and then develop clear plans to reach those goals.

I agree with this. If I write it out as a goal and develop a plan to make it'll happen. I had a 2 year plan and completed it in under 2 years. At the same time I made 5 and 10 year plans. Daily to do lists are a huge thing for me.....without them I'd suck at life. lol.

It seems like when I have something to look forward to I tend to be more excited! Perhaps a "reward" of some kind. Watch a favorite movie, play a videogame, something
She acts as if talking to the people here isn't enough of a reward.

I think of my own company as such a fine reward that sometimes after a long day I'm quite thrilled just to settle back and have a long chat with myself.

That's how I feel.
No it isn't.
Yes it is.
No it isn't.

Steph, I need to go and settle a few things... I'll be back later.

It seems like even since I was a child, I have had trouble with being motivated to anything other than fun stuff or stuff I'm obligated to do..... With dad it was different, I KNEW I was supposed to help him. But....I don't know......maybe it's my medicine because when I sometimes did feel motivated it was from feelings of mass guilt or fear....

Is it.....depression maybe.....???
To be motivated, answer these 3 questions:

1) What's my life for?

2) What do what I want to happen in my life?

3) How can I achieve it?

Plus you must also remember the benefits of getting your goals successfully.

I suggest to believe in yourself and pray to the Lord for guidance and for more wisdom.

Yo, it kinda depends on what you want more motivation to do, but I would strongly suggest getting Brendon Burchard's "Motivation Manifesto" and working through the book. I am currently reading it and it is truly life changing! I'm starting to feel like I can truly achieve the big dreams God has given me!
