Motivation is needed to keep moving forward with our dreams. It is something that most can feel they have to have before working on their goals. How often have you believed that you needed to be motivated to be able to get something done? ❤
I am sure there have been plenty of times. I myself have had goals written out and waited for the right moment to come. Awaiting for that motivation to emerge from somewhere. Sadly, the longer we wait, the more less likely we are to work on our goals. Instead, we get distracted with everything that is happening around us. Watching our favourite TV show, getting caught up with researching online and turning to others for inspiration 😀
It is good to have time to ourselves to relax and enjoy different parts of our life. However, we need to ensure that we do not get too distracted by other things. Turning to others for inspiration can be a wonderful thing, yet there are some downsides too. The great things can include, if they can do it so can you, looking at what they are doing sparks inspiration within you to start working on your goals, and they can add words of encouragement to your journey.
Even if you do not personally know the person who is inspiring you, it is amazing how much they can touch your heart. Love in the world is great like that. Now let’s look at some of the downsides, you may feel sad about what they have already achieved in their life, what they are doing is not something that you feel you can do right now, and they may have the support that you do not have ❤
The downsides can cause you to feel unmotivated which can lead you to putting off your dreams for a long period of time. This is why it is important to not invest too much of your time in watching what others are doing. Small doses are great. Reading their book or watching a video here and there but do not get to a point where they consume your life. Comparison can take away your joy. Do not compare yourself to anyone as they are on their own journey and you are on yours 🙂
Thank you so much for reading! Be kind to others and choose to live your life as you please. Motivation starts with you. Go after your dreams and stay focused on your goals when you are spending allocated time on them. Do your best to avoid distractions. Most of all, love who you are and all that you do. If you do not have anyone to cheer you on, let yourself be your number one supporter. The more passionate you get about your dreams, the more others will too. Just start and continue working on your goals. Have a great day!
