    I am a complete procrastinator.

    I should probably be more motivated and change me ways

    Yeah I literally did nothing

    but sit on my phone and sleep today. Didn't feel like doing anything. I hate being lazy, but today was just one of those days 😝

    I lack motivation all the time.

    I wanna do so many great things in life, but I could never just get my a$$ up and do it. I could use my maximum potential, I just can't find the will to do it.

    Unhappy work day....I used to love my job

    and willing to work crazy hard. Like to feel that I am contributing. I know I am not the smartest and have many short-comings but I work really hard. Recently, I have had bad relationship with my boss and lost my passion on work. I start to re-think the purpose of work and it...

    I already wish this weekend would end.

    It's not even noon yet, and I can't wait until the middle of next week. I'm so beyond stressed with all the **** I have to do and all of the tests, readings, and papers I have coming up. I literally want to just lay in bed, curl up in a ball, cry, and do absolutely nothing all...

    Mostly, Not Sometimes

    The main reason I usually lack motivation boils down to one thing. I'm thankful beyond words for friends - offline or here on EP. But I've been trying my entire life, from as far back as I can remember, which was before I turned two, only a short number of months after my...

    I need to and know how to lose weight.

    I've done it before. My main problem is motivation. I dress nice. I have pretty hair, skin, nails, and teeth. I am clean. I have a pretty face. I get hit on fairly regularly. The issue isn't self esteem - though I know being more fit would be a boost! I do want to be fit but...

    I lack motivation in most points of my life.

    I wasn't like this before. I used to be really active, care about my studies, work on my hobbies, was more outgoing, etc. Now... I'm just... dead...I don't do... anything. I have no passion, no motivation to take part in anything. Whatever I do it's because I have to. I lost...

    School Isn't My Top Concern Anymore

    In the last few weeks I've lacked motivation in school. I just don't have the drive to do it anymore. At least, I don't have the drive to do any of the work. Sure, I'll listen in class, and most of the time I'll take notes. Sure, I'll hang out with my friends, and do the projects...
