    I Do Lack Motivation

    I use to be motivated to do things but not it's not so. The only that seems to get me doing things is too much boredom.

    Why Not Start By Listening?

    Call it what you will, but there is this part of you – an innate wisdom, if you will – that has tried and tried and tried to get you to stop and fix a part of you that broke a long time ago but you've told yourself that you either don't have enough money, don't have enough...

    Tortoise Beats Hare

    I used to be the biggest clean freak this side of the Mississippi - then, I had my daughter (she's 10), then I met my "hubby", then I recently had my son (he's 14 months), and I cannot for the life of me give a crap to get up off my butt and clean my home!  What the hell is...

    I have worked with many women on Motivation.

    Each was a little different so you would be different as well. Many have come because they have tried everything. It may now need someone to look over you and actually give you a spanking because you may need something more physical. Things more physical many times effect as...

    No Energy, No Will, No Determination, No Motivation...

    I used to be this super motivated human being. I used to be healthy, I used to keep my home spotless, I used to make lists and be organized. Now if you asked me where my keys are I couldn't tell you. I am seriously overwhelmed with life and all of its "tests." I am 35 years...

    Life Is Just Blah With A Side Of Sigh

    My motivation during the day is to open my eyes and even that takes a lot out of me. I dont see the point in getting out of bed if I have nothing to do and all I want to do is eat. You'd think being hungry and having to pee would make you jump out of bed, it doesnt. Ive gotten...

    The Sound Of Failure

    I Don't Like The Taste.

    You know when you're kinda hungry, but the meal you've been cooked sounded good beforehand, but turns out it's one you find quite unpleasant. You pick at it, occasionally summoning up the courage to take another bite. Each one tastes more unpleasant than the last. By the time you...

    I'm Only Motivated to Do Things That Interest Me

    I lack the motivation to do what other people think I ought to be doing. Getting out of bed, studying, forming relationships. That kind of thing.

    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)

    I become obsessed with a new idea

    or skill until I feel I have sufficient mastery over it such that I can "disassemble" it at will and be able to teach it without qualms. I then lose interest in it and find no reason to continue.
