    Motivation Is Important

    I did lose my motivation but not currently. I'm referring to my past. I honestly felt like I couldn't succeed. Then I remember regaining my motivation when I spoke to my cousin and a friend. The stuff that they said to me made so much sense. Their statuses proved what they said...

    I Wonder Where It Went

    When I was in high school, I was very disciplined and motivated.  I was in marching band, chorus, and pretty much every musical activity you can imagine.  I also made really good grades and studied hard.  I wasn't in the top 10% or anything, but since I went to a...

    Loss of a Power

    It seems that I cannot do anything properly when I am not motivated. I used to easily motivate myself whenever I needed to get something done. Recently, I have been completely unable to do so and feel less of a productive member of society for doing so. I am currently looking for...

    I've lost all motivation in life.

    I feel like I'm in a dirt hole and as I'm trying to crawl out, I'm just pushing more dirt on top of me. Life is burying me. Right now I'm too weak to try to unbury myself.

    I have lost my motivation.

    I can't exercise and have diet plan. It's boring and not fun at all. I need to lose weight! I have health issues.

    Tired

    I got 4.0 GPA for first semester in college recently. This is the third week of the second semester. I suddenly lost the passion of studying that I used to have. Before, I could sit for hours just trying to understand a concept in Chemistry, or Biology or a Maths question. Now I...

    before I was put on lexapro I had a lot of

    ambition and motivation. It made me depressed and I lost my motivation. I feel like I am never going to get anything done. Once I start something it's hard to finish it.

    Lost, Or Never Found?

    I have just never been fully motivated toward anything. I graduated college with a 3.97 GPA. I have work experience in the subject matter I studied, but I don't have the motivation to push forward and deal with all the bullshit that comes with stepping up. Is it horrible to say...
