    I need motivation to move my ***,

    to clear that pile of rubbish, to exercise more, to work on little projects I've thought of doing and many more. I would think reading and sharing positive things should help. So I've decided to share this thing that I've done, which is the first step towards more a positive...

    Motivation is important in life

    and I have none. I need it to finish my book, go to class, do my homework and just live in general. Any advice?

    Focus On What You Can Do....

    I am a motivational speaker at my job. That's not all I do, but it's part of the gig. One thing I always tell people is to focus on what you can do, not on what you cannot do. Focus on solutions, not on bariers. Imagine the possible, not the impossible. Believe you can, and you...

    Its Like My Mind Ceases Up

    So many things I want to change. So many things I want to do. Then when the time comes either my mind goes on strike or I physically feel too tired to do it. Rationally I will tell myself that now is the time and lets go but actually doing it is something else. It is a continuous...

    Once again I need hard motivation!

    Lately I have asked my friends to make me feel bad about what I'm eating or when I'm not exercising because I have gotten to a lazy stage. So that's my motivation, yes it may be mean but someone calling me a fat cow and telling me to move my *** is a lot more support than...

    I can never have enough motivation to get

    something done. Life is really hard and all we live for is competition. With everything in life it is a competition. Want a good job? Want to make more money? Want more freedom to live life? You are going to have to fight for everything you desire. There is no such thing as this...

    I need someone who can help keep me motivated.

    I used to be anorexic and now I'm trying to gain weight by gaining muscle. Problem is, I have no motivation to do this and it'd be great to have some people to help encourage me.

    If you want to awaken all of humanity,

    then awaken all of yourself, if you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation. -Lao Tzu

    or want to do anything. I'm tired of everything and just don't care. I feel so apathetic, but somehow, there is a part of me that says it'll be ok. I hope that part is right as I go back to school. I can't afford to fail anymore classes....
