    Initially Can'T Get Started...

    I really struggle to get motivated to do something, it can take me forever to talk myself into beginning it but once I begin I'm terrible, then I go totally over the top and get obsessed with perfection in the task.It seems I can only be one extreme or the other. Anyone else...

    I Can'T Seem To Stop

    I am a freshman in college and the first in my family to even get to college, that is a lot of pressure. I just have not put in any effort to school, it feels pointless. I just want to lie down somewhere and disappear no papers, no need to get the best grades, no disappointing my...

    It's Confusing

    It's strange.  I have goals and things I'd like to do, but I'm always drawn away from them.  I make straight A's in school, but outside of that, I don't really do much.   When I get home, I always tell myself I should play my bass or write or do something...

    Time To Wake Up..

    I'm not sure what's happened to me. Somewhere along the line, I lost my footing..and have been stumbling, aimlessly, my way through life the last few years. I stopped dreaming. I settled. If I think about it, I think this is the core of my present day unhappiness. Now, I am...

    v=9z4Kft47kBM ^^^^^^^^^^ this is what my coaches play for everyone in our gym during tumbling and cheer, It helps 110% because it's just so motivating, our practices without it is just horrible, we drop stunts, bail on tumbling, because we have no motivation,

    So Much to Do....

    I do wish I was more motivated - it seems that instead of getting more motivated as I get older, I get less motivated.  Not to be too hard on myself, I have been going through a rather rough time for the last couple of years and this year has probably been the worst so far...

    I need to clean my apartment, donate/sell a bunch of things taking up space in my home, get my finances in order, etc.  I just don't have the energy to get started most of the time.

    Like the Logo Says.

    I really just don't have the motivation to do much at all. Basic "I need to do these things to survive comfortably" tasks are about all I feel like managing. I don't like going to work, I can't stand going to classes, even getting out of bed is a hassle some days. It's...

    I have assignments due tomorrow

    and I didnt start on any of them. I am probably one of the few unmotivated people at my school. I will not budge unless I care. And the only way I will care if is I'm motivated. And the only way I can become motivated is if I genuinely love what I am doing, or if I'm angry...
