Finding Motivation through Personal Reflection and Growth


  Finding Motivation through Personal Reflection and Growth

Discovering the causes of your procrastination and resolving them is just a small part of the process. If you want to find real motivation, you’ll have to dig even deeper.

It's time for some self-reflection and growth! When we don't like ourselves, it becomes much easier for us to grow complacent in our own habits and routines because we're used to them. Remember: life never stops changing around us, so why should we? Especially if there's something that you should be doing but haven't been motivated enough to do it? Once you take a look at yourself (and your life), redefining what success means for you may become much more rewarding than ever before.

When you start living for yourself, you begin to understand what you want and need out of your life. You have every right to be happy, and it's up to you how hard you'll work at it! So why put things off? And if there are circumstances in your life that are causing you some stress or holding you back, then it's completely up to you how quickly or slowly you decide to get rid of them. It's your life after all; the only one that matters is yours.

Once we start learning how to live for ourselves instead of others, we become happier people! We start feeling more at peace with our own choices and mistakes because we're so much more accepting of ourselves. We're more confident and welcoming of life changes because we realize that everything is part of the whole.

We begin to recognize the value in every experience and live life one moment at a time instead of always worrying about the future. There are no external deadlines to meet, so we don't have to "pressure" ourselves into doing something in order to make a deadline. We feel fulfillment and meaning when we focus on ourselves instead of things we can't control.

Through self-reflection, you take the time to think about why you do what you do; when everyone else is focused on other people, it can be hard to take care of yourself first. Instead of putting yourself down, focus on what you can control within your life. Things will be okay no matter what happens to you!

Think about this: if you were improving yourself and learning how to live for yourself, wouldn't you feel more motivated? You'll be happier in the long run because it's harder to understand and accept the negative aspects of your life when it's all about other people. It'll be so much easier for you to honestly assess where your strengths and weaknesses lie. Now, if you're happy and enjoying yourself more, wouldn't you have more motivation?

It's time to start learning how to live for yourself instead of others!

Don't put off your happiness for tomorrow. Don't put it off until you can afford that new car or house or whatever. Don't put it off until you stop procrastinating and finally finish whatever task that's been holding you back. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Live your life the way you want, not the way others tell you to. Have faith in yourself and live for yourself. If you can't do it now, then when? The time is now.

Good luck out there, and remember: life is a journey, so enjoy yourself along the way!

I just came across this article today, and I feel like it completely resonated with me. I'm a sophomore in high-school, and so far my life has been great. I do know of one thing that's holding me back from realizing my full potential; procrastination. Procrastination caused me to put passing grades above happiness, and at the end of the day, how can you be happy if you're not at school? In order for me to get motivated, I made a list of all my strengths and weaknesses. The things that are holding me back are things that I can't control. I can only control the things that I do for myself; I have no one to blame but myself. My weaknesses are my procrastination, laziness, and being afraid of failing. My strengths are my attention span and creativity. I figured out that if I take these things into consideration when I'm looking for motivation, it'll make me happy. And honestly, what's the point in trying to improve my grades if they aren't going to benefit me anymore? There's more than enough time in the future to get a better score on an exam or get a better job offer. Right now is the key. Now is the time to start living well.

Hi, nice blog and straight to the point. Can you tell me why I always procrastinate? Sometimes, I just sit there thinking about doing a task/job for hours and don't do it.


You must have the strength to carry yourself through difficult times, and the courage to be different. You must have the confidence to do things you don't like doing. You must believe in yourself and think positive thoughts. Go on! Start living for you now! And do not worry about what other people think or say, because only you know what is best for you, not anyone else.
You're not here forever, so breathe it in and enjoy every moment of it. Your life is too short to be unhappy and focus on everything that lives outside of you: money, relationships, grades or your future goals.
