    Motivation

    or lack there of in my case.

    Where do you find your motivation to do anything in life?

    Sometimes I just can't bring myself to do anything whether I need to do it or not. It's quite annoying, guess I'm just extremely lazy or lack alot of self control lol. School in six hours and I don't wana start my home work just yet XD

    The realization that people have to do shit they dont want to at times so they can better do the stuff they do want to should probably settle in right after the point you realize having zilch for dough isn't enjoyable either way. Take it from someone who has no motivation or enthusiasm of his own for much of anything, find something you tolerate long enough to better do the stuff you enjoy, if that changes with time and you learn to enjoy it or find something you enjoy that you want to work towards then more power to you.

    This is coming soon for me...very soon lol

    My biggest problem is I'm going to have to go from taking time off school to both school + work to pay for it and a place to stay most likely. My life is going to go from super lazy to constant movement, orz. Going to be like the middle years of high school again.

    I still have no motivation to do it really, haven't found anything I really want to do so until I find it I don't see myself being too motivated for school or anything.

    I used to have no motivation for anything, ended up biting me pretty bad but that just made me care even less. Dunno why but at one point somewhere i just decided to set a few goals for myself. I was tired of how people were, and acted, and I knew on the inside that I was better than them... but just feeling it isn't enough, I decided to prove that i was. So i did just that and said that i'm going to do this, and this, and go back to school and shit like that. Worked out very well for me and i'm pretty happy now, and doing pretty well. I look back at some people now and laugh at them, laugh at how much i've accomplished on my own while they, even with help, are ages behind me... especially in so short of time.

    Caring about yourself and throwing some confidence into the mix can work wonders. My brother taught me a few things when I was working with him on wallstreet that I kinda kept with me. He told me to think of everyone else as peon's pretty much, and even though i'm not so harsh, the basic principle of it was what I took in. That you need to care about yourself first, that you are more important, and once you have that straight everything else falls in line. If you dont care for yourself or want to improve yourself then how can you care for others? It feels damn good to have people look up to you when people have always looked down on you, and thats pretty much my motivation now.

    I had no motivation in college. Literally I would have a paper due Monday, would have half of it written Sunday afternoon, and yet would be playing FF11. The fact that no matter how many times I did that I never got lower than a B in a class probably didn't help though.

    As for the real world, a $20,000 school loan that I have to start paying back in a month is pretty good motivation to keep me from not getting myself fired from my job.

    Theres a difference between lack of motovation and procrastination.

    I am a huge procrastinator when it comes to stuff I need to do at work, or homework for school, I usually always wait till the last minute.

    Procrastination isnt always bad, for a lot of people who do so it actually works for them, they just do a better job at the last minute.

    Lack of motovation would not be doing anything; In your case, not ever doing the paper.

    You have to act yourself into right thinking.

    Sitting on your ass makes you tired.. you gotta get off of it and make yourself do stuff.

    It's part of growing up.. doing shit you don't wanna do is something every grown person has to deal with and the more you do it the more you like it.

    You don't need motivation, you just need to stop being a baby.

    This is a pretty emo topic IMHO.

    My grandpa (and grandma!) wanting me to do well is my motivation in college. If I ever feel like I'm slacking, I always think of him and how he tells me he is proud of me whenever I talk to him. That makes me want to keep doing well so he keeps telling me that, cause it's a really good feeling.

    When I have a magazine article deadline I find motivation in wanting to be better than other kids my age. Cause having your shit published at 18 is pretty cool. :D

    That's a fact. You have to get your blood flowing. It's like getting over a sickness.
