The Art Of Self Motivation: How to Be More Self-Motivated
‘Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.’ — Jim Rohn
Every morning we get up, gulp two cups of coffee and we go to work. For some of us, our jobs are the place where we feel alive, the place where we can improve on ourselves. For others, it’s the quite opposite, the job they go to every single day is horror. It might be the coworkers or your boss. It doesn’t matter who or what is it. Hey, it might not even be your job
You might be the boss of your company and you just feel so burnt out that the only thing you feel doing is procrastinate all day. You just don’t have the drive to do things, you lack motivation.
What really is motivation?
By definition, motivation is a reason or reasons for acting or behaving in a particular way.
There are two types of reasons. Scientist calls them Intrinsic and Extrinsic. It’s pretty simple:
Intrinsic is the type of motivation that comes from love, and our own desire to do it
Extrinsic is the motivation that comes when external factors come along like money or because your boss told you so.
But what happens when nothing motivates you, or there is no one that can?
You feel like nothing really depends on you, and there’s nothing that can be done.
Luckily there is a remedy for that and if done every day you might not find yourself in that situation again.

How to Be More Self-Motivated
#1: Always Learn
Read books, talk with interesting people, acquire new hobbies. Leaving your brain in a state of not learning and self-improving will only make you less and less motivated. Knowledge, for myself, I’ve found to be the biggest motivator. Try it, you just can’t hate learning new things.
#2: Surround Yourself With Positive People
This is key to success. People that talk about ideas, that have the drive and motivation in themselves will only do you good. There is just some kind of energy that you can feed on when around people like these are around you. You just cannot feel demotivated.
#3: Be Positive
Hey, every one of us gets in a state like that. All you have to do and the most important of them all is keeping your head clear from negative thoughts.
Still feeling demotivated? Then what are you waiting for?
