Getting Past the Barrier of Low Motivation

One of the things I see people struggle with most is lack of motivation.  This ultimately leads to a vicious cycle of procrastination, carrying the weight of all things left undone, and guilt for putting those things off.  Whether we’re talking about exercise, staying organized/clean, keeping up with that to-do list, developing better habits, or daunting work projects, we all struggle at times to find the motivation needed to “just do it”. When we just don’t feel like it, we put it off til later.  After all, there’s always tomorrow.  The problem with this, however, is that tomorrow often turns into the next day, week, month or year.

Why we get Stuck – And Steps to Getting “Unstuck”

Are you feeling stuck?  If so, you know it’s a frustrating feeling.  Whether in the context of a relationship, a career, or the mundane routine of day-to-day life, it comes along with wanting change – or wanting more.  You might feel like you’re on the treadmill of life – moving along, but not really getting anywhere.  Other times, it feels more like facing a multi-pronged fork in the road – being faced with several options or possible decisions to make, but with no idea as to which you should choose.  The fear of picking the wrong one can lead to no action at all.  Regardless of what it is that has you stuck, feeling stuck is actually a good thing and can lead to positive change if you’re willing to do something about it.  After all, you only feel stuck because you’re at a place in your life where you know something has to be done.  Although it won’t be easy, with some reflection and readiness for change, you can get unstuck.
