Why am I not motivated to do anything?

Frustration

There are many reasons why you may not be motivated to do anything.

Apart from psychological or physiological issues, which you may have, this post could not deal with those issues…in other cases…

You may have set your targets too high.  This one is a biggie.  If you set your goals too high you are setting yourself up for failure.

I will use an analogy here; if you wanted to be a brilliant guitar player and you say you want to achieve that in one year, it would not be possible.

Why?  Because to do that you would need to practice about 12-16 hours per day, 7 days per week.  Most people don't have that kind of time available.

This would be very demotivating and an insurmountable problem.

Perhaps you have tried to achieve smaller goals and just as you were about to get a result it all went down the tube.

This is normal.

Success is never a ride to the top.  It is a bumpy roller coaster ride and sometimes it hurts! A lot!

Roller Coaster

There are obstacles to overcome.  They may be of your own making or they may be environmental obstacles.

The main point is this happens to everyone so you are not alone.  But what do you do when you hit a brick wall?

The first thing to do is take a break from what you are doing and go for a walk, visit a friend or do something for you.  Your brain has maxed out and it needs to recharge.  You need a change of environment and a change of pace so that you can re-charge.

Don't worry about losing momentum.  You will start thinking outside the box if you take that break.  If you are doing any training it will be better to go back a few steps and re-establish what you learned.  You will also find that solutions will be more forthcoming to your problems.

I hope this helps you move on with your goals, and I wish you all success.
