Why is motivation so hard to find? Like, why can’t we all just be programmed with huge amounts of motivation already installed in our brains? I have the hardest times doing things that involve motivation. Don’t get me wrong. If I want something or want to do something, it will take something really strong to stop me. But I am talking about the little things; like taking my car to get an oil change. I drive my car every single day. I see the yellow reminder light reminding me to get an oil change and get my tire pressure checked. I also know that it is fall and I should be preparing my car for the winter. But do I do it? Nope.
This morning I woke up, pressed snooze, fell back asleep and then did not wake up until 2 hours after. I told myself that with my school schedule being the way it is this semester (late classes on certain days), I would go to the gym in the mornings and still have plenty of time before I had to go to class. But do I do it? Nope.
What makes people motivated? Should I staple a picture of Kim Kardashian or Beyonce on the wall in front of me while I run on the treadmill? No, I couldn’t do that because my problem is that I don’t even get that far. Maybe I should get a personal trainer to kick my ass and scare me so that I am too terrified to not get up and go work out. That might actually work if I was a millionaire but sadly, I am not.
I need to figure out a way to get me going. My mom always told me to take vitamins for energy. Maybe I’ll do that.
