If you are trying too hard to be positive or be motivated all the time, clearly you are doing it wrong. Your emotions & feelings have covered up the self-motivation, that inspiration you’re born with. And you deserve to get that motivation back in life.
Life is not always as sweet as we see it on Instagram. Lack of motivation often holds us back from doing things that really matter. We are often consumed in the quest of finding motivation within ourselves.
Despite the technological upgrades, more often than not we forget to upgrade our mind & our spirit. It feels like we are always on ground zero. Making no progress at all. Nor mentally nor physically nor socially. The worst part is, we start doubting our existence.
And you know what? It’s completely ok to through these types of emotions. Because within these emotions lies immense potential. Potential to a breakthrough in life. We need to unlock this potential. Here is how you can & must unlock the hidden gem.

Don’t Look For Motivation, Look For Perspective
Motivation is overrated. Firstly what you need is the ability to think better, not motivation.
When your thoughts are of constant fear, constant insecurity, you need something else to focus on. Someone to tell you that it’s all going to be ok, someone to tell you that it’s ok to fail.
A habit or an activity that will enable you to think better in times of crisis is a lifetime profitable habit. The objective is to focus on the now. Focus more on the good than the bad.
Reading can give you that perspective, exercising can give you that perspective, walking around your neighborhood along with your thoughts can give you that perspective. And so many activities like that. Talking to the humans you trust as well.
You need to find your perspective activity, which will enable you to think better, act better & let you be one with yourself. Soon you’ll realize, the situation you are in right now it’s not that actually bad. It will pass like any other phase, like any other season.
Start Falling In love With Your Goals, Don’t Lower Them
Start falling in love with your goals, not your emotions. Allow your goals & dreams that really matter to pull you towards them, create space for creation, and push out your fears & fill your heart with courage.
Sometimes fighting back at life means doing the right thing, not easy. If your goals can’t motivate you, nothing will. Lowering your goals will only bring more dissatisfaction the next time you don’t achieve it again.
Let the standards be high so you have a mountain to look forward to climbing which your setbacks can’t handle, your negative emotions can’t handle, your fears can’t handle, your excuses can’t handle. Ultimately, there is no option left but to climb that mountain.

Moving Forward Slow Is Progress
It doesn’t matter whether you fly, you run, you walk or you crawl, until & unless you are moving forward, you are on the right track. The simple act of consciously taking small steps that brings you closer to your goals every single day will push out regret will push out your fears slowly & steadily.
The key is to never look back, always forward. Forward with your eyes wide open & focus too narrow that what is happening in the world is of the least concern to you. Your personal growth should take precedence over anything else.
Take One Step Back To Move Two Steps Forward
Don’t be overwhelmed by the 21st century’s hustle culture. Don’t be fooled by, you have to do it today, today & today! You have to purchase this course now, now & now! If you don’t do this, you will never be successful! & more crap like this!
Well, you can’t change the past now, but in order to change the days ahead of you, months ahead of you, and years ahead of you, it’s ok to look back at what mistakes did you do & correct it effectively immediately. Be a student of life & resolve those mistakes that hold you back. Today is the future
Choose Faith Not Fear
In all reality, you are only left with two choices at the end of the day. Every person in this world has these two choices. And neither faith nor fear will discriminate with anyone it comes across. Because these are just emotions. The power to choose in which emotional space you want to belong is in your hands.
This is like the angel & devil sitting on your shoulder & persuading you to choose.
The concept of faith is best learned from Viktor E. Frankl’s life experience. The author of “Man’s Search For Meaning.” The classic tribute to hope from the Holocaust
If you don’t know him, he was a Holocaust Survivor. He survived the Nazi Camp with not even subcutaneous fat left on his body. A Nazi Camp, where most prisoners were victims of constant overthinking spiral, fear, brutality, vanished from all human rights.
He survived from a prison cell where somedays in order to save a dying person’s life, other prisoners would give their one time a day ration of a half piece of bread to the person who needed it the most that day.
Because nobody knew who would wake up the next day & who wouldn’t.
Just Take The First Step
Finding motivations is not as difficult as taking the first step. There is so much resistance within us. The resistance of fear, the resistance of insecurity, the resistance of excuses. But all the types of resistance will continue to grow if you don’t break this chain.
Stop creating your own version of the reality in your mind, stop presuming outcomes that have not taken place. Your current reality does not determine your future, the actions that you take today will definitely determine your future.
Just take that first step so that your future self & current self can feel proud about how courageous you are.

Choose faith, not fear.
