Whether it’s procrastination, chaotic life, and failed marriage and relationships, we always have a reason why we’re demotivated to pursue the things we truly want and wish in life. You feel like there’s a burning desire inside of you to pursue your dreams and ambitions in life, but even that wasn’t enough to actually get you in action and keep moving.
For some reason, we found ourselves freezing when we actually start working on our dreams. We don’t know what it is, but we felt like something is holding us back to achieve our full potential. To put it simply, we’re unmotivated to do anything.
Even if we have all the resources and support surrounding us, why do we still feel demotivated to achieve our goals? Here are the three dreadful reasons why you’re demotivated and how it is holding you back from achieving your full potential.
1. You’re Afraid to Fail
Let us face it. We’re all afraid to fail. We’re afraid to get hurt the moment we won’t be able to achieve our dream, or goal. You’re afraid to disappoint the people who have high expectations of us. We’re afraid of letting them down. You’re afraid that someone else might steal the zenith of our glory. We’re afraid that our efforts and work were not enough, far from perfection.
Whatever your fear may be, it’s the number one reason that’s holding you back from doing anything. This fear eats you up, washing away any desires in you to keep moving. In order to overcome your fear, you need to accept the fact that you will always fail. You are doomed to fail one way or another. Why? It’s because we’re not perfect and we’re bound to make mistakes. Don’t let fear rule you.
Besides, how do you even know that you fail if you haven’t even tried? Actually, when you’re doing nothing to achieve your dream, it’s like you declaring that you’re already a failure. So, don’t give up without trying. So what if you ended up failing? At least you know deep inside that you tried. And along the way, you have gained lessons along the way that will help improve and become the better version of yourself.
2. You always think about the negativity in your life
Another reason why we’re unmotivated to do anything it’s because we feel like we’re a total failure. We always see the bad or negative side in us. Example for that is we weren’t able to write a chapter today, or we haven’t gone to exercise, and we found ourselves sulking in the corner. We felt really guilty about the failure we did.
What we don’t realize is that we may have failed to do our current task or goal, but we still have time to work on it today! So instead of sulking out in the corner and chastising yourself for another failed deed, gather the courage to move on and make-up today by taking action.
3. They don’t believe that they are talented.
Most people procrastinate because they don’t believe enough in their self. They don’t have enough confidence to believe that they can achieve and accomplish their dreams. They keep on believing that there are other people who are always better than them. And since that someone is better and more capable, more deserving to reach that dream than you, why try?
This kind of thinking actually boosts the inferiority complex that you’re experiencing. You really need to get rid of that and think more of your worth. You need to believe in yourself that you can do it, because if you can’t, who else will? Believe us when we say that you possessed the necessary skills, abilities to achieve your dream. The only lacking ingredient? Your confidence in yourself. Stand up for your dreams now more than ever!
We all know that overcoming procrastination is a difficult task. But with conscious efforts and discipline in yourself, you will be able to overcome it! Remember, nothing is impossible if you believe in yourself!
