You’re trying hard, so very hard, to get ahead and reach your goals and yet there seems to be no end to the hurdles and roadblocks along the way… So it’s important that you realize that no one can stop you – unless you give up. When your motivation starts to flag, just stop and think about the dream lifestyle you’re fighting for and why it’s so important to you.
Meditation may not be your thing, you may call it prayer or you may just like to sit quietly in the garden. And I am not saying that beer creates read articles, although every polyglot I know speaks a foreign language better after a drink. (Perhaps it promotes relaxation).
1) Expose yourself to things that will inspire you. – Now days there are so many venues, which we don’t access, that will inspire us. There is inspiration in music, arts, culture and books.

There would be no flu shots to prevent the flu, there would not be a vaccination for the mumps (which by itself is a deadly disease) nor would there be simple over the counter medicine. Need a cough drop? Nope, nobody was really inspired to invent it.
We might do something because we like it, because we must do it, or a similar reason. However, with important things in life, most things are things we MUST do. And we must do them even if it creates discomfort in ourselves. Being motivated in this case might be harmful. It erases our musts. It creates comfort and doesn’t oblige us to do what we must do. However, if you’re feeling pretty bad, motivation can be a pretty good weapon. It can lead you and help you maintain the mindset to complete a task. If you’re feeling down, being motivated can be a lifesaver. So, when should motivation be used?
Once I find a category, that interests me, I’ll begin to search for questions in that category. I’ll enter very generic questions like “Who” or “What” or “How” and the category. Sometimes, I’ll enter use just the category selection. In any case, I’ll end up with a list of search terms.
If inspiration did not go hand in hand with success, then we would have a lot less paintings. Imagine if the Sistine Chapel were not painted, or the Mona Lisa.
There’s no limit to how happy you can be! Just go out there and be your very best you! Your happiness will in turn motivate those around you so it’s really win-win!
