I feel so dull and unmotivated these past few days. Like I don't want to go to the office(which I did), I don't want to see my friends, I just want to stay at home and think. I want to enjoy life like other people (freelancers in particular). They have their time They can do what they want. They can go anywhere. And I like that. I also want to have my own business and fully enjoy working. Like it's not work at all. BUT, the funny thing is I dont know where to start. I don't know. What if I start business and feel unmotivated again? What do you think? What should I do? Actually,I already prayed about it but God seemed so silent. Now it's like I'm in the desert with no directions to take. Please share here how you keep yourself motivated.

Hi! Finding the motivation to achieve our goals is not easy. Prayer is very important but so is our actions. The two work together, as God will bless those that put forth effort. Since you have a job, don't quit. Work hard to be the best at what you do. When other see our determination and zeal, sometimes they tell us about other possibilities. Try to save some money so that you have something to fall on if something else you try doesn't work out well. In your spare time, try one thing and then another until you find something that excites you. Always keep your job. You are more confident and successful on a full stomach that when you are starving. So you understand, keep your job until you find a better one! Also, read positive articles that encourage you to keep going. Avoid negative vibrations. You need to stay positive and determined. I have written many articles on motivation. See my profile for my website. Best of success!

Motivation comes from many sources. Sometimes it is an attitude you develop from seeing someone impress you, choosing to believe in yourself, or being influenced by nature (Ever had your mood enhanced by a beautiful day?). I stay motivated by continuing to believe I can make things happen for myself in life. I make efforts to learn and set goals. Keep learning and believing in yourself and allow yourself to work toward realizing your full potential.

Your welcome. Just look deep inside yourself and find out who you are, what you want, and learn the right way to make it happen.
