Motivation is the driving force by which humans achieve their goals
The weekend has came to a close and the normal week life starts again for most families. Some families weekends are just starting, either way do you have enough motivation to do the things you want to do on your days off or are you lacking in that department? I can speak for myself and say I lack motivation. I am even surprised I have been able to keep this blog going as long as I have (not even a week).
I have recently discovered the pinterest . Crazy site for someone who lacks motivation and the desire to accomplish many many "DIY Projects". This site has poured a fuel to a fire that has already been burning bright for awhile, I just can't seem to even make it die down a little. I have spent many nights awake with ideas and excitement. I finally go to sleep and BAM!!! Motivation has disappeared. I have wondered if it's because I am a stay at home mom and all that motivation gets poured into taking care of and entertaining my 9 month old son and the house or if I am just truly unfocused. I decided to do some reading and research into this subject because I am pretty sure I am not the only one. Actually I am positive. I see it in my own family and children. So I need to fix this problem.
We all know that in order to have motivation we need to have goals and to stick with them. One of the biggest failures to reaching a goal is procrastination. Oh yes I have this issue! The way to solve that is to not delay. We all knew that! But I think the bigger picture is to look into the real reason why we procrastinate. Here are a few reasons as to why we procrastinate, fear of failure, personality trait, future rewards. So we need to pay attention to what the real reason is. I believe for myself is fear of failure. Hopefully you can identify yours. Work on these issues and finally just get off your butt and do it!! I so need to take my own advice.
I have a list of projects I want to accomplish
1. Keep up with this blog
2. Making memory boxes for my girls
3. Completing the Razorback shirt for my son
4. I have a few projects I am working on that involves salt dough
5. Creating the snowman stocking stuffers for Christmas
6. Lots of things on pinterest
How soon "not now" becomes "never"My final note, if you are lacking the motivation to accomplish your goals you have set out to do, "JUST DO IT"
