How to motivate yourself out of a rock bottom
Tell me, if you can relate to this, you set out to accomplish a goal and then you go to do it and you have zero motivation or drive or desire.
You may be tired or unable to string sentences together, and you just sit there and make yourself feel guilty because you're not accomplishing what you set out to accomplish.
Can you relate? I can.
I had one of those weeks this week and what I did instead was I listened to myself and I acknowledged that I was in a period of productivity, ebbs and flows.
Sometimes it's a little bit harder to get going and to really connect into that motivation and that desire and your why.
Instead of pushing yourself through it, take a step back and worry about your mindset.
Try to make yourself feel happier and vibe a bit higher by focusing on appreciation and gratitude, because you cannot be grumpy and grateful at the same time.
Focusing on these things that you have to be grateful for will allow you to come into a higher state of being where inspiration and motivation are living. So it's not so much of a climb.
If you think of lack of motivation or grumpiness at a -7, how do you expect to make the jump up to inspiration +10 instantly? That's a huge gap.
How to motivate yourself when you're depressed
You can bridge the gap by focusing on your feelings, your mood, your mindset.
It might take all week for you to change your mindset and to get to a place where you're vibing higher and able to actually capture true motivation. But I promise you, it'll be way more fun to work from this place of motivation than to continue to guilt yourself and shame yourself in those moments that you're tired and lacking motivation.
This is great advice for how to motivate yourself out of a rock bottom.
