5 Reasons Why You’ve Lost Your Motivation

February 4, 2018 0 Comments

We all lose our focus from time to time, even on important things. Motivation is the same way. Because of your busy life or other factors, your burning desire to reach a certain goal or achieve a desired result can slip away.

Below are 5 possible reasons for losing your motivation on the way to your success:

1. You experienced a drastic lifestyle change.

Stress, health problems, the birth of a new baby – these are all major lifestyle events. No matter how dedicated and motivated you are, life sometimes gets in the way of you achieving your dreams and desires. To be successful at any major achievement, you’re going to have to negotiate speed bumps along the way. This includes any major lifestyle changes you may experience.

2. You aren’t seeing results fast enough.

Some people get so fired up and motivated that they expect to see results immediately. However, some endeavors require time before significant improvement is realized. One way to keep from losing motivation if you don’t believe you’re seeing results quickly is to break down your major goal into smaller chunks. When you see small victories occurring, it gives you the motivation to keep moving towards your major goal.

3. You’ve lost focus.

Focus is required for any major achievement. Focus is also a huge part of motivation. When you’re laser focused on a desired result, nothing stands in your way. Unfortunately, many things can make you lose focus. Try to identify focus-roadblocks before they appear and you can always keep on track, and in the intended direction.

4. Your original motivation came from an outside source, not from yourself.

Self-motivation is always found in any great achievement. If your motivation is provided by someone other than yourself, it’s easy to find yourself putting your goal achievement on the back burner. Find some way to provide your own motivation for whatever it is you’re trying to do. This usually means discovering the “Big Why” that’s at the heart of your efforts.

5. Your priorities have changed.

Sometimes a lack of motivation occurs when you have a change in priorities. This can sneak up on you, and isn’t always a conscious action. You may plan to pay off all of your credit cards by a certain date. You develop a schedule, take action, and are well on your way to making that happen. Then you lose your job or your vehicle breaks down. It is obviously okay to take care of these important priorities when they arise. Just don’t put off getting back on track when you have the ability to do so.

Over to You
