What up to all my peeps out there. Like always, I hope everyone is doing well, staying up, and maintaining. It's been a hot minute since I've posted anything, but I'm back at it once again. In fact, what I'll be talking about in this post will somewhat coincide with the reasoning for my previous absence from posting in this blog. By the time I get finished with this post, it will all make sense. Now that I've stated that, it's time to get into what we're talking about in this post. So I started out talking about the word "motivation", and how for some people it comes naturally. Now for those of you who happen to read this that have no problem being motivated to do certain things, I definitely tip my hat off to you. However, the main people that this post will be addressing are the ones that occasionally have a hard time getting or staying motivated. Whether this applies to you or not, you're still more than welcomed to read on, and any feedback is always welcomed.
Now if you're a person that sometimes needs an added push to get motivated, I want to begin by saying that there is absolutely nothing wrong with you. One of the things that frustrates me about our society is how quick so many people are to make someone feel bad because they're not like them. If you're someone that finds yourself always being self-motivated in life that's great, however, it doesn't give you the right to look down upon someone that may not be that way. Everyone processes things differently, and while certain tasks may come easy for some people, those same tasks may be equivalent to climbing up a mountain for others. Sometimes, a person just needs that extra spark to become motivated to start climbing up that mountain.
So how does one find that spark to become or stay motivated? Well, finding a spark varies from person to person and whatever circumstance that warrants extra motivation. But, what I do know is that finding a spark doesn't take much at all to do. The urge to become motivated towards life often comes in the form of the simplest things. For example; lets say someone is a writer, who for whatever reason or another, has recently lost their motivation to write. The days and weeks begin to pass by, and the author's motivation continues to stay in the doldrums. Then suddenly out of the blue one day, that same author receives an e-mail from a fellow writer telling them that they've read some of their past works, and how they were impressed by it. Suddenly, the writer that has lost their motivation to write recently potentially feels motivated again, all because someone else saw their talent. That scenario right there can be the true example of a spark that initiates a person to become motivated.
Now although I used the writing analogy, there are various other examples where that one little spark can ignite someone to become motivated. A person that may be in the process of trying to lose weight may need a spark to stay motivated to keep going. Their personal spark can come in the form of someone complimenting them on how far along that they've already come. There are various other examples, but I'm going to go ahead and end this blog post. Always keep in mind that it's okay to lack motivation in life, however, never allow your lack of motivation to completely weigh you down. Remember that if you're willing to change for the better, there is always that little spark out there that can help you become motivated. It's always out there, so always keep yourself open to finding it.
Well that's it for this weeks edition of 'Brad H.'s Perspective'. As always, thank you to those of you that have tuned in. My hope is that this blog can help be somewhat of a spark for someone else. Like with all of my posts, everything that I write are my own thoughts and how I strive to live my own life. If there can be some meaning and understanding gained from this by others, then that is an added bonus for me. Alright I'm out for this time everyone, so I'll see you in the next one. Peace!
