Balancing Relationships with your Chronic Illness Career Health

Finding Purpose.


What motivates you? Lately, I’ve been finding it very difficult to motivate myself to do anything. Each day has been one big going through the motions of life. I do not want to go through the motions and do the bare minimums, I want to exceed expectations in everything I do. Nonetheless, when I start to succeed, something holds me back. Maybe it’s fear. Maybe it’s lack of desire? Maybe it’s¬†a lack of direction or passion? I’m not sure.

All I know is that my motivation is lacking… I need it to come back. How do you get motivation when you do not know what motivates you? Yes, success motivates me, praise motivates me, pride, competition, a goal, yet overall, I still have no overarching idea what should be the end result. Maybe once I figure out what I want, it’ll be easier to work towards it?

Who knows?

Guess I have some thinking to do…

  1. I’ve been feeling exactly the same way lately! I found that taking a step back, taking pressure off myself and taking part in things I enjoy and that make me happy really helped me. Now I’m full of energy and ideas!
