Hey guys...i sometimes lose my momentum when i am pursuing a project and i hit a hurdle and i start feeling down after a couple of attempts at solving the problem. How do you lift your spirit up to get the motivation to start moving again?

    Join a brotherhood that will be there to lift you up so you don't splatter the place.

    If you fall, brothers will be there to give you a lift. Not the floor. But a bunch of good brothers.

      Thanks. I had really not thought about it. I will consider do some research into joining a mastermind or society, or just a support group

    Hi felisitie: Great question. : )

    Something that keeps me inspired/motivated and working is my "Reason Why" -- (which is basically inspiring and empowering People.) However, it could be anything -- even creating a consistent income -- that you find keeps you working. Another important point is that sometimes I don't 100% feel great at the beginning of creating more content -- however several hours afterwards, I feel satisfied and fulfilled by it.

    HTH.

    I don't lift my spirits. I get back to work, and eventually figuring it out lifts my spirits...but only for a few seconds....because I'm busy.

    What motivates me? Well, having a mortgage helps. My wife's irritating habit of paying the bills on time helps motivate me. Looking at my checking account activity first thing in the morning is a real motivator.

    I think your thinking is backwards. You shouldn't feel down when you hit hurtles. Anything worthwhile is almost nothing but hurtles.

    Overcoming hurtles is the job, if you are in business at all. If you need motivation every time you feel a little down, maybe business isn't for you.

    You become demotivated after a couple of attempts? Then the project didn't mean that much to you.

    Hi there

    I always try to remember the only way to fail is to give up, I also find reminding myself of the ultimate goal keeps me motivated.

  • Exercising sometimes helps. It gets the endorphins flowing and gives me something else to focus on.

    I think we all feel bad sometimes, as for me i have normalized being uncomfortable with situation, and from that perspective, am able to deal with issues head on.

    give up ...if there are no consequences for not finishing a project just give up..and motivate yourself to start another project you wont finish ..and move on from one project to another ..

    eventually some project might grab your jollies long enough to finish the project and you will learn to start projects based off learning what projects you will finish or complete ..

    then one finshed project will lead to the next project to start and finish which will lead to the next one .. or many possible projects ..

    how does finishing a project move the needle as to moving you closer to who you want to be in the future .... do you even have that vision of a future you ..

    I take a look in the mirrah, an' gaze upon musself.

    Srsly.

    Naht to be a narcissist, y'undahstand -- my intention is way less navel-gazy.

    See bcs we all been dowin' this alla our lives.

    Checkin' hair, fixin' mascara, catchin' teeth before they drahp in the sink.

    An' that ole mirrah is proof we got ourselves to now.

    So I would wanna kiss always on the flux in this image we seen down our days.

    C'est Moi ... in the mirrah ... from when I was weeny small ... to here now how I be.

    Here is a continuum of trust -- regulah to observe, seekin' to be evah more substantial 6 months from now.

    No ideah what ima do with muh hair -- but less'n Novembah Balestra can't face husself, she will look upon it.

    (Actschwlly Novembah is my birthday so likely I will wanna see what I look like, speshly if'n it involves sum kinda stoopid costoom.)

    A space in the fyootyure always exists for us.

    A foothold on communion with chance spun with max direction.

    I would naht wish to see musself at 60 rn ... but I trust when this person gazes upon alla her days as they ooze from outta her life, she will do as I do now.

    So my view of Moi is no self-obsessed horror.

    It is reflectin' upon mortality's evident angels: the gal I been, the gal I see, an' the gal I trust to happen sum day.

    Course, the mirrah don't last forevah, which is prolly why we seek its counsel so much.

    It is neithah up nor down.

    Its frame inhabits anothah axis.

    Just remember that after each dark, lonely night comes a bright & new day with lots of sunshine and opportunities. I think this is enough for someone to keep his/her spirit going on and on.

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, there's a scale of hardship and hurdles.



    with 0 being a girl scout selling cookies and not making any sales after 10 minutes

    and 10 being an oil executive being held hostage by ISIS.


    I think you need to disclose where you're at before anyone can give you specific advice.

      Hardships are part of life and trying to put them on a scale of 1-10 or 1- 100 leave out leaves out the experience or capacity of a person to deal with hardship or even acknowledge there is hardship

      oil executive working in a warzone because the risks probably meant far more money for him to make ....

      i don't think the girlscout herself would care abut going without sale for 10 minutes. But the parent who doesn't let their child go anywhere outside alone ..without calling the child every five minutes or just driving the child everywhere ..

      would just save themselves the time ab buy the cookies from their child..

    Mind programming did the trick for me. I draw unimaginable joy from some recordings as I see myself transformed. There is no time for feeling down when you are in this frame of mind. One can endlessly suffer for years and years when they could simply flick the switch with deep trance subconscious programming.

    Many amen, aha, and ahaha moments reading these posts that ease the mind and soothe the spirit.

    I enter deep trance and explore new dimensions instead of kicking it to the curb with a stagnant one.

    Fitness is great for several reasons but passing a mirror and seeing your hard work is always a boost.


    I created a motivational niche brand recently and seeing positive quotes all over the place daily now is a cool byproduct of the niche.
