What helps you personally, to stay motivated?

not a fitness question, haha. I mean with school, and just, life. I'm usually very driven and motivated to get my work done, and to keep pushing through obstacles, but lately, I just feel burnt out. I still am able to get evetything done, it just takes longer for me to get started than it use to, and I finish late. what helps keep you motivated? Thanks in advance! I hope this made sense...

OOOHHH MAAAN! I know what you're saying. I've got one more month of school and I'm pooped. Fourth quarter started out rough, and all my friends said that too. Just knowing that it's almost over and I gotta make it usually gets me through. :o

I know! I have to do a final project and have it finished in 4 days! Going to start it very soon-but prior I just did an essay, my brain feels likes its about to blow!

But I guess that's true-I just gotta keep telling myself-almost done! Almost done! Haha. Good luck with school! There always cram in the work last minute, don't they?!

I wrote an essay Thursday night and now I have to finish Huck Finn and do a book report on it by Monday for my AP English class. We also have some things to do for extra credit that she said we can hand in by the end of the week. I'll take all the extra credit I can get!

Oh goodness-that does sound like a lot! I have extra credit as well, hoping I can squeeze that in- you can definatly never have too much credit! Good luck with all that!

What helps me stay motivated is just never quitting!! It doesn't matter so much as to how long it takes as long as you finish what you started!!

It's normal to feel a little burnt out, but sometimes we need to fall in order to get back up on our feet. You become stronger this way. Nobody can always be at the top all the time. Things will improve!!

Your problem is mood. A mood is an emotion that manifests itself long-term. Do things that make you happy, sometimes alone and sometimes with someone you love, and your mood will change. Continue doing happy things and your mood should stay uplifted. Also, focus on God and let Jesus be part of you through your days.

Hey Marcus! I don't think it's mood, I think I just focus too much on what I need to get done, rather than what I have gotten done. Plus I have family stuff going on, on top of school, and I'm not a good multi tasker. Thanks though, I'll remember the mood thing for next time. ;) sorry I replied so late! Just finished a paper; phew! Thanks for answering. :)

Self motivation indirectly provided by points of what I see as authority figures
Think of who you look up to, and imagine them focusing on your goals

Or them helping you focus on your goals
