    I haven't been motivated to do anything lately. It really sucks because I come up with all of these great ideas to work on but as soon as I get on my computer, I'll I can think about is checking FB, Reddit, and playing video games.

    What do you guys do to stay motivated? I would love any tips.

    On a side note, somebody FINALLY bought one of my Fiverr gigs which is pretty exciting. :)

    Listen to music that inspire you, do what you like to do most, look for reasons you want to earn (example cars, jets, trips, girls etc).

    Uninstall your games, get your a** to work and reach your dreams.

    I have a list of what I want to buy. Expensive stuff. Those motivate me in earning more money.

    Leave facebook alone unless you're using it to make money otherwise its just a massive waste of time, concentrate on your goals and work hard to achieve them. Don't look at the pictures above for too long it will make you blind :D.

    People around me motivate me, especially the ones that need help.

    well dude. Sounds like your kind of in an emotional slump haha. Here's what I do when I feel unmotivated.

    1. Take a break: Just stop for a few days. Take some time to hang out with friends, go to a concert or something. Do something for a few days that doesnt involve work. After some time, you'll be energized again and be good to work.
    2. If you cant take a few days off, take a walk: Walking helps relieve stress and keeps you from getting totally out of shape.
    3. Go outside: Being cooped up sucks, go outside, put on a pair of sunglasses and just wander around. If you smoke, grab a Cigarette or whatever. Seriously, getting outside and feeling the sun is totally helpful.
    4. Listen to music: Listen to something that makes you happy. Itll bring up your motivation through feeling good
    5. Make money: I know this is pretty weird to say, but hear me out. When you make money doing what you love, you feel motivated to make more.

    If all else fails (and it usually doesnt), I sit down and watch an episode or two of King of the Hill. Its my favorite show. I even put it on on another screen while I work. As I write this post, I have Futurama on. Just keeps me from going insane.

    Best of luck dude :D

    Btw, it also helps if you write down the things you need to do that day. Look at it, and start from the top. Dont stop until your done.

    one more thing. Remember to take frequent breaks. Every 30 - 60 mins, I get up and walk around or smoke a cigarette for a few minutes. Just makes it so you dont go insane.

    Thats it. good luck :D

    Go to the gym and while you are working out think about what you want to get done during the day. This will get your endorphins fired up about those normally boring tasks and it will feel extremely accomplishing to actually get them done.

    Wake up in the morning and watch this video. Just imagine that you cannot be stopped until you succeed.
