    Last days I am annoyed and bored from almost everything. The past weeks I have worked pretty hard, had a success in my regular job, but the previous 3-5 days I am sick of almost everything - from working in my daily job, from working on my own projects and also from making project to my college.

    It seems that I need to push some kind of a reset button.
    What's your trick in days like these? Do you have any ritual, motivation poster or something else?

    I dont think any amount of motivational videos or speaking really do anything. Motivation comes from knowing why you are doing something even if at the current moment it seems like a waste of time or stupid. I just think of what I will get out of it in the long run. To make tasks less menial I listen to music and do it bit by bit. Don't make it seem like you are climbing everest but climbing multiple of them. Hope it helped

    I'm always having hard times finding motivation.

    When I'm exhausted, a few glasses of beer help me relax and my tiredness is gone.

    If it doesn't help, I'd suggest you to fuck someone.

    My motivation comes when I think about the possibility of
    sleeping under a cardboard box. There is an overpass on
    the highway near where I live, and a number of homeless
    people sleep under cardboard boxes there. Most of them
    made bad choices in their lives and now they are paying
    the price. That is something I do not want and I keep
    working to make sure that I never have to resort to
    that type of tragic lifestyle.

    I have a goal/dream of what I want, and thinking about that keeps me motivated.
    Everyone has bad days where everything seems rubbish, but you just push through those days.

    Thats a good one thinking about where you could end up without grafting, I do that but I tend to be more positive and think about aspirations. Picture where you want to live, the places you want to go and the car you want to drive.

    To be honest my work rate is lower than I feel it should be, but then I also have a full time job and for me it is important to keep a good balance - go get some exercise, spend time with family or friends. That way when I have time to work on my methods I value that time and make the best of it, and find it rewarding. But personally if I spent every night trying to work I would go mad - but we are all different and I haven't reached the level of success as quickly as I wanted so draw your own conclusions from that.

    If you get sick, you go to sleep and wake up the next day and start the grind again! Get some good fresh air/eat well. Honestly though, if you are really passionate about something this is the motivation when you are past exhausted. At least for me ! :) Work 24/7 never stop!

    Well for me the money motivates me alot. Also I enjoy working with IM, I love the freedom it can bring and I wanna "achieve" something within IM.

    Poor thing. Well for me, whenever I'm exhausted to death I do yoga, watch Real Housewives of BH or Atlanta, look at the shoes I want to buy , look at pretty houses, look at my bills, etc. Anything that motivates me to get off my behind and make money. Shoes usually does the trick. But I'm a woman, so I don't know...

    I pin all my checks I get from working online on the wall above my computer. Everytime I am lacking motivation I look up at those checks and realize I need to work or else I will be forced to push shopping carts at target again.

    Goals are my motivation. Along the way I set aside mental breaks so I don't end up working mindlessly.
