It has been more than a week since you returned from your vacation, and you must admit that finding motivation to get back to work is just tricky. You’ve been able to relax and recharge, but you’re not ready yet to get back to the reality of the day-to-day grind.
Some say that it may be a case of post-travel depression. It is when you need to get yourself back to reality, but your mind refuses to. While you may have done a bit of work while on vacation, you spent most of your days having fun and relaxing.
And while it was nice to have gone on vacation, it only made coming back to work more daunting.
You love your job, and there is no doubt about that. However, losing that motivation to get back on your feet and get yourself working is not just inconvenient; it is an issue that needs to be dealt with seriously.
How does losing your motivation harm you? You lose the potential to earn money, but you also lose the chance to...
All the great things in life do not come easy. They take a lot of time, effort, and dedication. But everyone has a picture of what they want inside their heads. They set a timeline for themselves to achieve it. They challenge themselves to strive harder and to do better.
They fantasize about the results and remain hopeful that the end results will bring them the happiness they've always wanted.
But when things don't seem to meet your expectations, you start to feel frustrated. You begin to wish that things would go by as quickly as possible.
Everything seems to follow a time delay relay.
For example, when you are not in a relationship, you want to find your forever partner even more desperately. If you are working on building a career or business, you want it to take off to achieve success in a matter of months. You always expect good results without putting in the time.
But what if success doesn't happen right away? What if you...
This Summer Solstice is a special gateway because it combines the Summer Solstice with a Solar Eclipse! In this article, I'm going to be sharing three major points for you to understand the overview of the energies at hand that will be happening at this time in history so that you can have a quick, easy way of utilizing the different energies that will be streaming into the planet.
First and foremost, you need to understand that the ancients understood that the solstices and the equinoxes were very important portals and gateways into the other realms. They saw these astronomical configurations as a time when "the veils would thin" in reality.
Maybe you have heard that phrase before, "veils thinning," but what does that mean?
What that means is that our mind's regular habits and patterns are interrupted during these gateways. This is because, during these potent portals, our planet's usual vibrations...
Frustration can eat you from the inside. It winds you up and makes you feel like you are not in control of the situation. Not only does it suck the energy out of you, but it distracts you and steals your time.
There are several causes of frustration, and each one has its own impact on people. The more invested they are in others, the more likely are they to experience frustration.
What can you do then?
Well, sometimes, frustration can be avoided if you look at the situation from a different perspective. It can actually be a positive experience, giving you an idea of how things can be done or how you can work differently.
Dealing with frustration could also mean gaining the power to keep on going forward. However, if you end up going in circles, frustration only leaves you feeling mad. Your mind will be foggy, and you won’t be able to think straight. If you are already starting to lose control of your emotions, then it’s about time to get...
There is nothing more fulfilling than being able to earn money in the comfort of your own home. In this day and age, when going out can put you and your health at risk, being productive at home is one of the many gifts the digital world has provided.
Perhaps your ideal working situation is working on your patio while getting some sun and wearing your swimsuit. Even if you don't need that type of extravagance, for every digital nomad, getting a freelance job that allows them to stay at home and still be productive is the most ideal.
The fact that your office can be anywhere is what makes working from home even more exciting. When you work from home, you have the freedom to work wherever you want to. You can do it by the beach or perhaps in your hotel room halfway across the world.
While professional and consistent work can still be achieved even when you are on those travel adventures, staying motivated and productive while traveling is one of the greatest...
Have you found yourself procrastinating lately? It might be comforting to know that procrastination isn't something that only humans do. After all, Newton's Law of Motion states that anything at rest will remain at rest unless compelled to move.
If the entire universe is procrastinating, how do you determine the causes of procrastination within yourself?
You tell yourself you need to be working. Your thoughts wander about what to eat for dinner or when you can get out of the house to pay the bills. You stop to check your social media accounts and perhaps even chat with a few friends.
Procrastination is not just about pushing back work. It could go beyond, affecting the other parts of your life.
In the end, you regret all the time you wasted putting off something that you could have already completed. Sometimes, the time runs out. The opportunity that slipped by makes it all the more...
Have you ever wondered how other people deal with their problems? Any professional who has found success in what he does follows various motivation methods. Still, one thing is true for all: they have a mindset of finding the positive within the negative.
Rather than seeing the problem as a burden to their growth, it fuels them to become more. They turn their challenges into opportunities for learning and improvement. In a way, they are left to become better versions of who they were before the problem came along.
This may seem like a simple case of mind motivation, but it comes with several benefits.
First, it reduces the stress that comes with the problem because it is viewed as a learning opportunity.
Second, the problem becomes less intimidating because it is viewed from a more positive perspective.
Third, it allows you to think fast on your feet. Instead of wallowing in sadness, you learn to deal with the problem head-on.
Fourth, it helps you to...
Do you have a fear of being left behind? This fear happens every year to practically everyone. New Year's resolutions rear their ugly head, and you try to set your yearly goals, but you already feel like you haven't accomplished the goals you set for this past year. With this world based around productivity, there is a constant push of needing to move and do more. This feeling makes us feel like we are already way behind, even if we aren't.
Whenever you wake up in the morning, do you feel the slightest touch of anxiety? Do you feel the need to get up and get moving on your tasks? Do you check your mail and social media messages before you actually get out of bed?
When you're feeling behind in life, you start your day early and deal with a lot of emails, work tasks, household chores, and other things just to get ahead. With your busy schedule, you forget to take a pause and enjoy the day. Before you know it, it's nighttime.
And although you have accomplished a lot, it still...
There is no denying that you have your own ways of getting things done. You're comfortable in your techniques and may have spent years perfecting them, so whatever it is you're doing almost always ends up working out correctly. However, you've grown afraid of experimenting or shifting your perspective because you're scared that something might not turn out well. When you're stuck within a certain mindset, you don't grow or develop. You may be hindering your career or personal growth if you're too afraid to make changes, no matter how small.
Whether it is performing a task, starting a conversation, or doing an activity, a small change in mindset or action can make a huge difference. What does it mean to make a shift?
The shift is opening up to possibilities. It is warming up to something new. Making a shift in mindset or action could help open your heart and mind to trying out something you've not had the chance to try before.
Making a shift may not sound too...
Everyone wants to be liked and loved. People want to be appreciated for what they do or for their intelligence. Others want to show off their good nature or their natural speaking ability.
While everyone wants to be accepted, it can be quite tough to teach oneself how not to care about what others think about them. Sadly, when you want others to like you the way you want to be liked, you end up giving them all the power over you. You start to rely on them for self-acceptance. Their opinion begins to play a pivotal role in your success as a person. That is where the vicious cycle begins.
Perhaps you, too, have wondered how not to let people get to you. When you begin to believe that other people's opinions or impressions of you is all that matters, then telling yourself not to care becomes more difficult.
In wanting to be accepted, you end up losing a part of who you are. When you continue to worry about what others will say, you end up seeing only the reality that...
