10 Ways to Get Motivated When You’re in a Slump

Even the most driven of us — you, me, or even Tony Robbins — can feel unmotivated at times. In fact, sometimes it feels as if there’s nothing we could do.

Yes, I know. You don’t feel like doing anything. I’ve been there, and in fact I still feel that way every now and then. You’re not alone. But I’ve learned a few ways to get motivated when I know I have to get stuff done.

1. Have a singular goal in mind.

Most times we feel unmotivated because there’s simply so much going on in our lives. There’s so much stuff to do that we feel like doing nothing at all. Choose one thing to do, just one, and do the best you can. Tell yourself that this one thing will be the one and only thing you will do today, so you might as well get it done with.

    1. Thank you so much, Sammy. Appreciate the compliments.

      Nothing can replace perseverance. Not intelligence, not talent, not luck. If you do not persevere, you cannot win. It’s that simple.


  2. Cristian,
    Thank you for facing this and writing about it! I appreciate the way you addressed a universal part of earth’s journey.
    This year, my word of the year is DECIPHER. When you talked about seeing the view from the top down, I’m going to decipher if I have climbed the wisest mountain. I also created a list of things that bring me joy (lighting bakery scented candles, browsing the greeting card section, walking through Hobby Lobby for creative ideas etc).
    With support of our individual and collective quests! Christina (Oak Ridge, TN)
