The worst place anyone could every be in is “stuck”. Whether it’s stuck in a job, stuck in a relationship, or stuck in a certain lifestyle, being stuck is never good. However, being motivated to make changes to our lives is hard as well. It takes a lot of energy to wake up every morning focused, in a good mood, and ready to work. Many people give in and instead of working on enhancing and progressing in their own life, they end up working on enhancing someone else’s. Instead of giving everything they’ve got into working on their own dreams, they wind up wasting their days away woking on the dreams of someone else. To me, this is one of the biggest tragedies that could happen to someone: losing their purpose. Not only is it essential for us to find our purpose, but it is also necessary that we pursue our purpose and share it with the rest of the world. Like I said earlier, staying motivated isn’t always easy, but like the common phrase goes, “nothing worth having ever comes easily”.
There are some little tips and tricks you can use to help you stay motivated and focused on a regular basis. This link provides 22 simple ways in which you can motivate yourself. These are small changes that could make a world of difference in your everyday life. Here is also a page that provides 10 morning habits of successful people. Incorporating even a few of these into your morning routine could amount to some big changes that could help bring you success.
The video I have attached to this blog was inspired by the lack of motivation I find so many people have. It is sad to me that so many people have lost their motivation and drive to pursue their purpose and dreams. I created this video as a means to hopefully help others realize that they might be wasting their life away working on someone else dream. I hope this video inspires people to get “unstuck” from their current situation and start making changes that will improve their lives. I have included a picture of the storyboard I started out with, a screenshot of my editing process and my final product so that everyone could see the development from my initial idea to the end result. I hope this video served it’s purpose and helped motivate and inspire you!
