One of the best ways to absorb a piece of information in your mind is to read about it on your own with full focus.
When you have a solid game plan before starting any study session, it naturally improves your productivity. This way you can be ensured that you make each session as productive as possible and make the best out of your time.
It means that you make a timetable in order to enjoy a productive day along with getting yourself nearer to success every day. Along with social activities make sure that you prescribe a fixed number of hours to study each day.
We both know how hard it is to deal with a lazy co-worker or a lazy person in general. To get things done from them could rock our tolerance to the core. We will be torn between ‘whether to leave them out’ or ‘to make them work’. Visible truth is, dealing with a lazy person is kind of a mixed bag. It ‘can be’ possible and we ‘can make it’ possible. At the same time, it really could be impossible. There’s nothing much left for us to do.
1. Could be Personal problems
2. Met with Unreachable targets
3. Struggling with some part of the job/work they have
4. If it’s too easy, People become lazy
5. If people are not-valued
6. If there’s a Lack & Difficulty
7. Too much time on Hand
8. Not enough self-esteem, Self-Efficacy
9. No sufficient moral support
10. Monotonous/Same tone of work
11. Failure of Rejection
12. Lack of Interest
13. Procrastination Habit
14. If they don’t know what to do
15. The Attitude of ‘Why Bother’
16. They are just lazy.
Two things become clear here. There are people who are lazy. There are people who need some extra push to stay away from laziness.
I hope that the possible reasons we shared here would be relatable to us every day.
Despite different factors, we still can give some push to motivate lazy persons in life.
Without a doubt, Intrinsic Motivation is the better one. The ones who are genuinely motivated have succeeded compared with others.
1. On the other hand, extrinsic motivation is not always bad. Reward programs, financial perks could help people do the work with even more enthusiasm.
2. One type of extrinsic motivation that we saw earlier is ‘Integrated Motivation.’ It could be an alternative when an intrinsic motivation fails or not possible.
3. To obtain the best results, sometimes external motivations could work.
4. For a long successful run, you need a self-encouraging intrinsic motivation.
5. When intrinsic motivation didn’t work out, you can still make people going by giving them the right reasons. The point is, with a little help, extrinsic motivation can also get work done for you here.
At last, you are the better judge of yourself. You know what works for you and whatnot.
I am sure that the types of motivation we discussed here will benefit you. It will help you identify the motivation scale that’s around us.
On that note,
Any type of Motivation should end up benefitting you and your values. That’s the core of how motivation works. If it’s not beneficial, not positive, and ethical, it’s better to step away from those motivating factors. Don’t matter if they are intrinsic or extrinsic. Sometimes, combining intrinsic and extrinsic could yield better results for you. In the end, you are the perfect judge.
1. You need to Live and Let Live
I got my life to battle. You got your own life to battle. It’s an everyday event. Let it be as such. Live and let live.
2. Take the next small step that you can
It’s a life lesson that’s right in front of us but we learn it late. Been through so much in life? Don’t know what to do? Take the next step that you can. Calling your friend, eating your favorite food, going out for a walk, stepping out, working out and everything is a small step. Take it! And, with the small steps slowly walk.
3. Realizing the importance of people around you
You and I often tend to forget how important the people around us are. They make our life run smoother every day. Your friends and family take care of you. It’s neither money nor anything else. Let’s start realizing how important they are to us. Let’s appreciate little things people do for us. It’s right in front of us. We have to see it sooner and cherish it.
4. Regrets and Guilt’s are blocking you
It becomes hard to see the right thing when you are filled with guilt and regret. They both hinder your emotional wellness. Take care of it. Move past your life’s regrets and guilt’s but don’t forget the lessons it gave. Come out of your regrets and guilts as soon as you can.
5. Little things you do impact your tomorrow
Including healthy food choices, little things you do today has a big impact on your tomorrow. Starting your exercises today impacts a healthier tomorrow. Saving a little amount of money can help tomorrow. Little things you start today in faith will help you tomorrow.
The reality here is life always caught us off-guard. It throws unexpected twists and turns in every turn-over. It becomes difficult to anticipate what’s going to happen. Which is why we tend to learn lessons late.
Furthermore, there are reasons and lessons we learn from the people around us too. The dos and don’ts of life can be learned easily from someone who’s going astray. You don’t need a separate lesson here. Constructive life lessons can be learned early. But, practical and self-realizing life lessons are often too late when we learn. That’s how you make yourself stronger. What’s important is that we should learn our life lessons. It doesn’t matter if it’s late.

“The Desire for a more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, Paradoxically, The acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience”
- Mark Manson
Life is a balance of positives and negatives every day. You feel happy, that’s great. You feel bad, it’s fine. Let it cool down. The balance breaks when you start expecting too much positivity.
It breaks completely when you are not ready to accept negative experiences. You need positives to inspire. You need negatives to grow. But, if you expect everything to be positive around you, it can disappoint you easily. A lot of expectations can go sideways.
Positive experiences in life are a morale boost. There is no place for second thoughts about it. It gives you the confidence to move forward. But, is it good to look for it every time? If you ask me, the answer would be No.
if I keep looking only for positive experiences in life I could lose focus on the reality that’s in my hands. To take life as it comes will become difficult. The mind only desires what you expected. It will not be ready to expect and accept the unexpected.
On the other hand, with every negative experience in life, I learn a lesson. I get a piece of reality. Understanding what went wrong and what could have been better will be easy. To grow forward will be smoother and wiser.
Take both positive and negative experiences in life. Build yourself with it. Life’s a balance that holds both good and bad equally. Taking them both and growing is the best thing to do. This quote is a piece of reality we need to keep reminding ourselves.
1. Fitness with your Friends:
Opt for Group Fitness classes. It is fun and you will always look forward to it. You will not get bored. Try it out. Fitness with friends is fun and motivating too.
2. Try Exercise Mix-ups:
You might feel bored and not motivated to exercise if you keep doing the same routine. Mix it up a little bit. For instance, go for an early morning walk. The next day, do yoga. Plan weekly twice or thrice for fun routines like Zumba or other dance fitness programs. Depending upon your convenience, time and ability, mix exercises a little bit to keep going.
3. Knowing Visible Difference:
Get to know people experiencing visible differences due to their exercise routines. Look how fit people find it easy to follow a healthy lifestyle overall. It should motivate you to start exercising. It will at least motivate you to try a simple fitness routine i.e. to start with healthy food choices.
4. Exercising is ‘Self-Care’:
Everything that augments and improves you, on the whole, is a form of self-care. Exercising is one such best way of self-care. Take care of your body as well as you can. It’s the one constant thing that comes with you all along.
5. You can have a fitness role-model:
Fitness role models can sometimes seem too unrealistic for you. Fitness role models are good, but every individual has a unique body system and functioning. You have to choose fitness routines that are good for you and not what your role-model is doing. But yet, take things that you can do. Take things that suit you. Motivate from them but do what is best for you.
“Do what you can with all you have, wherever you are”
- Theodore Roosevelt
How do we take on life? You do it by taking your first step. That is how every success journey we heard so far took place. It all begins with a first step.
Always, do what you can and do it with all you have. Even if there’s nothing left for you, you have your will. It’s an indestructible asset for you. With the will you have, confidently take your first step towards your goals.
Don't look for a perfect stage to begin your journey. You have to start where you are. Possibilities and opportunities will not wait for you till you feel like you are where you want to be.
So, start where you are in life right now. It’s doesn't matter if you are struggling, or growing or successful. If you have to do something in life, do it from where you are. With every step you take, the success becomes closer and closer. If you can do it, then do it with all your efforts, hard work, time and energy.
We heard people saying that they are waiting for the right time. Sometimes, you can’t wait that long. You have to begin now. Achievers around us are good examples. They don’t wait for the right time. They don’t mind where they are in life. They simply do what they can with what they have. Eventually, it takes them places.
“Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today”
- Will Rogers
Let’s be honest here. The past does take up too much of our time. We can’t help it. It will take some time for us to emotionally break the wall of the past and walk forward.
You cannot just come out. It’s not the right way too. You need time. Take that time. Process it. Learn from it. But to heal from it, you need to get up. Don’t stay in the ‘yesterday’ longer.
It only takes too much of your time and energy. The result will always be unproductive. We all have experienced it. Yet, we still keep doing it.
Putting our thoughts and energy to what happened in the past will wear us down physically and emotionally. But, if you look today, it’s a new start to do things better than yesterday.
Every day when you wake up, you get a chance to make things right. You can make the ‘past’ heal better by taking ‘present’ in your hands and making it happy.
Every little thing you do today can impact your happiness for tomorrow. Remind yourself that, when you look down the past, it yields no good for you and you know it.
So, start giving importance to your present. Only take the lessons from the past. Start concentrating on 'Today'. It will be easy for you to work things out with your life. Instead, don't keep spending too much of your time on 'yesterday'.
By under-estimating tasks or anything in case of your personal as well as professional life, you bring in lethargy and careless mind-set. It is one of the major reasons for people procrastinating. Under-estimating habits lead to procrastinating things. It gives the individual a feeling of less-importance. As a result, postponing and ignoring starts to happen.
Likewise, over-estimating habit makes people procrastinate. It quickly brings disinterest. It leads to a feeling of disconnect with the concerned project/work.
3. Poor Time-Management
It leads to procrastination especially with students and young professionals starting with their careers.
4. Unclear about What to Do
While going through this phase where we don't know what to do, we procrastinate. It happens to everyone at some point in life. It applies to your career, personal life, business, studies, etc.
Particularly concerning young people and professionals, 'unclear about what to do' can happen often. To cope with that, people tend to procrastinate.
5. Lack of Interest
With no interest or decreased-interest, people start to procrastinate.
6. Not Motivated
If people start to feel that if the work they do no longer motivates them, they start to procrastinate.
7. Cannot see where this task is headed
People start to procrastinate if they don't see where the work is headed. Similarly, if the work is not beneficial to them they start to ignore it.
8. Voluntarily Delaying
It's the most common reflection of procrastination. People knew that the work has to be done. Instead, they focus on other things. If people show voluntary-delay in their activities it eventually means they are procrastinating for some reason.

Often people ignore things being said for the sake of not liking the particular person. Don’t be. Listen to what is being said. If it’s good, then you have to take it. If it is bad, ignore it. But, don’t let go of things just for the sake of your ego towards the person.

Maintain a boundary when it comes to social media. It’s what the people take as a stage to spread all things negative these days. It impacts and influences many people adversely. Don’t be the person spreading hatred in it. “Stop Spreading Negativity”, this is an excellent form of self-motivation you need in life.
Be the person who doesn’t spread negativity in any way. It can be in any way like demotivating people, bad-mouthing or gossiping, spreading rumors, wishing to people bad things, criticizing, putting them in embarrassing situations, being irresponsible, etc. Don’t spread hatred. It makes you a highly motivated individual that people look up to.
To retrospect, yourself is a great way to stay motivated to your own self. Retrospection paves way for understanding your good and bad qualities, past mistakes, past successes & failures, and personal improvement.
Retrospection triggers happy memories in the brain especially when it is about childhood or other happy times you had. Retrospect yourself. It is essential to keep yourself driven and motivated.
3. Take Breaks:
We need short breaks to refresh and rejuvenate ourselves. Take short breaks while you are working in the office. Same way, take a short break and spend it for family amidst all other busy things in life.
Taking short breaks whenever possible helps to stay motivated in their life. We can see many people who do things they like by taking short breaks from their careers even.
4. Follow you Passion:
There’s no better Self-Motivation than following your passion. The things you are passionate about bring a high level of self-motivation.
Follow your passion at some point in life. The idea you are passionate about can bring all the motivation you need.
1. Find the ‘One Thing’ that motivates you:
It can be your family, Kids, promotion, business, etc. It varies from each one of us.
For example: For Artists, to put their artwork in a particular art-museum could be the ‘One Thing’ that motivates them. To Parents, their Kid’s education could be that ‘One Thing’. For Travellers, there could be one specific place in the world. Everyone will have that one specific thing. It drives and motivates them. Find that ‘One thing’. It automatically motivates you to work on it.
2. End-Results are Good Motivators:
Look at the end result. Imagine how things will be when you finish what you started amidst all challenges. Knowing the reasons why you are doing things will help you stay motivated in the long-life run.
3. Demotivation Motivates People:
We can see people who have achieved great things after met with humiliations, disrespect, and embarrassments. Demotivating people and their speeches have made people realize their potential. People will be determined to prove them wrong. Disrespect, Demotivation, and humiliation are life’s biggest driving factors for people to stay motivated and achieve their goals.
4. Remind yourself about ‘Why You Have Started’:
Every time you feel down, think of why you have started doing things. The wonderful reason that made you start your work will again motivate you to continue further. Whenever met with failures and difficulties don’t forget to remember why you started. Kindle the inner strength and spirit through self-motivation.
5. Self-Respect is a way of Self-Motivation:
Self motivations take many forms. One such exceptional way of self-motivation is having self-respect. It’s an essential life requirement.

1. Being Preoccupied With Work ... At the point when You're Not at Work
Despite the fact that you probably won't be working at a given minute, on the off chance that you're consuming mental energy thinking about your activity, at that point, your work is preventing your ability to heal from the stresses of your day. In order to improve, you need time to yourself after the actual duty stops and time when you stop thinking about that job altogether.
2. For the most part, Decreased Satisfaction
This is the capacity to feel less cheerful and satisfied with your profession and with your home life. You might feel disappointed or even held when it comes to whatever is going on at home, in society or with your social activities.
3. Health Problems
Over a long period of time, serious constant stress can produce real health difficulties like digestive issues, heart disease, depression, and obesity.
1. Create a vision for your life.
By creating a life vision you can determine what the end objective or destination.
2. Go after your dreams.
Your time is short so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” Sadly, too many of us do, caught in a life that isn’t right for us by fear and inertia.
3. Smile more.
A smile may not hold the doctor away, but it can make you feel great, make others trust you higher, and lead to a longer life.
4. Get happy with being you.
You were made by the Universe for a reason and you are a one-of-a-variety. Own who you are.
5. Create routines.
Whether it's a morning prayer, evening manuscript or weekend mealtime, routines can help you include your values into your life.
6. Perform Meditation daily.
Your asset of a few minutes of time will come back to you tenfold in the form of improved insight, inner peace, creativity, and kindness.
1. Start believing in yourself and your capacity to succeed.
When it comes to success, nothing is more significant and powerful than self-confidence and belief in oneself. In fact, if we want to be successful, self-belief is more significant than intelligence, talent, background, or just about anything else.
2. Permit your emotions to flow through you.
At the point when a solid negative feeling begins, watch the feeling in your body without judgment, realizing it will pass - instead of nourishing it with stories in your mind or putting away it somewhere down in your heart.
3. Be happy for others.
Sometimes it can be hard to be happy for others, but defeating those jealous tendencies can lead to significant changes in your professional or social life, as well as your emotional wellbeing.
4. Slow down.
A slower-paced life means making time to enjoy your mornings, rather than rushing off to work in an excitement. It means taking time to appreciate whatever you are doing, to enjoy the outside, to actually focus on whomever you are talking to or spending time with — instead of always being attached to a phone or laptop, instead of always thinking about work tasks and emails.
