Have you ever had one of those days when you say to yourself, “I have no motivation to do anything” or ask yourself “Why do I have no motivation for anything”? Perhaps this is acceptable on a casual, lazy summer day when you are on vacation from your usual duties and nothing is at stake. But for some people, there is a constant, perpetual feeling: I have no motivation for life. Whether it’s going to the gym, going to work, looking for work, or doing house chores, sometimes it’s hard to work up the motivation to do anything. Below are a few simple strategies to allow you to get a “jump start” on your motivation.
Focus on the Little Positive Things

Don’t Underestimate Yourself
Regaining some confidence in your own ability will help you build some momentum into actually completing a task.
Focus on the Process, Not the End Result
Focus not on the distance of the end result, learn to appreciate all the little things that come along the way of getting there.
Find People To Tag-team With

There are many more useful advice to learning how to get motivated when you have no motivation to do anything. The most important thing is that it all starts with you. Remember, nobody can motivate you more than you. It may not be easy to get started, but once you pick up momentum, you will achieve your goal before you know it.
