Motivated???? Not so much!!!!!

Motivation as defined by Mr. Webster is:
the act or an instance of motivatingor providing with a reason to actin a certain way:
I don't understand what her motivation was for quitting her job.
the state or condition of being motivated :
We know that these students have strong motivation to learn.
something that motivatesinducement; incentive:
Clearly, the company's long-term motivation is profit.

However, It is defined, I clearly don't have any.  It isn't that I don't want to be motivated or shouldn't be motivated.  I mean seriously I am out of shape, unorganized and can't keep a thought on track longer then a few minutes.  I know what I want to do, know what I need to do but honestly can't seem to do any of it.

Why is that?  Could it be because I don't have time? How about harmony?  A purpose? (not likely, as I said I am overweight and out of shape).  So what is it that keeps me from doing what needs to be done when it comes to my personal goals, dreams and over all health?

We know at work we can stay on task because if we don't do our jobs then we have unhappy bosses and unhappy bosses leads to unemployment and none of us want that.  So I have been trying to figure out why I can do the tasks and goals at work that need to be done but not do what I need to do to be a better and healthier person.  Do you have a goal or task that you want to do or accomplish and find yourself in the same situation?  I am sure there are more people out there like me then they want to admit.  I would love to hear what some of yours are.

I am no where near a morning person.  Never have been and never really will be unless of course I am on vacation.  Seriously it is like beating a piece of wood and hoping it turns into a wonderful piece of art out of random.  This morning however, I have been up since 5 a.m.  Seriously that shit never happens.  Ok unless I am on vacation and then I get up as the sun comes up literally.  See the pretty picture below for proof.

There is just something about a gorgeous morning sunrise.  However, I can't usually get my ass out of bed at home to watch it.  But if I am on vacation you better believe I am up and out and ready for the photography to start on that sun rise.  Why is that?  Have you ever had this issue?

I think it is because we are away from all of the hussle and bussle of our daily overwhelming, unorganized, electronic filled life that we can actually take a moment and enjoy all the wonders of Gods world.  Maybe that is the secret to getting some motivation is to somehow trick myself to think that I am on vacation.  That seems to be the only time I get up early, eat healthy and find away to get exercise in.  Maybe it is because no one knows us and we can play it off as being a tourist.  Either way, the things that I want to do during the day gets done on vacation and not on staycation or normal days.

There is so much I want to do, need to do and honestly have no desire or energy to do it.  Why you ask?  Well simple I let daily life get in the way and find every excuse possible to just sit on my ass.  I have great intentions that is for sure, I know I need to lose, I need to exercise.  Lord knows I have bought enough workout stuff but it is still sadly sitting in the original packaging.  Which is weird because I used to work out all the time.  I didn't lose weight but I did feel better about myself.  I wasn't sore all the time like I am now.

I would love to know what motivates you?  How do you get out of your slump and get things done?  Do you find that organization helps?  I try to put it on a calendar but tend not to look at the calendar.  Any suggestions or hurdles that you had or have that seem to work?

Leave me a comment below and let me know your thoughts, your breakthroughs and what you have found to work best for you.  It is time for me to get up out of this chair now and get to work.  So much to be done there but at least I am getting paid for it.  Maybe that is the trick.  Maybe if I complete a task then I can pay myself and then it would be more rewarding....lol.

I hope you all have a great and wonderful Tuesday and don't forget to leave me a comment, follow me on facebook at Walking My Own Path and let me know that I am not alone in this struggle.
