What was the last big decision you had to make? Did you agonize over it or was it easy to decide what to do? The process of making decisions can feel like it’s an art form. In reality, making the best choice for yourself doesn’t have to be as difficult as you think.
Your to-do list grows by the day and it seems like you rarely can mark anything off as completed. You set goals for yourself in your career, health, or relationships and just can’t make enough progress for it to be worth it. If you are feeling stuck in a rut and can’t move forward, it’s time to hit the refresh button in your life. Here are a few steps on how to accomplish a goal when you feel zero motivation.
In my last post, I talked about how to overcome your self-doubt. Now it’s time for you to add a few new tips to help you focus or re-focus on your goal. Have you ever set a goal and felt motivated the first day? Then as the days turn into weeks then into months, your motivation fades. This loss of motivation can lead you to beat yourself up and add to your negative self-talk about how you can’t achieve anything. It’s time to overcome this narrative and put a new plan in place. These 7 tips will help you focus on any goal you want to accomplish.
Do you sometimes avoid trying because you are fearful that you will fail? You may view failure as something to avoid at all cost. I want to challenge how you view failure and help you use failure as an opportunity.

Often times if I chose to look at what is causing problems in my life I find that there isn’t anyone else to blame except myself. It’s much easier and feels better to blame someone else. Being the victim is easier than being the one that needs to change. The problem I find is that playing this victim card only keeps me stuck. It often only makes me more angry, bitter, and frustrated.
I want change in my life but sometimes I don’t want to take the necessary steps for it to happen. It’s easy to say I want things to change, but the hard part comes when I have to take action. I have to be the one to decide if I want to take the challenge to get what I want, which also requires me to put in the hard work to get it. Here’s how I figured out how to get out of my own way.
