    Default Staying Motivated

    So who finds it hard to keep themselves motivated?

    Cause right now, fleet life really and I mean truly sucks.
    Our PFC in our unit is costing us extra PT and IT'd , and it seems like our Gunny is an smart aleck. 6 hours of Suicide Prevention because someone in another unit decided to write a "suicide letter". No freedom off base , due to fresh boots getting arrested off base. -_-" man oh man.. I'm so sick of fleet life right now. Motivation level is 3 outta 10.

    To me, it's all about that "feel" in the end when you accomplish something or a task, big or small. You may not get a reward, but you'll still have that feel.

    Went into a college practical exam today with no motivation or confidence, figuring that I was going to flunk it like a boss.

    Went out of college feeling like a boss for pretty much bossing it, because it turned out I knew EVERYTHING. Went in thinking that I was going to be frelled if I was told to dismantle and clean out a printer. Easiest thing I ever did.

    College. Whoo.

    Default Re: Staying Motivated

    I consider myself difficult to motivate. I don't know why, I guess there's just a lot in life that I don't find an interest in. However, if someone dangles a videogame in my face, I just about drop everything I'm doing to work and save up for it. Like right now, working an on-call janitor job and an irregular babysitting job to save up for a 3DS and some newer games.

    After I get those things, I'll probably just slump back into my room for a couple months to play them. Then the cycle will most likely start over when Pokémon Z comes out.

    Do you mean morale or motivation? The two aren't the same, particularly in a military setting.

    Anyway if you're looking for suggestions, mine is to try to be part of the solution. That's easier to say than do of course. Still, if your PFC is screwing up vs being the one handing out punishments than maybe they could use a little help. And it sounds like you've got some people around that need squaring away. And maybe there's something else dysfunctional going on where somebody needs a hand or needs an idea.

    Now it might be harder to do that kinda stuff in a ridged chain of command than in a corporate setting, but I find just the practice of trying to think this stuff through and making an attempt to make things better motivating. And since most people just lady and moan when there are problems sometimes a little initiative can accomplish a lot more and lot easier than one might think.

    Depends.

    I used to be motivated about working a near-minimum wage job because it was supposed to be "temporary." I got comfortable settling for less, instead of actually trying to get a job that required my degree.

    So, I quit. And now that I'm looking for jobs in my field, I feel a hell of a lot better than the crap job I was at before, and I find it easier for me to do work and complete projects I set for myself.

    When you've been repeatedly told you won't achieve anything in your life by teachers, bullies and parents; when no one ever approves of what you think or want and do anything to impede you in your progresses; when you decide to go on your own, knowing there's no one who'll miss you back home and there is no more home to go back to and no merciful God who'll listen to your prayers; when you cannot count on any personal or material-bent moral anchors, because they already abandoned you or have been taken from you, then you hope and strive. But hope is nothing but poison: it'll kill your insides when it turns out it was just a lie.
    You want to know what motivates me? Despair itself! That growing void in the universe has tremendous power. I don't fight to survive, I fight so there'll be nothing left of me; and as a reward out of irony, I win each battle, only so that my anguish can continue. Soon you will all reach rock bottom as I have, then I will thrive!

    Here's something to motivate you:

    It's what despair sounds like.

    Staying motivated for me is doing something I like doing. I had this with my previous course I took in college (European Studies). Didn't really hate it, but also didn't really like it, so I didn't do anything because I just didn't care too much. Untill testweeks came and I started to realise I had to pass the test to get my EC's. Oh grozit.

    Eventually I got really stressed out and I even fallen sick for a long period of time. That was the time I started to think about what I wanted to do with my life. And I found out that I didn't want to do anything that had to do with European Studies. So I quit and thought about what I really wanted, and that's how I got to Speech and Language Pathology (I know, totally different). I got out of my comfort zone and dived head first in. But it was the best decision in my life. I really like the course and being able to help people communicate (again) is really rewarding.

    Moral of the story; just do the thing you like to do and makes you feel good about yourself, and that will keep you motivated

    I'm not the greatest person ever when it comes to getting motivated especially when it comes to school work. I've gotten better though. I think its because the few friends that I have are very motivated if its school related stuff or something for personal use. I want to be like them so whenever I find myself drifting away from what I should be doing I just remember that I want my friends motivational skills.

    I never stay motivated, I actually tried to be motivated when I was younger but it just doesn't last, it's only an ideal concept of moving forwards. What you want to do is just stop thinking about it and keep moving on doing whatever you have to/want to do! Have no energy? Then don't use it all up trying to "be motivated", just be real about things
