Are You Facing Lack of Motivation?
Are you feeling unmotivated? Are you unable to get out of bed in the morning with a sense of purpose? Do your goals seem to be drifting further away from you?
When it comes to the source of your ambition, a range of internal and external forces are often at play. When people are internally motivated, they tend to do things because they truly enjoy it, on the other hand, when they are externally motivated, they rely on praise, status, money or accolades.
Friends, family, work or society can influence our goals and impact our motivation levels to a large extent however, it is more fulfilling to be driven by intrinsic motivation as it leads to greater success.
The lack of motivation is essentially a lack of passion where the person has no goals, desires, or willingness to work. It usually has deeper psychological problems and could have some elements of depression.
