Are you ready to make a change in your life but you don’t know where to start and you lack motivation? I think we all experience this sometimes in our life’s. Motivating yourself can look more difficult than it is. Until you get in a state that is called; FLOW.
Before I started my travel in January I made a website. I never ever built a website before, had no clue what HTML meant and WordPress looked like Chinese Mandarin while working in it. Search Engine Optimisation and how to make sure my content was attractive enough? No clue, still don’t know everything.
But I set myself down behind the computer and told myself to take baby steps in teaching myself instead of spending shit loads of money to someone to build it for me. I did the layout maybe 20 times, got so angry at myself for not understanding some things and looked at YouTube so much that I couldn’t see the word YouTube anymore. I even crashed my website and needed to start all over again. But I noticed I was learning and growing. I wanted this so I worked for it. I did something—> Got inspired by learning —> got more motivated than ever.
I started with the home page then another page and I sometimes noticed myself working till late at night on this website. Just like reading a good book, I didn’t want to stop learning, editing things and creating my website. I was in such a good flow and was so proud of every step I took. I got motivated by every step and that’s how I managed to learn and grow.
You must know that you are the root of your own problems and lack of motivation. You need to become the inspiration itself to achieve things. You are your own motivation and you will fail, be angry at yourself and have to do things again and again. But “doing something” is around the corner, waiting for you. Even the smallest steps will bring you from something to anything.
