I’ve been going through a tough time in my life. My dad has been lecturing me about using this time as an opportunity to learn new things and improve. Every afternoon when I got back from school I would just watch TV and do non-productive things.
When I think about it it’s pretty pathetic, I was being lazy. One day I decided to watch the movie ‘Homeless to Harvard: The Liz Murray Story.’ It’s a pretty old movie but it motivated me. It inspired me to get up and get to work.
I mean you are the only person who can motivate yourself and get yourself going. There are people out there and who have been through worse stuff than you and yet they still live a somewhat normal life and go to work.
I know it’s difficult but if you keep on coming up with excuses you’ll never get anywhere in life and you’ll die without achieving what you were put on earth to do. It’s pretty harsh but it’s true. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to die without doing what I was put on earth to do. I look on the street and see people in wheelchairs begging for money at the robot. It saddens me because there are jobs out there for people with disabilities and they could be doing something productive with their lives, not to mention that they stand in the sun all day and damage their skin.
It’s a thing called laziness and self-pity and it’s pathetic. It sounds rude but it’s the truth. Wallowing in self-pity and being lazy is pathetic and won’t get you anywhere in life. So I challenge you to get up actually start living your life. If you still don’t feel motivated then here’s a little more motivation.
