FEELING DISCOURAGED & FINDING INSPIRATION

If you're an ambitious person and have goals for yourself, you also probably put a lot of pressure on yourself. It can be really frustrating to have your heart set on a goal or vision and have major setbacks along the way. Sometimes these setbacks are really not setbacks at all...and maybe even blessings. Remember that just because your vision isn't being laid out exactly how you thought at this stage in your life, doesn't mean it won't one day.


Sometimes feelings of discouragement can lead to lack of motivation and inspiration, leading you down an even darker hole. Here are some of the ways I like to reignite that flame to keep me pushing towards my goals & vision!


1. Reading Success Stories

I like to scroll through motivational accounts on Instagram as well as Pinterest and read about people's personal success stories to motivate me to keep going


2. Be your own Inspiration

I heard this in a Lizzo song and honestly it really stuck. Be your OWN inspiration. Pretend you are a younger version of yourself and despite any struggle, you kept on going because there was a greater reason of why you started.


3. Affirmations

Remind yourself daily to be patient and respect the process. Remember some people reach similar goals faster than you but that doesn't mean someone is BETTER than you, it was just their time...and yours will come too.
