Find yourself in a rut lately? It’s okay to admit to it, actually it’s one of the first steps to getting out of one. It’s completely normal  to lose motivation and become cynical every once in a while, you are human after all. Though, to stay in these ruts for a long period of time is a huge waste of life, you are an individual who has goals embedded in the depths of your heart waiting to be fulfilled; it is your duty to fulfill them,
After you are honest with yourself and feel what needs to be felt, you must then reiterate: what you love, what your goals are and all of your positive traits. This will help rekindle your motivation, confidence, and self belief.
Also, try to get yourself out of the house and surround yourself with people who inspire you. If you don’t think you have anyone in your life that inspires you, then encourage yourself to inspire someone. In a nutshell, just submerge yourself in good conversation as well as expressing negative thoughts to get them off of your chest.
The last thing I suggest is to shake things up in your life. Whether it be a new  haircut, a new shade of lipstick, or redecorating, little changes like this can really help with pulling you out of a slumpy routine and enter some spontaneity into your life.
Just remember only you have the power to pull yourself out of pessimistic thoughts, so don’t waste even more time waiting for someone else too. A little effort can go a long way, so give these tips a try, lighten up and laugh at yourself. “Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors to the picture by including humor, and your picture begins to lighten up,”   Allen Klein once wisely wrote.
