How to stay in action even if you don’t feel like it

Will and desire determine the power to do people. Achievements, success and the realization of goals are always closely related to these aspects of attitude, essential to achieve what you want.

Many people let themselves be discouraged after a failure, and internally determine that they are not prepared for success, that it is not their time, or that they do not have the necessary conditions to do so.

However, the big key is keep you in permanent action. The doing, even when you don’t feel like it, are directly proportional to what you will get.

Beyond the laziness that can appear from time to time, if you really commit to yourself and your project of any order, it is essential that you make action a life strategy.

7 ideas to mobilize even if you don’t feel like it

For life to work you have to put energy, enthusiasm, optimism, and action into it. These 7 ideas work if you want to move from a state of lethargy and neglect, towards one of greater productivity and personal effectiveness.

  1. Try something different.Most people use mirror thinking with situations from the past: you try to assimilate something “similar” and associate it directly with “that” that is not bringing you the result in the present. Life is not linear, it has ups and downs, like a roller coaster. Try doing something totally different every day, even when discouraged. If you train enough, one step at a time, you will see that in less than ten days you will get out of that vicious cycle that limits you.
  2. Change the emotion behind your inaction. Everything you achieve (and what you don’t achieve) moves behind an emotion. Inaction, lack of will and the feeling of not moving forward have, behind, an emotion. Deepen your self-knowledge to see which is the one that does not bring the result you want. Is it fear? Is it a limiting belief that you carry since you were little? Change it for the opposite one, and rehearse the result.
  3. Start small.One of the contradictions is wanting to “get fed up” with changes when you begin to advance on a path of achievement. The ideal is, without losing enthusiasm, graduate them and take a gradual step by step, so that our unconscious and subconscious work in our favor, and, at the same time, strengthen this new internal state. A little different action, sustained over time, will have a great impact.
  4. Look for allies. Sometimes it is good to have fellow travelers. Find people related to your goal to achieve. For example, if you want to control your weight, you can exercise with someone who is on the same plan. The road becomes more pleasant if you do it accompanied.
  5. Do more of what gives you pleasure. Avoiding all the harmful things that downtime can have, focus on those constructive and positive things that bring you pleasure. The changes need to be anchored by the reward, something that works like a well-integrated system in the brain. It is made up of the amygdala, which regulates your emotions; the nucleus accumbens, which controls the release of dopamine (associated with well-being); the ventral area, which releases dopamine; the cerebellum (controls muscle functions), and the pituitary gland, which releases beta endorphins and oxytocin, responsible for pain relief, emotions such as love and positive bonds, among other things.
  6. Connect the purpose of your actions.From a philosophical and self-knowledge perspective, it is important that you seek the purpose that guides your goal. With that in clear, you will know why you will do it more at ease, since you will inhabit it with meaning.
  7. Beat procrastination. This term refers to what the vast majority of people do, procrastinate. If you do, you will get less energy and enthusiasm. Defeat procrastination: it is one of the great evils if you want to advance in life. Do it, and fast. Enjoy the ride. Set goals and meet them. Close open circles, which drain your energy.
