Randomly, it occasionally hits me that this is it (whatever it is)
This is my life; I shall have no other
I really encourage you to care. To care about your life, to care about the world and all the living beings on it, to care about who you are.
I encourage you to find passions, to take risks, to aim high and work relentlessly for your dreams.
I know it might sound silly, but the fastest and most effective way of getting motivation, I personally find, is by watching Youtube videos.
This could be motivation for anything: from studying for an exam, to finishing a novel I’ve started writing. From telling the person I care about ‘I love you’ for the first time, to ordering a ticket and get on a plane.
Below are a few of my favourite videos for getting me motivated and full of energy towards achieving my dreams:
This is honestly the most incredible speech I’ve ever heard. I followed his 3 steps for a few months, and it changed my life, drastically, for the better.
“Why would you be realistic? What’s the point of being realistic?” is one of my favourite motivational quotes. I have this chalkboard in my room (painted in bright blue chalkboard paint) where I like to write these to remind myself everyday of what truly matters.
This one is a little different. It really blows my mind to discover more about the universe and how it works and therefore our place (as individuals) in it; really helps for putting things into perspective.
I love Prince EA’s videos. Every one of them is full of positivity and self-love, I always feel uplifted having watched one.
This one is fantastic for questioning society and how it all functions. It always reminds me of what actually counts in life on a grander scale and to not get worked up on details.
I hope many, if not all, of these videos can help to motivate and inspire you to work towards your dreams, and just to be more present in everyday life!
