Figure Out Who You Are

Self-awareness is extremely beneficial to start to change your life.

There's no way to change your life in a meaningful way if you don't know what you want to change about yourself in the first place.

The simplest way to get out of a stuck mindset is to do something, anything.

Action is the biggest Motivation. Stop procrastinating and start engaging with the world.
Stop Trying so Hard
Trying too hard to make friends or being cool has the opposite, repelling effect.
Just be grateful for what you have, and enjoy simple things.
Focus On Habits, Not Goals

It's ok to have goals, but obsessing over them is often counterproductive because, in reality, achieving a goal isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be.

Create a system of healthy habits for the most important parts of your life.

No One Really Cares

Few people actually care about you. Because you’re not as special as you think and also, most people are too concerned with themselves.

Use this piece of knowledge to liberate yourself and do what you want.

Recognize that everything you do has a cost decide if you're willing to pay it. Freebies and shortcuts do not work in the long run.

Ask yourself not what you want, but what you're willing to suffer for.

The second implies that to go to the gym, you must completely reinvent yourself. And that raises the emotional stakes massively.

Motivation affects your work

No matter how passionate you are about your work, you will run into aspects of your career that you are not fond of.

Our overall experience is dictated by our mindset and approach we take. If we come to work feeling drained, we will not feel motivated to do our job. If you can figure out what motivates you, you can become a happier, more productive worker.
