Everyone struggles to stay motivated, especially the youth of this generation.
I think we can all agree that our biggest challenges often include staying focused, pushing away laziness, fear, and self-doubt; all the while trying to stay mentally afloat with everything else going on.
It’s kind of funny how this generation has been labeled as quitters; which I think is an unfair generalization.
We are the generation of innovation, technology, and creativity.
So why do all of us struggle with the same issue?
It’s basic human psychology, we often let ourselves get in the way of completing tasks, starting up something new… or as Vincent Cassel put it “the only person standing in your way is you.”
I personally have struggled with getting myself motivated to even start any ventures or ideas I come up with. They all eventually end up in the “someday when I have the time” box and are never actually looked at again.
But then I see these amazing young people who are working on their own clothing brand, or expanding their talents in music, art, photography, and so much more; which actually inspires me to start to take my own ventures seriously.
We all have motivations and inspirations that spark a sense of determination, that give us the will power to push through the laziness, hate, fear, and self-doubt.

Granted, I still haven’t opened the “someday when I have the time” box cause I don’t even have an excuse anymore, but don’t take me as an example.
Pushing through with everything going around us right now is difficult, we all face mental and creative blocks, at least I know I definitely have, but that doesn’t mean we can’t give ourselves the tools to get out and surpass it.
I believe that with willpower, organization, and prioritizing, you can do anything. Obviously we can’t miraculously wake up and have all of these in check, oh how I wished it worked like that, but you can only start by taking things one step at a time; and with that you’ll find yourself working on things you’ve only imagined doing.
So stop making excuses, stop saying you’re not good enough, stop doubting yourself. Start planning and start doing.
You. Got. This.
