Are you feeling miserable, bored, tired, or just negative? WELL STOP IT AND GET MOTIVATED! WHAT DO YOU WISH TO DO? WRITE A STORY? CONQUER THE WORLD? Well you’ll need some motivation first.
1) Get off your butt and off of your laptop.
Most negativity can come from being unproductive, so get off your social networks AFTER YOU READ THIS OF COURSE!
2) Go and Exercise.
You heard me. Go for a walk, a run, dance around your house like you just don’t care (it’s really fun, trust me.), turn on some music while you do it, run around the house, play with your pets, (but if they don’t like it I suggest you don’t play with them. I don’t want any of y’all to die by playing with your pet. ) AND IF YOU HAVE ANOTHER IDEA FOR EXERCISE THAN DO IT! DON’T FORGET TO STRETCH!
3) Listen to Newsies.
People do not understand. Newsies…is the most motivational piece of Broadway/Disney Music out there. I swear I feel like a better person every time I listen to it. I just want to SEIZE THE DAY AND BECOME A NEWSBOY FOR A LIVING YOU KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING?
Anyway and if you have no clue what Newsies is, watch the movie with Christian Bale from 1996 and you will fall in love with the cheesy dances, motivational songs, etc. Then go listen to the Broadway soundtrack which is 1111111000000% better than the movie and then you’ll be so motivated that you’ll cry.
4) STOP WITH ALL OF THAT NEGATIVITY.
- Stop it.
- Just stop. STOPPPP
- Okay, now if you’re not motivated I want you to clear your mind of all negativity.
- Better? I hope so.
5) Find your inspiration.
Who/What inspires you? Find that whether its a person, your dog, a writing prompt, etc.
Then use that inspiration to help you get even more motivated!
6) Remember: It’s okay to fail.
This is something I’ve been struggling to get through my head, I’m an actor (in training of course) who is always afraid of failure. My coaches, and my new Teacher have told me this over and over “IT’S. OKAY. TO FAIL. IN FACT IT’S AWESOME BECAUSE THAT WAY YOU CAN LEARN FROM FAILURE TO DO EVEN BETTER THAN YOU COULD HAVE DONE IF YOU SUCCEEDED THE FIRST TIME.” so Never beat yourself up because you failed.
7) If you’re to the point of tears, cry. Let it out. LET IT GOOOO LET IT GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
or if you’re experiencing other emotions. Take it out on the grass. Beat the grass up if you will. The grass doesn’t have feelings. (but the ants do. Then….you should probably run before they attack)
8) Remember that you’re awesome if you try your best. Okay?
9) EXERCISE SOME MORE BABY DO IT WOOOO
no seriously exercise makes you happy.
10) Look up your role model’s success stories and see how they made it, once they failed or succeeded.
Here’s some: (They’re not my role models, just commonly known people)
Marilyn Monroe was told to just become a secretary instead of an actress, now she’s on of the most remembered actresses of all time.
Walt Disney’s ideas were rejected for being childish.
Stephanie Meyer wrote 4 yucky books, so if she can get those published I’m sure you can get your novel/series published.
J.K. Rowling (THE FABULOUS ROWLING) was rejected by so many publishers because Harry Potter was considered a ‘Children’s book” and they thought that it wouldn’t make a whole lot of money and HECK YES IT DID.
And there a whole lot more stories.
