Need Some Motivation Right Now? Read This IMMEDIATELY

If you’re in desperate need of some motivation, we’re going to fix that problem, right here, right now.

Prepare yourself.

WARNING: I’m going to swear and yell a little in this post.

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

You said you needed motivation. I’m going to do what needs to be done to get your ass in gear. NO EXCUSES.

If this isn’t the kind of motivation you need, leave now. You’ve been warned.

Alright.

Here goes.

Do you want some motherfucking motivation right now?

I SAID, do you want some MOTHERFUCKING MOTIVATION RIGHT NOW?

Do you want to get some seriously useful shit done today?

Do you want to get off your ass and start producing instead of wallowing in despair, depression, self pity, fear, doubt or whatever is holding you back?

Are you sick of not getting anything done?

Let’s DO THIS.

The point of this exercise is to give you motivation to do something right now. Don’t just absorb this and continue sitting around procrastinating.

TAKE ACTION.

Follow the steps below carefully.

1. Quit bitching about how tired you are.

The world doesn’t care.

And if you’re feeling depressed or down, stop feeling sorry for yourself while you’re at it. It doesn’t matter.

We all face obstacles. How you deal with those obstacles defines who you are and determines how successful you are in life.

Did you catch that? It was the secret to life. Seriously.

Let me say it again.

We all face obstacles. How you deal with those obstacles defines who you are and determines how successful you are in life.

Period. End of story.

2. Read the quotes below. If you have a favorite quote or two you always refer to, read that too.

Some people die at 25 and aren’t buried until 75. – Benjamin Franklin

Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you’re alive, it isn’t. – Richard Bach

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. – Steve Jobs

3. If the motivation you need is to work on building your own business, watch this video.

I don’t care if you’ve seen it before. Watch it again.

Be warned, if you’re not working towards being self employed, this video might push you in that direction.

4. Put a pot of coffee on or get some tea brewing.

Try a bulletproof coffee if you need an extra kick.

5. If you haven’t eaten something, eat a little snack now.

For god’s sake don’t eat a fucking twinkie or some other junk food.

Eat something healthy. Eat some nuts or fruit. Take your vitamins.

6. Do one of the following three things:

A) Take a shower, OR

B) Go for a brisk walk, OR

C) Call the friend who most lifts you up and makes you feel great after every conversation. Tell him or her that you need a little pep talk. Put a 10 minute limit on the conversation.

7. If you’re around people right now, go tell one of them how much you appreciate him or her.

Just say, “hey, I wanted to tell you that I appreciate you because…”

If you’re not around people, think about something or someone you’re grateful for. Go over the reasons you’re grateful in your mind.

Gratitude is happiness. Happiness is motivating. Be grateful more often by thinking about who and what you’re happy for, or by telling someone.

8. If you normally sit down to work, stand up.

Standing up to work is motivating. It gets the blood flowing.

9. Turn off email, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and whatever other social procrastination network you’re part of.

Turn off the TV if it’s on.

Seriously, TURN THEM OFF.

10. Now, put on your favorite music playlist.

Play something that gets you jacked.

Hint: try the playlist you use at the gym.

(If you don’t regularly go to the gym or workout otherwise, start doing that tomorrow. You have to be healthy to stay motivated.)

11. List the top 3 positive outcomes of achieving your task.

Think about what you’re planning to accomplish today.

Don’t worry about everything that’s holding you back from accomplishing it. Instead, focus on the positive things that will happen once you get it done.

For example, if you have homework to do, your list might look like this:

1) I’ll learn something useful.
2) I’ll make myself and my teacher proud of what I accomplished.
3) I’ll get closer to achieving a good grade in the class so I can graduate and move on to doing what I’m really meant to do in life.

Write down the three things. Don’t skip this part. Make sure you focus on the 3 most important outcomes.

12. Think about the part of doing this task that you enjoy.

Most tasks have some enjoyable component to them.

Focus on what you like about what you have to do, no matter how simple or how small. Enjoy the very act of doing your task for what it’s worth.

13. Listen to this podcast episode

We’ve just recorded an episode of our podcast about THIS VERY ISSUE.

How To Stay Motivated (The Fizzle Show #10) »

14. Now here’s the most important part.

Lock yourself in a room with the thing you need to be doing.

Don’t leave until you make some progress.

Put pen to paper, fingers to keyboard, or axe to the grindstone.

Stop looking for external motivation. Stop letting yourself procrastinate.

Start going through the motions of making progress. At first it might feel forced, but eventually you’ll get in the groove.

What to do if this doesn’t work.

We all have things to do that we really just don’t want to do, but have to for some reason. These are the toughest to find motivation for.

For these especially difficult situations, I recommend two things.

First, question whether or not this thing really needs to be done.

What are the consequences of not doing it? Can you live with the consequences? Is there any way to not do this thing?

Then, if you still conclude that this thing absolutely has to get done, focus on simply getting past it.

Imagine the relief of not having this thing on your plate anymore.

How will that make you feel?

Dig deep. See how quickly you can possibly do this thing.

Do it now and move on to stuff you really want to do.

The Top 10 Mistakes in Online Business

Every week we talk with entrepreneurs. We talk about what’s working and what isn’t. We talk about successes and failures. We spend time with complete newbies, seasoned veterans, and everything in between.

One topic that comes up over and over again with both groups is mistakes made in starting businesses. Newbies love to learn about mistakes so they can avoid them. Veterans love to talk about what they wish they had known when starting out.

These conversations have been fascinating, so we compiled a list of the 10 mistakes we hear most often into a nifty lil' guide. Get the 10 Most Common Mistakes in Starting an Online Business here »

    I absolutely mother-fucking LOVE this post.

    BHAM!

    Gonna share it with my entire network, NOW.

    Thanks, man.

    C

    • Corbett

      Boom! Thanks C!

  • Corbett, I’m grateful for YOU because your motivation has motivated ME. Thanks for helping pave a way to a better path for many people.

    Good work.

    • Agreed Tony!

      Corbett, just found this post 11 months after publication, and you got me pumped today :)

      I’m usually not a fan of motivational material, but I can tell you truly wrote this from the heart, and that makes all the difference in the world…

  • You’ve got to love this one! No time for a long, drawn out comment. I’ve got shit to do!

  • Kris

    Wow, very very powerful. And very very true. Thanks, you made my day!

  • Everette

    I think I am going to read this every morning now.

  • Maja (sounds like “hiya”)

    Brilliant post!! Love it!

    Your final part particularly attracts my attention as I am personally passionate about deeging really deep to uncover ALL the roots of obstacles holding me back and then work dilligently on removing them…… for ever :-)

    So, in addition to your good advice, here are a couple of things I’d do if I needed to motivate myself to do something that has to be done but I REALLY didn’t enjoy doing it:

    I would block the time in my diary that I will need to finish the task at least a week in advance. This way I would prepare myself psychologically for it e.g. use the week to TRULY and DEEPLY accept it’s ok to hate it with passion, that it’s ok to realy not enjoy it while doing it, that it’s ok to feel and act in the most unpleasant way while doing it (unless it’s customer facing of course) etc. You get the picture…basically, to me it’s about giving myself permission to be honest even if it’d be “frowned upon” – in this case miserable and pissed off with an joyless task at hand . This somehow manages to take the edge of my dislike and turns the activity into a humorous one. And things get done :-)

    In addition to the above, I sit down, remember and write down examples of a few similar times when I completed things I disliked and was satisfied with the result. This I look at daily during the week of psyching myself up for the task.

    This second method also serves another purpose: it reminds me that I can do things I ‘hate’ and that such a skill will come useful many a times again. So, it’s about building a toughness that will serve me well on my way to building my dream.

    And last but not least, I also use many NLP techniques (working with my submodalities) to reduce the effects my demotivating states have on me – and they work a charm! :-)

    Thanks for the great post Corbett!

    I’m now done with this particular procrastination :-) and am off to do some proper work :-)

  • Wicked good advice!

  • Bunny

    i knew you could Motivate, But never thought you would come after with a baseball Bat :) i better go an do some stuff !

  • The best reach-through-the-screen-kick-ass coaching I’ve seen in a very long time!

  • YESSSSSS!!!! This is EXACTLY what I’ve been trying to tell people. Stop crying and create what you want!! I will be sharing this post with others. Thanks, Corbett.

  • The hardest part is just starting. Once you’re underway with a task/project, it’s so much easier to get back into the swing.

    No.6 (b) & No. 10 in combination always does the trick for me. If the weather is poor, then simply blasting some pumping music and jumping around the room for a few minutes does wonders.

  • Damn, as always, just what I needed to hear at the right time as I put off getting things done yet another day. Thanks again Corbett. :)

  • THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
    As usual, you are reading my mind (and millions of others)! Thanks for the virtual kick in the ass!

    • Corbett

      The pleasure is mine!

  • “Do it now and move on to stuff you really want to do.” Great anti-procrastination advice, because procrastination is rooted in the thought that we don’t really want to do what it is.

    If you frame it as a way to move on to something else, that’s a big help. I’m sharing this with everyone I can.

  • Great stuff Corbett, it definitely grabs you by the lapels and moves you forward. In fact, I didn’t want to leave a comment – I just wanted to get onto my next task. (But I had to let you know how powerful this was and thank you! :)

    • Corbett

      In that case, I’ll accept this comment because it’s short :) Thanks Nathalie, I hope you get hundreds of awesome things done today.

  • Good of done without the swearing but the rest was over the top. I did have to give myself a pep talk this morning. I hate self-whining.

  • Hey Corbett,

    I don’t even swear in Spanish but this was fucking EPIC bro.

    The video got my juices flowing too and I just hope everyone that whines can take a look at this and think about it before doing it again.

    Definitely “Start A Blog That Matters” material, THANK YOU!

  • Jen

    This post is AMAZING. I love Gary Vaynerchuk – I attribute leaving my job to his book Crush It (for better or worse). Watching him on video is insane- he is one jacked up man. Is that just coffee he’s on?? Either way, I love him and you rock for posting this. Everyone should read it. Well done.

  • Exactly what I needed today. I think I’ll bookmark this. I’ve been working hard and hardly seeing any results…and it’s easy to get discouraged. But I keep hearing people say to persist and just keep creating “epic shit” and eventually things will start to happen. I’ve been at this about 4 months and I have devoted HOURS and HOURS to my site and to learning as much as I can…and some days it seems really hard to justify.

    This post really helped…and I love the video…that guy is on fire!

    Thank-you!
    Jenn

    • Corbett

      It does get easier, and it is all worth it, BUT you will question whether you should keep going dozens of times before you make it.

      Remember, it’s always darkest before the dawn.

  • Andrew Rowley

    Corbett dude, I seriously appreciate every single fucking post you have put up here. In the past few weeks I have been having some doubts since I started doing something that is somewhat foreign territory to me and this post and video tore me apart, opened me up, slapped the hell out of me, closed me up and kicked me into the streets of my mind and I’m insanely motivated.

    All I can say is thanks for being awesome and a serious fucking motivator. If you’re ever roaming NYC and I’m out I’d be more than happy to buy you a beer for the words dude!

    • Corbett

      Haha, perfect, that’s exactly what I was trying to do. And by that I mean I was trying to get SOMEONE here to offer to buy me a beer in a cool place like NYC. We’ll be there this summer and I’d gladly take you up on that offer.

  • Mate, great post, just what I needed for a rainy shitty Tuesday at work….

  • Thanks for the kick in the pants. You used almost as much profanity as all my favorite workout songs.

    #10 is my go-remedy for the slump. I use the same playlist that got me from being a couch potato to a half-marathon runner to get my juices flowing for a work project.

    When the music goes on, my mind is ready to GO, Motherfucker!

    • Corbett

      Damn, I’d like to get ahold of that playlist Betsy. Sounds pretty kick-ass!

  • kingsley

    That’s being point blank! Thanks for another useful tip.

  • This is absolutely one of the best articles about motivation ever. Hands down.

    Everyone I know must read this! Thanks so much for sharing.

  • Hmm I have to respectfully disagree – if you want to procrastinate complete steps 1-12, if you want to actually get shit done skip to step #13. That’s my experience. I guess it wouldn’t make for a very exciting blog post though! ;)

    • Corbett

      Haha, I guess that’s why you get such a ridiculous amount of work done Laura. Well played :)

  • Great advice!!!! We all need to read this every morning!

  • Seriously read this at the exact right time. I fucking love when that happens. Thanks, Corbett!

    • Corbett

      I love when that happens too :) I hope you rocked it with all that new motivation Jamie.

  • Awesome! Consider it shared, after I have done my work and logged back into my social network sites ;)

  • FUCK YES! I LOVE THIS KIND OF MOTIVATION! it’s time to ROCK ON!!!! I would like to share something that it’s a little bit weird in the beginning but when you look it in the right angle you learn to love it

  • Gary Vee is the man motivating me the most lately. He is the BOMB and has made hustle the word of the year for us!!

    You’re following in his footsteps Corbett. Kick ass post.

  • ummmmmmmm MOTIVATED!!!!!

  • Hell yeah !!!! awesome article is awesome…… Right Now..I’M AT MY BEST .!!!
    thanks man !!!!!

  • Awesome kick in the butt. Thanks Drill Sargeant!! Gonna cut and paste this above my desk! Glad you got in #6. Stepping away from the computer is important too, and easy to forget when you’re just telling yourself to GET MOTIVATED. And okay, I guess I’ll actually turn them the fuck OFF (instead of just minimizing the social network/email window – which doesn’t really work.)

    PS: Have you really tried that crazy coffee drink??!

    • Corbett

      Yeah, I’ve tried the bulletproof coffee a couple of times. It’s definitely energizing!

  • Superb timing! Don’t need the music I’m jacked just reading this. :) Thanks Corbett

  • Ouch, my butt hurts!

    Thanks for the Muther Effin Shut Yo Mouth Post! I’m still up at 2 in the morning working (coding) my craft.

  • Great advice and delivery in the post. Kudos Corbett.

  • God bless you, man, for this unbelievable post. WOW, I feel so fuc…ing motivated!… Action! Action! Action!

  • I was already feeling ultra-motivated, but I read this anyway just because I like getting punched in the face with awesomeness :-P

  • Awesome Motivation!!!

    I’m going to go get off my ass and make a product now.

  • Thanks Corbett, that ROCKED! I read the post, watched the video, knocked out a chapter of your Start a Blog that Matters course, and came back again for another motivational kickstart!

    • Corbett

      Thanks so much Doug! Come back any time you need another kick.

  • Tanzin

    I’ve just written a part of the first chapter of my report/ebook after reading your post. To start doing something is the hardest part of the task. Thanks, man! :)

    • Corbett

      Fantastic!

  • This reminds me of how my high school soccer coach used to pump us up to crush the competition! You were just a lot more eloquent…

    Combining this kind of intensity with the advice you’ve laid out in “How to Start a Blog that Matters” (which I just signed up for) means I will be unstoppable.

    • Corbett

      That’s the sprit!

  • Awesome shit man! Had some nuts, now I’m going to smash that video series right now

    Thanks man

  • Here are some hacks I use to motivate myself:

    I set the alarm in my phone to ring with a song that motivates me and that is loud enough to wake me up, I change this every week so my body doesn’t learn to ignore it (usually from Disturbed)

    I jump out of bed and do some jumping while singing the song so I will not go back to bed

    I drink water from a bottle I leave in my room while reading some instructions for the day in my mirror
    http://www.thebravemanblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/2011-11-09_08-05-12_623.jpg

    Then I read my goals that I have in my chalk board:
    http://www.thebravemanblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/2011-11-09_08-05-30_726.jpg

    I work out

    I do breakfast while letting my body to cool down

    then I get prepared to get to work and take off while listening to music that motivates me to set the pace of the day

    When I’m feeling weak and want to fail I remember myself how it felt when I failed previous challenges because I gave up and how I felt when I achieve something great and remind me that I don’t want to feel that failure again in my life (something we did in boxing training)

    I support it with music that motivates me (I always carry my headphones with me)

    At night I take 30 min to disconnect with everything and I meditate to remember the things that I have to do the next day, but most importantly, the attitude that I have to keep during the day and when doing the challenges, how do I have to react when feeling weak and what do I have to do in difficult moments (much like shadow boxing)

    I hope this can help somebody :D

  • Corbett I really need this right now. Thank you so much. I have been boxing with problems and worries lately. This is definitely a good article to push me back to the working phase. I did most of the activity you listed. Matter of fact, I am listening to my favorite playlist right now. And I’m standing while writing this down. Thanks for the words of inspiration.

    God Bless!

  • When I’m feeling lazy I remind myself of my favourite quote – which I always write in the front of my diary:

    I personally use the Pomodoro technique and it helps me get started. I also find automation helps get rid of the procrastination a fair bit. I create a lot of content (and that sure needs a lot motivation) but I have found using voice recognition tools make it a lot easier/faster than having to type it all up manually.

  • Epic. Love this post.

  • I got to about point 7 and am waiting for the espresso machine to warm up for my shot. I gues down weeks are not the best time to give up the one coffee a day habit. I love coffee smell and the luxury of the little ritual. I have never (!!) given my e-mail to a sign up list THAT fast. I had barely opened your page. But today is one of those days and your opening line somehow got me. I arrived via a google search ‘feeling alive’ .. In case you wonder. OK. espresso and then some action. This miserable week (ok it’s a month) needs a drop kick…. THANK YOU. I have a feeling you’ll be my new best imaginary friend!

  • Awesome!
    Loved this- just bloody do it! That’s the answer.

  • karen

    Awesome post. I study a myriad of resources for helping myself and others get unstuck & motivated etc. Your post rocks. Love it. Thank you.

  • Thanks Corbett
    I really needed that.
    The 2 things I loved the most were:

    1.The quote: “We all face obstacles. How you deal with those obstacles defines who you are and determines how successful you are in life.”
    It’s well known and I think it’s true. It’s so clever in its simplicity. And it’s a good reminder as we’re often forgetting that everyone’s facing the same obstacles

    3.Gary’s video.
    That guy is an energy bomb and he always gets to motivate me. I’ve read both his books and his first one, “Crash it!” was a true motivator for me.

    I’m adding your post to my secret motivational arsenal…

    And so I stumble in to this page at the break point of the term, when the stress and tiredness and the almost impossible urge to whine is floating in the air of my studio. Quite motivating, actually. It makes me feel sorry for the fucking crying, I know you don’t give a fuck, and I don’t give a fuck that you don’t. So, I’ll get back to work. Thank you.

  • It is straight to the point………..I like to play music when I work too. It motivates me and gets me in the mood to get more done.

  • Hey, I must say that this is something really motivating. I am myself a blogger who writes on making yourself for better and happy life. I have never read a post with such enthusiasm. The way you “shouted”, was brilliant, it gives a blow to me. Although I would suggest you to create a podcast or an audio file on this topic. It would really get 100% of the effect.

    It made me to write another post on motivation and developing interest in ourselves. Language is rough, but I guess that is essence of this post. I wrote to developing positive attitude if you may wanna check at http://better-being.blogspot.in/2012/11/want-to-be-tension-free-lets-be-positive.html
    The matter, although, is not as motivating as yours.

    Keep writing! :)

  • Loving this post so much that after reading it quite a few times myself, I decided I just needed to share the looooove! Good Monday morning kick up the… for me. For everyone. Thanks Mr Barr!

  • This post reminds me of a ted talk by a woman (I can’t remember her name) who talks about the amount of energy needed to get up in the morning, out of a warm bed into a cold, dark room. She called it “activation energy” and it was a powerful analogy to what is required to getting any kind of thing done. I think this post helps push people out of that warm bed. Great work!

    Okay I will:
    When you have something to be done, most of the times you think “I’ll just do it later”
    Change that, when this pops up think instead “I’ll just do it now” and go about it.
    After a few days it will be programmed into your brains. ;)

  • I LOVE this Post!
    Especially;
    “Quit bitching about how tired you are.

    The world doesn’t care.

    And if you’re feeling depressed or down, stop feeling sorry for yourself while you’re at it. It doesn’t matter.

    We all face obstacles. How you deal with those obstacles defines who you are and determines how successful you are in life.

    Did you catch that? It was the secret to life. Seriously.

    Let me say it again.

    We all face obstacles. How you deal with those obstacles defines who you are and determines how successful you are in life.

    Period. End of story.”

    When I’m really having a pity party I tell myself that no matter how bad I think my life is, billions of people would think they won the lottery to have my life, petty problems and all.

  • Jason

    I’m 28 years old, married with a child on the way. I have a great wife, family and friends. I’m self employed for a couple of years now in my profession of eight years. My income is probably slightly below the wage of an average person. For years – as long as I can remember – I’ve never had any REAL desire. Any REAL ambition. School never meant much to me. I never aimed for A grades; I was happy with C grades. I was always more interested in doing stuff that I didn’t need to do. My employed life has been the same. I do just enough to get by and pay the bills, and that’s it. But up until recently, something has changed.

    For the past few months I’ve been experiencing something strange. It’s like a burning desire inside my chest to become someone, I mean REALLY someone. And it just won’t go away. As a matter of fact, it’s growing. It’s like I need to put that old person behind me, surround myself with the greatest, most inspirational people this world has ever seen and heard and be like them. And it makes me want much more than what I have right now.

    In my new-found quest to succeed, I need constant reminders of where I want to be. I struggle with procrastination – no doubt the major factor as to why I’ve had this ‘close enough is good enough’ attitude for all these years – which is how I came across this post. Thank you for the words of motivation. You have inspired me to push myself one more rung up the ladder towards my goal of wealth, recognition, or whatever it is I’m looking for.

    I will be somebody. It may not be tomorrow. It may not be in my current profession. But MARK MY WORDS: one day people will know my name, and I will become an inspiration to others as others have been to me. Here I come.

    • Today is your someday, Jason! Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off your goal. So stay focused and strong. Sending you positive vibes.

    • “Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off your goal.” – I love this :D

    totally useless. says nothing new. I’m waaaaay past any of those points. I need to get shit done right now. I can’t live with the consequences, but I absolutely loathe what I have to do and no matter how necessary I know it is I can’t bring myself to do it. How come no one on the internet understands this.

    • noname

      I know this feeling.. when you’re so sick of or unconfident about the task that you feel actual revulsion and it kicks in after only a few seconds of trying to work on it.

      Only thing that works for me is to break the task into TINY pieces and find something fun that I really want to do, that can also be broken into tiny pieces. Every tiny goal accomplished in the task (add one slide to my talk, write a single paragraph of this document, whatever) I get to do a tiny bit of the fun thing (5 moves in this turn based game, one page of what I was reading, etc).

      It’s a bit extreme but it gets you past the initial psychological hump because you know you’ll only be working on it for the next minute or so. And then once you’ve got properly started and can see the shape of the solution, the task usually seems less horrible.

    • Aspen Wolf

      I had this feeling to but other people cant help with your problems you have to help yourself practice means better so if you I mean you practice on doing something you have to do then you will be successful in life.

    • Benecya Jackson

      I’ve been working on the to do list for the last 4- 5 years of my life. I feel you. I have to grasp for any small glimmer of value to posts like this though because I desperately need to make moves. But the problem is I just can’t be bothered. I find every excuse not to do it, create fake problems where there are none to lose myself in the solution rather than just biting the bullet. I feel like I’m unequipped to deal with mundane every day obligations simply because I know they’re required of me. I’m so lazy its exhausting. Why should I do all of these things if I could just not do them and still be in about the same position as before! Why haven’t I done them already and been in a better place a log time ago? I often wonder, “is this really the shit successful people did to get that way or am I gonna be a martyr? Pass”

    • Rebecca Lescarbeau

      I understand what your saying, and half the time I can’t get motivated no matter what and the other half I do get motivated, its like I need someone to come over and make me do it then I get so into it and get shit done, I do understand and it’s very hard to do and some don’t know how it feels or how bad it stinks to be like that so they just run their mouths and criticize people like you or I.

    Dear friends online, my name is Ibolo, I have to give this miraculous testimony, which is so unbelievable until now. I had a problem with my Ex husband 2years ago, which lead to our break up. when he broke up with me, i was not my self again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine (Angela) told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem too his name is Dr Ogbe.So i emailed him theangelsofsolution@outlook.com the spell caster and i told him my problem and i did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happening my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me in just 2days and was so happy to have him back to me. We have two kids together and we are happy with ourselves. Thanks to Dr Ogbe for saving my relationship and for also saving others own too. continue your good work, If you are interested to contact him and testify this blessings like me. If you are going through hard life and you need help in problems such as:

    (1) If you want your ex back
    (2) if you always have bad dreams.
    (3) You want to be promoted in your office.
    (4) If you want a child.
    (5) Herbal care
    (6) You want to be rich.
    (7) You want to tie your husband/wife to be yours forever.
    (8) If you need financial assistance.
    (9) Let people obey your words and do your wish

This is just a bunch of poorly written shit that was scavenged from the bowels of the Internet by people who dont know what the fuck theyre talking about, and cobbled together for page clicks.

    What a worthless crock of shit.

    My favorite is “quit bitching about how tired you are”. This is an excuse that I come across over and over from readers who come to my website. “It’s too much work, it’s boring, I’m exhausted from day job”. Well, unless you want to be exhausted forever, start working NOW to get away from that lifestyle ASAP! Excellent article!

    LOVE COMPATIBILITY TEST: TOP SIGNS YOU HAVE A SOUL CONNECTION

    Astrology is a wonderful thing, is it not? The gifts from the universe that include the planets and the zodiac signs and all of the beautiful qualities and themes of the constellations in the sky are miracles in themselves. And if you ask me, if the gifts of the universe were left at *just that*, I’d still be one happy girl. But the universe is, well, the universe, and all of the gifts that it has to offer are as big as it gets. It is physically impossible for any one person or being to know what each and every one of those gifts is, that’s the beauty of its mystery as well. But once in a while we discover an element of the universe that reveals one of those little secrets. And that’s exactly what I am going to talk about today. This is a secret from the universe that has little to do with star signs or planets and horoscope compatibility because it is an element that is left entirely up to….destiny. That’s why, every time I say, if you are feeling like you are “failing” any of our horoscope compatibility checks based on your star sign alone, fret not because destiny has something great in store for you that goes…even beyond the stars. And that my friends is the destiny of love compatibility that you created for yourself eons and eons ago. I know it is something many of you wonder about, and I know this because I answer your questions on this very topic every single day. The topic of soul connections. Of course, every individual’s path is unique and individual, so I don’t have ALL of the answers to every single secret that each and every single one of you hold. But I do know some tips that can help you answer your own questions. Questions like, should I stay or should I go, is she my soul connection, and when am I going to meet Him. Many of you have heard me answer, sounds like you have “all the symptoms”. What do I mean by that? This is the love compatibility test we are going to explore in depth, today. Are you ready? Let’s get to it.The Definition of a Soul Connection

    As I have previously discussed, there are many different words and terms for soul connections. Here is a general stream of consciousness on this very topic on how soul connections are formed, to help you determine the differences between these terms for the purpose of this discussion alone. I do need to tell you there are MANY streams of consciousness on the origin and meaning of soul connections, and we at Astrology Answers respect them all. This particular one is one that experts such as astrologer and psychic Silvia Browne and psychic Edgar Cayce subscribe to. A lot of people believe in these tenets and it is these tenets on which I am basing today’s discussion on soul connections.

    The origin of soul mates goes back to the beginning of time. At the beginning of time when it was your turn to create your karmic path and your karmic destiny, you chose a Cabinet of people to do so with. That was your first task. With those people you created the blueprint of your destiny that would basically map out exactly what was going to happen to you from lifetime to lifetime. You find those details written on your birth chart or astrological chart. The people you planned that with were your soul connections. Also included in this Cabinet are the legions of angels you have chosen to take this journey with you. Psychics like Sylvia Brown have been quoted as saying the approximate number of angels around you from lifetime to lifetime varies between 60 and 80. So if you think your same sex best friend is a soul connection that you met 7 lifetimes ago, you are probably right. People don’t just put that in their head for nothing. But this is a soul connection, someone that is in that wide circle of your initial Cabinet. Every soul in that circle is a soul connection.

    The next term we define out of that circle are soul mates. These are romantic connections that you preplanned, and romantic connections only. This is where the streams of consciousness begin to diverge and create separate theories, one of them including an entirely separate romantic connection known as the twin flame. For the purpose of THIS discussion, I am going to stop where the different theories diverge, and use the terms soul mates and twin flame interchangeably. So this answers two more of your questions. Can I have more than one soul connection? Absolutely. Can I have more than one romantic soul mate? My answer is no, when we are using the terms soul mate and twin flame interchangeably, and here’s why.

    The soul mate and twin flame experience occurred at this origin of time, when you were mapping out your destiny. Your own individual soul split into two, one a masculine energy and one a feminine energy. Those two souls became whole individual souls, but they are “mirror” or “twin” energies. That’s why you can’t have more than one twin flame or soul mate connection. You may have other soul connections in your life right now if you are very lucky. But you might not. So this is why you hear people saying, he is the yin to my yang, or she completes me. Meeting a twin flame or soul mate is literally like meeting the male or female half of you. And it is not gender or heterosexual specific, it is about energy patterns. I know a specific twin flame experience where the woman is the masculine energy and the male brings the feminine energy and they are beautiful together.

    So I know there are often confusions about these terms, I did want to clarify that. So this article can also be called, signs you have a twin flame, signs you have a soul mate, and the like. The wide circle of soul connections is as Oprah would say, a whole other show. So let’s get down to the brass tax of it all!Top Signs You Have a Soul Mate

    Romantic connection. You are attracted to each other, you can’t keep your hands off each other, even when you are apart. This answers the question for those of you asking, “I have been best friends with this guy for years but cant stand the thought of kissing him, but also can’t shake he’s a soul connection.” Yes he would be a soul connection but not a soul mate, or twin flame. The passion between the two of you is karmic, tantric, and unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. If you need to ask yourself if it is hot enough, it’s not. The word twin flame has heat in the term itself.

    Instant knowing. From the second you meet them you feel like you’ve known each other for lifetimes. People spend their entire lives being bitter bananas in love, until the universe sends them their twin flame. “I now believe in love at first sight” are things you will hear when someone meets their twin flame. It doesn’t happen often, which is why when it happens, it literally knocks you off your feet. I know of a girl that was going on her 40th blind date in a row and told her friend, “If he doesn’t speak of Plato before the entrees are served I am never dating anyone ever again”. Her girlfriend laughed and told her to lower her expectations. You can imagine her surprise then when her date asked her over appetizers if her spiritual path included any tenets from Plato’s form and function theory. This instant knowing is not something you can plan or create. Remember, it’s pre-destined.

    Telepathic connection. Soul mates and twin flames have a very similar unconscious, they are identical in fact but for the exception of the masculine and feminine energies. So when they hurt, you feel it. This is what stops you from lighting into them when you are angry, because you will literally feel their pain. But when they rejoice you also feel it, and this is what makes the connection so awesome. So if you find yourself literally feeling something your partner is going through, it’s a good sign of a twin flame connection. You know what they are thinking before they say it out loud. It’s often “Easy Silence” between you two because you are already in each other’s heads, whether you realize it or not. This is a bitter sweet one for those that are excited about this one. You don’t always want to be in their head either, for reasons already mentioned. Everything they feel, you feel, and vice versa.

    Dreams. Someone will start appearing in your dreams, to announce their arrival, to indicate their current presence. This is a very common pathway of communication for twin flames and soul mates.

    Synchronicities. Synchronicities are meaningful coincidences, a term coined by psychologist Carl Jung. The Plato example I mentioned above is a good example of a synchronicity. An event that happens that makes you go, “What are the chances that would happen on a first date?” Those are synchronicities. I always joke with my friends when they ask about those events happening, “Your angels are playing tricks on you, yes it means something, they are trying to tell you something, pay attention.” When a lot of synchronicities happen about one person, and seem to happen more and more often the closer you get, your angels are offering you peace that this is the one. Other signs are 11:11, a very common message from the angels that you are in twin flame energy.

    Frequent Breakups or Frequent Distance. Yep, I said it. If you are breaking up and coming back to each other a LOT, it might be a twin flame union. Or, if you are separated by distance that is the same thing. If you find you keep going back and forth with each other or distance is keeping you separated right now, it’s a very good sign of a twin flame union. There’s a reason being together isn’t working for you guys, and until you pass those tests, things are going to stay this way. Look for the patterns, your angels are trying to point you towards the test you need to learn here. What can YOU change to break those pattern or cose those distance gaps? Remember that both of you have different lessons, so your patterns are the only thing you can clean up. Once you both commit to those clean ups, the breakups become less frequent. And never worry if your twin flame will or will not come back to you. It is predestined, so the answer will always be yes, IF it is a soul mate or twin flame union.

    Situational Awareness. This is the military term for the actual occurrence that happens when you physically feel your soul mate when they are not around. As I said there are frequent breakups and distance, and this sign is very important. There will be more times than not when your twin is not around, so this symptom is the one sign that will give you hope and keep you going during those times. It feels like having your back to the door and feeling someone enter the room, but nobody’s there. If you have ever felt like that, you are not going crazy. Your twin is probably thinking of you, reading some of your messages, or planning something with you. Often times you will get a call or a message from them shortly after experiencing this. Yes it’s weird, but if you are feeling it, don’t negate it. It is one of the bittersweet blessings of the union because of course it makes you miss them even more. When it happens, recognize it and honor it and send gratitude for it, and these experiences will crop up even more. And as creepy as it can feel, the silver lining is you get to know exactly when your twin is missing you too.

    Mirror Lessons. Most of the time both twins have the very same lessons in life. So for example if you are guilty and insecure and have problems with the truth, your twin does as well. So if it seems like you both are dealing with the same garbage issues over, and over, and over again, that’s why. You may learn them together you may learn them apart, but you both will need to learn them until the final stage of your union and purpose completes. So if you’re too shy to call him, and the type to get mad if he doesn’t call you, guess what he’s probably upset about? He’s shy too and too shy to call because you haven’t given him enough green lights to do it. As I said, you will be telepathic with each other and through the journey together will become in sync with these issues as you go along.

    Unconditional Love. This is not just a, I love you, to your boyfriend at appropriate times kind of love. This is a love that jumps in front of a bus for a person you just met that brought up Plato at dinner. You don’t know why, but you would rather die than hurt that person, and you will run after anybody who does as well. It is unconditional. This person could actually be the most toxic person in your life right now if they are in a different stage of their journey, but you won’t hurt them. At any cost.

    Push and Pull. This is the bittersweet agony slash bliss of the soul mate and twin flame connection. One minute you are throwing dishes at them telling them you are finally done, the next you are having the most intense makeup sex you’ve ever had and you’ve forgotten every mean thing you just spent hours saying to each other. Or, when you are apart, you wake up one morning and send them a message lighting into them for being so inconsiderate, but are calling them an hour later to apologize for your more psychotic moments of missing them. Psychics and astrologers refer to this as the “push and pull effect” and something we look for when asked about soul mates and soul connections. Intense to say the least.

    And there you have it folks. A love compatibility check from the perspective of the soul connection. I know you still have questions so, bring them on. This time when you are telling me about your romantic connection, don’t tell me your star signs alone. I want to help you understand your love compatibility from the soul perspective for this exercise, and want you to focus on your feelings alone. I also need to add a word of caution if this exercise leaves you with more questions than answers. Maybe you didn’t check anything off this love compatibility test at all. Maybe you’re freaking out and thinking you’re not with The One you think you need to be with, and that you are wasting your time because The One is “on its way”. Shake those thoughts out of your head right now. If you are in a romantic experience and it is full with love and you are happy, this is a blessing many reading this would give their left arm for. Keep it, cherish it, nourish it, you are being asked to continue fueling unconditional love through this specific relationship. Maybe you are with your soul connection and I just haven’t listed any “symptoms” that apply to you. And maybe you are not. It’s not the worst thing in the world to be in love and in happy and it not be a soul connection. As we have learned, those connections can be extremely painful. The one thing you can guarantee for sure is that no matter WHAT your soul connection destiny is for you in this lifetime, it is destined. Meaning, no matter what your experience is right now, it is going to happen. You chose that long ago. So sometimes when those things aren’t happening in our lives right now, our test is to appreciate the lesson that IS in our life path right now and make the most of those tests and challenges. And that my friends, is how lessons turn into blessin’s.

    Thanks to the second quote by Richard Bach, I have now acquired the secret to immortality — laziness. Either that or in a twisted dark way he’s saying “As your final reward for all your hard work and completing all your missions in life, the universe has decided to give you a prize. Death.” Reading this article is silly for me, because truth be told, right now I can’t imagine any activity or turn of fate actually changing my life in a truly positive way. So if I can’t even improve my own life by my own efforts in my own imagination, than how the heck could I do it in reality? I guess if you can’t escape the Hell inside your head, you can’t find Heaven on Earth. Funny that I have the motivation to whine here. You might wonder why I would waste time on this instead of doing what I came here to find the motivation to do and I know why. It’s because this comment is literally more rewarding than anything else I can do right now. This might seem downright sad, but it’s true, because why else would I waste a half hour typing and rewriting this thing? I could draw, I could write, I could try and solve the most advanced mathematical problems in the known world, but all of it would be more lonely and ultimately more fruitless and futile than a petty online comment… one that might not even make it past moderation. I now feel satisfied with it, however, so now I will be rewarded by clicking that delightful little post button, a cheap reward for a cheap effort. The laziness of the internet saves the night once again.

  • cmac99

    Iam 35 and suddenly diagnosed with severe anxiety and taking meds blah blah. All of my drive is diminished, all I ever did was go go go and now I sweat in my sleep worrying about everything constantly. I hate what has happened. It’s like a switch got flipped. Now it’s prayers and patience. I feel alone, sucks

  • CHB Giggles

    I’m going to suck it up and get the things done that I have to do to get back in school. If I bust my ass, I can still get in for short session classes! I’m going to force myself to get up early and get some exercise in. I’m going to put forth extra effort in my job and in practice for our band. I can do this!

  • duranieplus

    My engine search was: “I need help finding a document right now, what is the best way to think about it.” After skimming through 7 links related to suicide, html, project managements, and other techie stuff I read “Need Some Motivation Right Now? Read This IMMEDIATELY”
    I am so glad I did. It made me laugh and I FOUND THE DOCUMENT within minutes of reading this.
    Muchas gracias. This is still kicking patooty years later.

  • Thank you. I needed this. I’ve been having a lot of problems with motivation lately and will be referring back to this again.The video was great. Stop watching f-ing Lost! I love it. What did this help me achieve? I’m a food blogger and needed to make a butternut squash recipe and take pictures of it. It’s sounds so dumb but I had been avoiding it for days and just didn’t want to do it. No, not the butternut squash! Ok I see this sounds ridiculous, haha. But it’s done finally!

  • I really like this, took less than a few minutes and it charged me up. thanks. rock on…
