What Ngoc says on what to do when not feeling motivated,

And the best thing to do when u don't feel like doing it is to think "what bad things will happen if I don't do it now." It's gonna take longer to reach my goal. I'm gonna feel like shit because i cant even do this simple thing. i feel like im going nowhere and that ihave no purpose in life. The people around me are doing better then me. Etc think of all the negative things that will happen if u don't do it. Then think of why you really want to do it & really visualize yourself when you finally finish ur goal. I get a better life, and i get a better future. And then pick which picture u would rather be in  the future.

That's what I've been doing recently haha

Wise Words from Ngoc About Working Hard

To keep me motivated , I just think how good of a life I would get once I get there!

Always find out what u need to do, and do it.

The faster you do it, the faster u get to ur goal.

Time is so valuable, do not waste it!

When u stop being motivated, u give others a chance to surpass u.

So whatever ur goal is, keep motivated, keep doing the steps to get there everyday, and stay ahead of your competition

So whatever ur goal is, keep motivated, keep doing the steps to get there everyday, and stay ahead of your competition

U have 24 hours in a day. If u use it wisely, you can surpass someone that has been doing something that took them years to achieve in a short amount of time.

Try to focus on your goals as much as you can, & limit other distracting activities that keep u away from meeting ur goal

That's what I do

And that's prob why I move and grow a little faster than other people that's starting or have been doing it but not consistently

You're a fast learner so I know u have potential to go far in a short amount of time! Just choose something and stay dedicated to it!!

Originally Rachelle's status expressing her frustration about certain blocks occurring in her mind,

Rachelle: Damn it. I'm feeling so blocked.

I took some pictures of the smoothie I made this morning so that I could post the picture with the recipe for my go-to smoothie on my blog. ... That's something semi-productive and contributes in some small way, right?

It's just... when it comes to the idea of actually writing up such a blog post, it feels so damn forced. I'm resistant towards the idea of writing it up. Why??? Also... it's just freaking smoothie recipe. The world needs more than recipes or smoothies or green juices or kale chips.

I have a lot of ideas I want to discuss and share... but again, I feel pretty blocked when it comes to actually writing. I feel as though I need to figure out a bunch of stuff in my life first before I can make any significant progress... but siultaneously, in another sense, that type of thinking exemplifies how I am giving my power away to circumstances that are outside myself (yet also inside myself, too - if that makes any sense).

Virginia: I feel like this when I do my personal programming projects, it's actually very common for me. That's why for this three-day weekend, I focused my time on just sitting down and /writing code/. I didn't worry too much about how far I'd get, or if what I wrote would be productive. Instead, I just took one task that I wanted to work on and powered through it. One task completed lead to another, and before I knew it, I got a lot of progress done without letting my mind get in the way. 

My suggestion is to cast aside your brain blocks and just write. Don't worry about if what you're writing is productive or if the world needs it - just keep doing it. You'll find that the process of writing (or in my case, writing code) will help you figure out the things in your life that were holding you back - and that those things are much smaller and don't actually hold the power that you think they do.
