Belle please come back!

Today was the day I was finally told. Its more upsetting now .. Coz I was lied to for four months. What is the point of not telling me at the start. Covering lies n making more lies. I knew there was something not right.

Belle .. I’ve been asking for u every time. I miss you baby.

If the only person who texted told us that a old woman had took her.

God, please hope she is in good hands. If I see u belle I will save u ..

Just know that I’m thinking about u belle

Staying motivated is a struggle; our drive is constantly assaulted by negative thoughts and anxiety about the future. You must know how to motivate yourself and be able to keep your spirit high no matter how discouraging a situation is. What separates the highly successful is the ability to keep moving forward. There is no simple solution for a lack of motivation. Even after beating it, the problem reappears at the first glance of failure. The key is understanding your thoughts and how they drive your emotions. By learning how to nurture motivating thoughts, neutralize negative ones, and focus on the task at hand, you can learn how to self-motivate yourself.
Realize & Understand that Life’s What You Make of It 
It may seem sometimes that your life is controlled by the circumstances around you and you are no way in control. This is partly true. We cannot control the events around us but we can certainly control how we react and this is what differentiates success from failure. It’s not that highly motivated and successful people are always coming across favorable circumstances; not at all. They are simply in control of how they react. They decide what their life is going to be no matter what happens. This is the mindset that you have to develop for yourself in order to self motivate yourself.
Boost Your Confidence 
The first motivation killer is a lack of confidence. When this happens to me, it’s usually because I’m focusing entirely on what I want and neglecting what I already have. When you only think about what you want, your mind creates explanations for why you aren’t getting it. This creates negative thoughts. Past failures, bad breaks, and personal weaknesses dominate your mind. You become jealous of your competitors and start making excuses for why you can’t succeed. In this state, you tend to make a bad impression, assume the worst about others, and lose self confidence.
The way to get out of this thought pattern is to focus on gratitude. Set aside time to focus on everything positive in your life. Make a mental list of your strengths, past successes, and current advantages. We tend to take our strengths for granted and dwell on our failures. By making an effort to feel grateful, you’ll realize how competent and successful you already are. This will rejuvenate your confidence and get you motivated to build on your current success.
It might sound strange that repeating things you already know can improve your mindset, but it’s amazingly effective. The mind distorts reality to confirm what it wants to believe. The more negatively you think, the more examples your mind will discover to confirm that belief. When you truly believe that you deserve success, your mind will generate ways to achieve it. The best way to bring success to yourself is to genuinely desire to create value for the rest of the world.
Develop Tangible Focus 
How often do you focus on what you don’t want, rather than on a concrete goal? We normally think in terms of fear. I’m afraid of being poor. I’m afraid no one will respect me. I’m afraid of being alone. The problem with this type of thinking is that fear alone isn’t actionable. Instead of doing something about our fear, it feeds on itself and drains our motivation.
If you’re caught up in fear based thinking, the first step is focusing that energy on a well defined goal. By defining a goal, you automatically define a set of actions. If you have a fear of poverty, create a plan to increase your income. It could be going back to school, obtaining a higher paying job, or developing a profitable website. The key is moving from an intangible desire to concrete, measurable steps.
By focusing your mind on a positive goal instead of an ambiguous fear, you put your brain to work. It instantly begins devising a plan for success. Instead of worrying about the future you start to do something about it. This is the first step in motivating yourself to take action. When know what you want, you become motivated to take action.
Find Direction 
If focus means having an ultimate goal, direction is having a day-to-day strategy to achieve it. A lack of direction kills motivation because without an obvious next action we succumb to procrastination.
Identify the activities that lead to success. For every goal, there are activities that pay off and those that don’t. Keeping track of your most important tasks will direct your energy towards success. Without a constant reminder, it’s easy to waste entire days on filler activities like reading RSS feeds, email, and random web surfing.
When my motivation starts to wane, I regain direction by creating a plan that contains two positive actions. The first one should be a small task you’ve been meaning to do, while the second should be a long-term goal. I immediately do the smaller task. This creates positive momentum. After that I take the first step towards achieving the long-term goal. Doing this periodically is great for getting out of a slump, creating positive reinforcement, and getting long-term plans moving.
It’s inevitable that you’ll encounter periods of low energy, bad luck, and even the occasional failure. If you don’t discipline your mind, these minor speed bumps can turn into mental monsters. By being on guard against the top 3 motivation killers you can preserve your motivation and propel yourself to success.
Start Proactively Caring for Your Family 
Look at your parents; did they raise you so that you could give up so easily? Look at your younger siblings; did you know they look up to you? Do you really have the luxury to feel demotivated? You have to excel, if not for you, then for those who care for you and love you.
Strive for Your Desires
To be truly motivated, you need to have hunger and not just desire. Having mere desire won’t take you through difficult times since you don’t want things badly enough. How can you have hunger? Your cause & goals play a big role here. If you have a cause you care about and a goal related to it, you should have the hunger inside of you. If you think that you are losing hunger, all you need to do is to connect again to your cause and goal. Let them inspire you and bring the hunger back.
Run Your Own Race 
Comparing yourself with others is an effective way to demotivate yourself. Even if you start with enthusiasm, you will soon lose your energy when you compare yourself with others. Don’t let that happen to you. You have your own race so how other people perform is irrelevant. The only competitor you have is yourself. The only one you need to beat is you. Have you become the best you can be?
Let Go of the Past 
Believe it or not, one of the best demotivators is your past. Your past can drag you down before you realize it. Your past can give you a heavy burden on your shoulders.
The good news is it’s a burden you don’t have to carry. Take it off your shoulder and leave it. You might make mistakes in the past. You might disappoint others with what you did. But it’s over. It’s already in the past and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Today is a new day and you have the chance to start again. No matter how bad your past might be, you still have a bright future ahead waiting for you. Don’t let the burden of the past stop you. “Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could.”
Stay Positive
See your life in the positive sense. Everyday is the first day of the rest of your life so everyday is a new beginning. As long as you are alive your life is full of opportunities. Sometimes the brighter side of life is just around the corner, we miss it by an inch. Every breath is a blessing simply because you’re alive. “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present.”
Persevere
When you meet obstacles along the way, there could be the tendency to quit. You may think that it’s too difficult to move on. You may think that your dream is impossible to achieve. But this is where you can see the difference between winners and losers. Though both of them face the same difficulties, there is one thing that makes the winners different: the courage to continue. In difficult situations, just focus on taking one more step forward. Don’t think about how to complete the race. Don’t think about how many more obstacles are waiting for you. Just focus on taking the next step.
If you follow the right plan and procedure, you are sure to succeed. But, there may be times when things can go wrong. Never lose hope. Keep on trying. Find out what’s wrong but don’t quit. “If you have a dream, you gotta protect it. When people can’t do something themselves, they wanna tell you that you can’t do it. If you want something, go get it.”
