The 10 Top Ways To Be Unmotivated: The Myth of Being “Unmotivated”

Missing Your Motivation? Your lack of motivation isn’t unique

I’m amazed at how many people declare that motivation is all hype, and that it’s not necessary to read personal developmental or inspirational material.

The 10 Top Ways To Be Unmotivated: The Myth of Being “Unmotivated”

So why don’t we take a reverse look at the motivational world for just a minute by adding the two letters ‘u’ and ‘n’ to the front of the ‘m’ word, and just for a cheeky moment I want to unveil the resultant human life that is unmotivated.

Here are the ten top ways to be unmotivated…

  1. Don’t Condition Your Mind

Let your mind wander wherever you want. Make no plans. Forget about lists. Don’t think. Just blob out. And whatever you do, don’t read motivational books and definitely not this blog.

  1. Don’t Condition Your Body

Sit in front of the TV and chill big time. Exercise? What’s that? Relax. No exertion. It’s not good for your heart.

  1. Associate With Negative People

Hang out with gossips. Thrive on the latest – ‘Did you hear what she said?’ Make the end of the world, the global financial crisis, the latest earthquake, flood, and cyclone the centre of your conversation. Make your habit to tune into the 6 o’clock news.

  1. Be Inflexible

Whatever you do – don’t change. Don’t change the clothes you wear. Don’t change the food you eat. Don’t change your habits. Don’t even change your mind. And whatever you do don’t be open to any advice given to you by someone who is more successful than yourself.

  1. Act With No Purpose At All

Wake up each day without a plan in place. Meander. Wander. Live for yourself. Don’t get involved in any cause that could help others. What’s the purpose anyway? Oh and don’t you dare write down your goals.

  1. Take No Responsibility For Your Own Results

If something goes wrong blame others. Do what you like, when you like, how you like, with whomever you like. Who’s keeping score anyway?

  1. Don’t Stretch Beyond Your Limits

Stretch? That sounds like hard work. Remain comfortable within your comfort zone. Don’t ever do more than you’re asked to do, and never try something that you haven’t tried before. Keep close. Stay tight. No risk.

  1. Forever Wait For Perfection – Do It Tomorrow

Put off to tomorrow what you can do today. Get around to it once you get it perfectly perfect. Anyway, what’s the rush? Unless it is absolutely perfect there is no way that you’re going to start on that project. Everything has to be just right before starting.

  1. Eat Anything

And eat more. Drink gallons. And whatever you do choose the yummiest, the fastest, the fattest, and the greasiest meals on the menu. Dieting is for skinny people.

  1. Hang Around Unmotivated People

Hang is the key word here. Because that’s what unmotivated people do. Their conversations are a bit like this – ‘What do you want to do?’ ‘I don’t know. What do you want to do?’ ‘I don’t know. What do you want to do?’ ‘You know. I really don’t know.’

Tongue in cheek I know, and a little naughty, but can you add any more ways to be unmotivated to my top 10 list?
