Finding Motivation When You're Just Not Feeling It

4 Ways to Find Motivation As a DJ, When You’re Just Not Feeling It

We have all experience those times that we simply did not feel motivated. Even those of us with passions closest to our heart,  can feel stuck.  Assuming you have your goal in mind, with a plan set up and you’re just feeling unmotivated and uninspired today… here are a few tricks to get you back on track.

how to motivate yourself

1. Self Encouragement

What story do you tell yourself? Do you believe in yourself and feel you are worthy? Having the right mindset is the difference between someone that will accomplish their goals vs. the person that has a million excuses as to why they wont. Why? Because your thoughts, become the actions that become your habits. If you tell yourself you’re not good enough, you wont take the necessary risks to get yourself ahead. It starts with the story in your mind. Even if you don’t believe it now, eventually you will. Start telling yourself a NEW story, today!

Did you know a positive mindset helps you to think more creatively?

2. Listen To People That Motivate You

Even those of us with a positive mindset can have moments when we question ourselves. This is when we must reach out to those that motivate us. That might not necessarily be people we know personally.  It could be watching Jim Carey’s speech at the M.U.M. Reading other artists success story interviews of how they came to be and what they overcame to get there.

3. Gain More Knowledge

Congratulations, you’re already on your way. To be armed with knowledge is like giving your body healthy food and exercise. It rewards your body and brain.  It may be watching the Ask Gary Vee show on how to successfully run your business, reading books on marketing or taking a production class. Suddenly we get these boosts of energy and excitement to try out the knowledge we’ve recently gained.

4. jump right into it

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve dreaded going to the gym but 10 minutes into it, I was feeling amazing. Sometimes all we need is to simply STOP putting it off. To just dive right into our projects. Often you’ll find it actually motivates you to do more! Surprisingly it’s just as difficult to stop working, as it is to start.

But Kilma, I can’t…

Whatever you believe good or bad, will be. Nothing I say here today can change the way you feel about yourself. Only YOU can change the way you feel. I can’t make you do a darn thing, I can encourage you to, but at the end of the day you have the power. You just need to decided if you’ll use it to follow your passion or if you’ll use it to create a self-fulling prophecy.
