I CAN AND I WILL: How to stay motivated

This is for those who love being creative. This is for those who are stumped for ideas for a school project. This is for those who are finding it hard to stay true to themselves and sticking to a personal goal. This is a post for anyone who’s ever found it difficult to find inspiration when they need it most, and let’s face it – we’ve all been in that situation.

So if you’re feeling bummed out in the motivation department, here are a few little tips that will keep you motivated and to ‘wow’ the people around you.


1. Let your friends inspire you
Look around and realize that you’ve surrounded yourself with amazing peeps. Your best buddies will become your favorite motivation – just be with them and enjoy life. You’ll see.

2. Make a mood board
Not only do mood boards look incredibly artistic and chic, but they inspire you to get shit done! Your mood board is your mood board, so go crazy. Gather cut outs from magazines, print things from the net, write notes on paint color cards or if you like things digital, try making a Pinterest (Warning: You may get addicted).

3. Let the lyrics speak
It’s happened to the best of us. You know, when we hear a lyric of a song and think ‘Oh my god, this song is my jam.’ That’s what songs are supposed to do, so whether you’re a ‘IDGAF’ fan of M.I.A or a slow jam fan of Regina Spektor, listen to songs that keep you going.

4. Have the right mindset
Stop telling yourself that you can’t do things, because I’m here to officially tell you that you can do whatever the f*** you want! Instead of avoiding whatever you need to do and making up excuses, tell yourself that you actually want to and push yourself to do more! šŸ‘Š
