MJ’s Answer

Generally, motivation stems from something we lack rather than something we have. For example, as long as we have money and can buy what we want or need, there is no motivation to make more money. But the minute we have no money and need to buy something, we are motivated to do something to make money.
That being said, what is it you lack or what is it you WILL lack if you don't do something? Will you lack good health if you don't exercise or eat right? Will you lack a roof over your head if you don't work? Will you lack self-esteem if you don't care about your appearance?
Figure out what it is you want in life and what you can't do without. Imagine your life without these things that you want and need. Imagine your life with them. Decide if it's worth it to do what it takes to have them or if life is better without it and you're happier doing nothing about it.
REALLY think about it.
THEN TAKE THAT FIRST STEP. The next step will be easier. And the next and the next and so on.
There! You just motivated yourself!
Now pat yourself on the back and enjoy your life!

Surya’s Answer

Hey Hannah,

To get motivated, you need to deal with your fear. Start by naming your fears so that they’re out in the open. Then question your fears- “Why am I afraid of that happening?” “What are the chances that would really happen?” Some of your fears will slip away now. Look at the fears that are left. Finally, consider breaking down the changes into smaller steps and focusing on just the next few small steps–this will calm your fears and help you gain confidence and that directly makes you. I wish nothing but success, good luck!

Figure out your "why". There is a great Ted Talk by Simon Sinek (https://www.ted.com/talks/simon_sinek_how_great_leaders_inspire_action?language=en#t-296657) that talks about how if you figure out your why, you can be a more inspiring leader. You can leverage this personally. If you figure out your why, you will have more motivation as well.
