As time goes on, we often become stagnant in our motivation. We are constantly trying to find new ways to keep motivated but everything is extremely overwhelming.
But sometimes it just takes one or two small changes to accomplish a complete 180.
Take a read through some of these ways you can add new perspective and give yourself a kick-start to a better life!
1. Complaining can make you complacent.
Sure, complaining makes us feel better in the moment. But does it change anything? Or will you let it stay the same and complain about it again next week? Try this: when you're complaining, think about WHY you're upset and ask yourself "what can I do to fix this?" At least if you try and identify the problem, you're working towards fixing it!
2. Social Media is not for validation.
Going on Facebook or Twitter can be detrimental to your mental health. Remember: people post the best aspects of their lives for a reason. Comparing your mundane Wednesday night to someone's rare Saturday night out is not in your best interest. Ask yourself: would I rather be where I am, or where there are? If you find yourself truly thinking you'd like to go out, then make those plans!

3. Don't be jealous about love.
If you're still searching for your special someone in life, that doesn't mean you should hate everyone else who has already found theirs. Being jealous about someone else's relationship gets you nowhere. Think to yourself: why should these people not be happy in love just because I'm not? Why do I feel no one else can be in love if I haven't found my person yet?
4. Live for now.
Everyone says it, but you need to do it. You are where you are. If you want that to change, do something to change it. If not, well then enjoy what you have. Ask yourself: how lucky am I to be where I am now?
5. Don't let envy kill your passion.
Just because someone else accomplishes something before you doesn't mean you can't still do it. If you're trying to lose weight and your friend is losing fast than you...who cares? If you love playing music but you think someone else is better than you...so what? One person's success does not equal another person's failure. You are not racing. You are not competing. You are living for yourself.
