      Tell me about motivation

      Not dream motivation, but daily motivation.

      I'm a senior high school student, almost 16 and in the last three years that I need to complete to a standard for university entrance. I have ability in computing, mathematics, physics, and drama. Just a couple of days ago the school sent my parents a letter saying how I am on track to receive an Endorsement (might not mean much to students in a foreign curriculum but it basically means I'm achieving at the highest level possible) My parents know I can do well, and want me to do well. The same goes for my teachers. However, I simply lack motivation.

      Between 11-15 I was lazy, overweight and a general procrastinator. All the way up until then in school it was pretty similar, every parent-teacher interview I was told that I had ability, I just had to work at it. Over the past year it seems I've turned over a new leaf, my dad keeps pointing out my maturity (usually pointed out when my younger brothers aren't being very mature) so hopefully that's all behind me.

      I have two goals, career related. They're not so much goals, as options. I have the ability to either become a programmer, or a teacher of physics and maths at secondary school. Both high paying jobs (which in my country is a great thing) that I'd have to (and could) go to university for. I understand what I need to do, I could do either one. I just don't have the motivation.

      So, if you've made it this far, here's the short story. I'm doing well, have plenty of opportunity to get far in life, but I don't feel motivated. If anyone could shed light, that'd be great. Also, as depressing as this story sounds, I don't think depression is a problem. I have friends, family that love me and I live in an upper middle class lifestyle. So don't think this is all a sad story, I just need some help with motivation

      write out a list of goals. and hang it up where you can see it every day. putting your goals on paper helps keep you on track of what you are working towards..

      Motivation is a bitch.

      for me it is anyways. I get super motivated while I'm already occupied with something, then once I'm done with that the motivation goes away.

      Now I just don't do anything, that way I don't have to worry about losing motivation.
