#JustDoIt: A short rant about motivation


Why are people surprised when you do the things you say you want to do? I just don’t get it.


In university, I said I wanted to do two specific streams to gain the most applicable knowledge I could – so I did. My sister said she wanted to be a lawyer after watching legally blonde in junior high – so #SheDidThat. #Kobe said he was going to be the best – and he was, RIP. I don’t think either of us sat down and thought ‘hmm, what is going to push me to reach these goals I set out for myself’. We never second guessed our abilities to do it, we simply wrote it down on a checklist and worked to check it off.


This probably isn’t what you guys thought you were getting into. I am not trying to brag; I’m just tired of getting the same questions over and over. “Where do you find the time, what motivates you to keep going, how are you doing so much” Like, I don’t know – I enjoy everything I do. Is that so foreign to you? Are we all out here doing things we hate every day? I’m confused.




This is how I see it: If you like something, you’ll want to do it. If you don’t like it, but it’s necessary to do then #JustDoIt. If you don’t like it and it’s not necessary, then don’t do it!!

If it’s sticking to a new habit and you lack the will to accomplish/sustain it this is how I see those situations:


Have you ever thought you wanted to do something so bad? To eat better? Do more cardio? Read more? But you failed, repeatedly? Remember that feeling? Yeah that feeling of utter disgust. That feeling makes me sick to even think about, and it should do the same for you.

Am I being rude? Or are you just triggered ‘cause you know I’m right.



Either way, if you really want it then #JustDoIt. Get your priorities straight, put the work in and have fun doing it. But what do I know, I’m only 23..
