Struggling with motivation can be a hard thing to recognize and even harder to overcome. Lacking motivation can affect your life in many ways: it can put a strain on your relationships, cause your work to suffer, increase stress, among other things. There are a few different things that could be the cause of your lack of motivation like depression, feeling stuck or stunted, etc.

In this article, I am going to share a few signs you can watch for to determine if you have a lack of motivation and why you may be feeling that struggle.

It can be hard to recognize that you have a problem with motivation and even harder to admit it and work to improve it. The following are common signs that motivation is a problem for you.

If you find yourself never wanting to even do something to further or better yourself, you might be struggling with motivation.
