Although mornings are meant to be fresh beginnings; you are expected to start up your day with new enthusiasm and hopes, feeling completely refreshed and energized after a good night’s sleep, there are exceptions to everything in life.
There are some days in life when right before you are to begin your work, you feel like something inside is stopping you from doing so. You may sit quietly for a while and then try your best to keep yourself going. But then you realize that the passion you felt isn’t there. You may not be able to gather the least of motivation to do anything but escape. It may just be the weather sometimes, your inner noise or just a temporary mood swing…
You know that feeling, right? Everyone has moments in life when it seems like you are stuck; the harder you fight with it, the more it pulls you deep in. The times of feeling dis-motivated? lost? stuck? The times when you’re just not in the mood?
Have you been there? I guess we all have, at some point or the other! It’s a common yet dangerous feeling; dangerous to your growth, a threat to your goals in life. Remember, Time is running out. Time and Opportunities are two things that wait for none. If you have an opportunity knocking at your door, you just can’t let it go unheard, just because you aren’t in the MOOD. Can you?
But then, what to do in times like those? How to change your approach when you’re Not in the Mood?
Go through these wise words by Pearl S. Buck, which say:
I don’t wait for moods. You accomplish nothing if you do that. Your mind must know it has got to get down to work.
These wise words say all that you need to get your bit of motivation and keep going in life. Read them by heart to muster up all courage you need to keep walking towards your goals in life and to fill your heart with new hopes and passion. And to make the most out of every opportunity that knocks at your door.

A fantastic sentence written on every Japanese bus stop says: Only buses will stop here – Not your time. So, keep walking towards your goals in life.
It is often your determination and discipline that leads you to success. Your mind should be trained to do what you know needs to be done, even when you don’t feel like doing so.
Your life is defined by opportunities, even the ones you miss. Ensure that you define it in a good way!
