... Nothing.

Motivation is something that I struggle with almost daily. The truth is that I'm fairly happy with my minimum-wage pseudo-shut-in bachelor existence. I'm not the ambitious type. I have no desire to prove my worth against other people, though I do hate to lose: the most attractive option for me, therefore, is not to compete. Money doesn't much matter to me. If I can pay my bills and afford to feed myself, I'm dandy. I don't have any particularly expensive hobbies to throw my funds at, nor do I smoke, drink or gamble, so I'm not funneling my money into that sort of thing either. If I had money, it would rot in my savings account. Social motivations don't do it for me. I have plenty of friends, and I don't think I could even handle having any more than I already do. Finding love is low on my priorities list. I've been there once, and had a great time, but in the end, couldn't keep up with how demanding it was on my time and attention. I hate having responsibilities and see them as limitations on my personal time. There's nothing or nobody that I even really feel very negatively about, let alone want to bring down enough to drive me to action. And while I do occasionally get inspired by fiction, it's always fleeting, and I can never make good on any resolutions I make to myself to go get something done.

I want to better myself. I sometimes look at how life would be if I had a job I liked more, or lost some weight, or went back to school, or actually got serious about one of my creative projects, and of course, it's better. But even though I want to do these things, I want to avoid expending the time to work towards them even more. I resent any interference from the outside world in my personal time: spending time on self-improvement doesn't usually affect me directly; it only affects how other people perceive me. Too often, the only thing it does for me is limit my all-important free time. As time goes on, I realize more and more that I'd be happy just keeping things the way they are, and honestly, it kind of scares me. It's like my dreams are dying right before my eyes.

I think I need life counseling or something. I'm stuck in a rut, and I can see that I am, but I can't make myself try to climb out.

Food.

Give me food and I'll do anything.

The things I want... Keeping a list of things I want helps me stay motivated. It's kind of a reward system where I buy myself things for accomplishing certain tasks. If I want something really bad, then I work extra hard to have it. I don't like being handed stuff so I always have to rely on myself to get the things I want.
