Can't Tell if Unmotivated or Immature...?

  1. Is motivation a way a person is born?

    I am super demotivated, but I am young; a freshman in college.
    I have always had much success in my life.

    Sometimes I get down on myself cause I feel immature. I want to work, but everything feels so pointless. I want a job where I can feel good about what I do, and I want to feel invested in something for once in my life.

    I just feel like I don't care about anything.
    I know you must succeed in college to have a better chance of being successful later in life, but life is not linear.

    I feel like no matter what I do, I will be a success. But I am lazy at the moment. This translates into me feeling like I am being immature.

    Anyone else feel the same way?

    Any older members want to give me some adult advice of their own?

    Thanks guys. :hello:
    I'm just a budding bud smoker with a fresh face and I want to learn about the world. : (
  2. ik how yu feel bc sometimes i have my days like that. But remember this as a man nothing is giving or handed to you. if you want to be something in life, you have to get it. expect no handouts from no one. chill and relax and enjoy life. it is more to this world than what yu living in. once you have life, you have a chance to experience something new as long as you want to.
  3. Sounds sooooooo much like me its a little creepy.

    I don't know what it is, immaturity or just no motivation. Because I do see myself as being mature and was always told I seem mature for my age, but now I kinda see myself as immature. As far as the job situation, I am right with you on that too. Finally filled out an application and calling them today though, so finally starting to improve.

    College right now just seems like a waste, even though I am going to need it in the long run, but I don't know what to do yet. Failing all 3 of my classes and don't see the point of going next semester, so going to work instead. Maybe something will hit me where I feel the need to get this stuff done, right now it just seems pointless.
  4. Hmm...

    I know what that feels like kinda. USed to not wanna do anything cause i felt I'd succeed anyway.

    Then i realized i'm not gonna have anything till I do what I gotta do (not saying your not) I know what I'd like to do. Just a matter of getting there.

    Seems like your still in that *looking for possible career* phase.

    Give it time.
  5. I just hate college. I'm getting good grades but it seriously demotivates me so much. I hate all my requirement classes - it has no relevance to my life whatsoever. I don't need any of these skills, and I sure as hell won't remember anything after the semester. I want to drop out but I'm just afraid of being called a failure and stupid by society. I'm in my final year of college, but it's gotten to a point where I wake up every morning, dreading class. I get anxious and I just feel like I have to literally drag myself there. The thing is I'm getting good grades, so I know I have a lot of intellectual ability, because these are classes I'm not even interested in.

    :/ Gets me really down. I work so hard I don't even have a life anymore. I just sit and wonder if it's all really worth a stupid piece of paper, just so I can say I have a degree. The world's richest entrepreneurs don't have a degree. So why can't any of us be a success without one? I feel like college is such a waste of time for me. I just need to pluck up the courage to drop out.

  6. It's kind of messed up how I can literally late with everything you wrote... everything...
