the work which want to do interestingly is called passion. and the work which bores us often recognizes as the work which we are not meant for. the drive will increase after sometime of doing the present work attentively because doing the work attentively with intense focus allows us to travel the path of success be it kind of work. and increasing of success in present work , increases our interest on the present work and it will become our passion and we can own create our passions just like that if we are unsure about these things.

I will usually lay in bed or at least do something small. Like scribble on paper, it seems a little silly, but is relaxing.

Find out what you love to do that motivates you, that makes you an individual. Find what you believe in what strives you to achieve.

My passion and drive come from the things I know to be my innate truths, the things that I hold most dearly. So when I feel out of connection with my passion or drive, I practice patience with myself and reconnect with my foundational beliefs and values. When I've had a nice, restorative bath in those, I find that my passion and drive just naturally occur like a geyser from the hot springs. I find passion to be something emergent that I have to create the right conditions for, like creating a meadow for a cautious deer to graze in.

I let it go, I take a break, I try to isolate myself and do the things that make me happy ( just muy little hobbies), and I relax in peace. It helps me to collect some energy and give a new restart.

You look for things to motivate you. That thing you always wanted to buy? Let that be your motivation. The person who made you feel good that one day? Perfect. Look for motivation in small pleasures. Work for them.

- Watch motivational videos - Set goals and targets - Set challenges - Try to get into a relationship so you can have a drive of making the other significant happy and proud of you.

I would try to make friends and surround myself with happy and enthusiastic people who will motivate me

Doing things you have to do (like homework) even when you have no motivation, makes you continue to finish the task. I also like the "chunk your day" approach. Instead of saying you have to get ready for work, say, "All I have to do is get out of my bed. If I want to come back after, I can." Continue breaking up your routine piece by piece, getting done what you can.

That you are still searching for your passion. Most of the people don't know what their passion is. Its not scary not knowing actually, with time you will figure it out!

Just find something you like. You don't have to be passionate about it. A lot of people don't have a passion, something that drives you, including myself. So what you can do is, find something that you are interested in, something you like to do. That'll keep you going.

Explore and find something that can spark that passion or drive in you like a hobby or a volunteer activity.

Try sampling. Sampling is when you try one new activity out for a week and see if you like it. One week you may go running and realize its not for you. Next week you might do a cooking class and realize woah, i like this. Try new things out.

When I have no passion or drive I look to what I can do and who I can meet. How I can help other to contribute, even if I lack some skills.

The instinctive thing to do is sit at home and wait - which is counterproductive! Better to take a walk or read a book. I usually feel better after I get immersed in a good story or explore a part of town I have not yet gone through before. In the longer term, exploring different interests and activities can unexpectedly spark a new passion.

I take some time off. I gather my thoughts and reflect on what is important to me. I listen to good inspiring music. I found that really helps. Instead of being too hard on myself, I understand that sometimes it's okay to feel that way and for a while not think about anything at all.

Having no passion and drive is quite a challenging set of circumstances. There are a number of things that people do to increase self motivation. Some people journal, others sew, paint, bake. What are some of your hobbies and interests?

I try to find motivation in other aspects of my life such as turning to the love of my pets or enjoying the outdoors.

Everyone has some passion hidden. Try to explore yourself. Try to do things you have never done before. That will help you know your interest.

I try to dig deep within myself to find the passion and drive for things I love. Pushing yourself when you feel like you have no pushing in you makes you feel so good with yourself.

I unwind and chuckle, knowing that life should never be taken too seriously. I let my mind rest, watch something I enjoy and get back to work when my mind is ready for a round.

Find things that will motivate you to continue. Often helping others and giving back to the community can reward you in a way nothing else can.
