It is common for people to experience a lack of motivation occasionally. Most of us will experience this feeling at some point in our lives. A lack of motivation indicates the need to relax, recharge, and rethink how you're distributing your energy. Given our goal-oriented society, I believe many people struggle with motivation because they are exhausted from constantly striving to do anything and everything all of the time.
If you're lacking inspiration, the good news is that there are a few tricks you can try to get back on track. One excellent way to keep your spirits high is to read a self-help motivational book-
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is a fascinating story about an inspiring journey of self-discovery. This classic novel, which has sold millions of copies worldwide, combines mysticism and wisdom. This story follows the journey of a young shepherd boy who wants to travel the world searching for treasure but ends up discovering a very different type of treasure than he expected. Overall, this book encourages us to listen to our hearts, recognise unique opportunities that life presents to us, and pursue our passions.

Mark Manson tells us in this self-help book to cut it out and stop trying to be positive all the time so that we can figure out what we need to do to become better and happier people truly.

Mark investigates our relationships with money, entertainment, and the internet that indicate that having too many of these good things can be destructive.
