Motivation is fundamental in any professional field. The problem usually occurs when the motivation begins to fade inconspicuously. The loss of motivation is most often affected by various negative factors that affect us inside and out. Motivation is easy to talk about. The practice tends to be more complicated.
It doesn’t matter what field you work in or what you do. About the advantages and disadvantages, or excuses, why something doesn’t work. we could talk for long hours.
It is quite normal that good and bad things happen to us during the days. However, this is not a reason to give up.
One sentence came to my mind when writing this article. I don’t remember who said her anymore. She sounded like this. “Success comes, you just have to stop dealing with negative things and falls and direct your efforts and energy to achieve the goal.”
Read the following 7 tips on how not to lose motivation, even if you think it can’t get any worse.

1.) Remind yourself of what you like most about your job.
We often have our heads full of worries, problems, deadlines and the last thing we think about is the motivation why we do it all. That is logical. In this situation, it is good to stop for a second. There are two basic types of motivation. External and internal.
If you are motivated by the external type, you are looking for motivation in external consequences such as money or praise.
If you follow internal motivation, your motivation is reflected in the joy of the task. Richard Griggs, a professor of psychology, says, “The inner pleasure of the task gives us ample reason for such behavior.”
2.) Find your reason “why”.
Motivation is the desire to prove something. It is part of the path that leads to success. Jonathan Fields writes: “It’s about getting closer to the goal you want. If you feel demotivated, helpless, go back to the beginning of the journey and see where you have moved in that time. Was it easy? Hardly! Raise your head and find your inner motivation again to move on.
3.) Specify short-term and long-term goals.
What is the question at the interview, without which you cannot imagine the interview? “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” What would you answer? And what are you willing to do to get where you dream?
Achieving short-term goals will help you achieve your long-term goal. Short-term goals allow you to see immediate improvement and a shift in a relatively short period of time. This situation also causes our motivation to gradually increase. Therefore, you do not want everything now. Some steps simply cannot be skipped.
4.) Learn to accept rejections.
Instead of treating rejection as something negative, accept and accept the fact that rejection is part of the life of each of us. Of course, I’m talking about the normal level of rejection. If you start to encounter only a negative attitude in your life, it is time to think about whether everything is in order and look for causes.
5.) Consider potential opportunities and pitfalls.
Research shows that successful people are focused on success, not the possibility that they will fail or fail. Successfully motivated people seek satisfaction in successfully managing difficult tasks.
On the other hand, people who are more focused on failure avoid difficult tasks. Why maybe? You guessed it. For fear of failure.
That’s not very inspiring, is it? Everyone who wants to succeed must take into account the ratio of opportunity vs. risk.
Go for a walk. Clear your head and make room for new inspirations. Do you feel frustrated and disgusted? Leave the 4 walls of the office, enjoy the fresh air and a short walk. See what happens 🙂
Have a clean table, wash, pour coffee or tea. Don’t be afraid of criticism. It is she who moves us forward. Therefore, keep asking for feedback at all times.
Do you remember the times when you tried to write A perfectly written in a notebook? It also didn’t happen right away. Well, you didn’t give up. Remember all the challenges you faced as a child. You didn’t give up then. So why should you give it up now? 🙂
