How to Find Motivation When You Are Down

We all have bad days, we all get frustrated, we all get stressed out, it happens to all of us! It’s how we react and rebound from all of this that separates us. Some people will rebound great and move on, some people have a harder time breaking out of it.

One of the best things to do, if you are stressed out and working away at something Рstart out by taking a break. Go for a walk, get out of the house if you can, do whatever you can to get away from the problem and just take a break. Try not to think about it, just clear your head. Once your head is clear, come back to the problem and figure out how to deal with it.

Hopefully you have goals and very clearly defined goals. Go look back at your previous accomplishments and look at your goals, look at what you have accomplished so far and look at where you want to be, this should help give you motivation to continue.

Read up on success stories of others, this should help remind you that what you are experiencing is just a little bump in the road, stay the course and you should have good rewards in the future.

Hopefully you are networking with others in the same industry. This is a great time to talk to others in the same industry with challenges you face. Be professional, don’t complain, just try to handle this like a small challenge on your path. Chances are others have struggled before and may have some good advice that might help.

Research of what famous successful people have been through and how they handle challenges, some people I personally like to read about – Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, Elon Musk, Jordan Belfort, Walt Disney, Bill Gates. You don’t need to pick any of these people, these are just the ones I find inspiration from for various reasons. Anyone who has found success has faced several challenges throughout their lives.

Most of all, do not give up! Take a break if you need to, but never give up!
