Not everyone can remain "up," optimistic, and energetic all the time. We all wax
and wane in our moods, outlook, and energy levels. That's normal. People who are
"up" most of the time have many methods to their madness. Adopt some of them to
keep your motivation high.
Do What You Love and the Money Will Follow. Hopefully you love what you
do -- the interaction with people, the challenges, the rewards, and the growth
potential. Make time for what you love.
Take Pride in What You Do and It Will Have Meaning. Even if you are
starting at the bottom of the corporate ladder, do your job with pride and
professionalism. Excellence is its own reward and will be recognized. Taking
pride in doing the best job you can -- no matter what the task -- increases your
self-esteem, competence, and sense of control over your life and work. Not to
mention your promotability.
Challenge Yourself with Continuous Self-Improvement. Set realistic goals
that are attainable in short periods of time. Break larger goals into smaller
increments to give yourself frequent opportunities to experience a sense of
accomplishment. Success feeds on success.
Reward Yourself for Successes and Failures. Devise ways to reward
yourself for your efforts, even when you are not successful. Giving yourself an
"E for Effort" will keep you going so that sooner or later you'll be rewarding
yourself for a success.
Think in Terms of a Career Path, Not Just a Job. Commit yourself to doing
the best job you can with your present company, but remember that few jobs last
forever. Always keep your future destinations in mind while your eye is on the
road immediately before you.
Take Absolute Responsibility for Your Life and Career. Realize that you
and only you can shape your future. Again, small, positive steps lead to bigger
and bigger payoffs.
