Get Your Shift Together: How To Stay Driven To Do Better
Sometimes, life begins to feel like a series of exhausting, never-ending weeks. In such times, it becomes increasingly difficult to stay motivated. After all, anyone can fall prey to burnout after long periods of working consistently.
Whether you feel burnt out or like you’re stuck in a rut where nothing is working out the way you had planned, remember that it’s an entirely normal part of the process. No one is immune to bad days. What you can control is how you cope with these unforeseen circumstances. You just have to find the strength from within to keep trudging on.
If you are not enjoying yourself on your journey toward your goal, you’re ripping yourself off. Trust me. There are enough people willing to do that for you.
Change your outlook
Hall of Fame Speaker Steve Rizzo’s seminal book, Get Your SHIFT Together, outlines poignant and funny ways to transform your life and steer it in the direction of success. One way you can do this is to adjust your attitude toward things in life.
With a successful stand-up comedy career in his past, Rizzo is a firm believer in finding humor in every situation. This doesn’t mean you should take things lightly, but it’s important to find positive aspects in otherwise negative situations to stay driven.
When you commit yourself to finding humor in everything and doing away with negativity, you’ll find it easier to cope with situations that would have been incredibly demotivating otherwise.
Get serious, but not too serious
Taking your life seriously does not mean you give up all happiness. In fact, that’s what leads most people down a spiral of despair. Staying driven involves enjoying your life while you chase your dreams. Choosing to be happy is a decision that will take you a long way; only then will you find the love, joy and laughter you need to keep you going.
Face your fears
We often find ourselves stuck in an endless loop of disappointment because we’re too afraid to take a leap of faith. But the only way to get ahead is to move forward. Your self-doubt needs to be replaced by self-confidence so you can follow your instincts and follow the path of success. Focusing on the bigger picture will help you conquer obstacles on the way.
Be kind to yourself
Self-doubt usually leads to negative feelings. If you’re exhausted, burnt out or demotivated, understand that it’s all part of the process. If things aren’t working out the way you’d like them to, remember that you can only go up from there. And, of course, don’t forget to find humor in the little things in life.
