– Steve jobs, during his address at Stanford said “Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish”. This statement has inspired many in the present times. Same should be true for you when you are being demoralized by environment around you. He did what he believed in and it clicked after a consistent failures and one day Macintosh surfaced in front of the world.
– Do not allow environment get the better of you. Shape it the way you want it to be. No one else can do it but you. I am writing this article with a cup of coffee on my side and my eyes overseeing green pastures out of the window. This is what inspires me and it is exactly what I want my environment to be like.
– It is important to understand the dynamics of the work environment you are employed in and make the best out of it. Do not work hard. Understand the rules of the game and then play the rules. Play smart and get the best by being smart and not by doing head-down job day in and day out.
– If you feel you are not clear about what you want, make sure you write your goals down and read them every day. This is inspiration for you. It is driving you from the inner side and making it count everyday of your hard work at your workplace.
Demotivation is indeed a sin. You need to be strong enough to stand against the odds and make it happen. It may be your inner self, environment around you or even the people who are around you daily. Stay focused, play smart, be inspired and make yourself stand out from the odds.
