Keeping yourself and people under you motivated is the secret to success. Everyone does not land on their dream jobs many have to take the backup plan. But crying about your dissatisfaction with your job or constant cribbing showing your dislike towards your work will not help. The thing that can earn you some satisfaction is by trying again for your passion. Join some courses that can help you with your desired job or in cases where the opportunity is lost, learn to move on.

Motivation is nothing but a happy and focused mind. However, there is nothing that a motivated mind cannot achieve.

There is an everyday routine that runs in our mind and any disruption to the series of events that are planned leads to divert our thought process. Sometimes when you are not able to meet targets or comply with the instructions given, it is natural that we tend to question our ability. One thing leads to another and the process by default lowers our morale and our enthusiasm level drops drastically.

ANALYSE THE ROOT CAUSE 

Has it ever been that you are working on something and not getting results? If yes then pat your back that you are an absolutely normal person. I know it is not funny, but usually, this happens when we are trying a process of rectification without entirely knowing the problem. For instance, if you are trying to post an article but it is not getting approved. You have checked the content multiple times but could not find any grammatical error yet the approval is pending. Well, the problem is not grammar in your article it is the topic. Maybe your research is not deep and many facts quoted are not entirely true.

Most of us lose our cool at such times, we start playing the blame game without thoroughly understanding the problem. All required is to do is a deep analysis with a calm mind and you will catch the flaw and rectify.

DO NOT WASTE TIME ON ERRORS BEYOND YOUR CONTROL

There are many aspects which are way beyond our control like natural calamities or system error at the time of presentation. So stressing about such issues can do no good to anyone and certainly not to you. Even in such situation if you are motivated and look for possible solutions without losing your confidence, there is no way that you will achieve your goals.

KNOW YOUR MISTAKES

Making mistakes is a sign that you are experimenting and taking new initiates. This also shows that you are learning. So it is fine to make mistakes but what is important is to take ownership and know your mistakes to work towards improvement. There is no reason to be disheartened, just try and not repeat it in future. Do not let it spoil your confidence.
