How To Stay Motivated When You Feel Like Giving Up

– by Peter Murphy(from ezinearticles.com) –

If you stay motivated with your work then you will never think of giving up. Giving up or quitting is the plan of the loser. The people who keep quitting with their work are the losers in this world. The people who give up are at the bottom of the food chain. Do you want to be down there? Do you want to be a loser? Are you the type of person that wants to give up when things get tough? You should not be. Here are some tips that you can use so that you do not easily give up on your work.

1. The grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. A lot of people think that other places aside from one’s own are better. An accountant may think that the job of a financial analyst is better. A dentist may think that the work of a computer programmer is more fulfilling. A doctor may think that the life of a soldier is more fulfilling. But who knows? Is someone else’s work better than yours? If you always think that way then you will always think of giving up. The truth is that other people’s work is not always better than yours. If you have work to do then you might as well do it instead of constantly changing careers.

2. Surrender is not an option. Sometimes you will have to fight until your last breath. In war, kamikaze soldiers of Japan did not go home during battle. They fought the enemy up to their last breath. These soldiers are heroes. These soldiers have what it takes to do great things in this world. If you have the same attitude as a kamikaze solider then you are likely to do great things too. You are not going to give up with your work. You are going to do what it takes in order to finish it. You will finish it with your last breath. This is the attitude that you need.

3. Loser is not your middle name. If you keep giving up on things then you are on track to becoming a loser. If you want to get things done then you should have competitiveness within you. How do you find this within you? How do you fire up this competitive vibe within you? You might want to join some sports. You might want to find someone in the office to compete with. If you can do this then you will slowly turn yourself into a competition machine. If you are competing with someone then you definitely do not want to experience the humiliation of defeat.

4. Find an inspiration. If you have an inspiration in your life then you will not easily give up. If you are a parent then you might want to use your children as inspiration for your work. You will not easily give up on work because you know that someone is counting on you. You might want to use your significant other as an inspiration. If you do not work hard then this person will leave you for someone else. You certainly do not want this to happen to you, right?

Giving up is something that losers do and you are definitely not one of them. The tips mentioned here are certainly going to fire up the motivation factor inside you. The urge to give up will simply vanish. You are going to forget about giving up once and for all. Giving up is not going to be one of your options at work when you stay motivated and focus.
