Sustaining motivation can be tough even under the best of circumstances. When we are experiencing doubt, it’s easy to feel like we have no power; it’s easy to feel like we don’t have a choice. However, most of the time, we do.
To increase and maintain your motivation, surround yourself with people who encourage and champion you and your efforts. Positive people are optimistic; and optimism is the first step in building your self-confidence and keeping you inspired.
Taking risks is a great opportunity to stand out and present yourself as a leader, and not a follower. However, beyond the external opportunities and recognition risk-taking can bring, it also provides an opportunity for internal growth. It can actually open you to a world of endless possibilities you may not have considered.
