It appears that work motivation is at a low-point for most people today.
In an October 2012 Study by ComPsych Corp. less than one-third of the 5,000 people surveyed are satisfied with their work load. That means that 67% (of the people surveyed) are dis-satisfied, highly stressed and on their way to burnout.
Often times, when we're in situations that are hard and full of stress (like too much work and not enough time) we feel frustrated and 'stuck' because we cannot change the situation in this red-hot minute.
But, we can ALWAYS change how we feel, look at, handle and react to what's in front of us. And ANYTIME we focus on what we CAN control, we find relief and eventually, answers and new insight for improvement.
That's why Enter the Zone is one of the Wake Up Eager Habits for Leaders and Sales Pros. It's the Habit that focuses you on finding ways to reduce resistance and stress and increase vibration, energy and alignment.
So, when your work motivation dips and stress rises, you could: complain with the others at the water cooler, and you could slack off at work and do less.
But I can almost guarantee that your relief will only last for a very short time...I;ve tried them too, they don't work.
I'm going to suggest something very different for reducing stress and getting more work motivation. I want you to try these Four Skill-Building Actions.
I know, building skill confidence & expertise doesn't sound "sexy," but the stimulation from doing it is COMPLETELY re-energizing, empowering and invigorating! That's because it helps you stay sharp , confident and "in the know" about your field of expertise. In addition, the new & different people you'll meet along the way will help you build insight and a new perspective that will EXPAND your World.
"All the top achievers I know in life are life-long learners... looking for new skills, insights and ideas. If they're not learning, they're not growing...not moving." Dennis Waitley
