Everyone loves to fantasise about making it to the top one day. But how do successful people stay motivated at work when there are so many distractions out there?
We were as clueless as you until we did a bit of digging. Check out the fascinating answers we unearthed below.
1. Roll with the punches
Lots of people think they’ve got it sorted as long as they plan ahead. Successful people go one step further. They anticipate any little bump in the road and have a back-up solution. That way, they don’t get disappointed when things don’t go according to plan.
2. There’s no ‘I’ in teamwork… or success
Even the wealthiest CEO of the most prestigious company doesn’t oversee everything that goes on – so don’t you try! Everyone has a support team no matter how high up they are. Leaning on these people in times of trouble helps you to carry on.
3. Be realistic
Having goals is great, but it’s pretty tempting to imagine yourself as the boss, even when you’re merely just an assistant. Don’t run before you can walk and set attainable targets that escalate as you hit them.
4. Love your job
Most successful people, wait for it, actually enjoy their jobs. They have fun in the office so much that it often feels like they’re not there at all. This doesn’t necessarily mean quitting finance to become a movie star, but it does mean choosing your career wisely to stay motivated
5. Look on the bright side
It’s important to stay positive in all walks of life, but particularly in the workplace where things can get super stressful. If you’re someone who struggles to maintain positivity at the best of times, then check out our essential guide here for some starter tips.
