I keep getting asked, “How do I get motivated to change my job?” Well, I have three ways that will help YOU get motivated, starting TODAY.
1- Read/ Listen to books, podcasts, & YouTube videos. You should be filling any extra time that you have with motivation. Any time that you’re driving, showering, cooking, cleaning, getting ready, or yard work. You are a conglomerate of the 5 closest people in your life, let motivational audio be one of those 5 and help lift you up.
2- Write down something that you will do TODAY that will get you one step closer to your dream career. It can be as simple as canceling my event on Friday so I can work on my resume. Or it could be sign up for the class or course in the field I want to be in.
3- Find yourself a motivational/ accountability partner. This person can be a current friend of yours, or you can find one online, but they must be at your level or above you, don’t select someone that you have to pull up right now.
Here are some books that have helped me in the past to help build confidence, keep me motivated and help me to grow.
