Have you ever stumbled groggily into work at 9 a.m. on a Monday morning, with a pleasant weekend in the rear-view and five straight days of the office grind staring you in the face?
We've all been there before!
Here are 7 Tips on how to motivate yourself to work hard
1. Convince yourself you want to do it.
One of the easiest things you can do to motivate yourself is to think of the work you're about to do as not being so hard, after all.
2. Take control.
While it's easy to be overwhelmed by various personal and professional responsibilities, you can help yourself stay focused by keeping in mind that, at the very least, you are in control of your own actions.
3. Surround yourself with other people who are working hard.
No man (or woman!) is an island. In order to pursue your goals with everything you have, it's helpful to be around other people who are working just as hard.
Whether it's coworkers who inspire you on the job or a group of like-minded friends you meet up with afterwards, it's important to have peers who push you to succeed.
4. Break up your tasks into smaller tasks.
"Break your hard work into component parts; it makes it easier to see where the obstacles are so you can be prepared to overcome them,"
5. Stay focused.
It's difficult to motivate yourself to keep working if you're not able to concentrate on the task at hand.
6. Remember your "why."
Nothing is more motivating than reminding yourself why you're doing the work in the first place. Whether you're building a product you love or simply putting food on the table for your family, it's crucial that you remain in touch with what inspires you.
