Regaining That Lost Motivation


Are you steadily losing your motivation? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there: nothing seems to inspire or provokes you to do anything. You feel as though you’re in a huge slump; a black hole that’s sucking the life and creativity out of you. This can strike anywhere, anytime and doesn’t discriminate against certain types of people. It can even happen while you’re at work and isn’t helpful for anyone involved; you feel bad for not being productive or creative enough, others get frustrated that tasks aren’t being completed quick enough and your boss becomes concerned that projects aren’t on track. It might feel like the end of the world now but don’t worry, there are plenty of ways that you can regain that lost motivation. Here are just a few points on how you can do this

  • Remember why you’re there

Go back to the very basics and remind yourself why you’re where you are and why you enjoy doing what you do. This should kick-start your inspiration and push you toward the completion of a particular task.

  • Change your scenery

Being around and looking at the same dull things every day can really drain the creativity and inspiration out of a person. When this is the case, it’s a good idea to change up where you are. Try going for a walk or working in a café. The new scene may reinvigorate the mind.

  • It’s all about PMA

Adopting a positive mind-set can make all the difference when it comes to being motivated at work. I know it’s easier said than done but focusing on the positives can make a huge difference.

  • Surround yourself with positive people

Remember that positivity spreads like wildfire. By being around people that inhibit a positive mind-set, you’re more likely to respond to the good energy and complete tasks in a motivated fashion.

  • Patience is a virtue

All good things take time and that goes for someone’s motivation too. If you’re having trouble regaining that lost motivation then don’t worry, it sometimes takes some time before it returns. The best thing to do would be to avoid getting frustrated and be patient. It’ll come back eventually! 


These a just a few points that you can follow to ensure you regain that motivation. If none of these seem to work, try broadening your methods and try something new that could revive your mind. For example, try painting, writing or exercising to get those creative juices flowing. From there, you may find inspiration to carry on working. Remember to choose the method that suits you and you’ll be sure to find that lost motivation.
