Brittney,

I am not a fan of motivation...I am a fan of inspiration, and there is so much around me that inspires me...I just start listing them and every day becomes sunny...and flowers help too.  A

I don't think focusing on the negatives is a good idea very often. That said, if I am particularly lacking in motivation to better myself and my production, I will occasionally think of my past failures and potential consequences of future failures. Failure is an unfortunate part of life, but it is beneficial if used as a learning tool.

Living in sunny CA, we have few gloomy days! It's easy to get up at 5:30 am, take my dog for a walk, start the coffee and get the day started! I look at my calender for the day, make my prospecting calls for the next two hours. Then its time to return calls, go on appointments.  I have a bulletin board that I post my goals and what I want to acheive. The key to staying motivated is knowing what your going to do everyday and stick to it. Hope this helps!

People that are motivated are born that way.

You cannot talk anyone into it, or pay enough to get it.

Gloomy mondays do not exist for those that are self motivated.

Motivation comes from within. WhenI am feeling the lack of desire to do "work" then I take a break - step away.  I might take a walk, meditate, invite a friend to lunch, go to the beach ... work will always be there.

You need to remind yourself of your "purpose".  Goals are one thing.  Purpose is another.  We all want to make money but what is the reason.  What is your purpose in life?  Your career is an avenue to fulfill your purpose.
