Sometimes we find ourselves at work feeling unmotivated and trying to find ways to push ourselves to work harder. Fortunately, this article will outline some motivational tips that have been quoted by the American billionaire Mark Cuban. If you are unaware of who Mark Cuban is or does, he is actually an investor and the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, an American professional basketball team. Hopefully these tips will help spark some motivation in your life and get you closer to where you want to be financially.
The first piece of advice from Mark is that you should be working like there is someone trying to take it away from you. When you begin to feel lazy or unmotivated remember how lucky you are to have the job you are currently in and how many others struggle to find one. The thought of someone being able to do your job better than you could be enough to push you towards being the best you can be at work.
However, if it doesn’t, another quote from Mark is to stop dreaming and starting doing. Although having dreams are great to think about especially if you really want to pursue them, you have to actually do something about it if you want those dreams to become a reality.
Mark has said that you control your own destiny, meaning that no matter what position you are in right now, your future hasn’t been decided yet. If you don’t make changes or manage your own destiny by working work and making yourself financially stable, no one else will.
Another inspiring tip from Mark Cuban is that you should always look for opportunities to be different or stand out from the norm. If you have ideas or projects that you want to pursue but are afraid to, remember that life is too short to not try out the things you want to.
And finally, remember that every no that you receive, gets you closer to someone saying yes. Something that can make you extremely unmotivated is constant rejection, Mark says instead of feeling down about yourself, you have to realise that you are at least making progress. Keep working hard and try new things to motivate yourself because you will soon see results not only with your finances, but also your life.
