How to stay motivated when you lost your job

A lot of people lost their jobs because of the coronavirus, everything got to be shut down and some people work from home.

What are you going to do when you lost your job? Is it the end and that’s it? Is this something you should be worried about?

Don’t panic if you lost your job because there is plenty of opportunities you can do to motivate yourself, you can learn a new skill, spend some time learning more things, do something productive and change your habits.

A lot of people think when they lost their jobs, they worry, they think it’s the end of the world and they don’t see opportunities.

They don’t vision themselves about what they’re going to do. They think their job gives them security and income.

The job you work, you get paid by the time. The time you start and the time you finished work.

Employees mindset will be getting a job and work for money, entrepreneurs see opportunity when things went wrong and get it fixed.

There is a difference between employees and entrepreneurs. A lot of employees when they lost their jobs, they think that’s it, not getting paid and not going to work.

They stop because they think it’s the end, they don’t see what they can do to keep going even if they’re not working. They just do nothing, not take any actions and they don’t have a goal to set.

They expect everything is easy but nothing is easy in life, you got to put some work into it.

Entrepreneurs continue to learn and keep moving forward, no matter what condition it is, they never stop.

When you lost your job, it is time for you to step out of your comfort zone, get out there and take actions and responsibilities. Don’t just sit around there and not take any actions, you should be proactive and at least learn something new. You should learn a skill and change your habits. Motivation is not some kind of magical solution, it requires hard work is to keep you going.

Take actions towards your goals 

It doesn’t matter what situation we are in, there are no excuses that can stop us from taking actions towards your goals.

Your motivation comes from you, not from anyone because other people can’t motivate you, they can only inspire you to do it and you got to motivate yourself to take the action.

To take action towards your goals:

  1. You got to do it
  2. Believe in yourself
  3. Get out of your comfort zone
  4. Stay motivated
  5. Watch some motivational videos
  6. Get inspired
  7. Be proactive
  8. No excuses
  9. Push yourself
  10. Change your daily habits
You got to jump over the gap from your current situation to your goals. Your current situation won’t do you any good for your goals, it won’t make you rich, it won’t give you motivation, it won’t give you the solution to achieve your goals and it keeps you there. Your comfort zone is to drag you down, stop you from getting to your goals.
Every step you take, there are obstacles and barriers that make you not want to take any further. Life is hard but you got to get over it, you got to fight for it and face the challenges. It’s going to be hard and stressful but you got to deal with it.

Don’t let anything to stop us from getting to our goals

People losing jobs, losing money, no income coming to their banks and people are losing everything. Don’t let that stop you from doing something that you want to achieve.

What stops you is fear because we scared of losing everything we want to accomplish.

We want to get to our goals so we can afford the things that we need for living.
