Discover the 3 motivational quotes that can help you getting through tough times at work.

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

You’ll never be in the situation where you have everything you need to do your job and meet your goals easily. Resources and time are thin everywhere, and the expectations high. You’ll probably get more resources if you can show first great results with fast nothing as a start capital Even if it may seem unfair to you.. That’s why you cannot wait to have it all to start being productive. And don’t forget that you never have « nothing ». It may not be the expected ones, but you always have resources to achieve things: contacts, online courses, the free version of the software you would love to use… There’s always a way to do something good with the resources you have. When you do all that you can and are able to produce good results, you may get easier the extra resources you need to achieve great results.

Sometimes the best thing that you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

No matter how hard you try, you’ll never be able to control everything. You can’t do everything by yourself. So you have to trust your co-workers and the members of your team. You can’t see in the future or predict how people will behave. You can just imagine it. Who wants to spend sleepness nights worrying about situations which will probably never really occur? If you cannot influence a situation anymore, then there’s no need to think about it and wonder what you could have done in another way and what would have happened then. Just do your best and then let it go. There’s no reason that it does not work out in a positive way for you. 

Love it, change it, or leave it.

Every job has its tough days, tasks, times. But if you love what you do, then it’s worth it. If you think every day that you hate your job and struggle to go out of your bed in the morning, then you should question what is really annoying you about your job and try to change it. For example, if the workload is definitely too heavy for you alone, maybe you can try to convince your boss to hire someone to help you, even if it is just an intern at the beginning? The only thing that you cannot change is the people, yourself included. Of course, you can work on yourself and try to improve some points, but you cannot change who you are and shouldn’t do so for any job in the world. If there’s really no way to improve your situation, and if you feel like you can’t take it anymore, maybe you should consider changing jobs before you lose all your joy and energy. Maybe it’s simply time for you to put the first quote into practice at another workplace.
