Assess Your Job
Identify the positive aspects of your career and use that as your motivation, Gloria says. "Many times people focus on the bad things about their job," she says. "My question is, 'If it's that bad, why do you continue to come every day?' There must be a good reason for you to put yourself through this."
Also, understand what you gain from your job. Some people say they're working for the paycheck, but even in poor financial times, no one really works just for the paycheck, Gloria says. "The paycheck enables them to do and have something that's valuable to them," she says.
