How to get motivated?

Easy answer I’m expecting to see is that commission check. But after being in the same role for 2 years, selling the same product, finding yourself giving the same product demo on a daily basis, how do you find motivation to keep smiling and dialing?


Don't get me wrong, I don’t mind my job as much as the next guy and I’d consider myself to be successful in this role. But my energy level and motivation is at an all time low and I’m at a loss.

I can't give specifics but high level, avoid the peaks of winning and the valleys of losing, to paraphrase how John Wooden motivated his teams. Sorry if that's some cheesy bullshit some LI "influencer" would say but I believe if you are riding too high or sinking too low, it's harder to be happy in general.

It definitely can become hard to stay motivated after a while in a role. I am 5+ years in my current role so I understand this very well. I basically would pick little things to work on (practice new negotiating tactics, discovery techniques, etc).

Eventually though, I ran out of things to test and practice given my current role/product.

That is the point I started looking for a new role, I know I am personally very motivated by being challenged and having opportunities to learn. Those are hard to manufacture if they don't already exist, so once I exhaust all possible learning opportunities and feel stagnant, time to move on. 

I am currently exploring new roles because of the above.

I firmly believe that there always room for improvement. I’ll take a look inward to see where I can improve and maybe that will help. Good luck looking for a new role!

I once read 'Pick up the phone, you have nothing to loose' Ever since I read that, it's changed my outlook on those days.
