Remember, this is just a season, and this too, shall pass.

Feeling stuck? Are you in desperate need of a win at work to help you stay engaged? Remember, this is just a season, and this too, shall pass.

Here are key takeaways from an insightful HBR article that helped me step back, recalibrate, and focus on activities to help get me closer to a win.

1️⃣ Celebrate the small wins to help lift your spirits. By listing out the details of your recent work project and identifying what went well, you can shift your perspective and lift your spirits.

2️⃣ Set boundaries: Surround yourself with colleagues and friends who uplift and inspire you. Don't be afraid to limit your exposure to negative influences, including social media.

3️⃣ Focus on your strengths: Recognize the things you did well.

4️⃣ Notice what's going right: Avoid getting caught up in negative beliefs. Tip: Make it a habit to write down three positive things each day.

5️⃣ Learn from others' wins: Not in a comparing yourself to others kind of way. Instead, view their successes as inspiration. Look for role models who motivate you and learn from their drive and determination.

6️⃣ Embrace new opportunities: Challenge yourself by seeking out new experiences and pushing beyond your comfort zone.

Remember, the journey to success is filled with ups and downs. By implementing these strategies and seeking support from mentors and colleagues, you can overcome challenges, accumulate tiny wins, and eventually achieve significant victories. 🚀
