How often do you find yourself listening to your colleagues only to rebut what they say? When you have actions like that, how can you find a good work environment to keep motivated? Next time a colleague talks, truly listen to comprehend what they are saying.
Here are the powerful words to remember: “discuss, don’t complain.” What’s the difference? Well, when you discuss, you try to understand the root cause, and you try to find a solution. When you complain, you only focus on the problem and find "pleasure" in dwelling on the faults of others.
More words to keep in mind in order to keep motivated at work are "speak with understanding." Acknowledge people’s good qualities and praise them. When we focus on others' good qualities, it also makes us feel happier.
Whenever there is an opportunity to make yourself available for service to others, do it. The more time you spend helping others and not hiding away from them when help is needed, the happier you will be at work. What you are doing is strengthening your relationships and
growing your network. These support systems will later come to your aid too when you are in need of help.
