August is here and it’s the 3rd already. This year has been running pretty fast. As usual, it’s time for some inspiration. I learned a few things in July that can help you with your work-life and I’d be sharing that with you. I also got satisfactory feedback from the July Inspiration post especially concerning the video and I am so glad to know that some people found it valuable.

Honestly, the beginning of July wasn’t too rosy for me but thankfully everything got better towards the end. Here are things that can help you get the best out of August and the rest of the year.

Learn from your mistakes

It’s okay to make mistakes and learn from it. No one is perfect really but what’s important is to strive to get better at your work. So learn and get better at what you do. I made a lot of mistakes in July, trust me! The beautiful aspect of everything was learning to see the positives despite all. Learning to see the positive irrespective of the situation can be a daunting task but you can do it. Read this article on how to stay positive and mean it. I intend to continue with this in my work-life. Let’s keep to this and let me know how it goes.

Do what interests you

At some point, you need to know what interests you and make the best of it. Find what makes you happy and do more of it. Don’t leave any stones unturned. Discover new ways to do your job and make work more interesting. Involve yourself in volunteer work within your organization if possible, you may find joy doing that. 

It’s no one’s obligation to make you happy

You can’t depend on anyone for your happiness. There is an article on 13 great ways to stay happy at work and I strongly recommend that you go read it. You need to understand that your happiness solely depends on you. You deserve to be happy at work and you can! If you get so bored at work, you can also read this; how to not be bored at work and I am sure these tips will be useful.

Be creative

Towards the end of July, I had to make out new ways to make my work-life more interesting and fulfilling. Creativity is really important. This way, you will derive pleasure in doing things you never really thought of initially. So sit, relax, think and make out something you will be passionate about. You know those things you have been thinking about. Now is the time to practicalize and put them to test. Don’t be scared of failure. How will you know your worth if you never try? You are allowed to fail, fall, and then rise again.

These are a few things that kept me going last month and I thought to share. The inspiration category of Zinny Factor seeks to inspire and motivate you and I really do wish you the best this month and always.
