At times, it can be a fleeting desire – difficult to recapture once it is lost. This is particularly true after a major setback or working toward a long-term goal. It happens to the best of us, you’re on a roll at work, close to your goal and then slowly (or suddenly) you lose it, you’re stalled. Some call it a rut, a slump or a loss of mojo.

Thankfully, countless tips and tricks can be found and scientific studies have even proven some strategies are better than others. But finding what truly works for you comes from trial and error.

Do you know what works for you? Take a minute to read a few tips on how to find self-motivation in my weVENTURE EDGE Column in this week’s FLORIDA TODAY Business section, here.
