Lost passion about your career?


The smell of that new career, new suit, and new name tag just doesn’t seem to have that same wow factor that it once had. You have just realized that you have lost passion in your career and turned it into your j.o.b.


Did you know that 82% of all Americans have lost passion after working at the same career or job for one year? This shows that losing passion does happen, but I have a few tricks to get your mind, body, and soul back onto the passion express.


Lucky for you I am an expert when it comes to reigniting your personal motivation toward your career.


I have a quote to point your mind in the right direction: “Motivation is like deodorant; I suggest you use it daily. If you think even for a second you should reapply it, for the sake of all of us, please do.”

Lost passion in your career is not the end all, be all. Here are three tips to get you back on track:


  1. You are an emotional creature. There are days you wake up feeling refreshed and other days you wish you could just lie there like a stick. We all have ups and downs. I suggest you start to focus on you. Start to realize your emotions and understand why you feel the way you do. Identifying what you did the day before to feel happy, energized, or passionate is the key to feeling that way more often. For example if you ate shrimp and woke up with a rash, you would recall what you ate to figure out why you have the rash. The same applies to your emotions and energy levels.
  2. Your career is your path toward your dreams. Reflect why you are working in the first place. Is it to get that cool car, go on that big vacation, or make enough money to send your kids to private school? having Lost passion in your job is bound to happen, but if you recall why you are working, it will give your work direction when the passion fades.
  3. If you lost passion in your career and you just can’t get it back, that is okay. The best cure for “Lost Passion Syndrome” is to reflect and think about when you did feel that passion. Recall all the amazing memories and the people you met. Or maybe it was a convention that made you realize the direction you want to go in your life. Whatever it is for you, relive it. Go to that location, restaurant, bar, vacation stop, or call that friend who got you where you are today. Sometimes the best cure is to go to the beginning and recall your first kiss with your passionate career.


These three tips are not mind-blowing, but they are proven to work. I have a podcast where I talk about mindset and passion. The question I get asked all the time is how to keep that passion. feeling that you lost passion is not unique; it happens. Focus on why and recall how you got to where you are today. The number one coaching tip I say to my students is: “If your passion is gone, why are you concerned that it left?” I want you to understand that you want the passion to come back and you can get it back. Just use the tips above and keep on pushing forward!
