"Remember when you were eager to go to work? When the prospect of learning new things and making things happen got you out of bed in the morning? That kind of inspiration is difficult to sustain, as evidenced by the overwhelming majority who drag through their days. What happened to make so many people so tired of their jobs? Find the Fire locates the culprits, and they're not just subpar working environments or uninspiring bosses. In the majority of cases, what drags people down are self-defeating beliefs and thought processes. From fear and dis connectedness to loss of control and feelings of insignificance, nine recurring "anti-muses" sap our energy and optimism. By taking control of the situation and self-administering antidotes, Find the Fire shows how to counter the forces that drain inspiration and create conditions where it thrives. With clarity and humor, stories and examples, research and rigor, the book explains how to: - Overcome the common fears of failure, change, and criticism - Adopt an open mind and seek out new experiences - Embolden yourself to take more risks - Build upon progress and create momentum - Unleash creativity and produce work you're proud of - Kick-start learning and growth - Banish perfectionism - Make choices and prioritize - Reclaim a sense of control and power - Bolster your inner strength and persevere through challenges - Lift your self-confidence and earn respect - Cultivate camaraderie with coworkers - Dispel feelings that nothing really matters and make an impact with your work - And much more Inspiration rarely comes in a flash. Instead of waiting passively, the proactive strategies unlock reservoirs of inspiration (and energy) that have been buried by circumstance, neglect, and boredom, and dramatically improve work performance and well-being.
