Many of us often feel discouraged in our jobs due to various reasons. Maybe it’s not what you wanted to do, or maybe the office environment is hard for you. But, you know what, you don’t necessarily have to love your job every day to make your work stand out, it is actually the inspiration and motivation that is going to make your efforts significant and recognizable and make you feel fulfilled. In thoughtful words of George C. Hubbs

If your work is becoming uninteresting, so are you. Work is an inanimate thing and can be made lively and interesting only by injecting yourself into it. Your job is only as big as you are.”
