Motivation can come in waves, as can lack of motivation. The question motivational experts put forth is how does one stay motivated and enthusiastic during the ‘down times’?

One doesn’t. One can process both the ‘down times’ and the better days. Both down times and good days require different responses.

Personally, on a good day, I shouldn’t go with being so enthusiastic that I lose perspective and reason for being, because on another day, I’ll be thinking twice about what I did on a good day when I was enthusiastic. Did I do the right thing, then?

On a not so good day, it’s about keeping negativity in perspective, but I wouldn’t be doing anything risky on those days, so have little to worry about. It’s on the more positive days that positivity can be so infectious that ‘fools rush in where angels fear to tread’.

So, keeping what I do in perspective is the perspective to take, on ‘good and bad’ days.
