Five Things to do When You Lose Your Mojo
4. Talk to your mentor. Having someone to reflect your situation to and hearing some advice from someone you trust is a great way to discover how to deal with a particularly challenging problem. If you don’t have a mentor, get one. And while you’re at it, become one, too. (If you can’t find a mentor, I am always available!)
5. Do something creative. If you have a journal, take some time and write about what has been happening. If you don’t, consider getting one. Or, just grab a sheet of paper and start doodling. You’d be surprised how often solutions materialize when you open your mind and let go a little bit. Give yourself some quiet time to reflect, and see what happens. You might just find that you have the next great American novel in you.
You WILL get your mojo back. Rather than sit in the same place and lament about it and suffer through a really bad moment, hour or day, try to change things up, and maybe your mojo will come back even stronger and better than before.
