WHY YOU NEED A MOTIVATION CHART
I am living abroad as an Expat for more than half a year now. In this time so many things happened and our lives have changed completely. First of all, I fully enjoy this new lifestyle and all the great experiences, observations and acquaintances. However, I also realized that in moments of job rejections, culture shock or when something you planned is just not working out, it is easy to lose track of your motivation.
MAYBE YOU START QUESTIONING YOURSELF - MAYBE YOU FORGOT WHY YOU DID THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE
Therefore, I was thinking about a way to remind ourselves why we do what we do. Everybody has a reason for moving abroad. Most of the time an external factor like study or work is the trigger but most people would not actually go unless there is also a personal motivation behind. Writing it down in black and white can help to overcome fears and to stay positive.
Sometimes it’s just a little reminder we need.
It’s also a great to have a piece of paper to get back to from time to time and to reflect on the changes you made. Maybe your motivation has shifted. Maybe you lost track of the reasons you came here. Maybe it is just really interesting to see what yourself have been thinking some time before.
