“Hi everyone, my name is Amber, and I’m a workaholic.”

… Yeah, I think that’s how it would sound in Workaholics Anonymous meetings. Do they even exist? I don’t know… I hope that I don’t need an intervention yet. 🤔

If you asked me what it’s like to be a workaholic, I would say that it’s both a blessing and a curse. Sure, I can sit down and do huge amounts of work because I kinda get high on it, but I also tend to regularly drive myself to burnouts, and I’m rarely satisfied with my results. I don’t think it’s healthy. Or cool. 🤨

However, even workaholics lose motivation sometimes. It is a VERY human thing to do and if you ever feel mad for not being motivated, you should do these things:

  1. Stop doing that because it’s insane;
  2. Drink a big glass of water because you’re probably dehydrated.

And sometimes, when you have zero motivation, reading a few motivational quotes can help too.

So I gathered a list of my favorite motivational quotes for you – check them out below and let me know which one’s your favorite! 😉
