-when your challenge progress gets reset -when your questions don't get traction -when your hard working codes don't trend -when your quizzes get rejected -when the followers you admire could care less about your work -when you're trying your very best to be the very best but just get stuck with the rest -when you spend most of your time learning but realise there's no end to learning

Q. When your challenge progress gets reset A. What do you mean? Never happened to me. Q. When your question don't get traction A. It happens, so mean who people don't have knowledges about a specific argument, it is the life, no one can know all, but if i can help you... why not? Q. When your hard working codes don't trend A. Can't speak for all, but for me... "popularity here has the same value of Instagram followers, just a temporary satisfication", code for yourself before of all, then... share! Q. When your quizzes get rejected A. Generally i use quizzes of external sources that i think they are "valid for the Quiz Factory", but anyway i'm too noob with the quizzes so i can accept it. Q. When the followers you admire could care less about your work A. I like the rationality of people i admire here, but my work is my work, i mean... to be honest, simply i don't care about that. Q. When you're tying your very best to be the very best but just get stuck with the rest A. It means that i'm not trying to be the very best, no one can say to try more than other people. Q. When you spend most of your time learning but realise there is no end end to learning A. I wanna die. :3 Nope... maybe, but i prefer practice, anyway i often feel demotivate for this reason, but when i "reach a goal" there is a great satisfication to pay my efforts. Q. When you are too lazy to live with the humans and you might be a sloth A. (〜￣△￣)〜 Don't lose you motivation Gavin! ;)
People who stay motivate will have the best satisfication for their efforts. When i saw codes with the prototype and the call( ) i felt highly demotivate, because it looked too hard for me, now i use them often in my other projects and i understand (partial) the logic behind them. Just an example, you are a human and it is normal feel demotivate, but keep up your running to your goal, you'll feel definitely better. Just an advice based to my personal experience, in two years. Remember that if most people don't see your codes, you have anyway other people who appreciate your works and can see your efforts! [ Post Scriptum ] Epic Badge is the new Welcome to the Hell.
I remember no pain no gain
Thanks @Maz, I'll try not to lose my motivation. I just get disappointed a lot when things don't happen as I expect them too. AND I WORK SO HARD!!!!😠 😧I'm tired really I guess, of disappointment... Anyway, the first question refers to when you try and go for the Epic badge but your progress resets because you drew with someone.
No end to learning: That's what keeps me motivated!
How do I stay motivated when programming? I put a picture of a Mercedes W124 in a corner. It's my dream car and I hope to earn like 2000€ till I'm, say, 21 to myself that car.
Let's hope so @Maz, thank you for sharing your story, it really helps. I'm feeling a lot better after your words, but it's the thought that really counts here. Just the fact that you took time out of your life to motivate me. Thank you, I really appreciate it. ☺
It's definitely painful @Ehtesham Ali and it can also drive a person crazy at times when knowing how much you still don't know @Ibaniba O., but you both are right.
Maz is very motivational. I love most of the comments that Maz leaves
