Dear Folake/How do I stay motivated at a job that I hate?

Every week, we feature problems that have been emailed to us by readers. Below is a work related problem- what are your thoughts on how best to solve it?

I hate my job. I joined the company a few years ago and when I first started, the work was fun, my boss was great and the company cared about the employees.

Now, the sales quotas are high and the boss is new and clueless. Given how bad the economy is, I should feel lucky to have this job but I find it hard to wake up everyday and go to work. The only thing that motivates me is the salary.

I want to be excited about my job and give it my best but its difficult. What should I do?
