I am often asked how I stay MOTIVATED.
The truth? I don’t. I also have to constantly look within to find the motivation. I WISH it was always omnipresent, ready to lift me up when I may be feeling weighed down or lacking…
I do usually find the motivation to do the damn things, because I know I am WORTH it, and I know that no one else can do it FOR me. I know that INTENTIONS are wonderful, but without ACTION, they get nowhere. And I know I am always better for doing the stuff I may not always wanna do – I promise you from the depths of my soul, there is a REALLY incredibly empowering feeling within RISING above your excuses and DOING IT. Powerful shit, no joke.
But you may not see the times I hit snooze.
You may not hear the pep talks I have to dole out to myself to get in gear.
You may not view the mental battle that sometimes comes from knowing you need to put in the effort, but not seeing those efforts pan out.
And you may not hear me occasionally whining that I just don’t wanna (replete with whiny toddler voice!)
I try to share the good and the bad, the ugly and the bloopers (see Saturday’s entry for proof, haha) because I am a firm believer that ALL of it is part of the journey, and my hope is that it inspires someone else to realize that things are sometimes less than pretty, the struggle is sometimes so damn real, and I hope to inspire people to rise above those struggles and DO IT ANYWAYS. Be your OWN source of motivation!
And if you need additional support and motivation, join me in my awesome Success Group 😉 – after all, that right there is a HUGE source of how I am constantly motivated!
