This definitely me right now!!!
It’s been a very motivating day for me. It’s the start (well now the end) of the first work day of the first work week in the first month of 2012 and today was well spent. I would like to apologize for my incoherent thoughts. I am currently getting sick and if you are in tune with your body you can always tell when something isn’t up. I can actually feel my sore throat creep in to my chest and lungs and convert itself in to congestion and soon the coughing will start…blah. Anyway…
I’ve been building and working towards the best version of myself possible and that encompasses a lot of things. I want to be in the best shape possible and remain that way. I want to be successful in my business as a servant to others and an agent of change. I want to have the freedom that I long for and move towards the vision of the life I know that I should be living. I will have the things that I want. I have made these choices and decisions to ensure that I will work towards that future and accomplish that vision and make it reality.
For me Mondays used to be a day I despised. Manic, they were called. I see so many people that I know dread that first day of the week and why? Because they hate their job, aren’t doing what they love, don’t have what they want but aren’t motivated enough to do anything to change their current position, etc. etc. I started really despising the fact that looking at the start of the week with such negativity pretty much mapped out how the rest of the week was going to be. It would be rare to see someone actually happy to start their week. It became ridiculous to me. I flipped the script.
Motivation for me has always come pretty easy. I could motivate myself to do anything that I wanted but making the choice to do something and then sustaining the energy that I built up to continue and actually finish was and still is my problem. I have gotten much, much better at it thanks to my family and true friends and by also doing a lot of personal development and reading.
But I tell you now, don’t ever rely on someone else to motivate you. If you know something needs to be done, do it. Whatever it may be. That should be motivation enough. It’s got to come from within you and because it does come from within you, you fuel it. You decide when it runs out and I hope for you that it never does run out. That it simply evolves to the next best thing and soon enough you’ll be a torch for others.
Night. Kick some ASS tomorrow!
