M Is For Motivation

It can be hard to get motivated sometimes.  We all know the little triggers that help us to be motivated but sometimes it’s easier to sit back and refuse to use them.  For me it’s fresh air, but sometimes I don’t feel like a walk, can’t always be bothered to get in the car and drive to the beach, especially if it’s raining.  But it always works.  I can sit and do nothing knowing that if I just get up and go outside I will feel better, I will be able to find that something that motivates me.  It doesn’t happen often, thank goodness but every once in a while.

‘When people say to me: “How do you do so many things?” I often answer them, without meaning to be cruel: “How do you do so little?”  It seems to me that people have vast potential.  Most people can do extraordinary things if they have the confidence or take the risks.  Yet most people don’t.  They sit in front of the telly and treat life as if it goes on forever’. ~Philip Adams

Motivate yourself and do extraordinary things.

Enjoy the journey!

    Motivation is big. If you have the passion without motivation you will stand still. I always call it the inertia syndrome. But I believe inertia has roots that need to be identified and removed. Then that motivation is free and clear, bouncing and rejoicing….lol as it does what it sought out to do.

      Hi Paula, thanks for visiting. I agree, motivation is what drives us forward and we can be passionate about something without having any motivation, for sure.

      Enjoy the journey!

    I agree with you Mandy. Think about what motivates you and life is so much better. Music does it for me and I can’t wait to take part in more every week. It’s not something I do at least daily and boy does it make me feel good!
