How’s your motivation level going? Are you inspired each day? Do you have to put extra effort into being motivated to get things done? Maybe your motivation comes from looking at your child’s face and they just walk up to you and say I love you and give you a big hug…that works for me…
No matter what is going on, it’s important to stay motivated or at least positive about being motivated. Each day there always seems to be bad news, or someone is struggling to pay a bill, get something fixed, keeping their house. It’s rough. Is the glass half full or half empty? Does it really matter which way you look at that?
Motivation is key to taking that next step. Whatever that next step should be, for whatever reason a next step is needed. Positive energy breeds positive results. Regardless if one believes in the term law of attraction, we all follow some form to keep ourselves motivated. Yes, there are those that seem to always be negative, but if that is someone we love it’s up to us to motivate them and help to change that.
Years ago my best friend, other mother and I fell out. She was ALWAYS hum drum, negative every time she opened her mouth. We worked together, so I had the lovely opportunity to speak with her each day. One day, I could not take it any longer. I snapped at her and did not speak to her for a couple of weeks. I walked around as if she did not exist. Her negative energy was waying me down. Eventually she approached me to make up as well as attended a popular fad then called “Lifespring” that helped her be more positive. Today, I miss her…she left too soon..but I was happy to spend time with her, play gospel music for her as she slept, and just sit in her room and just be in her presence as she was on her journey to a better place.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not happy happy joy joy all the time, but I try to be. I use to be so shy (my friends don’t believe that). It was difficult for me to look a person in their eye. I took a course called “EST” at the time. After two weekends of intenseness…(is that a word)…I was able to hold my head up and feel good about speaking to complete strangers while looking them straight in the eye.
I said all of that to say we each should take action and accountability for our moods and efforts. Positive things come to us many times because we expect them too. We go through the negative thoughts and actions with unspoken energy that things will get better, this too shall pass. Why not start out with “this is going to be a positive day” and expect it to be. Even when it’s not looking that great, let’s focus to feel better about what can go well.
Twitter has helped me to be more positive for myself. I make an effort every day to say something positive intentionally. There have been moments when I wasn’t feeling what I was saying, but it made me feel better to say it. I make the effort to hopefully inspire at least one other person to feel better about their circumstance. I look for things that are positive and share that in the hope that someone else is paying attention. Maybe it helped them to turn the other cheek and activate some positive energy.
After all, when it’s all said and done we are left with ourselves anyway, we might as well feel good about who we are looking at right?
