Motivation Monday

Since my Blog has grown and I have found that there are so many things to discuss and provide, I will be moving forward with more "themed" days. 

Mondays will be, "Motivation Monday." We could all use that extra push on Mondays (along with that extra coffee)!

One of my most favorite motivational quotes belongs to Jim Rohn, who says, "Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going."

Motivation comes from within, but is typically driven by or sustained by an outside force (person, thought, action, etc.). What is motivating for one person, will not necessarily be motivating for the next. Some are motivated by a need, others by a want. 

What's important is that you find your motivation. If you don't have any - get some. Without it, you won't form a habit and without a positive habit in place, you likely will not form positive change.

When it comes to your health, fitness and overall vibrant lifestyle - think about my 3 thoughts/questions to find your own motivation: 
  • What do you want to accomplish? Set the goal, write it down and have it in your view. You'll be more likely to stay motivated.
  • What will the outcome of goal achievement mean for you? (Weight loss, vibrancy, healthier, happier, fitter, etc?) Use motivation as your bridge to that place.
  • Just do it. Stop being lazy.
And back to Mr. Rohn, "Motivation is what gets you started....." So what are you waiting for? Get started today - after all, remember last weekend when you said, "Starting on Monday.....?!?"

Stay tuned for next Monday when I'll give you my ways to beat your exercise boredom!

  1. Awesome post! Motivation is the bees knees.

    Jim Rohn, Zig Ziggler, and so many more, I listen to them weekly.

    I like what Ziggler says Motivation may only last a short while, but so does showering, do it daily and you'll be smelling great!

  2. No problem! I quite enjoy your blog. Good layout and GREAT content!

  3. While I appreciate that comment more than you know, I don't necessarily like this layout. I am working on something new. I'd like something much better - look/layout/design-wise for this blog, since I hold it so near and dear to me!

    Thanks again! All my best!
