Last fall I wrote a piece about how to be inspired and motivated. The words are no less true today.
And I’ve yet to find someone better at inspiring ourselves than – ourselves. We are, our own best motivators. The one who decides how we’re going to feel about the new day ahead. The one that lays down at night reliving the happenings of the day. That’s You!
And while you may not be the catalyst for positive change, I guarantee, you are the one that decides what “lights your fire” or what “puts it out”.
There is a key here, something to think on. No one just leaps out of bed, happy with the world everyday, thinking all things are wonderful and then goes out and wins all the time. Well nobody I know anyway.
But many understand what is needed and set about searching for that which will influence and motivate them towards a positive mindset. That could be you!
Make life a mission for finding those things (catalysts) that will motivate you!
Each person’s quest in life becomes either finding the motivation to make things happen or coming up with excuses for why things won’t.
The more you wake up looking for potentials, the easier it is to find possibilities. The more you move forward, the more you believe in yourself. And yes even through your failures, you know what to get right the next time you try.
It has always been about you – you know! You are your greatest motivator!

There is a phase of motivation and depression in a people’s life. Isn’t it, Penny?
This is true, and sometimes we can use a little assistance on some of those days Yoshiko, to stay motivated. That’s what friends are for … my friend! 🙂 xx
If we cannot be our own self-motivators, how can we expect to be motivated by outside forces? No better source than from within one’s own self! This post is wisdom-wise for sure, Penny!
Hi Sharla, thank you my friend! 🙂 xx
AnElephantCant get up every morning
Without a smile and a cheery bonjour
Because as you well know
He likes to give it a go
And treat every day like a new adventure
Yes, I do know, most especially since he now is in the beautiful locale of his desire! 🙂 xl
I guess we are our best motivators. Having others to root for us sure helps out a lot though.

You always manage to lift my spirits RoSy, thank you! 🙂 xo
Yes Penny – it all starts with “Self” …I truly believe this. If we do anything for any other reason then because or deepest/truest self calls us to – there is always a disconnect – a malalignment of sorts. Excellent post — much appreciate dearest dear friend ~ x Love to you – Robyn
Hello Robyn, I like the way you worded that! Yes exactly so! Thank you dearest friend, hope your weekend was relaxing, restful, but fun too! Much love, xo
it always starts “at home…” -home being our own self.

Thank you Sunshine. It was time for a change, I am so pleased you like it, my friend! 🙂
With that little voice in our head “you can do it” then we can. As long we ignore the one that says “no you can’t”
So very true my friend! 🙂 xx
