Where to find motivation

Where to find motivation

You won’t find it on a map or in a treasure chest

You won’t find it in the woods

Or over a rainbow

It won’t come to you either

Motivation you find in doing what you don’t have the motivation to start.

Say its going to the gym

You might not be motivated to go

But once your there and the more you keep going the more motivated you’ll find yourself.

You may be already living the dream

You may be already living the dream

Have you heard the story of the Mexican fisherman

A buisness man approached him and started quizzing him on his lifestyle

Then gave him buisness tips so he could build an empire over ten years

The Mexican asked what he would do after he did that

The buisness man told him he could fish for leisure, drink with friends and nap in the afternoon

Of which the Mexican was already doing
(Read the full story for it’s full effects)

Today we are hit with advertisements left right and Centre, we can’t avoid adverts

That tell us we need to do this, earn that and have this so that we can be happy or live the dream

Yet we could be the Mexican, we could already have and do everything we need,

We could already be living our dream

Dont let someone tell you what you should be doing, figure it out for yourself

You never know, you might already be there

Restarting Hurts

Restarting hurts

Restarting takes effort, it takes time to get back into the flow and making it a habit again.

I injured both my ankles during lockdown, I could barely walk let alone exercise so I rested,

Which turned into more resting and more before I knew it a couple of months had passed and I hadn’t done anything

Getting back into the gym hurt, both physically and mentally

I had to break out of the comfort of not going I have to deal with the muscle soreness

Restarting hurts

It’s easier to not quit and keep going

But it’s better than never trying again

It’s better than doing nothing

It hurts but the pain is temperamental

Or Lose The Chance

Take The Risk, Or Lose The Chance

Is a quote I see in the entrepreneur world, All over Instagram and the likes…

It implies that you need to make quick decisions and snap up whatever is in front of you right away. It makes you think that if I wait then I’m going to lose this opportunity and there will be no more.

It also rushes you into making the decision and not truly thinking through whether it is actually an opportunity or not.

Sometimes the risk you need to take is to wait.

That’s right wait, instead of snapping up the first thing that comes along.

Wait and the opportunity will arise.

Rush and what you thought was an opportunity was actually disaster in disguise.

Having good intentions

Having Good intentions

But bad effort

Anyone can have the best intentions,

The best intention to get in shape before a holiday, revise for a test, read a book, well there’s loads of examples.

Whenever I go abroad I always said I would learn the language or some of it at least,

I’ve bought audiobooks, physical books all with the best of intentions of learning it, but the effort didn’t match the intention.

It’s like having the best intentions to get in shape you buy loads of training gear, buy a ‘health magazine’, loads of healthy food,

Then grab a takeout and leave the above to collect dust.

To make traction

Our efforts need to be more than our intentions.
