Motivation is not your friend.

Motivation is not your friend.

If you only wait for motivation to get going then you won’t get very far.

You are never going to find enough motivation to start something completely new,

And if you do it will be hard to get it to stick around once it does show up.

Motivation isn’t a very good freind.

It’s like the one friend who appears after all the chaos has ended and the waters have settled

Don’t rely on that friend

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.

Until death, it is all life

Until death, it is all life

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

And it’s not always going to be plain sailing,
There is going to be stormy seas
Rough currents
And high rocks to navigate through

We may get a few calm seas and clear skies

But life is a mixture of all the above.

Facing the tough currents, stormy seas and rocky patches mean your living and you may think that they are bad things, but as we sail through life, they are the things that improve your sailing skills, not the calm seas.

Bad chapters can still create great stories

Bad chapters can still create great stories

  • Cynthia Thurlow

Real life isn’t a movie or a book so that magical ending isn’t going to automatically happen,

But if you keep pushing through your struggles, through the hard times

Then you can turn this bad chapter into a great story but not if you settle this chapter for the ending.

Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers

So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

Veronica Shoffstall

No one is responsible for your happiness,
Nobody
And your not responsible for anyone else’s

No one is responsible for your growth
No one is responsible for your career
No one is responsible for the actions you take, or dont take

Stop waiting for other people to solve your problems,
Stop blaming other people,

Just get out there and tend to your garden and watch what happens

It’s all on you.
