What gets you motivated for the week ahead? Do you like to have a plan in place, or a goal to accomplish? Do you like to fill your thoughts with positive vibes? Or have your cup of strong coffee?
I like to do a bit of it all, but I think it is extra important to keep yourself motivated all week long, grabbing inspiration from wherever suits your goals at the time. This Monday I find myself overwhelmed by change.
Change is an interesting concept, and in the middle of a transformation, it can be both beautiful and terrifying. Change is all around us all the time. But the hardest kind of change for me to understand is the change from within. Not the natural kind that happens over a long period, where one day you look back and say “oh how I have changed”. No that to me is growth.
The kind of change I mean is pushing you in a direction that does not come naturally to you. It is opening your mind to perspectives that you do not normally see and then broadening those perspectives so that your instincts change. Change is looking at old habits and making the choice to change them and improve them for the person you want to be tomorrow.
Regardless of your reasons to create change in your life, I think we all feel the same regarding the process. It is hard, very hard and messy.
If you are in the middle of making some changes in your life, then please let this Monday serve as a reminder of the blank slate that is in front of you. Cling to the words and thoughts that inspire you.
Here are some quotes that inspire and motivate me on my own path of change.
