Remind Myself of Why I am Working toward this

{Just A Thought about self-motivation #15}
Some days I wake up motivated and ready to go. And some days things feel heavy as I arise and it is hard to get going and find that inner drive.
At least in my experience.
I have found some simple and smart strategies that work for me to get back into the right groove and to get things done.
Here are some of my favorite tips and habits for doing just that.

Remind myself of why I am working toward this. When I am feeling unmotivated and low in energy it is easy to lose sight of why I am doing something. So take 2 minutes and write down my top 3 reasons for doing this work, getting a training, working out, saving that extra money, what was the story behind my CPs or something else. Put that note where I can see it every day or keep it in my notebook for easy access when I need a motivational boost.

{My Successes}

  1. My value of care, a cup of coffee, bacon sandwich and it was the delight to start my day.
  2. My value of support, I asked for support, I appreciated his input and I was grateful for his love.
  3. My value of support, I asked for support, I appreciated his care and it was great.
  4. My value of ZEN, it’s King’s day, it was quiet, relax, Netflix and life is good.
  5. My value of care, Napping is a serious business and it was so good.
  6. My value of satisfaction, it was the last thought about my self-motivation, I did what I did and I was happy to share my BS.
  7. My value of love,  I got a huge bear hug when I was home, thank you darling and my sweet baboo was the best.
  8. My value of ME, in the train I have heard this conversation between a kid and his dad, I gave them my smiles and  they inspired me to write this “20 facts about me”
