Mellow Mondays: Motivation

What motivates you?  What pushes you to go the extra mile? What makes you jump out of bed in the morning?  How do you motivation others?  Do you have several sources of motivation?

Our challenge this week talks about what motivates us as individuals.  I have various sources of motivation.  My main source of motivation is my family.  I want to continue to build the legacy that has before me has set.  I always think of how my actions will reflect on my parents.  And I want to sure that everything I do make them proud; especially with all the sacrifices they have made so I can have the finer things in life.

I am also motivated by the naysayers.  Nothing beats the naysayers by doing your best to kill the negative talk.  Now I do not allow their opinions to dictate my life but I do allow my actions to show that I can rise above and do my very best.

Now sometimes you have to self motivate yourself in order to rise above.  You may need your friends to cheerleader for you.  You might have to turn on some gospel music.  You may have to play some Lil John and the Eastside Boys to amp yourself up (that takes me back to freshman year in college). Whatever you have to do make sure you do knowing that the end result will be great. Don’t allow limits to control your life.  At the end of the day it’s your life and your happiness is all that matters
