Motivation is a funny thing. You get motivated – it helps you get things done. You get through things and feel a sense of accomplishment. But what about when it’s a lot of things, or a big thing, or something that takes a long time. Like this blog – what if it is all kinds of life changes you want to make. So, how do you stay inspired? How do you stay motivated? I almost forgot why I was doing this blog. I mean, it’s nice to share with everyone. It’s nice to get comments. It’s nice to have a place to vent a bit. But this blog was made to motivate me. It was made for me – to inspire me to make the changes I wanted to make in my life. I kind of forgot that and lost my motivation. But, the key to that is to realize I’m not motivated and use this blog to re-motivate me! So, today, I went back and re-read my blog. I re-read my ideas, my thoughts, my goals. And it did what it was suppose to do – it re-motivated me. It got me back into a frame of mind with forward motion. Get busy living, or get busy dying.
So, it’s a bright new day. The sun is shining. The day is new. And I’m on a mission. Don’t just say – do! I created a different kind of goal list today. It takes each of my goals I want to work on right now, breaks it into smaller bites. Steps for each one – but it also is putting a face, a name, and a DATE to it. The date is important. It’s easy to say – yup, that’s what I’m going to do. But no accountability. The date keeps me honest. Now, I’m sure at some point life will rear it’s ugly head (it always does) and things will come up. But – putting a date to it keeps the forward motion going. How do you eat a whole elephant? One bite at a time. I’ve got a feast before me and it’s time to get busy. I’ve got the tools, I’ve got the skills. I’ve got the knowledge. I’ve got the support. There is no reason this should not happen. Failure is NOT acceptable. Status quo is not good enough. I’m taking names and kicking ass. I am Kimber, hear me ROAR!
