Challenge your motivation

We’ve probably all had days where we’re less than motivated. Perhaps on those less than motivational days, we may challenge our less than positive behaviour.

The following should help:

  • When something is too difficult or we’re doing something that is out of our depth, it’s very easy to lose motivation. It is important to be clear on what we’re about to embark on, so that we understand the challenges ahead;

Life’s journey

Any great journey starts with one small step. As a child, I wasn’t aware life was a journey at all. I never stopped to question my life, or why I had mental, emotional or physical difficulties, or what that bigger picture was. All I knew was that physically it was something I had that my siblings didn’t.

When anyone takes a first step, it’s an achievement. Progress happens, then we begin the little steps. But so many opportunities are missed because we don’t see, understand or read the signs. We should have …

Our intuitive guide

I’m not sure as a child I understood what intuition was, but now I know I use it as my guide. As a child with intuition, I would have had the chance to focus, without continually looking back on non-achievements negatively.

Uniqueness and change

Something inspirational:

“A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose. It doesn’t have to. It is different. And there’s room in the garden for every flower.

They’re all different …

Discretion & straight talking

Telling people what they want to hear, rather than what they need to hear may not always be the best move. Telling someone what they want to hear shouldn’t be confused with telling them what they need to hear.

For some, it may not only make their situation worse, for others it may interfere with their relationship. Although someone may be disappointed by what you’re telling them, others may become disillusioned …

A quiet mind

As a child when I mentally struggled, I would revert inside my mind. In a way it saved the frustrations, as I had a lot of quiet time on my own.

I have learned it is more important to let go of the issues I have no control over. I find it a little more difficult with the bigger things. But with the little things I am able to switch off and walk away from those …
