Keep the ball rolling..



It's one thing to get motivated, it's another to STAY motivated! I came across a link for @picsiechick on twitter to a "coach" blog CLICK HERE On that blog was a list of 10 ways to stay motivated.. all of which rang pretty true!

  • Condition your mind. Train yourself to think positive thoughts.
  • Condition your body. It takes physical energy to take action.
  • Avoid negative people. Don’t take anything that they say seriously.
  • Always remain flexible. No plan should be cast in concrete.
  • Act with a higher purpose. If it doesn’t serve your goal, it’s wasted effort.
  • Take responsibility for your own results. Don’t credit luck, good or bad.
  • Stretch past your limits on a daily basis. That’s how you grow and evolve.
  • Don’t wait for perfection; do it now! Perfection’s the enemy of good enough.
  • Be careful of what you eat. It takes physical energy to succeed.
  • Hang around motivated people. The positive energy will rub off on you.
I'm going to add one more to the list, it's always more fun to go to 11! Sorry sometimes you just can't help but to go for the Spinal Tap reference! My additional might seem a touch odd...

  • Organize one thing every day. Your pen cup at work, your utensil drawer in the kitchen your bedroom closet or sock drawer. Thus everyday you accomplish something, and over time those accomplishments add up, and it feels pretty darn good.
