Picture this…It’s Monday morning. You’re laying in bed with the warm sun beating down on your face. The alarm beeps and instead of feeling sluggish and reaching for the snooze button, you actually swing your legs over, plant your rise with vibrant energy, ready to tackle the day and turn your to do list into your done list!
What if you woke up like that most days instead of random days so far and few between you can’t remember in this moment when the last one was. Wouldn’t that be awesome? Well, it’s 100% possible.
In today’s Thought Provoking Tuesday, TPT, I’m sharing some motivational knowledge with you.
Motivation needs to be cared for and nurtured… it takes hard work, dedication with a splash of discipline.
Or in other words, motivation is what gets you started, commitment and discipline is what keeps you going.
There are easy ways to help keep a steady flow of motivation running through your veins and it starts before your head hits the pillow each night.
First up. The night before.
Each night, before you go to bed, as my client’s can attest, I highly recommend thinking about and celebrating at least 3 things that you created or accomplished that day – big or small. ( For me when I started doing this exercise, the first few days I celebrated the fact that I was actually pausing to even think about this, let alone acknowledge and celebrate what I accomplished – usually I was just beating myself up over what I didn’t do before I crashed for the night).
To really enforce this concept, journaling these celebrations on a daily basis is recommended.
Not only does it benefit you today, it gives you something to look back on for days/week/months/years to come.
And as I studied this years ago, I learned there have actually been scientific studies done to reflect that your last thoughts before sleeping are what set the energetic tone for the next morning. I don’t know about you, as for me, I totally want to be doing what I can to set me up for fantastic days that I rinse and repeat day after day……and that is sooo much easier when you start the day with energetic vibrations that aren’t working against you. 😉
Next up. The morning.
Before your feet hit the floor as you hop out of bed, spend a few minutes thinking about at least 3 things that you are grateful for in your life (health, relationships, finance, fitness, family, friends, business, clients and otherwise).
Better idea, write them down.
What specifically do you want to be celebrating tonight that you created or accomplished today? Don’t forget to write it down.
This is a way to really empower you to BE the person that creates the day you actually want to experience. During this quick, self-motivational session make sure to speak positively to yourself – coming from abundance and rooted in what is possible. This is a perfect way to set the right tone for your day and gives you the positive energy to achieve those daily goals and intentions you set in motion. You know what’s coming now, right? … your homework.
Starting tonight I want you to put these easy tips to good use. Allow yourself to feed upon the evening and morning motivation and go after the rest of the day with clarity, confidence and tenacity! Try it and let me know how it goes. Or if you have a tried and true method for getting motivated each day share that with me on my Business Page.
