Internal motivation is key.
Even if you work with a top class coach, take productivity classes but still feel demotivated, all your effort might not yield desired results.
The books you read, podcasts you listen to and the bootcamps you attend are available to complement your internal motivation. They are highly effective only if you channel your inner energy and get ready to take the bull by the horns.
It is undeniable that there are moments when you might feel overwhelmed and the desire to keep working might just die. This is why you need to constantly identify what drives you. Your driving factor today might not be very motivating tomorrow. So you need a reminder to keep you on track, that no matter what you will always forge ahead, while remaining positive.
Read my pin of healthy vows and positive vibes below. I hope it inspires you.
1. Good things will always come my way
You need this affirmation every morning to help you appreciate nature and the good things that God gives to you free of charge.
2. I will reap the fruits of my labor
This mindset will make you to always look forward to keep working on what you started till you get the desired results.
3. I have the power to say no to procrastination
When you want to postpone that little task till tomorrow, remember you have the power to do it NOW.
4. I can and I will
Who says you cannot achieve what you set your mind on? Let them know that you can and you will. You just need to take that step today, now matter how minute. Just start it. Do you want to lose weight? Or start a business? Or attend business events for networking opportunities? Or you just want to adopt an organic lifestyle. You can do it and you will do it.
5. The Lord will not burden me beyond my scope
In the book of my faith, God says “And, behold, with every hardship comes ease”. He also says “He does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity”. So why do you want to despair? Just BELIEVE.
6. Others opinion of me is not my reality, I know who I am
People will always talk about you. And you know what? They will not always say positive things about you. Do you want to be bothered? Please don’t. You matter and you are making impacts, that is why people can spare time to talk about you. But you, aren’t you too busy covering grounds to bother about what people choose to spend their time on?
7. I will accept my failures as lessons and always look ahead
Whatever your blues, don’t hold a pity party – Toyin Adekola (yes, I quote too :))
If you’re not careful, you can fall into a destructive cycle of self-pity – Victoria Osteen
Self-pity is never useful. It tends to distort like a fun-house mirror – Anne Roiphe
Really, no one is above mistake. But be careful not to let your mistake turn you into a mess. Accept your failures as fast as you realized you’ve made one. Identify what you did wrong, and promise yourself to do better next time.
8. I will smile always because I know it is good for my health
Yes, smiling is good for your health and it also boosts your brain power. Moreso, it is free. So why not smile? Sadness be gone.
9. I will make healthy food choices always
Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food – Hippocrates
If you don’t take care of your body, where are you going to live? – Unknown
You need to eat healthy to function properly and be productive. Good food improves your physical, emotional and mental states. So always make healthy food choices.
10. I will ask for help when I feel overwhelmed
This sums it all up. If you ever feel overwhelmed either by the things you have to do or emotionally, please, please and please, do not hesitate to ask for help. A problem shared is half solved. Always be willing to open up and be ready to accept helping hands when they are stretched towards you.
To your positive energy, cheers!!
