It’s a new month and I’m starting a new series. My intent is to brighten your Monday with some motivation.
For now, I’m going to call these jeff-isms. My good friend and prolific blogger jeff noel has a podcast along with his good friend Jody Maberry.
I don’t know if jeff is the author of any of these sayings and he would be the first to steer you in the right direction of their origin.
With this new series, today’s thoughts for Motivation Monday center around . . . well, motivation.
“Nobody is in charge of your motivation. Do it for someone else. Find 1,000,000 ways to stay motivated.” jeff noel
Motivation can come from someone else, but it is almost always short lived, like a spark with no kindling. Have you ever lit a fire from a spark? Boy Scouts know how to do that and like most boys, it’s really cool to watch. But if you blow too hard, or don’t have the right kind of kindling, what happens? Nothing. If you rush the process you’ll probably sabotage your own efforts.
It’s a series of small accomplishments that are the sparks that fuel the fire of reaching our goals. So don’t give up on your dreams. Remember why you started them in the first place.Tweet
