Welcome to 31 Days to Stay Motivated!
I’m so excited for you to journey with me on this month long challenge of staying motivated through our adventures, dreams and pursuits. If you are like me, there are probably lists of projects and resolutions enthusiastically begun and abandoned simply because the energy it took to stay motivated eventually dwindled. And you never had the opportunity to experience the joy of success which once captivated your heart because you gave up.
Thomas Edison said, “Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”
Why the 31 Day Challenge to Stay Motivated? It’s simple…I want to make a difference…in your life and in my own. I’m not a fly by the seat of your pants kind of girl. I’m a planner, a doer, a teambuilder, and I believe in living with intention. But far too often, my greatest obstacle to success is myself.
We are probably very much alike, because we are part of the human race. We fall short of success because we give up too soon. We have trouble enjoying the journey because we focus on the pain. And we spend far too much time looking back instead of focusing on what lies ahead.
We wrestle with fear.
We give ear to doubt.
We recoil from pain.
We tire of the demands.
We lose sight of the big picture.
We deny our own becoming.
“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.”~Henry David Thoreau
Perhaps you’ve just begun a new challenge, or you are smack in the middle of one, and the road ahead looks hazy, rugged and difficult. Whatever mile-marker you find yourself stalling near, this is the place to come. Here is where you’ll be encouraged, refreshed and motivated.
Here is where you can leave comments and share about your challenge, the struggles you are facing through the pursuit and the inspiring ways you are overcoming obstacles to ensure you get that much closer to your dream.
And as we share this month-long journey, together we will experience support, strength and success because we didn’t just get motivated….we woke up each day, and we stayed motivated!
Are you ready?
What adventure or challenge have you begun?
What road marker is causing you to stall?
Can you put into words what the big picture look like?
Each year one of my favorite bloggers, Myquillin Smith – “The Nester” – of The Nesting Place hosts a 31 day challenge in October to encourage bloggers to write each day and link up with other bloggers and promote the blogging community.
