Motivational Monitor

One of the things I have made a point to do as a Beachbody coach was to motivate myself, is workout, eat properly, hydrate, take vitamins, get enough sleep, and take care of myself - in the hopes that by doing so, I will be able to inspire by example. I've heard that many times in life. So instead of "thinking" it, why not BE an example.

Here's something that came across my desk today in the mail. It's a 2010 monthly planning guide with a "motivational monitor". Every month has a motivational comment or message. Now, if you've seen the motivational posters that were displayed all over in corporate offices, businesses, sometimes in a person's home, you'll know the ones that I mean.

They are (and yes, there are 12):

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare tha they are difficult.

Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties appear and obstacles vanish into air.

Experience is not what happens to you; it is what you do with what happens to you.

The perfecting of one's self is the fundamental base of all progress and all moral development.

Let each day be your masterpiece.

Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and thru the thrill of creative effort.

Distance has the same effect on the mind as on the eye.

If you only look at what is, you might never attain what could be.

Your treasure house is within; it contains all you'll ever need.

In deep meditation the flow of concentration is continuous like the flow of oil.

Outstanding leaders appeal to the hearts of their followers - not their minds.

You will never reach the top without the determination inspired by your goals.

I love the last one because it's so true. Each one of these is reflectant upon the other. You need a vision to establish goals, once you establish goals you can reflect upon them,

Once we have a vision in our mind of what we want to achieve, we can set goals. Through determination and courage, we will grow as an individual. The beauty of this achievement and development is the perspective we gain on our life and on the lives of others. As we reflect on our experience, we inspire others through our achievements. We are leaders, and we inspire these goals in others, hoping they will do the same. We meditate and concentrate to focus and pursue our next task, our next challenge, and continuously pursue the next level.

Have a fantastic day!
