Is the Sky the Limit?

Don’t allow catchy phrases to have you thinking things are impossible! Some things that seem impossible are not really impossible at all, it just depends on who you are talking to. If I believe that I am capable of doing something, I capable of trying! We repeat phrases that were designed to encourage us. However, we do so without really thinking about what we are saying. We repeat them over and over just because we heard it from someone else, and that person got a thunderous applause! Continue reading “Is the Sky the Limit?”

Motivation Monday Blues? Make Monday Amazing!

Motivation Monday Blues?

Motivation Monday is a common phrase used for help us change our mindset on the day that people perceive as the worst work day of the week. I’ve heard complaints like, “I had a great weekend, and now it’s over!” Or, “I had a terrible weekend with little rest, and now I’ve got to go back to work again!” No worries, it’s only a perception. When attempting to motivate yourself today, play mind games with yourself. Whether you know it or not, your mind is playing games with you.  Fight back by having something fun to look forward to. Instead of saying how you really feel (realizing that feelings come and go) say and think the opposite. Dismiss the dismal and look forward to something you’ve always wanted to do. Keep in mind that your sub-conscience mind is paying close attention to how you think. Why? Because it is how you think that has the most control over what you will do next.

Just so you know, I’m not trying to ruin that “Thank God It’s Friday,” thing that we have going on. On the contrary, ups and downs are necessary so that when excitement comes, we can experience it at its peak! What I am suggesting is that we change it up a little. We can still have our Friday fun, but it may be time to add another fun day to the mix. What better day to add fun to than Monday!

Would you and your co-workers like to host a Monday Morning Coffee Bar, Monday Relax Lounge, Monday Game Day, Monday Desert Day, or a Monday Ice Cream Social Day? Why wait? Since Friday is already exciting, make Monday amazing!
