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!

If you’ve received this email too late and Monday is almost over, guess what? It will return, so go ahead and start planning to do something amazing, next Monday!

When Networking Feels Like Speed Dating!

Are you a bit shy when it comes to meeting new people? Do you have a lot to say, but seem to stutter when it comes to actually saying it? You are not alone! Networking can be very stressful. And like speed dating, you don’t have a lot of time to make a good impression. We say, “just relax, it’s not a date!” But, if you can’t relax, here are some tips to help you become a little more comfortable at your next networking event: Continue reading “When Networking Feels Like Speed Dating!”

Networking is NOT Just for Job Seekers

When motivating job seekers, I’m an advocate of advising you to, “get it together, prepare for the worst, get back up, and try again.” Yet, even a golf ball hangs low after being hit so many times! Many social media sites have users who share motivation and encouragement; yet, “Motivation Monday” may not be enough to get you up moving again. Only YOU know your limits. When it’s time to re-charge, re-vamp, or renew, do it! Get on the computer, find a support group near you, and get out of the house! Continue reading “Networking is NOT Just for Job Seekers”
