Recently, I was asked a very interesting question, “How Do You Stay Motivated”? I had not really thought about it that deeply before, but I was forced to consider the power of intention.
Life happens to everyone; there is no one-size-fit-all formula. I believe we all are doing the best we can, with the resources that are available to us. However, this doesn’t mean that we do not have control over our lives. It simply means that we can’t control everything that happens to us.
So, as I pondered over this intriguing question, that’s when it hit me. I stay motivated by passion.
When you are passionate about something, and you have a vision, this is the driving force to take action. Although, I didn’t always know the road I would end up on, it was during these times, I got to see my strength.
I have been tested many times, and although I have wanted to drop out of the race, I had to keep going until I reached the finish line.
Preparing For The Race
As I have become a bit wiser, I recognize that these events are all preparation and part of a “master” plan. Uncertainty and risks can inspire great change and innovation. As the saying goes, “no pain, no gain”. If you want something very badly, you have to give it all you’ve got. I have made certain sacrifices to lead an authentic life of passion and purpose.
Staying In Your Lane
You will fall down, and feel like giving up, but the greatest power is that you stay in your lane. I am motivated by something greater than myself. I have faith that life can truly be what you want, if you stay the course.
There have been some doubt, fear and tears, but I still keep moving forward.
Getting To The Finish Line
Even on my darkest days, I see light at the end of the tunnel. When I have felt like there is no one I can turn to, or the challenge was too hard, I have been reminded of how far I’ve already come. I think when you can look back and see what you have achieved, it is easier to remain hopeful. If you can see that you have conquered obstacles and hurdles before, you start to believe that anything is possible.
Where you are now, is not where you were yesterday and it isn’t where you will be tomorrow. Remember, you may not always win the race, but at least you were in the game.
Best & Light,
