Ignite the Fuse

“People are like sticks of dynamite; the power’s on the inside, but nothing happens until the fuse gets lit.”

-Mac Anderson

Hello Fellow Followers…

Today we’ll explore the subject of self motivation and some cool ways to ignite your fuse when you’re not quote on quote “feeling it”. Self-motivation has always been a fascinating topic for me to ponder, mostly due to the fact that something that seems quite simple is often complex.  Why you ask… because to motivate your self you have to know yourself and to know yourself you must take the same steps you would to build any relationship-by asking questions.

Ask your self what motivates and check out these quick tips on how to motivate yourself…

    • Give yourself permission to make a mistake– Don’t wait until you’re perfect to take on a challenge, big or small. Laugh at how bad you are at something , enjoy it and make the appropriate adjustments
    • Brainstorm-Get out a pen and write out a goal or something you want in life at the top of the page and a list of 1 to 20. Write out ideas to attain your desired goal. Do this as much as you need. INSTANT MOTIVATION J
  • Reframe your problem- Every problem has a solution and every solution has a problem… Just embrace it and begin to see the opportunities created by your problems.
