Dig Deep for Motivation
This weekend was a tap out for me. I got a head cold and just fought through getting my work done on Saturday, and Sunday was a relax and watch movies all day kind of day. As Sunday night came to an end, I found myself seeking more motivation to make it through the next week. It’s always easy to start beating yourself up or find negative things in our daily lives.
How do we find motivation?
For me it's different all the time. People ask what are your goals and I always answer I have same 10 goals I have ad for past two years, but weekly and monthly goals are different every time. See right now everything for me is to provide for Megin and make sure she has when she need to reach her goals, and then next is a lifelong dream and goal. You see since I was a child I have dreamed of having my own sled or snowmobile or as my wife call them snow machine.
The point is when I am at the gym on the stair stepper watching sled videos. When I am tired of editing and designing and I have SledHead Magazine motivating me to work hard so I can be in that magazine this next year. You have to remind yourself daily and on some days every few hours of what you’re pushing for. I am not always the best example of motivation, rather an emotional roller coaster.
I can be on cloud 9 and then be struggling in an hour, it’s just the way it goes for me because I am an all in kind of guy. I go all in, all the time. You should see me in Monopoly or anything that gives me a chance to put it all on the line it’s all or nothing for me. Trust me, I am horrible gambler in Vegas and sometimes on the golf course because I will fight against all odds and bank on myself every time.
Talk about motivation when you go all in. There has been times when I have invested all I have into equipment, or into bills and other things. Sacrifice food or things that I could cut back just to make an educated risk. Motivation is a funny thing, we have to find it all different times in our lives. We have got to find it when everything is good and life is running smooth. We have to find it when things are bad and it would be easier to tap out and just quit. No matter what time it is, you have dig deep q to find that why and push.
We can never know our true potential until we push through the limits of our abilities and capture something that has never been felt, seen, or achieved before. We control our success.
Hope everyone has an awesome because it's the start of new day, and new week!
