“If you can dream it, you can do it.” Walt Disney
What MOTIVATES You to get out of bed in the morning? Are You Honoring Your Gifts?
What MOTIVATES You? When we come across people whose life work stays evergreen, like Walt Disney, it’s easy to forget their circuitous route or personal struggles to get to that place of public recognition. Think of people in your life whose motivation inspired you, and consider what qualities it takes to stay motivated and achieve our dreams. One thing I know for sure is that age is not a barrier to success or personal growth. Another thing I know for sure is that we all have our own definitions of success.
What does SUCCESS mean to You? For some it’s money, for others it might be personal growth, family, love or health. Whatever your vision of success might be, do your best to stay on that path and don’t be swayed by the flash and hype in the world. As long as you find contentment in what makes you happy, you have achieved something of great value. A lot of people are unhappy or dissatisfied because their desires exceed their reality. There is nothing wrong with having desires or goals but, while working towards them, be content and grateful with what you already have. The road to peace and success begins with a spirit of gratitude, contentment and effort. Stay Motivated!
