Good morning on this wonderful Spring day! After that long and grueling winter I’m thrilled to wake up every day to decently warm weather. In my opinion, spring rain is better than snow any day!
I am starting this series called Motivational Mondays! What better way to start out the week than with a quote to make you want to hit the ground running?!
So let’s kick-start this with a quote from a Doctor we all know and love…yes, Dr. Seuss! Although he created children’s books, I have found that many of his quotes are applicable for adults as well.
I heard this quote a couple weeks ago from Terri Savelle Foy when she was giving a talk about achieving your dreams. It was after this speech that I knew I HAD to sign up to start a blog as soon as possible! The main topic of her discussion was around the acronym D.R.I.V.E.:
D: Decision- Decide you are going to commit to yourself to strive for what you desire in life
R: Routine- “People are rewarded in public for what they practice in private”
I: Investment- “Much is required in order for much to be given”
V: Vision- “Vision is what takes you from where you are to where you want to be”
E: Everything- “Never give up”
It made me realize that in order to get where I want to go in life, I have to be self-motivated and work hard because no one else will do it for me. We are where we are at in life because of ourselves, so if we want to move ahead, we need to get our butt moving and work harder! Success isn’t just handed out.
Is there anything you dream about that is eating at you to start working toward? I highly recommend reading her short post about achieving your dreams!
Check back every Monday for more motivating quotes to help inspire you to pursue your dreams!
Have a FABULOUS Monday! (:
