Monday Motivation Series

Welcome to my Monday Motivation series part four.

While doing some research for today’s blog post, I came across a few interesting ones which pose the argument of not motivating others.

Sounds a bit harsh to me. That was until I started to read a few of them. One article that stood out to me is written by Dr. Carolyn Morgan, Carol Morgan has a Ph.D. in communication and is a professor at Wright State University. Her insight intrigued my interest in researching this topic further.

In this article, You Can’t Motivate Other People So Don’t Even Try!
She begins by pointing out that inspiring others is a good thing, however, some people can’t or don’t want to be inspired, motivated, or encouraged period!

If motivating people implies action and inspiring implies that you have moved them mentally or emotionally in some way. Then which one is better?

Changing the world around us can be done one small step at a time. Is it worth it?

I hope you will read Dr. Carolyn Morgan’s article and give some feedback to both myself and her.

Welcome to Part Three of my Monday Motivation Series.

How have you liked or disliked it so far? I would love your feedback, so please leave me a star or comment.

Today I wanted to take you back to an article I wrote a few years ago titled Move That Mountain That Is In Front Of You. There’s one portion that talks about what it takes to keep motivated.

“We must take the time to prepare our minds for success. Be willing to attend training, conventions, webinars, podcasts, skyping, and so forth.
Developing the skills necessary to become successful doesn’t happen overnight”.

Finding the time to develop the necessary skills can feel overwhelming in itself. Working a full-time or part-time job, raising a family, appointments, etc, hardly leaves a person time to do anything for themselves.

I’ve found that I must make the time to keep my interest up with things to motivate myself.

Using a motivational planner might aid with keeping track of projects, time management and more.

Amazon Motivational Planner is a good tool to use. They have many to choose from.

I’m not perfect and I’ve let myself down in this area to keep myself motivated. I promise from here on out to do better and make a commitment to do one activity a day to move into gaining success.

Welcome to Monday!

Part two of my Monday Motivation Series. Today I want to share with you some motivational quotes that I found on Goodreads.com.

“Believe in yourself. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and capable of more than you imagine”. Roy T. Bennett,Β The Light in the Heart

“Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart”. Roy T. Bennett,Β The Light in the Heart

This is one of my favorites. Probably because we all go through the “bullshit” to gain success and stay at the top of our game.

“The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it”. Jordan Belfort

I believe that a person’s mindset contributes to how successful they become.

What motivates you to keep moving forward?

Monday Motivation

Welcome to my new series named, Monday Motivation.

Mondays should be all about motivating ourselves for having a positive outlook and outcome for the week.

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines the word Motivation as 1. the act or process of motivating. 2. a motivating force, stimulus, or influenceINCENTIVEDRIVE.

In one of my previous blog posts titled Move That Mountain, I talk about the things we do today to change negative habits that will be reflected in our attitudes, speech, postures, and business.

How do you prepare yourself for the day? Are you mentally pumping yourself up?

My goal in writing this series will be to explore new ways of helping to boost your morale and mine. Finding alternative ways to change negative mindsets over to positive ones.

Please join me in this journey for the next few weeks.

What Is Labor Day Really About?

What is Labor Day Really about?

According to Wikipedia Labor Day is a Federal Holiday on the first Monday in September to honor and recognize the American Labor Movement and the contribution of laborers that helped to make America great.

Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer. The three day weekend is packed full of barbeques, parades, swimming in a lake, or local pool, baseball games and the end of summer trips.

For more information on the history and the founders of Labor Day you can read this article by the US Department of Labor. (I figure why reinvent the wheel when it’s already been discovered).

I’m keeping this one short today because I can and I don’t work on Labor Day. Ha ha πŸ˜‚

Have a safe and happy Labor Day.

Happy Mother’s Day 2022

My original article was in 2017. I did a revision in 2020 . Trying to piece together what makes a great mother can be challenging.

Sure we can take this one day of the year to celebrate our Mothers and Grandmother’s, or we could tell them all year long how much we love and care for them.

Every Mother is like a Flower. Each one is Beautiful and Unique.

Even pet Mom’s need love to. If your a pet mom this is for you also.

I hope you enjoy your day with family or by yourself, if that’s what you choose. Me, I will be going with the flow at whatever comes my way.

Happy Mother’s Day 🌼🌹🌼

Sometimes!

Merriam – Webster defines the word sometimes as an adverb, meaning at times, now and then or occasionally.

Sometimes I really want to work for myself and answer to no one else but me. Other times, I’m stuck in the vortex of having a nine to five and doing what I’m asked to do. I’ve tried Network Marketing with many different companies. Unfortunately for me, they all ended up a bust.

So what’s an alternative choice?

I wrote a book titled, “Terror In The North Tower” which I am very proud of for my accomplishment. Due to financial reasons, I chose to self-publish my book. I will admit that I haven’t been very great about promoting it and really hitting a high sales goal.

I will never forget the feeling I had when the book was shipped to me. I was so excited to see the actual words in print! I haven’t had too many sales since 2016. I blame myself for not digging in and making it a priority.

However, I’m more determined at this point in my life to start promoting it more and work on writing the sequel to it. Many people have asked me, “Alicia, why haven’t you written the second part of your book”? I I have no excuses. I just haven’t sat down to start writing it.

I Just Have No Motivation

I just have no motivation lately when it comes to blogging. Just look at my last posting. It was back on November 21, 2021.

Who does this if they’re really serious? I want to write. Really I do.

However it’s coming up with interesting content to keep people interested.

I have been following different things in the news, and keep certain things on my Telegram channel. My channel is geared towards Political, Truth, Q, Anon and all things Quantum.

Is this why I haven’t been writing here?

It could be. I apologize to my readers for not being here routinely.

Leave a comment please on what you want to read more of.
