Motivational Monday: November 19, 2012

For those of you who are new to Motivational Mondays...
It doesn't matter who you are, everyone needs a little motivation in their lives.   Motivation helps us to stay focused, increase our confidence, and aspire us to achieve our goals.  It also nurtures us and helps us to keep going when the going gets tough.  Most people are just too busy dealing with their daily lives to be bothered with self-motivation; so, allow me to provide a little external motivation for you.

For my faithful followers...welcome back.

This week's motivational quote is
dedicated to anyone out there going through some sort of struggle, whether it be physical, emotional, financial, etc.  If this describes where you are in your life right now, please hang on.  You can borrow my personal mantra 'Never Surrender' for as long as you need it.  I am also dedicating today's quote to AmyJo, one of my newest followers, who could do with a little extra boost of encouragement.

Even if you are not struggling, odds are you know someone who is.  Maybe a card made with this sentiment might just brighten their day and help inspire them to keep trying and not give up.

If you use the quote for the front of a card, you might want to pair it up with this for the inside:

 Have a good week everyone and I hope that you all manage to stay motivated throughout it.

Thank you Lisa for these wonderful quotes. I can think of many occasions that these are perfect for. My daughter has a habit of giving up on school subjects, sports, etc when they get difficult - the first one would be good for those situations. Thank you very much for also including the second quote which would suit personal struggles really well.

This part of your blog is the most inspirational part of it. You not only find the right words in just your own way of saying things ... your "quotes" will reach someone out there that really needs that encouragment in their lives. You are a motivational speaker and we need this in our world. I am so glad that I found you. Hugs, Sue
