It’s Been a Week – or a Couple of Weeks

Every week, I SWEAR that I am going to blog every day, and every week it never happens.  Sometimes life gets crazy, and sometimes, despite posting a positive quote every day, I just don’t have anything to say.  I love to write, and I love to create, but I seem to lack the motivation.  It’s something I need to work on, and I don’t think it’s something I’m alone in.  Being motivated, and finding motivation can be a challenge.  It has to come from within.  Sure you can have a task you have to get completed for work or school, and you get it done, but is that motivation  internal (is it coming from you) or is it fear of what your boss might say or what your report card will look like?

It’s something I’ve been giving a lot of thought, lately.  How do you tell if motivation is internal or external, and if one is better or worse than the other.  Here’s what I’ve come up with….when you’re doing it because you want to or when you take pride in the final results, the motivation is internal.  Let me explain….think about that thesis paper that you had to write for class, or the report you had to do for work.  When you did it, did the work feel good, and feel write, and just flow from you?  If you can answer yes, that is because you were internally motivated.  If you got it done because it had to be done, and it was expected, and yeah you did okay on it, then your motivation was probably external.  That’s how I’m seeing it, at least.

I go to the gym, and I’ve been doing pretty well, going daily.  I’m not seeing much progress, and I hate it – but I’m going….external motivation because logically, I know it’s good for me and it needs to be done.  But it’s a chore – trust me, it’s a big chore.  I’m hoping to get to the stage where the motivation is internal.  I’m thinking that may happen when I start to see some results – hopefully soon!

Another tricky thing is time and effort.  Sometimes your motivation can change from external to internal just by doing something.  Take for example this blog post.  I was feeling incredibly guilty about not blogging anything in a couple of weeks, so I uploaded some images of the Daily Positive Thoughts that I share on twitter and instagram (and the ones I’m SUPPOSED to be blogging about on a daily basis) and I was just going to share them with a little oopsie I’m sorry I haven’t blogged post.  That was external with guilt being the primary motivator.  Don’t get me wrong, sometimes guilt can be an awesome motivator – think back to mom getting you to get your chores done lol, but it’s not the best one.  Anyhow, when I started writing, the words just started flowing and the motivation changed from external (guilt) to internal (wanting to do a good job for me).  However guild cannot be a primary motivator, but sometimes it gets you going and the motivation can change.

So when you have a task to get done, and you’re lacking the motivation…try and think about why and what your motivation for getting the task done are…then try and find a way to make that motivation internal if it is in fact external.  And if you can’t get everything done, don’t sweat it, pick one thing, get it done and move on to the next task.  You don’t have to be perfect and you don’t have to do everything perfectly you just have to do your best.

Manifesting What you REALLY Want! – The Secret BEHIND The Secret


It’s not too often that I can actually say I am blown away by a video I watched online, but this really impressed me:

–> Check them out here

Like many of you, I have been struggling for years to make the Law of Attraction work for me, not knowing that I was actually going about using it THE WRONG WAY!

You see, the key to using the Law of Attraction, and being able to manifest what you want and desire, is the proper use of visualization. The fact is, many people can’t properly visualize and create an emotional connection to what they are seeing. All that has now changed thanks to “Abundant Mind

Abundant Mind is being called “The Netflix of Subliminal Manifestation” because it contains a massive library of powerful, full motion, high resolution visualization videos that can be streamed on any internet connected device.

Unlike the visualization videos that already exist on the market, these are vastly superior because they use FIVE scientifically proven subconscious altering techniques. By using full motion themed video (not still images), a special audio track, affirmations, subliminal messages and binaural beats, these videos will completely change how you visualize and respond emotionally to visualizations. This could literally be the secret behind “The Secret”.

I have been using these for the last few days and I’m already seeing a difference. I highly recommend you take a few minutes out of your day to check out this phenomenal connection of visualization videos.

A New Year a New Outlook

This is NOT going to be one of those look back over the past year type of posts.  I could do that, but I figure just about everybody in the bloggerverse is doing that, and I’m a rebel.

2011 was a rough year for a lot of people, myself included, and I see no point in in reliving it.  It’s time to move forward, and move forward with purpose, drive, determination and joy.  Joy?  Yes, joy.  Because great things are going to happen in 2012. Great, wonderful and amazing things.

Set your goals in your mind, and see yourself achieving them.  Do this every day.  Develop a plan, and take baby steps toward that goal.   Just keep reminding yourself that every day in every way you are a unique and incredible individual filled with love and light!

Have a wonderful and prosperous 2012 and stay positive!
