This is a great time of the year to use motivational ideas to renew your vigor and energy! Make sure to take some time to reflect on what is and what is not working in your professional or personal life. Hopefully, the 2 motivational ideas below will help you get you started!
Motivational Ideas #1 to Renew Your Vigor and Energy
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe-German poet, scientist, and statesman said, “We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise, we harden.”
I’m sure that you know people who are bored, depressed or stuck in a rut. A good indication is when you ask someone how they are doing and in a dull voice, they say, “Oh you know, the same old life.” Make sure that this isn’t you, and if it is, decide what you need to do immediately to change this mindset! It can be as easy as reading an uplifting book or going to the movies to enjoy your favorite actor’s talent.
Movement is my middle name. I recently purchased a desk where I can sit or stand. It has made a difference in how I feel. As many of you know, bike riding is one of my favorite things to do during all the MI seasons except the winter. There is a great tool that makes my bike stationary and I can ride during the winter in the basement. Movement is something that most of my coaching clients hear me discuss because the benefits are impressive.
Here’s my first question for you:
What have you done or need to do to change, renew, and rejuvenate yourself?
Motivational Ideas #2 to Renew Your Vigor and Energy
I recently saw an ad on TV and wrote it down immediately. “Five o’clock meetings come and go. First home runs last forever.”
My son told me years ago, “Mom, we make time for the things we really want to do.” This hit home when I was going in circles during a busy time in my career. I told him how frustrated I was that I couldn’t do all the things that I wanted to do or spend time with my friends. His strong message was timely. I thought about the things that were important to me and at that moment made some changes. I was blinded by my busy schedule and didn’t see that I had choices on how I could spend my precious hours during that busy part of my life. Setting boundaries is a message that I now share with all of my clients.
Here’s my 2nd question for you:
What is a personal boundary that you need to set for yourself to make sure that you make time to do the things that you want to do?
Let’s Get Real About These 2 Motivational Ideas!
I realize that these 2 ideas are obvious and very basic. I also know that at times we need to return to the basics to make changes in our life. Take some time to reflect and ask yourself the 2 questions.
1. What have you done or need to do to change, renew, and rejuvenate yourself?
2. What is a personal boundary that you need to set for yourself to make sure that you make time to do the things that you want to do?
