The garden of your mind has to be regularly pruned of all demotivations, watered generously with determination and fed with the sun of your smile, for negativity, like weeds crop up unannounced, multiplying if left unchecked. The human heart like a child has to be spoon fed with positive reaffirmations, for it breaks down too often; from the ocean of self philosophy here are four stilts your frail heart can stand upon.
• Counting the small stars – Celebrate every little success, trivial blessings and rejoice in the smallest joy – this way your heart is constantly in a state of happy dance. Enjoy every effort you do towards your destination and feel victorious on every little win; it is said ‘you attract what you emit’- radiate glory to have it. You then cut out all negativity, possess more productivity and dazzle on.
• Detoxify body, detoxify mind – The most effective motivation is a healthy and charged body that kicks out all sloth, gloom and lack of incentive. Dance, exercise, do yoga, take up running or play a sports and eat clean. Research has consistently shown that positivity gets an immense boost through good a sweat out. You will end up being supremely productive carrying an infectious vibe throughout the day.
• Breathe in goodness from everywhere – Nothing is more calming and motivating than an external motivation that draws your awe, be it inspiring people, soulful music or heart tugging books, quotes or spirituality. As you suffuse your day in such company you emulate their goodness too. As you ford this journey called Life make sure to keep your head and heart on the beautiful happy side of wind. Obviously you cannot shut your eyes and avoid the negative but you at least can disallow them to have a toxic control over you.
• Lighten your backpack – Take it easy and cut down on your workload and personal expectations, setting one goal at a time for then you avoid that chaotic life . Pause awhile and spend some me-time reminding yourself that you are doing great – can there be anything more motivating than your own affirmation? Take frequent stops in this bumpy ride and just rejoice in your being. Let it all go for a while.
And in the end, regularly remind yourself that you can and you will ; each day fall a little more in love with yourself and motivate yourself by simply celebrating your usual awesomeness.
