Pep Talk

READY “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.” ~ Robert Frost

 AIM…  Ok, who needs a pep talk?  Seems to me many of the folks I know are feeling the winter blahs.  Even the status updates on Face Book are riddled with woes of sickness, dismay about the weather and disappointment about the world in which we live.  Even I have succumbed to some of these blahs and am admittedly struggling to feel inspired or motivated. 

 I have great news for us all!  Here’s just the pep talk we need to get out of our slump.  Just click this link and get ready:  http://www.youtube.com/embed/l-gQLqv9f4o

Alright, I’m pumped and ready to make my own Space Jam movie.  How about you?

 FIRE!   You were made for more!  Get up off that couch and make your move!  It’s time for you to make a difference, my friend.  We were made for more!

Be Excellent!

Kick In The Pants

READY... “Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can.” ~ Unknown
AIM…  Happy New Year!!  Oh wait, that was two weeks ago, wasn’t it?  Yeah, I’m having a hard time getting motivated in this new year.  Enough excuses from me. Did you write or commit to any new year’s resolutions?  Truthfully, I wrote my resolutions but didn’t really get around to doing anything about them until this week.  I guess I needed to ease into the new year routines (at least that’s what I was telling myself.)

 So…how are you doing with your commitments?  Have you given up already?  Don’t fret if you’re struggling. We get a new day, every single day, so, Happy New Year – again!!  Yep, just start over again today and recommit as if it were January 1st.  You never have to give up and feel like you’ve totally thrown in the towel. Who cares if you mess up or make a mistake or fall short of your goal?  Just start fresh again with your new day.

I hope you find encouragement in this revelation.  I know I’m going to start fresh tomorrow with some of my resolutions myself.  Let’s face it, we are all adults.  Sometimes we need an extra person to hold our hand or keep us accountable.  Identify that person you trust to keep you on track so when you feel like giving up, your accountability partner will be pushing you out of your funk.  I’m ready to attack 2013, are you?

FIRE!   Joyce Meyer says to “Stop putting a period where God places a comma.”  Choose one thing you are willing to commit to doing consistently. Work toward your goal, every day this week.  I’ll keep you accountable if you need someone to check up on you.  Let’s do this! 

Be Excellent!
