Monday Motivation

Today’s motivation is to encourage you to be strong, determined, and motivated to make the best of what this week is to hold for you.

Monday’s To-Do List

  • Make my bed
  • Be determined
  • Be grateful

If we start our week with the mind set of these three simple principles, then we have mentally prepared ourselves for a more positive outcome.

Now, to briefly examine this list.

  • Make my bed

Who makes their bed everyday?

I for one, believe by getting up and making my bed I have already accomplished a simple task for the day. Every time I go to my bedroom, I am reminded this is done and it makes me feel better about myself.

If you do not make your bed every day, I challenge you to try it for just a week and see if it helps to change your perspective to starting your day.

  • Be determined

If I was not determined to do what is often times hard, I would not have the motivation to push through what is difficult.

Think about the areas in your life you struggle with.

Do you have the strength and determination to push through what is difficult to accomplish what is important to you?

Be encouraged knowing God will give you the strength to fight for what is important. He will give you the determination you need to accomplish this task, just be sure to ask.

Do not rely on your own strength, or you will fall short of completion.

Remember these words…

“He who has prepared us for this very thing is God…”

2 Corinthians 5:5
  • Be grateful

Lastly, be grateful for everything you accomplish and do not take it for granted.

For where our gratitude is, there will be a sense of accomplishment.

Remember this verse God gave us.

“… Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you.”

‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:18‬

Gratitude is as powerful as determination in accomplishing tasks.

If you’re not thankful for what you have and what you have accomplished, then why bother working towards accomplishing the goal?

If your week looks like it will be long and difficult, then be encouraged by these inspirational words…

“What seems to us as bitter trials are often blessings in disguise.”

Oscar Wilde

Today may be the day that you need to try changing your perspective at how you look at your trial or difficulty.

Instead, look at it as a blessing in disguise. What is it trying to teach you? What are you meant to learn from it.

Maybe the blessing is found by trying to accomplish it a different way. All too many times we get tunnel vision and do not see there is a better way.

My friend, now you have been equipped with some motivation, here is to a happy and accomplished week.

You’ve Got This!
