“People often tell me that motivation doesn’t last, and I tell them that bathing doesn’t either. That’s why I recommend it daily.” –Zig Ziglar
It’s easy to get distracted and lose focus. Especially when Monday comes and the work week begins for most of us.
Over the years I have discovered that what works best for me is pasting my big goals in a visible place where I can see them everyday. Below my goals, I also include inspiring quotes and Bible verses that sum up what is most important to me. These words constantly remind me what is my calling, purpose, mission, and vision. Most importantly, they remind me that I am part of a bigger story; a story scripted by the same author that created this awesome world and every unique and beautiful human being. This is the same author that is here with me as I type these words on my blog. Not only does He keep me motivated to live each day filled with passion, joy, and on purpose, but also motivates me to walk with integrity.
Aside of my daily shower and motivation, I need my time to meditate with God. During this time I read, pray, listen, and let it all sink in. I end up much better than when I started. I am often refueled with clarity, confidence, peace, and understanding. This is the time that impacts all other “times” in my day. This is the cornerstone of my life.
Picture your vision for life. Who do you want to be? What is most important for you? For your spouse, family, community? Write two or three sentences and/or include some quotes and capture that vision. Now paste it on your fridge, desk, or set it as a desktop wallpaper. Let this be your daily compass as your move forward in life.
