10 Things to Look for in Your Motivational Material

10 Things to Look for in Your Motivational Material

10 Things to Look for in Your Motivational Material

What is a self-help tool website that does not give you instructions on how your motivational material should make you feel? Or what is should motivate you to want to do? Not this one. Here is the list of 10 Things to Look for in Your Motivational Material.

Reading this post pretty much tells me two things about you:

  1. You liked the pretty picture
  2. You are looking to motivate yourself to be better and doing better.

Either way, I still love you. {wink}

Motivation, as defined by my trusted assistant, Alexa (Amazon Echo), is the psychological feature that arouses an organism to act towards a desired goal. Yes, you read that, she said organism, in this case, that is you.

So what f…g motivates you to act? Are you driven by survival, reaction or the desire to create the life of your dreams? There is no wrong answer here, but there are better ways to take control of whatever situation you find yourself in, and that is with your trusted self-help tool, the fantastic motivational materials out there.

Powerful Morning Routine to Prepare your Mind for a New Day

Powerful Morning Routine to Prepare your Mind for a New Day

What happens when you drag the drama from yesterday to today? Here is a powerful morning routine for awesomeness that I use.

I am not a morning person, but I can tell if I have woken up on a brand new day having dragged along some of the not so great feelings from the day before. The other day I woke up after having what I felt was a seriously unproductive Sunday, I was resting and building up my strength instead of writing posts, editing pictures, doing my coaching homework or something I considered super productive.

I had also gone to bed thinking, boy, what a wasted day. Can you imagine falling asleep to that soundtrack, no wonder I woke up in a funk?

Catch yourself if you are not in a beautiful state.

I woke up that morning, and I knew, there was no way I was getting out of bed feeling like that. Then I remembered, wait, I don’t have to feel like this, I can choose exactly how I want my morning to be, how I want to feel, and by George, I was going to have a great day.

10 Ways to Practice Gratitude Daily

10 Ways to Practice Gratitude Daily

Gratitude is the simple act of counting your blessings. Sometimes those blessings seem hard to find, but you should start, even if it is the smallest thing you can think of, like waking up, before you know it you will have more and more to be grateful for in your life. Soon, you are beaming around town radiating gratitude. There is always a reason to be grateful.

Ways to Practice Gratitude

Wake Up to Gratitude
Start your day with gratitude. When you open your eyes in the morning, your first words should be “Thank you.” You should start your day saying, thank you. Just do it, don’t argue, morning person or not, you woke up today, so say thank you.

I use the Gratitude Mantra from the moment I sit up in bed, put my slippers on, and start my day. I just repeat the words, “thank you.”

Pay attention and try to notice things you can be grateful for throughout your day.

Gratitude Journal
A Gratitude Journal can be anything from a plain notebook to a fancy journal, or an actual Gratitude Journal. This practice is for those who love journaling as a self-help tool.

In your journal, you write a list of things you are grateful for each day. Most people journal first thing in the morning or at night before they go to sleep. There are no rules; I would suggest using your journal whenever the spirit moves you.

Gratitude Mantra
Saying the words, “Thank You,” as a mantra. I love this form of practicing gratitude, as I have found it to be the quickest way for me to change my mood. If I find myself stumbling out of my joy zone, as in, I noticed that my emotions have slipped out of optimal happiness mode. I just repeat the words, thank you, over and over and in less than two minutes I am feeling better. (more…)

My Wage Poem by JB Rittenhouse

My Wage Poem by JB Rittenhouse

My Wage Poem by JB Rittenhouse

I bargained with Life for a penny,
and Life would pay no more,
however I begged at evening
when I counted my scanty store.
For Life is a just employer, he gives you what you ask, but once you have set the wages, why, you must bear the task.

I worked for a menials hire,
only to learn,
dismayed,
that any wage I had asked of Life, Life would have willingly paid.

Levnow Poetry for your Soul Series

My Takeaway from the poem My Wage by JB Rittenhouse

I love this poem because it is the embodiment of the Law of Attraction and how our ignorance of this law has led a lot of us to settle for way less than we want or deserve.

“For Life is a just employer, he gives you what you ask,”

Ask the Universe for whatever you want and it says, your wish is my command, so why ask for a penny when you can ask for millions or billions. Why settle for less when you have a powerful entity waiting to grant all your wishes.

Take a minute to really think about what you want, actually here is a worksheet where you can take a moment for self-reflection and write down everything you’ve ever wanted as a conversation between you, the Universe, and God. (more…)

Be Patient Poem by Rainer Maria Rilke

Be Patient Poem by Rainer Maria Rilke

Be Patient Poem by Rainer Maria Rilke

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue.

Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything.

Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.

My Takeaway from the poem Be Patient by Rainer Maria Rilke

This poem is a reminder to live in the moment, the questions about tomorrow cannot be answered today, so why bother. Remember the present is all you have, use it to create the future of your dreams.
