Do you ever have one of those days where you feel totally blah and unproductive? I have them all the time! I have found that instead of fighting against those days, it’s better to lean into them a little. The more compassionate I am with myself, the better the day goes. It’s hard to force something that doesn’t want to be forced. Sometimes I just have to step back and get a bit philosophical to get through the day. This is where something like a motivational phrase or mantra comes in handy.
Motivational phrases are funny because you have to get them just right. There’s a reason why they are often so cheesy … get the tone wrong, and they can be totally demotivating! I suppose that this is why I like to group motivational phrases with mantras. They are a very personal thing, and no boss, parent, teacher, or other authority figure can tell you what should motivate you. Only you can figure that out for yourself 🙂 I don’t know about you, but my biggest source of motivation definitely comes from with in.
Do you have a phrase that helps you get through the day? Whether you do or not, take my latest quiz to find out: What’s Your Motivational Phrase? You’ll get a phrase that will help you persevere when times are tough. Even if it’s not the phrase for you, hopefully it will set you on the right track for finding your phrase. I don’t know about you, but I find that things like this really help me set the tone for my life.
Please let me know what you thought of this one! Does it get the gist of what keeps you going in life? What’s your personal motivational phrase? Is it close to what you got on this quiz?
