What’s Your Motivational Phrase?

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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?ย You’ll get a phrase that will help you persevereย 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.

    “You are ‘Live Now’

    You act boldly and swiftly without any second guessing. You are decisive and resolute. You love taking risks. You believe that if you don’t roll the dice, you won’t get the payoff.

    You don’t like gossip, but you can talk to anyone. You are good at connecting with every person in the world. You are confident and sure of yourself. You can always back up an unpopular decision or opinion.”

    “Live now.” This definitely sounds like something I could say to myself. This result suggests that I act boldly and swiftly, but I usually don’t. Sometimes it takes days or weeks before I can feel comfortable with making a decision about something (especially if it’s big). But it feels like something I’ve been trying to get myself to do more lately, stop over-thinking things and waiting for things to just happen. Not necessarily drop everything to follow a wild idea, but act a little more than I usually do.

    I’m definitely good at connecting with people. And again with that “confident and sure of yourself” trait that keeps popping up in my quiz results…intriguing.

    “Live now,” I like it ๐Ÿ™‚

    You Are “Live Now” (great quiz theme – inspired by New Year approaching perhaps?)

      Yes, you were totally right about the theme being based on New Year / fresh start ๐Ÿ™‚ I love anything that’s self-help / proactive, but I try not to overwhelm folks with it too much here at Blogthings

    You Are “Carpe Diem” (Seize the day. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    “You are very open to the world. You try to say yes to as many opportunities as possible.”

    Always trying new stuff and learning new things.

    “You are a pleasure seeker. You’re a bit of a hedonist, and you enjoy the finer things in life.”

    I’ll admit this is somewhat true, but in my defense, I do work hard for it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    “You are easily distracted. There’s so much going on in the world, and you think focus is overrated.”

    I’d say I have a combination of focus and willingness to superficially tackle many projects.

    “You are energetic and lively. You stay high-energy throughout the day.”

    Well, coffee helps. Haha.
