…till the job gets doneBy
How is your motivation going today? High as ever? Or dwindling on the low side? Are you roaring to go and accomplish your most important projects? Or are you doing anything in your power to forget about them?
It doesn’t matter if your project is to find a new job, to get your business off the ground, to begin painting or to get back into the habit of writing your morning pages. To begin and successfully finish those small or large projects, you need a fair amount of motivation racing through your veins.
Let’s face it there will be days when you question yourself about the meaning and practicality of any projects you are involved in. Even if you chose them for yourself. Even if those are important to you. Even if it is your dream.
Some days you just wake up and ask yourself: why bother? You might feel discouraged, lacking confidence, weak, drained of energy, tired or hopeless. Or you might just simply begin to hate what needs to get done. Believe me; I am guilty of this, too.
Why is your motivation so important? Because it keeps you moving through difficulties, disappointment, challenges or hardship you might face down the road to success. Either you keep up your momentum or risk failure.
How do you get things done? You just do them … until the job gets done.
I personally love watching short motivational videos when my drive to succeed hits rock-bottom. Below is a selection of my favorites. Some of them are funny, some make my eyes well up, and some have beautiful images.
