Today, I want to know: What is the motivation behind to getting up in the morning?
Is it money?
Is it passion?
Is it purpose?
Is it the calling?
When you open your eyes, what is the first thought that comes to mind about your job?
“Oh yes, thank you for the new day with new challenges and growth opportunities at work.”
Or is it “Oh no, I don’t want to get up and go that awful place again.”
If you answered yes, then you are in a good space where life is concerned. You have found your purpose and your calling. Your passion is the driving force behind your motivation. You go to work because you love your work and the daily dose of little challenges that comes along with it, you view as perks because they allow room for growth. What is most rewarding is at the end of the business day, you have a feeling of fulfillment.
For those who answered no, maybe it is time to go back to the drawing board, destroy it and time to create a vision, board.
A vision board is an instrument that will be able to help you clarify your goals life. On this board, you have free reign to paste pictures of your dream job, your dream house, your dream car, your ideal business, your certificates, diploma’s or degrees that you want to achieve.
Your vision board will reflect your dreams, goals and the life that YOU really want for yourself and your family. When you see your vision board daily, it will give your life new purpose and meaning.
From creating the vision board, you will be able to set more clear goals and define them with specific time frames as to when you want to complete them. But that is not all that you have to do.
With your vision board come positive affirmations and envisioning yourself on what you have posted on your vision board. You can create a separate vision board for your affirmations. Positive affirmations can be done early in the morning while you get dressed for work, especially when you stand in the mirror and put on your special perfume or cologne. You look in the mirror and say to yourself that ” I AM SUCCESSFUL; THIS DAY WILL BE PRODUCTIVE, or I AM ACING THOSE ASSIGNMENTS OR EXAMS THIS YEAR. The list is endless. It is yours if you want to achieve it.
While you say those positive affirmations, remember to visualise yourself passing your exams and your assignments. See yourself walking in your dream house; see yourself driving the car of your dreams and imagine you in that manager’s position. No one can take away what you see inside your heart and what you envisage for yourself. It is absolutely yours to achieve and to live out.
Do not forget to visualise yourself having fun at the same time because we have to maintain a balance in life when it comes to work and life outside of the working environment.
I sincerely hope that when you look at your creation of your vision board that you will find your driving force that motivates you to get up in the morning. May your eyes be enlightened to discover the passion that is yearning to escape from your mind. Let the passion be the spark that ignites the fire within you so that your greatness can come to the forefront and cause your light to shine so bright that it touches others around you. May you shine brightly in all that you set out to accomplish from this day forward.
