Monday’s seem to be the best day for solid motivation. It doesn’t matter if your working out, finishing a homework assignment, cascading into a busy work week, or just looking for a pick-me-up, Monday’s seem to be the go-to day. Did you know Pinterest most pinned pins on a Monday are all about motivation? Makes sense, how often do we put off a diet till Monday, a new fitness routine, or doodle out an extensive list of things to do. So here I am, deciding to do a #MantraMonday. I love a good quote, motivating word, or just a serious dose of reality. They do something for me, so maybe I could do something for you. Without further or do, here it is friends, our first #MondayMantra.
Believe; v: to have confidence in the truth, the existence, or the reliability of something, although without absolute proof that one is right in doing so.
Belief is where ideas, dreams, and goals start and end with. We have to believe in ourselves to get the dream rolling, and it rolls because we once believed in our self. But belief isn’t just about our own thoughts towards it; I strongly believe it can take one person believing in your dream or goal that makes the biggest impact. How often do we contemplate an action, a desire, or even a wild idea that you want to bring to life? We all have little ideas in our head that don’t get vocalized because we are scared or timid what others might think, they might not believe in something the same way you do. Rejection is uncomfortable and scary; no one likes to feel shot down. What we look for is someone to believe in us, to reassure our ideas, our wants, our aspirations. One person is your game changer, to push yourself and believe in yourself. One person to say they believe in you. Whether it is a stranger who believes in you, a friend, a significant other, or even your mom, it doesn’t matter. Being believed in feels good. My challenge to you is to always believe in yourself. Have trust and faith in your story and the road your supposed to be on. You will have much more Negative Nancy’s then you’d like, so hold on to your belief. My second challenge, believe in someone. Reach out and show someone that you believe in them, tell them, or show your support. That person could need the belief more then you know. You could be the only yes in a sea of no’s. We don’t know our end story, we don’t know the book written for us, but we do know that when you believe you receive what you need.
