We all have some insecurities but this #MondayMotivation quote from author and speaker Tim Fargo pushes us to work through them in order to open the door to new possibilities in our lives.

Hoping that today’s #MondayMotivation from actor Leonardo DiCaprio pushes you to be greater today and every day!

I’ll be honest. The past few weeks have been a little rough. Just very busy with a lot to do and I was mentally and physically drained. Any free time I had was carved out for Netflix and sleep. I had no energy to do much else. And Imperfectly B fell by the wayside.

In looking at this quote, I remembered that this life was I asked and prayed for. I prayed for a new job that would be fulfilling and challenging. I prayed that my writing career would take off to a new level. And it’s all happening now. BUT it requires a different me. It requires a tougher, more dedicated me. It requires pushing through, even on the days when I’m over it. So I’ll have to squeeze in a short power nap, turn off my wonderful Netflix, and get back on track.

New levels in your life require a better and stronger you. Even the energy and work you gave before might not be enough. So when you get that new job, or your side gig starts taking off, it’s time for self-evaluation. Ask yourself, “What is currently working for me and what can I be doing better? How can I be more efficient and consistent?” Once you discover those answers, work to apply those changes to your habits and patterns.


Man oh man, I know about this #MondayMotivation quote from author Helen Keller all too well. It’s a tough one to swallow, but it’s one we all need to read.

Building your character, strength, and success doesn’t come easy in the least. You may think that it comes from your wins, but, most of the time, it comes from your rough times. Your trials are what truly strengthens you for what’s ahead and helps to teach you and allow you to grow. You may be down for a while. You may have to cry some days. However, your trials and hard times help to build up humility, perseverance and endurance for the road ahead (victories AND trials).

I wouldn’t have been able to handle some of the problems that came my way recently if not for previous trials. It’s hard when you’re going through them, but, in the long run, that’s how you develop your mental toughness and muscle for the future.


Kicking off another week with some #MondayMotivation!

I love this quote from the late country singer and businessman Jimmy Dean (yes of Jimmy Dean Sausages!), and it’s so true. The storms of life are inevitable; you’ll be hit with hard times and setbacks, often times when you least expect it. And it can be tough. Super tough.

You may not be able to change what’s going on around you, but you can change a few things about yourself. One, you can change how you react to them. You can choose to be better, not bitter, and try your best to maintain your joy and positive attitude in the midst of a storm. It’s not easy, but it can be done. You can also change how you work through them. You can change up your work process, or how much time you commit to a project or outside activities.

Life is all about constant adjustment to obstacles. Don’t get so caught up in the bad that comes your way as you work towards your goals. Adjust your attitude about it and your actions, and keep working on your dreams!
