"Continuity gives us roots; change gives us branches, letting us stretch and grow and reach new heights."
~Pauline R. Kezer

10 Ten Ways to Stay Positively Motivated

1. Listen to Uplifting song(s): You should listen to a positive song(s) in the morning before the start of your day or during your day. This really helps in getting you to start off your day on a positive note. Such songs make you feel good about yourself and boost your confidence in your abilities to accomplish the days activities or goals for the near or distant future. A friend of my actually recommended that i do this and it actually worked for me, so here i am sharing it with you. For a start i listened and still listen to Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey`s great song, `When you Believe.`` This will help you remember the importance of having much faith and belief in youself.

2. Read a Motivational Book: These go long way to actually teaching you techiques to keep you head out of the negative attitude zone. They usually talk about autobiographies of past or present people who have attain some form of success after battling many osbtacles of which we more often than not have in common.There are gazilion amounts of motivation books out there available for you to read. Some of them are even FREE! of all the ten motivational tips, this should be the easiest to have access to. Just to a little search on you will find whole books, some free some you have to pay for or some are even extracts from a book. I recommend you get an audio book in addition to a hardcopy or one of them. Audio books are great because you can listen on your way to work or play!

3. Picturize and Visualize your goal(s): This is a very effective way to keep yourself positively motivated. All this involves is having an actually picture of what you are trying to it an amount of money, an exotic sports car, a house or even a college degree for that matter...anything! This acts as a visual constant reminder of what it is you are pursuing. Afterall nothing is worst than forgeting what you are accually sweating your butt off for!

4. Write out and rewrite your goals every day: This is quite simple, each morning before you begin you day, write down as breifly as you can the top goal you are pursuing and then six things you will have to do that day to move you towards that goal

5. STICK AROUND POSITIVE PEOPLE: This is soooooooooooooooooo important that I am going to repeat it in bolded letters STICK AROUND POSITIVE PEOPLE. We eventually have the same type of attitude as the group of people we hang around with. To have a positive attitude and to be positively motivated, you have to hang out with peopl who have a positive attitude and are positively motivated.

Stay tune for the remaining five...!

Our Deepest Fear

Thanks LoLa, creator of

"There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same."

-An extract from the poem by Marianne Wilson
Our Deepest Fear

By far this is the best poem on personal motivation i have ever. It is so powerful in a sense that it really gets you to stop and think before you fall victim as your greatest obstacle. Then again this is my experience. I highly encourage that you read this for yourself and start making your life happen!
