Motivational Monday (and Everyday)
Part of motivation involves us looking into the future. We are motivated for the hope of progress and improvement in the upcoming days week, months or years.
Having HOPE is something that we need daily. Being HOPEFUL is really the key. We have talked about this before. Hope in the true sense of which I am referring, is not the synonym for wish. For example, I can say, “I hope I will win the lottery.” In this context, we could replace hope with wish. “I wish I could win the lottery.” We don’t really expect to win, we are simply wishing that we would .
If we are in true hopefulness we have an expectancy that what we long for will happen. Example: You had a great job interview. You felt really good about it. You might say, ” I am hopeful that I got the job. ” You have an expectancy that the job will be offered to you.
In the same way, when I am referring to hope, I really mean hopeful expectation. In keeping motivated, hopefulness is important. We need to keep hopeful expectation that what we are striving for will happen. We will succeed in that business we will lose the weight, we will overcome mental and physical health issues, we will heal that damaged relationship.
No matter what you are working towards, you can do so with fearless, hopeful expectancy. Keep positive images in your mind, listen to positive, uplifting music. If you are a praying person, don’t neglect your faith. Surround yourself with others who want to see you succeed in whatever area you are working on.
Take a minute to reflect on some of the challenges you have already overcome in your life. Live in hopeful expectancy and live life fearlessly! Use that to be your Movitation.
