Tuesday Tips: Increasing Prosperity With Positive Thinking During This Scary Time…

Increasing prosperity in our lives can be accomplished by having the right frame of mind. The truth is, our thoughts are very powerful. They are capable of influencing every aspect of our daily lives, from our physical health to our social behaviors. I’m sure you’ve heard the adage, “As you think, so shall you be.” During this difficult time, I’m sure you know someone who knows someone, or maybe you like myself are experiencing jobs being cut due to this Coronavirus ordeal.๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ This is a scary time, but I always believe we can’t let those negative thought patterns hinder our growth process or our wish to improve prosperity in our lives.

If we want to improve our lives, we must first improve our thoughts. Harnessing the power of thought in a positive way has the ability to create great change in our lives, including our financial well-being and prosperity. But how? How do we take something as intangible as thoughts, and manifest them into a physical reality?
We must first understand that being prosperous is more than having a lot of money.

Prosperity is a mindset, a way of interacting in our lives, and a way of thinking. Mastering this train of thought is not easy, but it is simple enough if we keep working on it consistently.


Following are some ideas to help you improve your thoughts, and ultimately
attract more prosperity into your life:๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

1๏ธโƒฃ Be grateful for the blessings in your life right now. Take a few minutes each day to express heartfelt gratitude for the good things in your life. Even more powerful, write a few of these blessings down each day. This helps to put your focus in the right direction — on abundance, not lack. (especially during this difficult time)

2๏ธโƒฃ Use positive affirmations to begin training yourself to think positively. Use “I am” statements such as “I am worthy of all that is good.” Write the statements down and repeat them nightly before bed. Over time, this will implant these thoughts into your subconscious mind, and you will begin to naturally believe them. (I’m obsessed with affirmations ๐Ÿ˜)

3๏ธโƒฃ Creative visualization can help you achieve prosperity by determining what it is you wish to achieve, and then thoroughly creating that image in your mind. This works in the same way affirmations do. Our subconscious will fill with images of prosperity, and eventually these subconscious “truths” will manifest in the physical. “See” yourself as being prosperous, and you will become so. ๐Ÿ–ค

4๏ธโƒฃ Encourage yourself with the belief that you can achieve great things. This could also be one of your affirmations, but expand on it. If you know you can earn a certain salary, tell yourself you can earn more. Allow yourself to believe all things are possible, and you will gain the confidence needed to reach higherthan you ever imagined you could. If you believe you can do it, you are more likely to take the risks associated with people who are highly successful. Prosperity and success go hand in hand, so take risks and aim higher.

5๏ธโƒฃ Start a savings account. As strange as it sounds, think about this: Like Attracts Like. Even if you can only afford to put a few dollars into your account every month, it will begin to build up and attract more money.

6๏ธโƒฃ Finally, believe you are already wealthy. The creative ability of our thoughts is such that we lend more power and energy to whatever we consistently focus on. Focusing on lack will create more lack. Focusing on wealth and prosperity will create . . . guess what?


Remember that this is a process. You likely won’t change your circumstances in one day. But over time, with consistent focus, your thoughts will begin to attract what you want. Once you master this power of thought, there are truly no limits to what you can create!๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hope these tips find you well as we are all thinking ๐Ÿ’ญ about our future or lack thereof when it comes to our finances….

Monday Motivation…Do you Need a little extra push๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ

Happy Monday Friends…here we are again another Monday right ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ you have said all weekend that this Monday will be the Monday you get started on goals!!!

How is that going right now? Or have you completely run out of steam already…good grief Monday isn’t over yet๐Ÿ˜†

Do you find it hard to stay motivated about the goals you have set?

Do you feel like giving up even before you get started?

Guess what….I have been there too!

I know all too well how hard it is to stay motivated especially if you suffer from mental health issues like I do! And guess what that’s ok…

Motivation is literally the desire we have to do things. It is the difference between waking up before dawn to get started on a particular project and lazing around the house all day watching TV. It’s the crucial element in setting and attaining goals. Research shows you can influence your own levels of motivation, but far too often, we fail to do so. Staying motivated can be a real struggle. When trying to maintain motivation, our drive is constantly assaulted by negative thoughts and anxieties about the future.

Here are a some tips to help you get motivated and achieve those goals:

1๏ธโƒฃ Put your goals in writingโ€”Sometimes, the act of writing down what you are going to do is a strong motivator. Writing down goals helps you make them more specific and less vague. When you write them, use action verbs.

2๏ธโƒฃ Give all your goals measurable outcomesโ€”By doing so, it helps you know when youโ€™ve achieved each goal you set.

3๏ธโƒฃ Make a list of obstaclesโ€”Always think of everything that might stand in your way and decide what you can do about each obstacle. If you design a plan, youโ€™ll reduce the influence of each obstacle and increase the chances that you will be successful.

4๏ธโƒฃ Donโ€™t procrastinateโ€”Procrastination is a form of self-regulatory failure.
The old saying, โ€œNever put off until tomorrow what you can do todayโ€ is one you should live by. If you do this too often, your โ€œtomorrowโ€ may never come, and youโ€™ll never reach your goal. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

5๏ธโƒฃ Keep a positive attitudeโ€”There is nothing more powerful for self-motivation than the right attitude. You canโ€™t choose or control your circumstance, but can choose your attitude towards your circumstances. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ

6๏ธโƒฃ Avoid negativityโ€”If youโ€™re canโ€™t approach something with a positive attitude, at least approach it with an open mind. Negativity will only achieve negative results.

The way you feel about yourself is important. Being motivated and completing goals will help you feel fantastic about yourself. As a motivated self-starter your self-esteem will soar. You will accomplish much more, have greater success and live a full life.

Hope these tips help you to jumpstart your Monday and teach you how to stay motivated about your goals…

Wishing you all an amazing goal getting week,

Tuesday Thoughts…Whoโ€™s In The Driver Seat of Your Life…Learning to Take Responsibility!

Happy Tuesday….continue reading as we explore, who’s in the driver seat of your life. How often do you take responsibility for the circumstances in your life?

One of the biggest challenges that most people face in the exiting times we live in, is the feeling that their lives are just spiralling out of control. They feel like the events and circumstances of their lives have lead them along a torturous route and that they have no control over all the misfortunes and wrong doings that brought them to this moment in time.

The truth is that your life will not change until and unless you assume full responsibility for it. Responsibility, or your ability to respond, is not a way of accepting some form of blame as most people think, but rather a way of accepting your ability to respond to any situation. It is absolutely critical to realize and accept that it is never the actual events of your life but only your responses to these events that will shape and create your life. You are never the creature of circumstances and you have the ultimate ability to consciously decide what things mean and how to respond to it. You are the only one that can and the only one that will take you where you want to go in your life.

Responsibility is not some skill you need to go and find outside of yourself but it is something you already possess. All you need to do is to assume this power that calls on you to stop blaming any and everything other than yourself. Most of us have been conditioned to blame someone else for the parts of our lives that don’t work. When you take full responsibility for your life you put yourself back in charge; you get back in behind the wheel of your life and now you have the ability to control and direct your life the way you choose to. Ultimately it is not the conditions of your life but rather the decisions about what things mean and what you are going to do about it that will create the real conditions of your life.

When you are fully responsible you recognize that you are the creator of your life. At some level you were responsible. If not by your conscious actions, then by the meanings and emotions you attached to the events and experiences. Only when you accept responsibility for creating everything in your life can you start to un-create and re-create it the way you truly want. If you keep blaming someone or something else you will remain bound because you will always rely on something or someone else to be responsible for the way you feel and ultimately someone else will be responsible for the state of your life. You have to consciously unfold your arms, get out of the back seat and get back behind the wheel and start directing your life towards where you want it to go, instead of just going with the flow.

See, there are only two real choices in life, the one conscious and the other unconscious: you can either choose to be directed by the events and circumstances of life and let the river of life take you wherever it’s going or you can have both your hands on the steering wheel and decide that you are in full control. You get to decide where you go. Although you can’t control all the events of your life, you can always decide what the events mean to you and how you are going to respond. Whenever anything happens to you, you have to respond to it in order to create the outcome. Most people have fallen into the cultural hypnosis that just passes the responsibility on to someone else. This is why their lives feel out of control, because it is. They have not taken responsibility.

You create your world. When you assume your responsibility you are in charge and this is an internal shift in your thinking and behaviour. Your psychology is not just a big part of your life but it is “everything.” Winning and loosing in life is an internal game. By learning to control and direct your mind you get to choose what things mean and therefore you get to choose your response, also known as your responsibility. No one can ever give you responsibility. It is an internal process and a switch that only you can turn on or off.

Being fully responsible doesn’t mean you live in blame and self pity. It means that you live life from a place of power where you know that on some level you are fully responsible for what happened and you will be responsible for everything that is to come. Be careful how you utilize your past experiences. With responsibility comes a new emotional territory that reinvents your past. You want to use your past as a place to learn from and a place to pull pleasure from. Right, wrong or indifferent, there is a gift in there somewhere. You just need to find it. It’s never too late to have a happy childhood โ€“ you have the ability (and response-ability) to find an empowering meaning in whatever life gives you.

Responsibility means that you are in charge. You call the shots. Nobody and nothing is in control and to blame other than you. This is how you turn problems into opportunities and how an ordinary life becomes extraordinary. Helen Keller, who was both blind and deaf, said that life is either a daring adventure or nothing. What is it going to be for you? You can either let the environment steer your life or you can get behind the wheel and take responsibility for every aspect of your life. Life is one amazing adventure, but only if you perceive it as that. By being responsible you can take yourself anywhere you want to go because you are the only one who gets to steer your ship and direct the course. You can’t control the wind but you can most certainly direct your sails.

Have an amazing Tuesday,

Happy Sunday…Are You Ready For Tomorrowโ‰๏ธ5 Ways To Help You Get Ready For The Week Ahead…

Happy Sundayโ€ฆLetโ€™s make tomorrow the best day ever! Yes, I’m looking forward to Monday alreadyโ€ฆ
Are You ready?๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ

No matter whether you have a day off, or whether itโ€™s a regular work day, with the right attitude, you can make tomorrow brilliant. Use these steps below to get your week started off rightโ€ฆ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜‰

1๏ธโƒฃ Get Up With Time to Spareโฐ

First, you need to get up with time to spare. That doesnโ€™t mean getting up at the crack of dawn, just waking up with enough time to enjoy a slow breakfast. This is something many of us fail to do and instead end up rushing out the door and starting our day feeling flustered and stressed.
Getting up with time to spare will mean having time to do something you enjoy, and to savor it. This makes a world of difference.

2๏ธโƒฃ Dress Impeccably๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ’‹

Dressing well can make a huge difference to your day. It means you will look your best, which changes the way you project yourself and the way that others treat you. It also means that you will get to experience the feeling of indulging and treating yourself โ€“ of wearing high-quality materials or something really thrifty you put together girl ๐Ÿ˜
For the best day ever, you need to be in your best threadsโ€ฆ

3๏ธโƒฃ Exercise and Meditate ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Both these things can put you in a better headspace. What this does, is it means that everything else that follows will be easier to cope with and will be more enjoyable. You can do both at the start of the day, or find opportunities later throughout the day. I’m actually trying the meditation this weekโ€ฆโ˜บ๏ธ

4๏ธโƒฃ Take a Stroll๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ

Going for a walk means giving yourself time to just think and let your mind wander, which is hugely rejuvenating. The light exercise will trigger the release of feel good hormones, and youโ€™ll generally be more relaxed.
Moreover, the way the light and cool breeze can affect your health and mood is also profound. You can walk in the morning, during a lunch break, or in the evening. The latter can be a great way to unwind after a long day, and you can even stop somewhere for a drinkโ€ฆ(yโ€™all know I walk my pup twice a day in the park, walking ๐Ÿ‘ฃ does clear your head)

5๏ธโƒฃ Have โ€œYou Timeโ€(my fav)

You time means taking a moment out of your day in order to focus on yourself and do something you enjoy. That should mean reading a book, watching a film (or show), or generally doing anything that you actually enjoy.

Use these tips to set yourself up for a better tomorrow, this will help to increase your mood and keep you from dreading Mondayโ˜บ๏ธ

Hey there, well we are coming to the end of February… and if you were keeping up, I posted all about learning how to love yourselfโฃ๏ธthis month. Loving yourself enough to go after anything you want including your goals and dreams…

So, my dear, in this post I’m going to show you ๐™š๐™›๐™›๐™š๐™˜๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ซ๐™š ways to set those goals you’ve been wanting to set, but out of fear and opinions of others…you decided to let those goals go…

Girl, sometimes the difference in whether you succeed or whether you donโ€™t comes down to one simple thing โ€“ believing in yourself! Believing in yourself to accomplish whatever you want to do!

Let’s get started, below are you tips to set those goals in motion…remember who going to stop ๐Ÿšซ you boo….โ˜บ๏ธ

1. ๐™Ž๐™ฉ๐™ค๐™ฅ ๐™Ž๐™š๐™š๐™ ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐˜ผ๐™ฅ๐™ฅ๐™ง๐™ค๐™ซ๐™–๐™ก ๐™๐™ง๐™ค๐™ข ๐™Š๐™ฉ๐™๐™š๐™ง๐™จ

Remember 1st and foremost ๐™”๐™Š๐™ don’t need anyone’s permission to fulfill your dream. Trust yourself and give yourself permission to succeed. Having support from people whose opinion you value is a wonderful thing but it should not be the criterion for whether you begin acting on fulfilling your goals or not.

If you really desire to turn your idea into reality, constantly floating it around and seeking the approval of people will waste your time and kill your dream. What will happen to your idea if you don’t get the approval of those whose permission you so desperately need? Nothing!

  1. ๐˜ฟ๐™ค๐™ฃโ€˜๐™ฉ ๐™’๐™–๐™ž๐™ฉ ๐™๐™ค๐™ง ๐™‹๐™š๐™ง๐™›๐™š๐™˜๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฃ

Waiting for a time when everything is perfect and in place will cause you to lose your enthusiasm and abandon your goal. Conditions may never be as perfect as you desire. You may never have all the money, time, or knowledge you desire to begin working on your goals.

You must take risks, learn and improve as you go along and then watch as everything begins to fall in place. If you have to wait for the perfect time to begin working on your goals you will be waiting a long time!

  1. ๐˜พ๐™ง๐™š๐™–๐™ฉ๐™š ๐™๐™ž๐™ข๐™š ๐™๐™ค๐™ง ๐™”๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐™‚๐™ค๐™–๐™ก

Many people have dreams, ideas or goals, which remain unfulfilled because they are too busy doing everything else but work on the goal! If you have a goal to accomplish, you must be ready to invest your time, and resources to ensure that it succeeds.

Making excuses about lacking the time to work on goals that are important to you is a procrastination tactic, which will kill your dream before it has a chance to see the light of day. There is always time to work on what we love and consider important. Create that time and see your dreams begin to unfold!

  1. ๐˜ฟ๐™š๐™˜๐™ž๐™™๐™š ๐™Š๐™ฃ๐™˜๐™š ๐˜ผ๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™๐™ค๐™ง ๐˜ผ๐™ก๐™ก!

The process of goal accomplishment, like most things in life begins with a decision. You decide what you want to achieve and then you plan how you intend to achieve it.

If accomplishing your goal is important to you, your inability to make crucial decisions about what you should do, how you should do it and when you should do it, will waste your time and choke your dream. Make up your mind and stop second-guessing yourself. When your mind is made up nothing can stop you from making progress with fulfilling your goals.

  1. ๐˜ฝ๐™š ๐˜ฝ๐™ค๐™ก๐™™ ๐˜ผ๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™๐™–๐™ ๐™š ๐™„๐™ฃ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ซ๐™š ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ

Be bold! You are the one in charge of turning your dreams to reality. You need to be proactive and actively involved in the process of working on your goals to ensure you achieve them.

Just because you have shared your ideas with others does not necessarily mean that you are no longer responsible for turning them to reality. Don’t sit around waiting for others to make suggestions and guide your idea to reality. Don’t leave your dream entirely in the hands of others. Nobody cares about your dream like you do.

  1. ๐™„๐™ฃ๐™ซ๐™š๐™จ๐™ฉ ๐™„๐™ฃ ๐™”๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง ๐˜ฟ๐™ง๐™š๐™–๐™ข

No idea is self-funding. Don’t be deceived into thinking that people will invest or finance your idea just because it is brilliant. If you are lucky, someone may invest in it, but if you are not, you will have to invest your time, energy and finances towards activities that will fortify and fulfil your dream.

You may have to invest in the acquisition of knowledge or expertise that will help you achieve your goals. It would be a good idea to keep some money stashed away to finance your goal.

  1. ๐˜ฟ๐™ค ๐™Š๐™ฃ๐™š ๐™๐™๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐˜ผ๐™ฉ ๐™– ๐™๐™ž๐™ข๐™š

Commit yourself only to projects and activities which are connected to your main goal. Whatever you do should directly or indirectly add up to a move toward your main goal. Failure to do this will confuse, overwhelm, sidetrack, and drain your energy.

To get started on achieving your goals, you need to plan for it and make it a priority. If you keep crowding and cluttering your life with what does not matter, you many never, ever accomplish your goals.

Remember that you can’t do all things, but you can do one thing and one thing at a time is ok!

There you haven’t 7๏ธโƒฃ simple tips to get yourself ready to take action on setting those goals…love yourself enough to go after anything and everything you want…๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ I’m rooting for you๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพโ˜บ๏ธ

Tuesday Tips: Learn How To Be Happier…

Hey there, in search of happiness, many people look for it in other people and not within ourselves. Many people feel that things like money, a better job, better relationships..etc will make them happy. In reality, to find true contentment you must look inside yourself and learn to be your own best friend. That means you have to trust, love, and care for yourself just as you do the people you consider to be close to you.

Following are steps that you can incorporate into your life that will help you to feel more empowered and happy about yourself!๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

๐ŸคŽBegin to lift yourself up, not put yourself down. If you don’t like something about yourself, work to change it. If you can’t change it, simply accept it. Don’t beat up on yourself with negative self-talk. You’re not likely to change for the better when you fill yourself with negative thoughts.

๐ŸคŽGive yourself positive rewards. When you do something that you are proud of give yourself a small reward. Try not to wait for others to praise you because you may grow resentful if the praise doesn’t come. Pat your own back, it is a great feeling that can stay with you for a long time.

๐ŸคŽForgive yourself. I doubt that you would keep scolding a child over and over for making a mistake so don’t do that to yourself. Give yourself the gift of forgiveness when you make a mistake. After that, work to figure out what lesson you can learn, and use it to make better choices the next time around.

๐ŸคŽEnjoy your successes. Most people can remember all of the details of depressing, painful or even embarrassing events that happened many years ago. What if you did the same thing with all of your wins? Try to remember all of the triumphs and accomplishments that you’ve made and keep that memory with you and think about it at least once a week.

Always remember to celebrate your wonderful qualities! You will soon discover that the more you love yourself, the more you will be able to give love to others – and the more others will be able to love you! โ˜บ๏ธYou deserve to happy…

Learn how to set goals, stay motivated, and keep them…

Goal setting is the true secret to success in any area of life. But although setting a goal may seem simple, achieving it is usually another question altogether.

Why is that?

Because you will never achieve your goals unless you: (1) know exactly what you want, (2) are passionate about your goal, and (3) have a solid, realistic plan of action. This is what marks the difference between nebulous dreams and wishes – and truly achievable goals!

Many obstacles and challenges will fly right in your face when you’re going after a goal. Here are 5 time-tested methods that will help get the success you deserve.

โœ…Know exactly what your goal is

Your first job is to discover exactly what your goal is. What will achieving that goal really look like? Be as specific as possible about exactly what your desired end result is. Your success will be a measure of your clarity – since an achievable goal plan cannot be created around a nebulous “dream.”

If your goal is to create a more successful business, what will that look like? Are you thinking in terms of simply hiring someone else to give you more free time? Are you looking for a very specific monthly profit? Or can your goal be best expressed in terms of a certain lifestyle?

Regardless of what you want, the best way to get it is to first clarify exactly what you want in as much detail as possible. This can be hard work. But without a clear mental picture, you’ll never have the focus required to achieve your goal.

โœ…Be willing to pay the “entry fee”

Success takes dedicated planning and effort. In a way it’s like building a house. In the beginning all you have is a rough concept. Then you develop a complete set of plans – and you immediately move closer to success. The same is true of creating a better lifestyle, or a more successful business.

But there’s always an entry fee to be paid for success.

The entry fee?

Creating more success in your business may mean less recreational time. Writing your own book may require less TV. Being closer to your children may require adjusting your work or social activities.(learning this now)

It’s the “full glass” deal. If your life (your time) is already full to the top, there’s no room for something new. The entry fee is carving out the time to create that something new.

โœ…Focus on your goal every day

I’m sure you probably want to achieve your goal as fast as possible. That’s why clear mental focus is so very important.

Consistent daily focus is absolutely necessary to “burn in” the new neural pathways you need to create your new goal. Without daily focus, the old mental habits that have kept you from your goal will continue to take over.

This happens automatically – since these old habits replay 24/7 deep in your subconscious mind. The only way to override subconscious anti-success messages is to consciously focus on what you DO want – and build new neural networks!

That’s why success is an every-day event.

Re-commit to your goal every day. Don’t let your goal take a back seat to the daily tasks and distractions that will try to take over. Life WILL try to get in your way. Just get, and stay, on course every day. Focus on your goal, and on success!

โœ…Get passionate

One of the most powerful tools in your “success tool box” is having real passion for your goal.

Why passion?

Because intense passionate desire for your goal will help you burn in those new neural pathways even faster. Many, many scientific studies have shown that intense emotion (passion) is a key success tool.

PLUS (and this is really a big plus), intense passion will also help you rapidly override any inappropriate old “failure messages” stored in your subconscious mind.

โœ…Take consistent action

In many ways, actually taking action can be the most difficult step. Successful goal achievement is built by taking one small action after another.

The word is ACTION!

If you commit to take at least one small action each day, your actions WILL add up and make a difference. So avoid sitting back waiting for that big second when everything will magically “just happen.”

You CAN create whatever you want in life. The secret is to determine exactly what you want, then pursue it passionately. But remember — in the end only action counts! You can’t just dream about it! You have to DO IT!

It’s hard I know, but we have to stay motivated when trying to achieve our goalsโ€ฆ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ

Have you ever taken a long, hard look at your life and felt depressed when you thought about things that it lacked? Chances are, you have. No one has a perfect life. There are countless and constant ways in which a person can improve. Self-improvement motivation comes from a place inside each of us that desires to be a better person. There are several elements that are considered part of self-improvement motivation.

Among the most popular are:

  • Appearance improvement
  • Intellectual improvement
  • Financial improvement

Dress to impress: ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ’‹
Appearance improvement is one of the most popular types of self-improvement motivation. For many people, there is always a pound to be lost, a gray hair to be covered up, or new clothing to be purchased. Other people get extremely obsessive about appearance improvement, paying thousands of dollars for nose jobs, liposuction, collagen implants, hair replacement, or other such procedures. (not me๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ) Because of the media and the influence of Hollywood stars, people who are young, old, male, and female have become appearance improvement crazy. These are the often the same people who feel that appearance is all that matters in life.

Self-improvement motivation by the books: ๐Ÿ“š
Intellectual motivation is another key element of self-improvement motivation. The desire to become more educated or gain more knowledge on a subject drives many minds. Well-informed people are often perceived as powerful people. After all, knowledge is power.

Today, it is no surprise that more and more middle-aged adults are going back to school to get their bachelor’s or master’s degrees. (I did, got my Bachelor’s) This desire to get more education often stems from the fact that most companies are interested in employees who know how to use the latest and greatest software and computer programs. Companies are also interested in employees that have an up-to-date education. Many companies, especially larger ones, will pay for employees to go back to school or be trained for a specific job.

Most colleges and universities even have continuing education programs. These programs allow non-traditional students to learn about a subject or become educated on how to use programs for computers.

Financial improvement: ๐Ÿค‘
Another important element of self-improvement motivation is financial motivation. In reality, most people desire to have more money than they have at the present time. Perhaps a person wants to purchase a home, car, or an education. Perhaps someone needs to pay medical bills or legal fees, or raise a child. Finances are key to surviving in today’s world. Financial self-improvement motivation often comes in the form of taking on a second or third job, investing in stocks or bonds, or learning how to save money wisely. Financial self-improvement motivation may also include asking a current employer for a promotion or a raise.

Overall, anything that motivates and in turn improves the physical, material, or mental part of a person is a form of self-improvement motivation. No one is perfect, but many of us can try to get as close as we can. Take this week to stay motivated and don’t give up on your dreams and goals…Mondayโ€™s are a great way to start again๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ



Have an awesome ๐ŸŒŸ and productive week friends,
