Quotes to Inspire

“Your time is limited, so don’t

Waste it living someone else’s

life. Don’t be trapped by

dogma- which is living with

the result of other people’s

thinking. Don’t let the noise

of other’s opinions drown out

your own inner voice. And

most important, have the

courage to follow your heart

and intuition. They somehow

already know what you truly

want to become.”

-Steve Jobs

Monday Inspiration

Build your dreams,

Never loose hope.

Don’t loose confidence

Because you failed,

Your failure is only pointing

You towards the right direction- Eddaz

What Are Your Monday Expectations

I learned that the secret to happiness in life is low expectations, luckily for me, I realized this important thing at a young age, and this has stayed with me all through the years. I have faith in God, I believe in myself, but I never expect too much from a situation, people or objects which has led me to appreciate them more.

Nevertheless, I make plans, sometimes they work out as planned and other times, they turn out the other way. Monday has always been the same for me like other days except for Saturday and Sunday. Henceforth I need a plan for Mondays because I’ve realized I always have too much to deal with on that day. Set of rules for me only, goes thus:

-Wake up early with positivity

-Give thanks to God

-walk or run

-Set the target

-Set reminders

-Measure achievements at the end of the day.

This is actually a summarized form of Monday activity for myself.  Remember it’s Monday, stay motivated, talk to someone, believe in yourself!

Shine On Monday

Hi everyone! It’s Monday again….Time to shine…Regardless do same everyday 💝 let’s plan our week, let’s create opportunities where it seems there’s none, whatever appears to look impossible or challenging…Have the determination to conquer it.

Challenge is a word we give to an experience in our life because we decide to.

Create opportunities, don’t create challenges for yourselves.

Face your fears boldly; work on it; make it your friend.

Discover your inner self and unveil the eagle in you.

Shine on Monday to glow everyday.

Why You Should Take Mondays Seriously

It’s amazing how Monday can make one’s heartbeat jack very fast like a volcano is on the verge of eruption. Have you ever noticed how the atmosphere feels like on the street on this day? You see people trying to get to their work places with this gloomy look of fear or stress on their faces, I really don’t know the name to give to the expression on some faces…lol…

A lot of people have tremendously failed to see what they can actually make out of Monday…to tell you the fact some have secretly turned it around to make it a day to pull the week off to a successful one for themselves…how? Good question

Majority don’t see the package being delivered to them; unfortunately it’s the beginning of the week, a beautiful day in disguise, one with lots of promises of fortunes to come in the week so that you can rejoice over it during the weekend.

This is what we should do: Relax! Set your self out of the crowd; let’s have a change of mind about Monday..henceforth it should be the best days of our lives not only the weekends which should be days to rest…set out goals on Mondays. What are the things you need to achieve during the week?…lay them down in a map manner; have a Monday Mantra; see the big Monday picture; look out for Monday wholeheartedly; love Mondays like chocolate; make it a tradition to make it your special day that will set out your weekly trend; don’t fail on Monday so that it won’t create a negativity for the days to follow but note if you fall, you will rise back again stronger than before…

I hated Mondays but as soon as I discovered the beauty in the shell, I began to see it in a different light and it has worked out perfectly for me…life comes with challenges but the way we handle them determines how they treat us…

Have a beautifully blessed week..😘😘😘

Eerie – Monday Moments

That eerie feeling that makes one want to puke, creating agitation, and forming bile in the throat on a Monday is one that a lot of us do go through once in a while. It is similar to that feeling I  have when going for a job interview like my life depends on it.

What are my fears on a Monday?

I hate Monday meetings, unfortunately I can’t avoid them except if I want my subordinates to think less of me.

I hate to think of the fact that I always have to come up with marketing strategies on that day or what would be my importance?

I hate to have to wait all through to Friday to go to the cinema, doing that during the week slows me down.

I hate Mondays especially because I always have headaches from the aftermath of the rigorous brainstorming meeting.

Why do I love Mondays?

It pushes me to achieve great things during the week.

Mondays remind me to be relaxed and be happy.

Mondays make me acknowledge the truth behind life struggle, achievements and survival.

Remember Monday is:

M- Magnanimous

O – Optimistic

N- Neat

D- Determination

A- Astounding

Y- Yipee

Cracking the Nut On Monday

Monday starts a new  working day, much of the weekend fun, ravishing and excitement is back in the knap sack. You’ve been up as early as 4 A.M, plans for the day starts, thoughts about meeting clients, Monday meetings, challenges of having to facing “hard to crack clients” gives one headache.

You are at work right now, and guess you don’t even know where to start. Someone out there is probably having a headache, thinking about how to meet the target, or if a query is coming any time soon. It could as well be that you are thinking of quitting your job. You are almost feeling sick in your guts and wishing you had stayed back in bed. You are probably still on your way to the office having this fear at the pit of your stomach that you might loose your job today!!! Blah, blah, blah.

We all have horrible thoughts on Monday, if not all, then a great percentage of us. The good news is that, this is what Monday actually is:

M- Magnanimous

Today is an opportunity to stand out as a great person, be large at heart, be tolerant to people around you, remember they also wish they are still in bed. Whatever you perceive from people today is just a perception of what is in their own head, don’t take it personal.

O- Optimistic

Say to yourself – I am not a PESSIMIST. Get up, go out there and conquer, today proceeds the journey … be hopeful that you will win the trophy, be affirmative, have that “I can do it spirit,” don’t feel weighed down.

N- Neat

Look exceptionally neat today, it signifies you mean business and want to make progress this week. It profoundly portrays the image of a serious minded person. It speaks VOLUME; Neatness makes us feel that we have to be at the best behavior.

D- Determination

Walk into the office, smile, do not get upset with people or situations today, both are powerless without your reaction. If you are your own boss, set targets for yourself, be up to the task, take your kids to school with the mind set that today is surely certain.

A- Astounding

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today-Abraham Lincoln.

Dazzle, be impressive, be strong at heart-DISTINCT sets you apart.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to LOVE what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, YOU WILL KNOW WHEN YOU FIND IT- Steve Jobs.

Y- Yippee

Friday is TGIF, just as Monday is “TGIM” Be so happy that when others look at you they become happy too.

I hope this makes you have a positive attitude towards Monday, IF not, at least it will prepare you for the journey.

 

Me Getting Inspired on Monday

Have you ever woken up on a Monday morning and you felt like ‘what the hell am I going to do with my life today’? Trust me I’ve been there, still happens in some cases and it’s quite ridiculous. It could sometimes be as a result of energy getting sapped out of you and then you just want to crawl back into bed like a snail going back into its shell😀

I watched a movie yesterday ‘Sunday’ titled ‘The Little Prince’ I had previously read the review before selecting to watch it which I usually do, and it seemed to look nice. At the end of the movie which I watched for over 1 hour, I sat there for almost 30 minutes feeling sorry for myself and I told ‘me’ that I could have spent that quality time participating in the one word prompt than watching this sorry ass of a movie. That’s just how I could have described it, anyways what was I looking for? I thought animated movies are supposed to be for kids. However, I’m an adult but I still love watching them.

me-getting-inspired-on-monday

Back to Monday. On my way to work I remembered the ‘SAM’ which almost drowned my mood yesterday as I hadn’t recovered from it, and I decided to inspire myself with this music…I want to ask a question….What’s your source of inspiration? When you feel you are going down, your emotions are just totally messed up like you’ve been battered at the back of a car boot.

I have various sources of inspiration, it actually depends on my state of mind. Sometimes could be music, movies, don’t get me wrong, not like that mistake I made yesterday…or perhaps reading, driving around town, or just staring at an artwork and imagining things while doing that.

My source of inspiration on a Monday is my blog, reading other blogs and commenting or just listening to music. Inspire yourself on a Monday with something, don’t feel moody….

LOVE YOU…

Boost Your Self Confidence

I have heard of several instances where self esteem is a problem for so many, it has degenerated to a level so high in the life of an individual that they feel they can’t overcome it. It advances with them to adulthood to the extent that some people find it so hard to perform well in interviews, it makes some people avoid socializing, some find it so difficult to do things that will make them happy-because they think they will never be approved of.

It usually arises from early growth, where parents are being overprotective of the child; criticism is also an element, when a child is being pushed to hard, it makes him loose confidence, parents who criticize their children over every little detail or failure are not only killing their confidence but are also crippling their spirit.We as humans will take cognisance of it and decide to use it then bullying sets in.This can only maim an individual development, self esteem, self knowledge and growth. We don’t want this to happen to any of our loved one…

If you grew up this way, it’s never too late to get out of that bondage, that is what is seems to be…Think positive, be optimistic, never allow criticism get to you. People can’t bring you down, they can only try. Don’t allow your feelings be toyed with, you are the determinant of how people treat you, live your heart into their hands, then you are already under their control for manipulation.

Enhancing your self esteem will pave way in facing challenges, it helps you to meet the right people in the right social gathering, It helps you in development of your writing skills and not giving up in what you believe in no matter how many times you fail at it. You want to blog? You want to publish a book? You want to sing? Why not just take one step of confidence today and try whatever is bugging your mind and giving you sleepless nights as long as its’ not a bad thing…

How do you build self confidence? Say to yourself everyday,”I will try harder today, I will be confident today.” Be bold, take informed risks, challenge yourself, love yourself, always remind yourself that you want to succeed at whatever you do but you can only achieve it through confidence. Don’t be too hard on yourself.

Today is Monday! Be confident in achieving success at whatever you will embark on.

Xoxo

 

 

Monday Moments

Wake up to a bright new day,

A day filled with promises and enthusiasm,

Look higher than high,

Letting go of the moments of unjust;

Monday stares at you while you wrap yourself in the quest,

Tools picked out of the crumble,

Lo Monday here I come to conquer,

Goals set,

Action taken,

Motion in progress,

Achievements realized,

Victory is mine for the taking,

I AM A WINNER!!!
