I can honestly say that I have never been so motivated in my life! In the past I've been motivated for a few hours or even a few days and then the excitement fades. This time I've been energized and focused for months.
I think that my sustained motivation can be attributed a combination of things.
1. I am finally focusing on myself.
2. Immersing myself in motivational quotes.
3. Spending my time listening to podcasts instead of music sometimes. (I think that balance here is key!)
I wasn't really big on social media until I started this site. I was proud of what I was doing and I wanted to share it with as many people as possible. So many of you have let me know how sharing my journey has helped you on your own journeys. The more positive feedback I got the more I wanted to share! Since I've been on Instagram and Twitter and Facebook, I've found a lot of inspiring quotes. (I also love BrainyQuote!)
One technique that I've been employing over the past several months is choosing a quote to use as my lock screen wallpaper. This serves as a constant reminder every time I look at my phone. The first quote I chose was this one:
That was the day before I started this site. Here's a shot of the one I am using right now.
I have learned never to underestimate the power of words!
