Welcome to another #MOTIVATIONALMONDAY! I’ve been reading this book called “You are a Badass” (which, btw, would HIGHLY recommend) by Jen Sincero. In the book, she mentions a quote that I have loved for a while so I thought it was the perfect one to use for today’s motivational quote. So..let’s just get to it, shall we?
BAM! It kinda hits ya, doesn’t it? But like in a good way, in an eye-opening, mind-awakening kind of way. The quote is pretty self-explanatory, but I have some input I want to add in about it.
The first thing is I think this quote is great for reflection. It makes you think about to all the excuses you have ever made about why you didn’t or couldn’t do something and realize your goal really wasn’t THAT important to you. Not to mean that in a bad way at all. It’s good because you can see and realize what truly is important to you, your life and your goals. After all, you should not be wasting precious time or energy on things that don’t excite you or that are not important to you and who you are and want to be.
But, of course, this is #motivationmonday so there has to be something inspiring in this quote, and there is!! This quote is a great reminder to never give up on what is truly important to you; that just because one door slams in your face doesn’t mean there aren’t other doors or even a window open somewhere else…you just have to find it! Will it be easy? Probably not. But, it will be so worth it when you persevere, finally achieve your goals and realize how much stronger the journey has made you. I think sometimes we want things to be “easy” and when we find no short-cuts or try once and fail, we make up an excuse. But it’s not just about the end destination; it’s about overcoming every obstacle, going out to fight for what you really want, and loving every minute of your journey to get there. Now, that’s finding a way!
