Motivation Monday 8

motivation MONDAY coach somers

I love this motivation monday quote from Coach Somers which I picked out of the book ‘Tools of Titans’ by Tim Ferriss. You can get it here on amazon if you haven’t read it, I would highly recommend it!

It is so important to enjoy the little things every day rather than finding yourself saying ‘ I will be happy when X happens, I will be happy when I lose X amount of weight; I will be happy when I earn X amount of money; I will be happy when it’s summer; I will be happy when it’s the holidays’ etc etc etc.

You won’t be happy when that time arrives, you will probably recognise it, then move on and strive for something better. We are programmed to always want more.

I am loving documenting my #30B430 project by taking a photograph every day as it is really making me think about what is making me happy each day, what is my motivation that day. Photographs have ranged from a bowl of porridge, to meeting friends, to liking my leggings that day, to simply the sun coming out for 10 minutes! I think it will be great to be able to look back on the full year and see it!

Stop wishing away your days and focus on being present here and now. Look for the little things in each day, the things which make you smile and really appreciate them.

Yes it is great to have a goal and a plan on how to get there, but don’t go full steam ahead with blinkers on to get there. Be mindful and present and enjoy the process.

Love Abi xxxx
