My Reality check-time for some self-motivation!

Last Update: September 26, 2020

Hi Wamily, I hope you are all keeping well. I wish I found the time to write and share a blog more often, but unfortunately, I struggle with the number of hours in my day. Do you know the feeling?

I am aware I have been a bit quiet, and my motivation has been a bit on the lower side as well for various reasons, I am sure we all travel through these stages, its natural right?

My first sale


Yeah, this image tells pretty close how achieving this milestone felt like. In case, you missed it, a little while ago I received my very first sale, (you can read about it here). I can't remember flying that high for quite some time. What a significant milestone to achieve, what a great feeling.

Main while, I think I have bounced back to reality, and the hard work required to bring great results are real. I realize my journey ahead and the many things to learn and improve in. And you know what, that is OK, at the end of the day we have to learn to dance in the rain. We spent most time traveling towards goals; it is essential to enjoy the process and the learning curves.

The ball is in our hands; the action we take will result in the goals we achieve. Today I would like to share a beautiful write up called 'Daydreams', it shows case beautifully the responsibility we have towards our success, and I thought it would be nice to share this with all of you.

Daydreams


Today this beautiful quote popped up as a reminder of a post I shared seven years ago on social media, and I thought It would be an excellent motivational quote to share with you all beautiful people at the start of this weekend.

I am just going to keep it short and sweet today and hope you will enjoy the beautiful write up 'daydreams' from Swami Vivekananda

Daydreams...

Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached. The most important religion is to be true to your nature. Have faith in yourselves. We are responsible for what we are and whatever we wish ourselves to be. We have the power to make ourselves if what we are now has been the result of our past actions. It certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced our present stories; so we have to know how to act.

-Swami Vivekananda


Final thought


We have to know how to act, a very solid and a powerful sentence and one I try to remember in the back of my mind while traveling my journey.

I hope you enjoy this little write up, and it will inspire and motivate you to work hard towards your goals. Let's take the action we need to reach our goals and let's walk step by step and make our dreams come true.

Daydreaming is pleasant; visualization is a great way to make our goals realistic. But we will never arrive on the destination without lots and lots of action being taken.

Let's do it!!

To our success!!

Keep safe and have a wonderful weekend.

Really great post!
Yes, taking action is the starting point of a journey. We can't stand at the start line and wonder what it would be like to win. We have to take the lead and walk as a leader to our own finish line. In order to be, the winners of our personal marathon

It is right Jude, we all travel the same path sometimes faster and sometimes a little bit slower. If we can help others along the way it is a fulfilling way to live.

Looking at the big picture, can be so helpful to level up our horizons. best wishes as you continue to expand your online presence.

Hi Alex, thank you for your support and for sharing your insight.

I suppose no mather the speed we are travelling in; the main thing must be our determination and consistency.

Perhaps the risk of travelling at a slower speed, are slower results what increases the change of demotivation. (This is a big part of my fear).

As a mentor from me told me, many people give up as doubt get the better of them. I always keep those words close in my mind as a good reminder.

Thank you for stopping by Alex, wishing you a wonderful Sunday.

Best wishes,
Jude
