3 Things You Can Do To Get Motivated & Inspired

Hey Fam and friends! I hope that you are doing well and that you are crushing your dreams and goals for 2023. Don’t give up on what you have set before you. Pick it back up and get back to it. Today, I will be sharing some tips of what I do to get motivated and inspired. This can be for anyone. Maybe you’re a student who needs to crank out that paper or a mom who needs to finish decorating their kids room. I want to share what I do to help you.

3 Things I do Motivated & Inspired

1. Declutter and Have a Clean House & Work Space

Over the past 2 years I’ve discovered when my energy levels are down for getting work done, it’s usually because there’s mess around. I kid you not, when there are dishes in the sink, clothes that need to be washed, a desk that needs to be cleaned off, and I could go on and on.

Psychologically, these things burden me down and kill my energy. It makes me feel overwhelmed and sometimes defeated. I flourish in a clean environment. I like having everything in it’s right space (could possibly be a bit of a neat freak) but It’s the only way I am able to get motivated and stay inspired when having to work on a project or edit a youtube video. I believe if you declutter the mess and destractions around you, You can then focus and get that thing done that you’re actually suppose to get done.

2. Reset & Do Something Different

When I feel like I’m in need of motivation or need a fresh breath of air, I get up and walk my dog. I put myself into the sun and feel the wind and we walk a mile or two. It’s crazy how I almost never would go on walks until I got him. I think the walks have become more beneficial to me than him. I look forward to them all the time. I almost everytime come back with some new energy and fresh clear perspective and I can get back to work. I also do this on my lunch breaks. Working from home sometimes can make you feel like you are in a prison chained to a laptop. I also find switching it up and doing something different helps motivate you. I almost never take the same route to get to a destination. Sometimes you may bump into something new along the way. I know you might be saying it’s just traffic, but you would be surprised by something as small as taking a different route could help you and inspire you.

3. Reading a New Book

Now this one has helped me tremendously. I made it my goal to read one book a month when the new year started and right now I am on track. I love reading a book to discover that there’s someone out there that thinks like me or has gone through the same stuff I’ve gone through. I also love reading to learn something new. I will also say, make it fun. If you make it a chore then you probably are less to feel inspired. So find a book that is interesting. Fiction is fun, let your imagination go with the writer or learn about a new perspective. I’ve been on the self help kick and financial literacy path along side of reading the bible and tech news. Balance matters.

I hope that these 3 things will help you find inspiration and motivation because were not robots. It would be nice to delete and delete memory and start over or upgrade processors. Remember to be kind to yourself, listen to yourself and make it happen

Be Blessed!


5 Things I Would Tell My Younger Self

Hello Family. I hope March is going well for you and that you are hammering those goals and dreams. As you know, I like to spend time reflecting on the good and the bad things of this journey called life. I belive that it helps you in your current state of mind and also keeps you on track for what’s ahead and gives you direction for your future. Today, I want to share 5 things that I would tell my younger self today. Of course if I had a time machine I would just go back and make those changes but unfortunately that cannot be done at this time so this would have to do.

1. Relax

I remember when my 30th birthday was approaching and I was feeling overwhelmed with anxiety because I felt like I had not accomplished enough. I believe this feeling came up because I was comparing myself to other people and social media. I remember talking to my tribe and telling them what I was feeling and to sum it up they all told me to RELAX. You are doing just fine where you are. Actually, you are doing much better than most. I remember closing on my house before my 30th birthday which was a huge accomplishment, but I felt like this should have been house #2. Three years later, I got over that anxiety quick and started relaxing more and taking in the wins and lows and just going with the flow.

2. You don’t need to know the outcome

Man, I would tell myself this in heartbeat. I can remember so many missed opportunities because I would overthink everything and if it didn’t add up, I would drop out. If I couldn’t see the finish line being attainable, I most definitely wouldn’t try. I developed this trait at a very age and only about 5 years ago I finally learned when to turn it on and turn it off. There are cases and places where the overthinker would need to be in the room. I’ve learned by being a overthinker, I am able to give different point of views or different perspectives about one situation via different angles. A lot of us can’t do that because sometimes were coming from a emotional state and we base everything on how we only feel but I’ve learned over the years to just step out on faith. Excercise faith and use it.

3. You don’t have to wait for anybody

Growing up, I always felt like the odd ball in my family. There were things I wanted to do when nobody else was doing. I wanted to learn golf while everybody was playing basketball and football. I was more focused on what people would say about it. Would they say it wasn’t a real sport? So because I didn’t see many people doing it or it not being popular in my family I didn’t do it. I now know that doing those things is what makes me uniquely me.

4. Leave the Nest

I remember when I first went off to college, I became homesick. I was only 2 hours away from home but It felt like many miles away. If I could do it all over again I would most definitely went away to another state. I also remember once I got my car in college, I started going home less. It got easier to stay away. I would visit my mom but I would be ready to go back home. I believe I had gained a sense of independance that I could actually take care of myself. I think the sooner you do this the quicker you can face life’s challenges and get a head start.

5. Love Me

When I tell you comparison kills, I should be wearing the T-shirt that says it. I can remember not loving me for all of my quirkiness. I developed a huge love for tech in my younger years. While kids were asking for playstations and nintendo, I was asking for a palm pilot. I could take a computer apart and put it back together when I was just 10 years old. I also shyed behind this and acting like I didn’t know much just to fit in with other kids but I most definitely would tell myself to LOVE ME because I honestly now Love every part of the man I’ve became and that I still am becoming.

I want you to take time a reflect. What would you tell your younger self. about life?
