Monday Motivation – Daring to do Things Differently

For those of you who follow my Monday Motivation, I apologise that I didn’t manage to post last week, it was just one of those weeks.  But here we are at the start of another new week and here is this weeks Monday Motivation to get you thinking.

I came across this last week on Facebook and shared it. There are many variations on this quote, the one  below might or might not have been said by Albert Einstein.

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”            Albert Einstein

What do you want to change in your life?

What can you do differently, to get where you want to be?

Try doing something different this week and see what happens.

Let me know how you get on.

I have a lot of things I want to change, so I better get busy changing how I do things in my life.

I hope you all have a productive week.

Monday Motivation – Persistence the Road to Success

I read a post the other day which featured this quote by Calvin Coolidge:

“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

I think along with persistence and determination we need to add in a lot of self belief and confidence in our own abilities.

This quote also links quite well with the idea of persisting and not giving up:

“Life’s real failure is when you do not realize how close you were to success when you gave up.” – Anonymous

So if you are on the verge of giving up keep going that bit long and see what is round the next corner.

When has persistence and determination paid off for you?

Hope you all have a Happy Monday and fabulous week. Wishing you all success in everything you do this week.
