Once the wheel stops turning, we are left at a standstill. It’s then at that point we begin to sit in one place and the rut sets in.
Like anything in life, once it stops, it collects moss, the same as a rolling stone that has stopped turning.
So it’s up to us to make sure that big wheel of life keeps turning. Without our drive and motivation we will end up the same as the moss covered stone. And that’s something we really don’t want, because frogs sit on stones covered in moss.
But staying motivated isn’t as easy as flicking a switch and turning on a light. It takes effort, and at times, lots of it. And this is when we need to dig deep and prove to ourselves we really want what’s sitting just out of arms reach.
There are different approaches when searching for motivation, but in the end, no matter how we dredge it up, it gets us there in the end.
Stay strong and positive. Your motivation is there, it’s just hiding amongst the layers of wrapping that comes with life.
There are days when we can see far across the ocean and everything is as clear as day. And then there are other days when no matter how hard we try, everything is about as clear as mud in a beer bottle.
During these times of non clarity we tend to lose sight of the future and the direction in which we want to head, making us doubt our own minds.
It’s not always easy to pick ourselves up and keep going, and we sometimes need a swift kick in the arse to jumpstart us into action. And wherever that kick comes from, it shouldn’t really make much difference. As long as we get going once again.
Most times we are kicked back into action by a family member or a close friend, and without these people in our lives we would easily slip into a rut and head down a slippery path of no return.
It’s those people we need to keep close to our hearts and minds, not just in a time of need, but whenever possible, as they will be there to help us through thick and thin.
