A Little Spark of Motivation

Yesterday was one of those days that I headed out and started to think hard and long about my life. It’s been a tough year full of heartbreaks and losses. Financially I didn’t do that well either so I’m always looking for motivation to get me through the day. However, last week did have its upsides since I discovered some new and inspiring books that I read to help me put things into perspective. Anyway, when I was out with a few friends last night we decided to hang out at a local pub which was pretty empty so it was pretty depressing.

Around 11PM a thought entered my mind which I would like to share with all of you who are having a tough time getting things going for you. If you think long and hard about what I’m about to say then you can gather the motivation to get off your seat and get to work. I asked myself this question…

“There has to be more to life then this?”

If you use this to your advantage then you’ll take a long hard look at your life and if you are NOT happy with where you are then asking yourself this question will get you thinking about how you only live once and this is NOT the way you want to live. The first thought which entered my mind was that I’m here sitting down at this pub with no more than $10 in my pocket and a few hundred dollars in my bank account. I don’t want to spend the rest of my life in this situation because it would be a tough existence and as time goes on it’s not going to get any easier if I don’t make a move right away.

So you know what I decided to do?

I went home and went to work blogging putting tutorials together which brought me closer to my dream of creating a blog which inspires people to succeed online. I felt much better and went to sleep knowing that my day wasn’t a complete waste and I made progress no matter how small but it was a step forward.

If you ever find yourself depressed at the direction your life is heading in then ask yourself… “There has to be more to life then this?”…and I can promise you that you’ll have a spark of motivation that will push you to take immediate actions towards fulfilling your dreams.
