I was feeling a little less than motivated today so I took to the Internet and found some inspiration.
I’m laughing as I write this because some of this stuff is just hilarious.
Anyways… If you ever feel less than ready to attack the day, I’ve collected some motivational quotes, memes, videos and books to get you going.
Here we go!
Motivation doesn’t need to be serious. We can have fun with it. I looked through over 100 memes and these are my top 4 favorites.
Talk about one of the best movie series of ALL TIME. Mr. Rocky Balboa laying down some life lessons to his son in the sixth movie of this epic franchise.
I get chills watching each of these, but maybe no more than I do while watching AL Pachino in the class movie Any Given Sunday.
There are few things as powerful as a story. This video reminds me of the days I trained for the CrossFit Games. There is almost a romantic feeling when looking back at the hard work that helped me achieve that goal. I can run through a wall after watching this video. I’d be surprised if you don’t feel the same.
Motivation can be SOOOO cheesy. I try not to read any of these quotes in my mom’s voice. I love her but sometimes when she says, “You can do anything”, I can’t help but cringe.
Imagine some badass Navy Seal is reading these to you.
Granted, I do believe my mom can take on a Navy Seal if she had to. She’s pretty tough.
“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” -Martin Luther King
“He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.” -Muhammad Ali
“You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
“Just do it!” -Shia LaBeouf
I am at my most productive on days where I’m reading or listening to a book. Probably because the only books I spend time on are either self-help or military novels. I save the entertaining stuff for movies and TV shows. Don’t get me started on the Game of the Thrones ending right now (sigh).
Below are some of my favorites as well as a couple I have my eyes on for future reads.
The Secret by Rhonda Byrne
This first one is probably on the top of most people’s list of motivational books. “In The Secret, she explains with simplicity the law that is governing all lives, and offers the knowledge of how to create – intentionally and effortlessly – a joyful life.” -thesecret.tv
The Red Circle by Brandon Webb
The Red Circle has been on my radar for a while. From what I hear, this book will light a fire in your ass when you read about Brandon Webb’s life as a Seal. “Brandon Webb’s experiences in the world’s most elite sniper corps are the stuff of legend. From his grueling years of training in Naval Special Operations to his combat tours in the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan, The Red Circle provides a rare and riveting look at the inner workings of the U.S. military through the eyes of a covert operations specialist.” -Amazon.com
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill
While this book is based on the principle of accumulating wealth, while reading you’ll feel inspired by the success stories of some of the most influential people in American history. “In Think and Grow Rich, Hill draws on stories of Andrew Carnegie, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and other millionaires of his generation to illustrate his principles.” –Amazon.com
Whatever life throws at you, remember what the very wise Shia LaBeouf once said…
