Monica’s Motivational Moment: Upon Our Shoulder

Trying to please, placate and play small will not satisfy nor silence our critics. We can spend so much energy feeling demoralized by discouraging comments, or paralyzed by unsupportive colleagues and family members.

We must find the courage to move forward in commitment and boldness. The responsibility of manifesting our passions, purpose and pursuits rests squarely and lovingly upon our shoulders.

Monica’s Motivational Moment: Where We Are At This Moment

We readily celebrate the accomplishments of those we admire, applauding them for having the courage and persistence to achieve their passions, purpose and pursuits.

We see their glory but we do not know the full story. We do not know their private thoughts of doubt, uncertainty and frustration. We were not there when they were moments away from surrendering after fear left them battered and bruised.

We only see this side of their victory, forgetting that they too had a beginning, or struggled with misfortune, missteps or wavering faith. Let us not be discouraged as we walk through our valley moments. It is all part of the journey.

Monica’s Motivational Moment: To Be Bold and Brave

We all have tough days when we secretly wish we could hide from the world, shy away from our brilliance, or pretend the voices of judgment and looks of disappointment don’t matter. While others applaud what they see in us, we try desperately to mask our insecurities, impatience and resentment.

Those are the exact moments when our dreams and passions cry out to us to be bold and brave. On this day, let us identify and act upon one thing that scares us just a little, or makes our stomachs queasy with uncertainty, or is outside of what is expected and comfortable. Some of the best fruit is often found at the end of the hardest to reach limb. It is where epiphanies, courage and our miracles are found.

Monica’s Motivational Moment: Safety Zones

We often stay put in our safety zones, hoping that our dreams will be realized risk-free. We want to play it safe in familiar territory. But daring to go outside our safety zone is where miracles happen. Yes, there are no guarantees, but faith and action are there to guide us.

Power Over Our Thoughts

We have total control over our thoughts of scarcity, self-doubt, regret and fear. We can ignore item, push through them, or surrender to them. We can tame, reject or change those thoughts. It is our decision.
