“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing — that’s why we recommend it daily.”Zig Ziglar
I quite agreed with this quote . Just as motivation doesn’t last, so also does bathing. But you don’t stop bathing just because it doesn’t last.
Just as bathing cool and refreshes the body so also does motivation cools, refreshes and renew the mind. That is why you need to always empty your mind of negative emotions. Cleanse it as you do clean your body. Every mind has the proclivity to tilt towards negativity if unattended to.
Those that lives in areas with high temperatures, they will know the importance of regular bathing. There are times you will have to bath, bath and bath again, but you still feel hot and sweaty. You don’t stop bathing just because you keep sweating and feeling the heat of the weather. Same should be done to the mind. The mind can be sometimes weak and prone to be intoxicated with toxic and negative emotions, that is why you need to regularly empty the toxic and negative emotions. Do not give it a breeding space. The more time you allow it to incubate, the more stubborn and difficult it becomes to be removed.
There are times that just a motivational word will be okay for the day, at other times, you need to do it over and over again.
Just as you cannot clean yourself unless you remove your clothes, so also you cannot get rid of the negative and toxic mindsets without deliberately removing them.
Your greatest motivator should be the word of God and yourself. Nobody can do it better. Just as it is abnormal to bath an adult, so it is also abnormal to always wait for people to motivate you. Do it yourself over and over again until you’re motivated.
Don’t just be concerned and contented with having a pretty/handsome face, pay attention to your mind too.
You have the right to be motivated.
