It is Monday. A new week filled with challenges and opportunities, but the unspoken enemy of weekend lovers. Hang with me here … I love my weekends too, but I also love the work I do. If your Mondays are difficult, maybe you need to make a change in your life?… Until you decide, here are a few of my favorite quotes to help inspire you and fuel your success!

“To be successful, the first thing to do is fall in love with your work.” –Sister Mary Lauretta

Yes, Sister Mary Lauretta! If you love your work, you won’t have the Sunday evening anxiety and Monday morning blues!

“We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are.” -Max Depree

When you remain the same, your situation will remain the same. Don’t fear change. Embrace it! On the other side of it you just might find the miracle you’ve been waiting for!

 “God’s plan for us is usually where our passions, our purpose, and our capabilities intersect.” -Bob Goff

When you wake up on Monday morning, you should feel motivated to start your
week as you are heading out to serve the world in a role where your passions,
purpose, and capabilities intersect.

“To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.” -Joseph Chilton Pearce

Mistakes happen. The only way to reach our goals is to push ourselves out of
our comfort zones, lose our fear of being wrong, and stop living in fear.

“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.” -Roald Dahl

Mondays are the perfect day for a fresh start! Become an enthusiast in life
and go out and make something GREAT happen today!

She understood that the hardest times in life to go through were when you were transitioning from one version of yourself to another.” -Sarah Addison Allen

Yes, hard times bring transformation. Think of the caterpillar morphing into a butterfly. Not so easy, but that radical transformation turns into something of great beauty!

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” -Nelson Mandela

Stop worrying about what someone else might think and start living the life
you are meant to live. Change your mindset, change your life!

Speaking of worrying about what others think … well, remember what Eleanor Roosevelt said …“You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.”

It’s Monday. Whatever obstacle you are facing, it’s not permanent … and “for what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald.

YES!!!! It is never too late to be whoever you want to be. Don’t let Monday slow you down.
