Zig Ziglar said it best:
People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.
I listened to a podcast with David Goggins where he said something that really resonated with me. He said once you leave your house, the war starts. That you need to build your amour every morning.
It’s really true, the world isn’t going to be on your side and you have to be strong. Starting the morning off with the right mindset builds your amour and changes everything.
Organizing isn’t something that is fun for many people, they find it to be an annoying task. This list of organizing quotes will help you change your mindset and inspire you to get organized.
If you love quotes, you are likely a motivated person and someone who is always striving to be better. Words have a powerful impact on all of us. Whether it’s a conversation with a spouse, reading a book, or listening to a podcast, you are reading or listening to words. They either help us improve or move us in a different direction.
For years, I’ve heard from successful people about journaling and how it’s helped them. As someone who is always trying to be better, I never got it until I read The Miracle Morning.
This book was a game changer. It gave me direction on how to live and have a better morning. I finally understood the importance of journaling. I ended up using The Miracle Morning Journal for an entire year.
Personal View of Journaling
The thought of journaling honestly sounded like an annoying task to be completely honest. I had always viewed journaling of something that was going to take forever, there’s no way I could journal quickly.
While I don’t use the journal anymore, I highly recommend starting there if the thought of journaling sounds dreadful because this journal will show you that it literally takes minutes.
If you’ve never journaled before, start out with a physical journal. Seeing the physical presence of a journal will help make this become a habit. Habits are the key to success. It’s much easier to clear out a reminder on your smartphone than to ignore a journal.
Make sure to use a pen you love, I mean really love. Love it so much that the thought of losing it frightens you. Now, this sounds extreme however you are not going to enjoy journaling if you don’t love the pen you are using. Use the same pen every time, buy multiples of the same pen and the same color. This will help with the fluidity of writing.
In addition to using a pen you love, use some highlighters to highlight your favorite text. When you journal, you’ll go back and read how far you’ve come. It’s easier to see important text with a highlighter.
I’ve used the G-2 Pilot pens for about a year now and have fallen in love with them. I found this mega pack at Costco and have been hooked, although I’m hooked on everything that is basically sold at Costco 🙂
Sharpie highlighters are the ones I’ve used for years. We’re talking like junior high years. I’ve steered away from Sharpie a time or two when the budget was tight but end up regretting it every time so I just stick with Sharpie.
