4 Powerful Tools to Motivate You!

Nobody in the world is the same. One might be good at one thing and bad at the other while the other person might be the exact opposite. Similarly, when at times, you lack the most essential thing in life that keeps you going; the other person might be full of it. I am talking about Motivation. In this crazy busy world, we do get frustrated and lose all hopes every now and then. We feel like we have nothing left to work for. When everything seems to go to the left, and all the doors to the right get shut; that’s when you need the help of people like motivational bloggers, podcasts, and books. Yes, the ones who are full of what you lack will definitely give you the will to continue moving. They will help you get up and open all the doors to the right. All you need is to realize that all that you have to do is NOW, cause sometimes NOW becomes NEVER and that’s when you regret. No!! You can’t afford to regret at any time in your life. Never!

“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 Jr.

Motivational Books

  1. You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero

This refreshing must-read inspirational book provides the reader with a guide to creating a life that you love. Jen Sincero offers the reader 27 short chapters packed with captivating stories, humor, sound advice, and simple exercises to help people find and get rid of their self-sabotaging thoughts and habits that prohibit people from achieving the success that they want. After reading this book, you will have a better understanding of why you act the way you do and how to accept the things that you cannot change.

  1. Choose Yourself by James Altucher

Choose Yourself remains my favorite, and I think is one of the single best motivational books around. Because that is the entire point of the book. When it comes to “what” you should invest in to achieve success, his point is to “choose yourself”.

Showcasing real-life interviews and case studies, James shows us how the current world market is ripe for entrepreneurial self-starters to succeed if they invest their energy in themselves.

3.  Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

Written in 1937, this book has become a classic. The text and formatting of the original book are as close as possible to the original release. This book was originally published during the Great Depression and it is about the art of convincing yourself to become wealthy. It addresses the important steps to take and the equally important steps to avoid in this process.

5 Ways To Make a Change in Your Community

So many communities could be much closer-knit and cleaner but no one attempts to make the change. So, why don’t you kick it off and start the change! Here are a few ways to get yourself up and moving in your community.

  1.  Clean up

 Trash is left all up and down roads and grass. Try just going out with a trash bag and picking some of it up. It will make it look so much cleaner and also may motivate others to try to make a change in the community too, setting off a chain of good deeds. This could also be a good bonding time or a little “get to know you session” of someone who you don’t talk too much.

2.  Plant flowers

Now this one might seem a little pointless but trust me, it is well worth it. On my way to work every day, I pass by a patch of flowers spelling out “Coventry” and that small patch of flowers adds a whole new aesthetic to the street and makes it all look a lot better. Just some flowers in your front yard can make a whole new look to your street so give it a try.

3.  Baked Goods

No, not for yourself but for your neighbors. Get yourself out there and just make some new friends. This can be hard for some but in the long run, it will bring your whole community together. Try hosting a get-together and inviting your neighbors so they can get to know others who are a little too shy to introduce themselves.

4.  Overall attitude

This one is pretty straightforward. Being a friendly person will make everyone else feel better as well as make your community more connected. Just giving a simple “hello, how are you?” Or inviting them over for dinner, a drink or whatever you want will work. Just be friendly to them.

5.  Volunteer

When you see that poster on a telephone pole asking for volunteers to help a community pick up, do it! You don’t need to commit your whole day, just a few hours can make all the difference! Even if you don’t volunteer every time, you will still make a difference in the long run. The first step to changing the community is changing the bad habits. So next your free and bored, go out to a community event and help out and don’t sit at home watching whatever you can find on tv.

These are just a few of the ways you can make a change in your community. There are so many more that you can use to make a difference, so what are you waiting for? Go out and start your change!
