Happy #MotivationalMonday (05/03/21) Part Two In the book, Think Like A Warrior, Darrin Donnelly speaks about the importance of being gr ateful, loving what you do and attacking “each day with joy and enthusiasm” (p.226). Approaching each day with this type of positive mindset allows you to create and capitalize on the day ahead. When you are focused on the passion and love you have for your purpose in life, it is hard for negativity to creep in; and if it does, remember to a
Happy #MotivationalMonday (04/26/21) #Urgency “The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry out their dream.” – Les Brown Les Brown’s quote
Happy #MotivationalMonday (04/19/21) #Perseverance
Mental toughness is something we all strive for. However, it is difficult to achieve until you’ve faced and persevered through life’s struggles.
Although adversity is not something we welcome with open arms, it is a part of the formula for growth. So the next time you are faced with adversity, remember to persevere! On the other side of that struggle will stand a much stronger and better YOU!

Happy #MotivationalMonday (04/12/21) #Motivation #Attitude In society we are sometimes consumed with someone’s ability, which is a great foundation to success. However, there is much more involved in the recipe of success. A person’s motivation and attitude are a couple of important ingredients that allow someone to reach their pinnacle and keep pushing the limits. What are you currently motivated for and how is your attitude when you experience setbacks? If an adjustment is
Happy #MotivationalMonday (04/05/21) #Energy For over five years now I have been consistently writing Motivational Mondays. I love finding messages/quotes and writing up my interpretation to bring motivation to someone’s life. It brings a therapeutic feeling to my own struggles of adversity. It keeps my mind in the state of a growth mindset, which is the “why” behind the creation of my foundation. However, at times life becomes busy for all of us and you lose that motivatio
Happy #MotivationalMonday (03/29/21) #Mindset Too many times our pain and/or failure discourages us from trying. Why?! Are we afraid of looking bad or putting ourself out there in a vulnerable state? Research anyone who is or was successful, and I guarantee you will find something very similar to this Jordan message. Motivation is a very powerful thing when driven by the correct mindset. Which mindset have you had lately when it comes to your failure/pain? David Bultema - Fou
Happy #MotivationalMonday (03/22//21) Part One In the book, Think Like A Warrior, Darrin Donnelly speaks about focusing on things you can control, specifically effort and attitude. Both effort and attitude happen in the present, which is when we have control over both things. We cannot control the future or the past, which is why focusing on the present moment is so important. Donnelly states, “If I truly give my maximum effort to be the best that I can be today, I will be su
Happy #MotivationalMonday (03/15/21) #Gratitude It is so easy to focus on the negative things around us. Those are the things that are constantly challenging us, that we strive to get past. However, focusing on those treasures in life instead can help us through those tough challenges. Treasures are not necessarily material, and our most valuable treasures rarely are. Take a look around and count your treasures. Really focus on those positive things in your life; they may
Happy #MotivationalMonday (03/08/21) #Courage When I think of a Lion, I always think of leadership. They are the “King” of their domain. Most people recognize that they have a lot of courage and tenacity, which gives them the title of being leaders of the animal kingdom. They are at the top, which is where we want to be with in our own lifestyle; however, that is easier said than done in many cases! Lions, like us, are not born with COURAGE. It is something they work on E

The final lesson I would like to focus on from Darrin Donnelly’s “Old School Grit” is Rule #15 – Don’t Quit. Don’t Ever Quit! As I am finishing the last chapter of this wonderful book, Donnelly explains, “The successful person is not the person who goes through life and makes the fewest mistakes. The successful person is the person who is willing to make mistakes, over and over, and keep getting back up to try again. The su
