People love motivational quotes. They are one of the most shared pieces of content on every social platform and even rate their own universal hashtags- #qotd, #quoteoftheday, #mondaymotivation, etc.
Many have Pinterest boards filled with inspiring words, although mine is pretty small.
The problem? They make you feel good for about 3 seconds and don’t change anything.
So here’s my challenge- the next one that resonates deeply with you, do something about it.
Why? It raised your dopamine levels for a reason. There was a trigger in those words that your brain or emotions agreed with or wants to strive for.
Write it in dry erase on your bathroom mirror. Repeat it to yourself before every meal for a week. Save it as your phone’s backdrop. Relate it to an event that day and add it to your gratitude journal.
Whatever your method, feel good you’ve taken positive action, or feel good for 3 seconds. Your choice!
(The next one that hits home for me, will be on a #jDaily. #walkthetalk)
