Why don't people like Mondays?
Social media is a powerful tool, and yet one of the messages we seem to receive from it on a VERY regular basis is that people need a bit of a boost on a Monday morning...
We're huge fans of Jon Gordon, and really believe him when he says:
"Mondays are a great day to focus on what you get to do rather than what you have to do."
So you're stuck in traffic?
- At least you have a car!
You're working a job you don't like?
- You have a job!
You've got a mortgage to pay?
- You have a home!
It's not easy to stay positive - but why start a day negatively in the first place?
Gary Vaynerchuck went viral last year for telling people who "live for the weekend" that their "sh*t is broken", and again - we're given to agree with him there!
We spend approximately one-third of our week working (or in school) - we shouldn't need two days in every seven to mentally pick ourselves up from the damage that we perceive is being done to us from our work!
For the athletes out there - you're even more fortunate...
Aside from having friends and team-mates, and experiences which will last a lifetime, you have a release that keeps you healthy and focused - even if the season is over - you can go scrimmage, work out or get some shots up!
But motivation alone won't make you a better athlete, and trying to build your performance based solely on external motivation is like building a house on a foundation of sand.
In addition to being self-motivated, you need a plan of action to improve - and that's where we can help!
Our coaches can work with you to build a programme with you to help you boost your backpack and make next season your best ever, just get in touch to arrange your workouts... and if you are in need of a little extra motivation or inspiration - then follow us on twitter, where we share a little something with you every day to help you to keep your fire stoked!
