Monday Motivation: When People Have Nothing Nice to Say: How to Carry On

It’s tough to carry on when you feel like people have nothing nice to say to you. You try to make an effort to improve your life, and perhaps they’re the first to pounce on any weakness you have to see if you’ll crack. Don’t let “them” destroy you!

It’s tough to be around people who don’t believe in you when you’re doing your best and making your best effort. If you’re dealing with this today, try not to let it get to you too much. Cry if you must, and maybe take a nap. Then, hopefully when you wake up you’ll feel more optimistic that you don’t have to give up on your dreams.
Oh, and if you’re pissed off because people are telling you that you need a day off, they’re probably right. You can’t control the fact that maybe your spouse or children are lazy and don’t do enough work to help you pay the bills. However, you can’t keep going the way you are if you’re burnt out. Trust me I know. 
In fact, it’s now a little after 4pm. I’m thinking its not too late for a nap myself. If you’re still working, maybe take a day off tomorrow and sleep all day. Then, get up early the following day and you’ll feel like it’s a brand new start for you. 

More Monday Motivation: Don’t Quit Now! It’ll Give Other People Too Much Satisfaction

Don’t quit now.There’s too many people who would feel like they won the game if you do. It would give the people who taunted you, belittled you, and put you down too much power. This is my Monday motivation for the week even though my morning was nothing but crap:

I’m not going to give up and neither should you!

Whatever it is that you want in live, do everything you can in your power to make it happen. Get the right training, find funding to secure the equipment you need, and don’t be afraid to ask other people for help. Take a break once in a while and always get a good night’s rest, but don’t give up until you know you have taken all the action you can. 

A wise growing entrepreneur understands how much work goes into having a business. Be careful not to burn yourself out. However, remember that persistance will increase your financial reward.

Got the Monday Blues? The More Failure a Person Has in Life…

every man and woman




Do you feel like a total failure in life?

Do you especially feel this way every Monday? If so, you probably have the beginning-of-the-week blues, as usual.

It happens to everyone from time to time, including me. You don’t even know how many times I’ve wanted to quit my business. Sometimes, the only reason I carry on is because I want people who have been down tough roads believe they can succeed.

We all have to talk ourselves out of this slump so we can make this the most productive week ever!

Remember, failure is only temporary. In fact, it’s not as if you failed at all. Your life is “to be continued” tomorrow, next week, and next year if no unforeseen accident takes your life.

Therefore, try not to stay blue all day – or at least cheer up by tomorrow. The world needs you!

More Monday Inspiration: “Do What’s Right…”

do what you know is right.I’ll be the first to tell you I’ve done plenty wrong in my life. However, I also know it’s never late to turn my life around, and I would say the same for everyone else. In the process, I want to do more of the right thing again, just because it is the right thing to do. I encourage everyone else to do the same.

Running a Business with a Conscience

Business owners face dilemmas every day, especially when struggling financially.  They might feel a bit desperate and tempted to take on work that otherwise does not match up with their moral or ethical beliefs. However, they must ask themselves whether or not they will regret it later. Is it really worth it?

Should business owners decide to pursue a particular market just because they’re desperate to make money?

This answer lies within each individual. Some people choose to compromise during tough times, such as during a recession or right after the holiday season. However, we all have to ask ourselves where in the end it will lead us? Doing what we don’t even believe in causes us to not believe in ourselves, and at that point, no one else will believe in us either. We have to have faith we can make it without succumbing to moral degradation – neither in business nor in our personal lives.

For The Growing Entrepreneur — Kick those Monday Blues with some more Inspiration

Here’s one more quote for the growing entrepreneur as well as the wannabe business owner: 

Kick those Monday blues! This inspiration should get you through to at least “hump day.” But seriously, if you can’t cheer up by Wednesday, then maybe you should either take Thursday off to look for new work, sleep all day, or go out to the club and dance off your stress!

Monday Inspiration for The Growing Entrepreneur — “If I’ve Never been Bound…”

I pondered whether or not to include this on a business blog. I almost put this on one of my personal ones. However, the  kind of work I do blends my personal like with my professional life. This to me speaks of trials I’ve been through during which I cried, “Why God! Why?!” I don’t have all the answers, but this piece really speaks out to me. 

I don’t fully grasp the meaning of it yet. However, like the poetry I read in college, my subconscious reacts before I even have time to decipher it. I at least know this quote has something to do with appreciating freedom after having been imprisoned. I took this to mean an emotional bondage, but it could apply to any situations after which you broke free. 

Some Monday Inspiration — Quote from Albert Enstein

Year after year I take the advice to stay diligent. After all, the Bible says that if you don’t work you don’t eat. Anyone who has any amount of self-respect at all wants to pull as much of their own weight in life as they can, even if they have a physical or mental limitation. However, we can all lose focus on what’s important — fortune or fame or just to make an impact on the world?

We all have to remember why we ever decided to have our own business in the first place. It’s not just for ourselves so we can work whenever we want. Everyone needs a greater purpose or it’s just not worth it. I believe the Bible as true, but even some of the world’s greatest philosophers — regardless of how they feel about the Bible — also teach us that we need a purpose.

I want to succeed, but I also want to remember what’s really important: 

(Of course, this quote applies to women, too. I just left it as is. Oh, but this one is not from the Bible, it’s from Albert Einstein.)
