Worth It! (Things to try, read, watch, hear, and discuss)

I have two tough weeks behind me and another one ahead. In fact, I had so much work to do this weekend that I didn’t have a chance to write my regular Sunday morning post. So instead, here’s a quick post for #MondayMotivation, because I think most of us could use a little bit of mindset support these days.

A Song to Get You Going

“The Champion” remains one of my favorite songs/videos because of the musical energy, positive lyrics, and inspiring images.

For more great motivational music, see this post and this post.

A TED Talk That Inspires

Amy Purdy’s story always reminds me of our capacity to overcome obstacles and live our best lives.

I hope you all have a great Monday and a fantastic week!

    No matter how bad we think things are, others have more obstacles to overcome. It is not the obstacles we face that define us, it is how we face the obstacles.. Only we can change the reality. Thanks for sharing the TED talk Amanda. Hope you have an inspiring week. Allan

    A double dose of motivation for Monday. I’d heard the song before, but I’d never seen the video. Totally uplifting! I’m a huge fan of TED Talks, and this is one of the better ones. It’s a great reminder not to complain about our minor problems. Pick ourselves back up and get after it.
