Monday Motivation- Are you wishing?


Stop wishing! Go out there and take action!

Stop wishing.

Start doing.

Have you ever noticed in a conversation a friend says they wish they could do something? And then you catch yourself saying you wish you could do one of your long overdue goals too? It’s a no win conversation that keeps going on and on. Forever.

Get off that crazy conversation roller coaster and “Push the Go Button” inside your self. Jim Rohn an amazing inspirational speaker reminds us that if you are waiting for someone to show up and turn you on, what happens if they don’t show up? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Take some action and get started.

Even if you only take one tiny step in the direction of your goal you are one step closer to getting there. So get out there in the real world and find the book or person that can help you do what you have been wanting to do. Today will go by quickly and you can’t get it back. Start now. Start doing.

Today you are one day closer to you goal

IF you are working towards it.

Do you have a plan for where you are going?

Do you have a plan for what you want to do?

Take 5 minutes today and think about what your plans are. If you aren’t deciding what you want in life other people will decide for you. This lack of planning will cause  you not  to be in control of your life. Go out and change the way you approach life. It’s your life. You get to decide.

Be different. Take charge and start today. I know you have what it takes. We are all given a talent. See what you can do with that talent and GO share it with the world.

Twitter is where the action happens for SoloCeo’s

One of the  important things as Solo CEO of your business is to never let your network stay stagnate. Working in an office by yourself can be the loneliest existence. So on Fridays I strive to seek out new people in the industry that I can connect with,  share ideas, learn new information or just plain socialize. Twitter is one of the best ways out there to do just that sort of mingling.

Some of the greatest people I met this week in the world of small business and leadership industry have really elevated my life and business to a new dimension.


Matt Monge @mattmonge of Musings about HR, leadership and workplace culture.  Cool stuff from Matt that you really should read is on his blog.



Frank Sonnenberg @fsonnenberg This man is awesome. If you haven’t heard of him, don’t miss out. Go to his website and learn all about small business and how to make your business better. Get him in your twitter feed.



Jonah Lupton @jonahlupton @cauzly A new and improved way to fundraise for nonprofits. Jonah also has a personal twitter feed @jonahlupton. He tweets some amazing original maxims that can change your life. Connect with him and create some change for yourself.



Lolly Daskal founder of #leadfromwithin   A chat that I recently discovered and love. It’s filled with content that helps you be a better leader.  Come chat with us on Tuesdays at 8PM EST




Monday Motivation – Plan your break with a motivation gift

Put in the big rocks first…

When Sunday rolls around it marks the end of the last week and beginning of the new week.  I plan out my week to make sure I put in the big stones (events and priorities) first and then add some of the little pebbles (small tasks and routine chores).

But one thing I have started doing is motivating myself to try something new. Often times we get stuck in a rut. At least I know I do. Working day in and day out the routine feels tiresome. So today on my lunch break I grabbed a new magazine ‘Organic Spa’ that I have never seen before. It’s not on my list for today but I’m putting in my planned motivation break.

Are you curious about what a planned motivation break may be? A planned motivation break is where I give myself a little something to look forward to. A small gift or excursion to get myself motivated to finish the tasks and a way for me to try something new. That is part of my rule, trying something new to get me out of regular routine. It helps break up my usual schedule and gives me a fresh perspective on things when I get back to my regular tasks.

Here is a copy of my planned motivation gift. I skimmed through the magazine to make sure it was something that would actually motivate me to do those tasks on my list. Changing my lifestyle to accommodate organics is what I have chosen to do to cut down on my exposure to chemicals and toxicity. So I thought this would be a great way to find out some new information and stay in alignment with my lifestyle while providing a good motivation tool.

Ebooks opportunity that develops yourself and your business

Jim Rohn one of the leaders in personal development says, and I am paraphrasing, that if you want to get better in business you have to get better, you have to work on you not your business.

I believe he is right. The best way to change your life if you don’t like the direction it is taking is to change yourself. Personal development is one of the best ways to move you forward in a positive direction. I read lots of books in the area of personal development. Usually I don’t sure this kind of information, but I realized that the more I share, the more space I make to replenish my own personal growth and I when receive feedback we create a cycle of sharing. It’s a win-win situation.

Today I received an email with a really great personal growth opportunity, and I want to share it with you. But first let me tell you about one of the books in this opportunity.

Chris Guillebeau, author of the $100 Start Up, will teach you how to lead a life of adventure, meaning and purpose – and earn a good living.  In this opportunity you will receive this printed book as well as 18 other eBooks in the following areas.

  • Better blogging
  • Creating a passion-based business
  • Freelancing, writing and art
  • Building confidence and courage
  • Sales and advertising
  • Technology and systems

I am attaching the link so you can go directly to the website and take a look at the opportunity that I purchased.

This is an affiliate link and I am sharing it with you to help you with your personal growth. I purchased this product because it is something that I know will help me.

Check back in the next few weeks, because I will do a book review on Chris Guillebeau’s book.

I plan to continue providing information that will help small business and freelance professionals and those aspiring to break away from the cubicle to get going in the direction of freedom.  What are your favorite personal development books?

Feel free to comment or tweet me @suzettemariel with any questions or comments you may have.
