What Do You Want? (Motivation)

So many times, I have come across many people who come to me to help them because they do not know what they should be doing? They say things like: “Should I be doing this or that” or “go this way or that way”?  By God’s grace I have been able to help many based on what my own coach showed me many years ago…..

So, when I get this question of “help me”, I still end up having to ask, “What do you want” because sincerely, if I do not know what you need help with, I can’t help you. That is the truth!  And nobody can help you if you do not know what you want. This is the honest truth. It is okay not to be sure or be clear about what you want but you MUST have an idea of what is it you want.

Today on Motivation for Monday, I will be sharing TIPS on how to know what you want so you can live a meaningful, fulfilling and purposeful life.

 

What Price Will You Pay For PURPOSE? ( Motivation)

I attended the Excel Women conference in London about 8days ago and sitting down in that conference, I couldn’t help but think about the price I paid to attend that conference. Not necessarily the monetary aspect of things but going out of my way to actually attend the conference. We had a family holiday planned so I went to England first for the conference and then back to Ireland and then back again on the road again with the family. It was a lot to deal with but hey, I did it. #Notcomplainingjust thankfulthatIcould.

As I sat down there at the conference with about 150+ women, I couldn’t but notice how expectant, “charged” and enthusiastic the women in there were, waiting to learn, connect and “fellowship” with one another. Today, on Motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, what price will you pay for purpose?

 

 

Audacity to Go After Your Dreams (Motivation)

3How will it make you feel if you take a bold step and go after the life you want? How would it make you feel if after thinking about something, you just don’t stop there but go ahead and make that thing happen for yourself? How excited would it be for you if right before your very eyes, what you have always dreamed of comes to pass? For example, pass that exam, launch that business, move to another city, ask that girl or boy out or whatever it is it you want? How would that make you feel?

Today on Motivation for Monday, I am writing to encourage you on what I call, “Audacity to Go After Your Dreams”

 

 

Your Mind, Your Body, Your Soul (Motivation)

The mind, the body and soul are 3 interlinked parts. One does not function without the other. When all 3 are cared for, we live a more fulfilling life and are happier. See, out of your mind is where everything starts – whether good or bad. And your body is the carrier of all things that comes from your mind and then your soul is the receiver of what your mind and body say.

Today, on motivation for Monday, I am writing to encourage you on the importance of caring for the mind, the body and the soul. Let’s check it out……….

 

HOW TO PLAN & ACHIEVE SMART GOALS IN THIS STAY AT HOME SEASON

I don’t know about you BUT it is my own 6th week of working from home with limited movement out of the house. While some of us have full time or day jobs we still do from home, some of us do not. For those of us who work, many of us have always desired to find time to work on some of our personal goals. For those of us who currently do not work, some of us have the will to do something new but do not know how and some of us can’t just figure out when to start. Today, I am writing to share some of the tips I am currently using in this lockdown/stay at home season. Yes, this lockdown is a season and I join every “believer” from different parts of the world to say, “this too shall pass”. Let’s check out these tips….

 

MY EXERCISE & FITNESS ROUTINE (“How I Stay Thin”) + WHY EVERYONE MUST EXERCISE

I have always known that to take care of others effectively, I have to take care of myself first, this is my own personal philosophy. But sincerely, nobody can give what they don’t have anyways. In caring for me, I focus on taking care of my body, soul and spirit. And for that reason, one of the ways I take care of myself is that I take care of my physical by exercising to stay strong, fit and energetic and NOT necessarily to stay thin……this is a bonus we get when we exercise.

 

As requested by you, here is my exercise and fitness routine video. Like I said in this week’s motivation, “Eat That Frog” and also in this video, no matter how thin you are, we all need some form of exercise…….

 

You Can Do This (Motivation for Monday)

In the past couple of weeks, I received many messages than I would normally get. When I read through all these messages and met up with some of the amazing people who wrote to me, I can conclude that a lot of people want more for their lives, want to grow, want to contribute to the society and economy at large, people want to use their gifts to help others and in turn fulfill their own purpose. Today’s blog will encourage someone who is on the cross roads of whether or not to go ahead and start working on the huge burden and desires of their hearts.

 

Delayed Gratification :: How to & Advantages

A lot of times in life when we want something, many of us want it now and once we think about it, we want it at all cost.  It even gets interesting that when we achieve a goal, we believe we deserve a treat so to say and we go on and treat ourselves. Well, treating ourselves is one thing, getting that treat at the right time is another……

I had the opportunity to share with the Youths I mentor about Delayed Gratification – How to Achieve it and the Advantages of delayed gratification. This footage was a very long one but I managed to reduce it to about 10 minutes…Please watch below….

 

Live Out Your Name (Motivation for Monday)

I first wrote a shorter version of this post on Facebook as I was inspired to write last Friday. By the time it was evening, the post had “gone viral” (gathered more reaction than normal). Since many people related to the post, I thought to share the extended version of the post to inspire and encourage you dear readers as always. So, today, I will be writing to encourage you on the importance of living out your name.

 

You Are Not What You’ve Been Through (Motivation for Monday)

When we go through challenges in life, a lot of us tend not to see ourselves beyond where we are. We blame ourselves, we belittle ourselves and a lot of times, a lot of us just stay down with no plan of getting up again from our setbacks. Staying down is easy because just anyone can stay down. However, it takes boldness, courage, determination and self-motivation to rise again after a set back. We have to understand that, the only way we can rise again after a setback is that we must do whatever it takes to rise again. Today on motivation for Monday, I am writing to encourage you to see yourself beyond where you are now and what you may have gone through.

 

In Your Pain, There is Purpose (Motivation for Monday)

Maxi_skirt

Every Monday on this blog, I write to encourage and inspire you to be who you were called to be and I do that by sharing my own story repeatedly and truthfully highlighting why I started the things I do now, what I have achieved, where I am now and where I truly want to go. Today is not different because I will be sharing to encourage you. As I finished servicing my Facebook page last Saturday, Facebook fed me with this powerful post I felt truly connected with and I thought to share it with you. So, today’s motivation is half mine and half someone else’s. I will be sure to credit the original writer – Temi Koleowo…..

 

Dreams Don’t Work Unless You Do (Motivation for Monday)

I am a Dreamer and I love to encourage as many people as possible to dream too because dream is cheap. Today is a very important and extremely busy day for me but my commitment to encourage you still stands come that what may, I will always drop you a line or two or more. This one will be more than a line or two and I hope you are ready to read so you can dream more……

 

SILENT EVERYTHING & LISTEN TO YOU (Motivation for Monday)

It is not so obvious but the same letters that spell the word silent actually spells the word listen. Let me list both words below and what they mean:

SILENT: not speaking. Silence can also mean the lack of audible sound, or the presence of sounds of very low intensity. The word silence can also refer analogously to any absence of communication or hearing, including in media other than speech and music

LISTEN: to make an effort to hear something; be alert and ready to hear something

 

Today on motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, “silent everything and listen to you”

 

 

The More You Do Anything (Motivation for Monday)

If you have ever wondered what the name of this blog – Moj In Touch means, here you go…..It simply means MOJ from my name and IN TOUCH from the situation I found myself. 

So, IN TOUCH in my world simply means to be IN TOUCH with who you really are irrespective of your circumstance or status (single, married, mum, dad, unemployed, redundant or broke etc). Being in touch also means, even if your circumstance or status changes, your life goals, vision, aspirations and desires don’t have to change.

Today on motivation for Monday, I am writing to encourage on what I call, “The More You Do Anything”….

 

Be True to You (Motivation for Monday)

If is possible for someone to look at me and tell me the things I want to hear even when I know they are not telling the truth. It is possible for me to allow anyone to lie to me because I just want a feel good factor or a pick me up. It is also possible for me to know the truth and keep waving it away because I can’t be true to myself, just for not being true to myself. I like to put it this way, anyone can lie to you BUT If you lie to yourself, you are your own greatest enemy…..

Today on motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, “Be True to You”

 

FROM THE EYES OF A CHILD (Motivation for Monday)

I try very much to use practical approaches when I create this motivation blogs. I try to share my own story as much as I can, not to brag but to inspire you to be YOU and do you. I also share from other people’s experience if I won’t violate their privacy in any way…..

Today’s motivation is no different because I am going to be using a real life instance and I call this one from the eyes of a child.

 

YOUR SISTER’S KEEPER (Motivation for Monday)

Every Monday for the past 4 years, I have come up with contents that would motivate, inspire, empower and encourage you to be who you want to be irrespective of the circumstances you may be faced with or surrounded by or issues of life that may be giving you that limiting mindset to still go out there and do what you have to do to be who you truly want to be. I come out here and say, “YOU CAN DO IT”. I turned myself to your “Cheerleader of dreams” while working on being who I was called to be too.

However, in the past couple of weeks, I have been very worried because we have had instances of suicide yet again. Not that suicide is good for anyone but one that was truly shocking to us all was that of the owner of the fashion brand, Kate Spade. Ms Spade was said to have committed suicide at age 55. The question is, what could have caused this?

 

HANG ON, YOUR REWARD IS COMING (Motivation for Monday)

I know we all have those days when all we want to do is NOTHING, even though we have so much to do. Sometimes, this feeling goes on for a day or two. After a day or two, we still don’t feel like doing anything. Meanwhile, there is lots to do. I totally get it. I understand. This kind of feelings happen a lot of times when we have put in all we think we can BUT can’t seem to see any results, green light or breakthroughs……

 

Don’t Be Left Behind (This is NOT Rapture) | Motivation for Monday

I have been meeting weekly with 5 students (4 boys & a girl) doing leaving cert to encourage and support them on “working REALLY hard” at preparing for their forth coming leaving cert.  When I chat with these children, I use real live approaches to drive important messages home for them. When we met last Sunday, I told them that they should do everything possible so as for them not to be left behind. Today on motivation for Monday, I want to encourage you on what I call, “Don’t be left behind – This is Not Rapture”. It is an interesting one with real life takes on matters and changes happening…..

 

3 LIFE CHANGING LESSONS I LEARNT FROM MY DOCTOR OVER A PROCEDURE (Motivation for Monday)

I have now come to realise that some things you can learn, some things you can build on and growth is possible. And also, it is possible to become who we want to be without becoming who we are not……

Disclaimer: First, this is a TMI post (too much information) but as a Writer and Encourager, I still have to share the life lessons I learnt with you to help you be who you want to be. Today, I will be sharing with you the 3 lessons I learnt from getting my third Mirena. It is NOT for women only.

 

CREATIVITY KILLS FEAR (Motivation for Monday)

Some of you may remember when I changed the look of the blog. If you like, call it re-branding of the blog. You saw how excited I was when I did because I had outgrown what “we” had before. Little did I know that re-designing the blog was one thing and maintenance of it was another. As a creative (very creative actually), I love changes, I love to try out new things and if you like I love things to look a certain way, it is this creative mind of mine that makes me want to explore new things….

Today on the blog, I want to share how your creativity can kill your fear. Now let’s do this:

 

CHALLENGES MEAN GROWTH (Motivation for Monday)

In a recent research done by Forbes, a lot of people came out to say, the word “problem” scares them. I believe that was so because the word itself is described with synonyms like complications, trouble, difficult situations etc. That sounds scary right? However, in the same research, many say the word Challenge seem like one that could embrace because you can describe the word challenge with synonyms like summon, dare, etc.

Today, my first encouragement to you would be to see every difficult situation you may be going through as a challenge and not a problem. Personally, I see a challenge as an opportunity to dare to do something new and an opportunity to grow.

And guess what, many big organisations has now adopted the word challenge instead of problems.  Today on Motivation for Monday, I bring you, Challenge Means Growth….
