A couple of months ago I ran the New York City Marathon and spoke at the Marathon Expo. Before doing those though, I recorded this quick video on taking charge of your day. Since my last couple video blog episodes have been focusing on journaling, I thought this would be a good time to post this one.
In this video I talk about “what is your why?” or what is the reason or thing that motivates successful people? These can be a future aspiration, or a physical reminder that gets you going. For me, when I didn’t graduate from high school I kept the empty diploma case, and it was constant reminder to me of the need to strive hard and push through adversity.
In my book Three Points of Contact I refer to these things as “Bulletin Board Material” and that means you can put these things in place you’ll see them everyday and say “that’s what I’m working towards”. It doesn’t need to literally be on a bulletin board, it can be in a journal, but the point is you see it and it motivates you to keep going, especially when things get tough.
Check out the video below for more tips on making this happen. Got a “why” that keeps you going? lets hear about it!
