Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going." Jim Rohn Good morning! How important it is to recognize that both motivation and habit are needed as we seek to change and improve our lives. Motivation is the spark that often gets us moving. But within that initial motivation, we must work hard to develop positive and effective habits to keep us moving. Success is made from motivation and habits, not one or the other. In order to sustain a high-level of motivation while giving us time to create new habits, we must stay positive and solution oriented. It is also helpful to communicate with others who are making changes in their lives and use their excitement as a springboard for our own. Your turn: Does your plan for change contain equal parts motivation and excitement? If not, brainstorm ways to create more of whichever quality is needed. Your affirmation: I seek out the positive in people and in life's situations.
