Where do you get your motivation from? Is it your family, an inspiring YouTube video, or perhaps an encouraging “note?” There is something or someone that gives us the exact drive and ambition we need, to not only get us through the day, but get us to our goals. Although my students are some of my biggest motivators, I’m often motivated by doubt. Yes, disbelief act as a catalyst for my success. There’s nothing like negative chatter that gets me moving again. To some people that may sound a bit odd, but nothing excites me more, than saying, “I did it,” when they told me I couldn’t. I’m not easily offended by negativity anymore, because I’m too busy using it for fuel. Rather than allow doubt to distract me, instead I let it drive me! Besides, I much more than mere “words,” so the more they say no, the louder I say, watch me! It’s important to be aware of your capabilities, and not allow anyone to limit them. It doesn’t matter what the naysayers say or do, no one has to believe in you, except YOU!
Until next time my NOTE takers!
