Who Is Going To Save You If You Don't Save Yourself? 

Here's a clue: no one. For me, the fact that the only person who is going to save me from myself is me is often a hard pill to swallow. I have so many crutches to lean on that act as excuses for me to not reach my full potential, gain the things I want from life, remain forever in my not-so-great comfort zone. Oh I'm too depressed to clean my house today. Oh I'm too anxious to look for a new job with better money in a new town that is more affordable to live in. I feel too ill to do my to do list today.

And I go on, and on, and on.
While sometimes, yes, my mental health does act as a barrier between me and thing things I want, as does my myterious and unnatural extreme tiredness, I will now be the first to admit that I use these as an excuse.

Although there are a growing number of things in my life I wish to change right now, the truth is it's a lot easier to stay exactly where I am. Sure, it might be making me miserable remaining in my "comfort zone" but the point is, when I don't make an effort to change things, I know exactly what to expect. 

If I decide to pull myself together, start making an effort to change things, my life becomes unpredictable, and that's scary.

The thing that prompted me to start Operation Supervixen was that my fear of things staying exactly the same as they are now scared me a hell of a lot more than trying to change things for the better.

A lot of people think Motivational Quotes and the like should be all frilly and postive and happy, but today's Monday Motivation is going to motivation by fear because sometimes, fear is the only thing that gets us off our bums.

In my Arbonne business, I often ask people questions such as "If you keep doing exactly what you are doing now, what will your life look like in five years time?" or "If you lost your job today, how long could you get by on your savings? Do you even have any savings?"

Today, I'm asking myself the same questions and I am not liking my answers. Do you like yours?

I'm guessing a lot of you, just like me, are quite scared by those questions. So what are you going to do about it? I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it really is going to have to be you who does something about it.

No one is going to come along and change your life for you, it has to come from within and until you start making changes internally, you won't see any externally.
