Cup of Motivation

Today is a very special day. Today marks the oldest we have even been and the youngest we will ever be again. Today may seem like just another day, but for many, it will be their last day. They would give anything for more time and another day. The moment we get ill or we learn that our time is limited, we look at time very differently. We can’t allow ourselves to wait until time is running out before we realize how precious it is. Time is the most precious commodity in the universe. Let’s ask ourselves this question, if time truly is that valuable, why do we waste so much of it worrying about things that don’t matter or on things we can’t change? Let’s choose to make the most of our time filling our lives with amazing memories and surrounding ourselves with people we truly care about. Don’t waste time on trivial things. Let’s find the goodness and quality in life. Why do we need to limit life’s amazing experiences to a bucket? Let’s live life so we could fill an ocean with our amazing memories. Buckets are for places and things. The ocean is for family, friends and the things that truly matter…making lasting memories. With that said, let’s get rid of the negative in our lives. Let’s find a way to focus on the positive in our lives today and every day. Let’s surround ourselves with people that build us up. This week, remember to be positive, be a friend, love life and live in the moment. Make the most out of today. Focus on quality and have a phenomenal week!!


This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you left behind…let it be something good.

As you get older you find out that true happiness is not in how much you make or how many degrees you have or how big your house is or how fancy your car is. It’s finding peace and joy and a calmness in your life that will soon become the most important thing to you. Your family are what matters to you, love is what matters to you. Things that are of quality, not of quantity.

Your thoughts affect your emotions. Your emotions affect your decisions. Your decisions affect your life.

A meaningful life is not being rich, being popular, being highly educated or being perfect. It is about being real, being humble, being able to share ourselves and touch the lives of others. It is only then that we could have a FULL, HAPPY and CONTENTED LIFE.

Today will never come again. Be a blessing. Be a friend. Encourage someone. Take time to care. Let your words heal and not wound.

Be willing to change your behavior. If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you are getting.
Jim Rohn

Keep the smile, lose the tension, feel the joy, forget the worry, hold the peace, leave the pain, and always be happy.

The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.

Always do the right thing. Always be exciting. Always be encouraging and always be learning something new.
Zig Ziglar

This week, let’s focus on quality!
