Happy Monday!

This is a post that changes every Monday. The original post was 16th July 2018:

I have had such a great Monday today – I believe it is because I decided it was going to be a great day, and so it was.

Affirmations play a big part of my morning routine. Recently I have adopted rather than one affirmation per day to focus on a core affirmation for the week. Therefore setting up a weekly intention. Here are the results:

20th August 2018 Today’s Monday Motivation Quote is:

“If you help enough people to get what they want, you will get what you want” by Jim Rohn

 

22nd August please note: for the record, this quote is a version of a Zig Ziglar original quote of  ‘You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want’

And Jim Rohn gave a version here: https://m.facebook.com/OfficialJimRohn/posts/10154910734390635

I am liking this version: ‘If you help enough people to get what they want, you will get what you want’ because it puts others first rather than you’re own motivations and that feels better to me right now 🙂

  1. Monday mornings in the past were always a battle to get up and go to the usual 9-5 toil, but you just had to get use to it as there will be many Mondays like them.

  2. Hey Fleur, I wholeheartedly believe that your mind has the power to transform your life – if you believe in yourself, you will achieve great things! Thanks for today’s affirmation!

  3. Hi Fleur
    Thanks for this. Short and sweet but just what the doctor ordered.
    Hope you have a wonderful day.
    I’ll be back to see the next instalment. 🙂

  4. Hello Fleur,
    I think we all need “Motivational Monday’s”! Mine actually starts on Sunday nights at 11:00 PM and usually it’s not good. I operate and mechanic fiber optic machines for a living on 3rd shift and they don’t like it when we shut them down for the weekend.
    But good to know…. “I am enough” to get the job done and done right!
    Thanks for the encouragement! I love your site!
    Best of luck,
    Devara

    1. Thanks so much Devara – You certainly are enough. Say that affirmation to yourself 3 times while looking into your own eyes in the mirror. How do you feel? It can different on different days

  5. Hi there I have actually learned to view Mondays as a positive day and not get so down on it. I think when you are doing work you are passionate about then you will view Mondays in a positive light maybe even look forward to it. This is an important affirmation. “I am flexible and full of energy” this has great meaning to me because it leaves me open to the universe and whatever it may bring. What I can not control, can not control me!

    1. I absolutely agree Dwyan. I remember decades ago in my 20s hating Mondays but now I learn to embrace them with ‘flexibility and full of energy’ it just makes it easier. Delighted it has resonated with you too.

  6. If you set your mind to it and you’re serious about what you want, you can get it! Mind over matter, they say…and they are right. I think our mind is more powerful than we can even understand, at times. And I believe that to be a beautiful thing, because that means there is so much more there is to learn about ourselves.

  7. Hi Fleur,

    I used only one statement and it was always the same: “I like myself”. I learned with Bryan Tracy. I’m a fan of affirmations and will use them more often, especially “I am enough”. It is very powerful especially when we are afraid or doubtful about ourselves.

    Thank you.

    1. Agreed Rui we are likeminded I am making note of these. I normally use from Louise Hay – I love and approve of myself but it is nice to have several options on a similar theme. I think I’ll share these Bryan Tracy ones for a Monday Motivation sometimes too – thanks for sharing!

  8. Hey there. I am so happy I came across your post. It is quite easy to get distracted and demotivated when life gets in the way sometimes, but your post has just brought me back to life.

  9. Hey Fleur 🙂 So many people can relate to Mondays. I know I used to before I retired. I used to get the Monday blues on Sunday nights. It’s all about attitude and I believe that if we change our attitudes to positive thoughts we could change all the Monday blues stuff, right? Monday can be like any other day. It doesn’t have to be the “bad guy!”
    Thanks!

    1. I agree Rob, yes in my twenties when I worked in banking I got the Monday blues in a big way, however, these days I normally enjoy the beginning of the week because I now spend my Sundays at home getting ready for the week – cooking and preparing meals etc – I enjoy a low carb lifestyle and the working week is just easier if I do a small amount of preparation on Sundays – so have completely turned around my attitude to Mondays – also these Monday Motivations help in a big way!

  10. Don’t sweat the small stuff!
    Yes, this is the one that I need every day. With 3 kids there is so much of this small stuff, as toys everywhere, dirty dishes on the table, being late to a school, lost gloves etc etc.
    I get mad at everything !! I need to slow down and see it in the right light..
    Need to try it as motivation setting.
    Thank you.
    Mary

    1. Oh my goodness yes Don’t Sweat the Small stuff is so good, I have one son so I don’t know how you do it re 3! I hear you about getting mad at everything. Particularly on weekends, I try to slow down as much as possible. For example, where we can we catch the train to get to places that I know will be stressful in finding a carpark that way I’m relaxed and don’t have to deal with the additional stress of where to park but I would imagine that could be even more stressful with 3 in tow rather than only 1

  11. Hi Fleur, I just tried your affirmations and I feel wonderful now. Affirmations are a wonderful tool to stay on track. Thank you very much for sharing!

    1. I’m delighted to hear it has changed how you feel. This raises your vibration and helps you to attract all that you want to achieve with ease and inflow – have a great day!

  12. This is awesome Fleur! I love positive affirmations and the one for this week is interesting. Especially for me right now starting a website also falling in the personal development category. It’s good to keep in mind! I am here to serve FIRST.

    I want to try this! I love new concepts and ideas for life improvement. I will say this affirmation everyday and see.

    Thank you for sharing!

    1. Fantastic Stefani I’m delighted it has benefited you and yes come back and share your experience after saying affirmations daily. I used to have a new affirmation each day but since beginning this post back in July I am enjoying focusing on the main affirmation for the week. This one is relevant to me because I’m returning to regular blog posts after a month off learning more about keyword research and creating content via video

  13. I used to hate Monday’s even though I had a great job at the time. Since kissing goodbye to that part of my life, nowadays I don’t even think of Monday as the start of my week, to me they are all the same which is great, no pressure and all that and since I tend to work whenever and normally 7 days (not the 8-hour grind). Positive thinking and believing and if it takes standing in front of the mirror then so be it. Very inspirational and maybe I should look into this more. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Yes I should credit the saying affirmations in front of the mirror as a Louis Hay strategy – it is very powerful and takes you to the next level although on some days it can be confronting depending on how you’re feeling. Yes I too no longer dread Mondays and use them as a launch pad to the working week – although a portion of what I do is not tied to the working week I enjoy the routine of more downtime on the weekend with family and friends

  14. I just love the Jimmy Dean quote above. I’d never heard that one before today. I saw one of your other readers mention Brian Tracy above. I’ve read several of his books and done the “I LIKE MYSELF” affirmation. It really does warm your spirit. I’m going to practice yours in the morning before work but do them in front of the mirror as you suggested. I’ll be back to report later!:)

    1. Excellent Jennifer it makes a difference to do them in front of the mirror, I got that strategy from Louis Hay. Yes do report back would love to hear about your experience

  15. Hi Fleur

    We all need Monday motivation, and the quote “I am Enough” are three very powerful words, those three words cannot only get you motivated but make a big difference in a lot of peoples live.

    Thanks
