Motivating Monday Mantras

I love Mondays. Don’t get me wrong, I love my weekends too! For many, Monday is a day that kicks their butts. I don’t see it that way. I see Monday as the first day of the week to start kicking butt and then make the week the way I want it to be.

It takes most people until Wednesday to get into their weekly rhythms… My Tuesdays usually feel like Wednesdays because I tend to cram so much into my Monday. I make Mondays work for me, not vice versa.

It-is-Monday-and-yourMonday is going to happen… every week… and there is no getting around it. You have had Mondays all of your life, and as long as you are going to be here, you are going to have a lot more Mondays do deal with. So you have a choice… you can be the low-energy victim and every week have Monday happen to you… or you can use Monday to be your launching pad – meet the day and the week head on and come out on top.

If Monday is happening to you today and you want to power-up, here are some amazing quotes to help get you on your way…
