Monday’s Go-Getters


Welcome to the Go-Getters squad……

Yeah, I’m back… Back with extra sass and swag…two of my favorite things in the whole wide world!

Let’s dive into our maneuver’s for tomorrow shall we?

First and foremost, there’s no competition out there, it’s just YOU. You’re the competition so don’t battle yourself in your mind. Cast away that negativity and proceed with the positivity.

None of that whiningย  bullshit about it being Monday. Monday’s are fresh starts remember? We don’t fear Monday’s. Not here on this blog we don’t. We’re powerful and we’re contributors. We are a valuable piece of the team.

Whether you’re a stay at home Mom, janitor, sales professional, teacher, cashier, lawyer, contractor, engineer, bus driver, you are part of something. You are important to people. Others count on you each day. Maybe one of your co-workers is out sick tomorrow, that means you have to step it up. Be there to pick up the slack to make things happen. Be accommodating to assure things go smoothly. Wouldn’t you want someone to do the same for you?

Take pride in your position. No matter what the position is, even if it’s just being a friend to someone, listening, show your compassion to others. Be the rock for them to lean on.

Be thankful for your job. Be confident in knowing that you have what it takes. Let’s show some enthusiasm for our jobs and for our beautiful lives. We have purpose and we’ll rise by lifting others. Be that person that is happy and content.

Because….Seriously, look around you, don’t you have enough? Think about every single thing you have and know that there are others out there that don’t have what we have. We are fortunate and blessed. Whether you’re scraping by and trying to manage and keep your head above water, you’re alive, breathing, reading this and have plenty to be thankful for. Always be grateful. Someone else would love to have your life.

So, get up, show up and love your bad ass self tomorrow. Your happiness shows, I guarantee. Maybe some of it will spread throughout the office with a domino effect.

Monday’s motivational music is brought to you by “The Godfather Of Soul” – James Brown – The man was a fucking genius!

Now, Get Up Offa That Thing…..

    I’m going to be spending most of the day sitting on trains, but I’ll do my best ๐Ÿ™‚ (travelling means I get to read a book though, so that’s good, right?)

    I don’t mind Mondays. It’s Tuesdays that suck hard for me.
