IMG_7432.JPG

Most people believe that big action requires big motivation, but in reality, most motivation is gained through action. In the simplest scenario, I’m not motivated to fold my laundry but once I get started and fold that first T-shirt…I’m on a roll and love the dwindling pile of clothes which helps keep me working on the task at hand!

Don’t wait around to get motivated, do something first then the motivation will build!
