Positive Energy to Start the Week

Sunday is a good day to look ahead to a week of intention.  Start strong with some words of motivation.


  • simple steps to bring change
  • inspiration to use your strengths to make a difference
  • the power of music to change your energy.

Here’s to a week of motivation and productivity.

If you want to change the world…

 … you do it by starting with simple routines, getting help from others, and judging people by the size of their hearts.  Learn more important life lessons in this inspiring commencement address.

“Life is a struggle and the potential for failure is ever present, but those who live in fear of failure, or hardship, or embarrassment will never achieve their potential. Without pushing your limits, without occasionally sliding down the rope headfirst, without daring greatly, you will never know what is truly possible in your life.” ― William H. McRaven

Make a Difference

Do you think you can’t have an impact?  This talk shows that there is a way for everyone to make a stand, make a change – in a way that works for you.  And it might give you the confidence to step out and try new approaches you never thought would work for you.

For the introverts among us, traditional forms activism like marches, protests and door-to-door canvassing can be intimidating and stressful. Take it from Sarah Corbett, a former professional campaigner and self-proclaimed introvert. She introduces us to “craftivism,” a quieter form of activism that uses handicrafts as a way to get people to slow down and think deeply about the issues they’re facing, all while engaging the public more gently. Who says an embroidered handkerchief can’t change the world?

Music to motivate

The right song can make you want to dance, take action or be better.  Music can bring people together or push them apart.  It can help you to see beauty or truth, or put into words things that you cannot.  

Music can have different effects on everyone who hears it so chose what works for you then play it when you need that result.  Be unapologetic about your choice and claim the power.

Here is one suggestion for a motivational song choice.
