Self motivation and the motivation of online friends
SP uses a zig ziglar quote about motivation being like bathing...it works, but you still have to do it daily.
This quote has stuck with me this time: every day, I give myself a new reason to stay on track. Some days I am focused on that day, others my next weigh in, still others I think long term. I'm a believer now that motivation needs to be refreshed daily to keep actions in check! Try it out!306
It is so much easier to follow through on what you want to do when you have someone who will check up on you and that you can check up on to see how you are doing. It is so nice to have someone who will cheer you on and give you the motivation you need to continue.
