Tell Me Something Good #42

Image result for monday motivation

Yes you truly are amazing and you can handle anything! So pull up those sleeves and tackle it!

Let’s put some effort into creating a good week and kick start it with a positive thought on your Monday morning. Let’s do it! Let’s kick off the week on a positive note!

It’s easy:

  • Mention something that you consider being good in the comments
  • Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below). Something good that happened to you recently, or something good you will experience in a little while, or something good you know will happen soon. Something that makes you feel good.
  • Share this post and invite your followers as well.

Before I share my good thing with you lets celebrate something. Celebrate the good thing. Celebrate the fact that you can always find a way to do it. No matter what people think and say, it will always be in your hands. You can turn things around, you can step up, you can surprise, you can do it!

Today I have the following message for you:

“There are always haters out there. Haters and doubters. People who will tell you that you won’t succeed anymore or maybe even never. But it’s not about them. It’s not about what they think or say. It’s about what you know, what you believe in and about what you put into it. I mentioned before that I believe tennis is actually teaching you a lot about life and the last weekend did it again, at least for me. Serena Williams won again. This time against her sister who only a few thought would make it into the final of a Grand Slam again. But she did. She did because she believed in her chances.

It was similar with the men’s final. We saw Roger Federer return after a 6months break. This is a very long time without playing any matches! Nobody thought he would make it to the final. Nobody thought he would win the first Slam of the year. Many actually thought he will never win a Grand Slam again. But he did it. Against one of the toughest opponents out there. He won because he believed in being able to win. He won because he did not give up.

I’m no Roger Federer or Serena or Venus Williams. But they all taught me that no matter what anyone else thinks or tells you: As long as you believe in yourself you can do it. You are in control. Once again I take this little life lesson and store it in my little corner in the brain, ready to fall back to it when I need the motivation in my day to day life. :-)”

  1. That is such an inspiring, touching message message. Did you write it?

    We all have a choice. A choice whether to try or to give up and go the other way. When you try, there is hope and anything is possible. I was up watching the Roger Federer-Nadal match last night, and it was so inspiring. Somehow I knew at the start he would win, and he did 😀

  4. I’m publishing a post later today with a bunch of good things that happened to me but it isn’t titled “Tell Me Something Good #42.” Is that alright?

  6. There was a TV commercial shown here when I was a child. It was for Clairol Loving Care No-Peroxide Haircolor and included the taglines “Washes away only the gray!” and “You’re not getting older – you’re getting better.” The latter thought clearly applies to Roger F and the Williams sisters! These thoughts are also kind of how I live my life now, getting a professional color regularly at the age of 61. My hope beyond this, though, is that my gray will continue to come in beautifully, so I can spend the money for the dye on other things that make me better internally.
