Deb's Sparks!
Welcome to the second half of August! The Summer is moving quickly towards Fall and I love the Fall!  But I also love Summer and all of the fun that it brings.  I finally made it to the beach.  I want to enjoy every minute of Summer and recharge my battery.  My motivation is low for sitting and writing as I would rather be outside enjoying Summer.  As the saying goes "Physician, heal thyself"; this month's newsletter is about motivation.  Enjoy!
Peace, Love and Sparks!  Deb
Igniting the Next Generation of YOU!
Motivation is key to Igniting the Next Generation of You and achieving your goals.  
Merriam-Webster defines motivation: 
  • the act or process of giving someone a reason for doing something : the act or process of motivating someone
  • the condition of being eager to act or work : the condition of being motivated
  • a force or influence that causes someone to do something
I like to keep things simple by saying "Keep your eye on the prize!"  I find that if I can imagine the end result of my goal, then I will be motivated to continue to work towards and achieve it. 
I also break goals down into small, achieveable steps.  As Lao-tzu said "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step".
This applies to any goal you would like to achieve.  Read on...
Tools You can Use!  Visions and Steps!

Let's talk about visions and steps.  We discussed the use of vision boards in the March 2014 Newsletter.  A vision board is a visual representation of your goals and dreams.  If you haven't created one, you might want to try it.  It helps you keep your eye on the prize. 
I challenge you to look at your vision board every day (or imagine your goals) and think of one small step that will move you closer to your goal or dream.  One.  Small.  Step.  Not the entire plan.  Not in the perfect order.  Just one small step.
I am planning a trip to Scotland, a vacation on my bucket list.  I have pictures of Scotland everywhere I look.  Planning a trip can be overwhelming.  Where does one start?  I have my airfare and I have a place to stay but other than that, its a blank slate.  
So, I started with making a hotel reservation for the second night of a side trip I have planned in the middle of my vacation.  Talk about out of order.  But, making that one reservation, taking that one small step provided the motivation to continue to frame the rest of the side trip.
I firmly believe your path rises to meet you but you need to take action.  Take small steps and evaluate your progress.  In the evaluation, you will listen to your intuition.  How did that step feel?  Were you excited?  Happy?  Motivated? If yes, then that was a step in the direction of your goal.  If not, spend some time brainstorming a different approach. 
Keep your eye on the prize and take one small step towards it.
