For Women: Finding Motivation – How to Stop Being Complacent
Are you smug and contented with your life? Just doing routine work? But there’s more to life than this. What is it? Read on to find out.
Doing routine work can be dropping your kids to school, going to work, picking up your kids from school, going for grocery shopping, returning home, cooking and serving your family, doing the dishes and retiring to bed. All this is mundane. You deserve a life better than this. So, stop being complacent. Below I give a few tips on how you can find motivation amidst your regular life. Here they are:
1. Cut a clean and good joke, which you have recently heard, with your family at the dinner table and make everyone in your family share a good round of laughter.
2. After the kids fall asleep, hold a fun conversation with your hubby. Of course, you will talk about problems. After their solutions are sought through discussion, hold a light, jolly conversation with your spouse and feel really good and merry.
3. Before you go to sleep, read that novel you have bought sometime ago. Read a few pages and hold your interest until you start yawning. Then retire to bed.
4. Wake up early in the morning to make good breakfast. Make something nutritious your kids and hubby enjoy eating. Then you all can leave home, feeling jubilant to start the day.
5. In the weekend there is more time to motivate yourself. Engage your entire family in cleaning and tidying the home. Give them new mops, vacuum cleaners, sponge, fresh soap, vixol cleaners etc. to uplift their interest in cleaning. Once you have done it unitedly, at the end, there will be an immaculate and cozy home.
After everyone has showered, ask them to put on good outfits for going outside. Take your family for a ride to a good restaurant about which you have heard from friends. Taste the food there and relish.
Come back home. Go for a nap if you like.
In the evening sit down in the living room with your family to watch a comedy or a funny cartoon and enjoy a good guffaw together. The next day of the weekend you may spend some “Me Time” for yourself. You can go to the parlor for pedicure, manicure, facial masking and a good haircut.
With the new look, go to work again and see how your colleagues react. Most probably they will compliment you, and you will be inspired. You start your week right.
Summing up, you do not have to be complacent with your life. You tweak around, following the tips in this article, and find the mojo of life after you have stimulated yourself. Gotcha?

Don’t Settle For What Life Gives You
Don’t Settle For What Life Gives You
By Rosemarie Sumalinog Gonzales | Published On October 2, 2021
People settle for mediocrity in many aspects of their lives on a daily basis. We accept jobs we hate, we deal with friends who let us down, and family members who give us so much stress.
Don’t settle for what life gives you. Make your life better because life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced. Few realized that many of life’s failures are due to people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
People are terrified of change, failure and taking risks. These are some of the main reasons why people settle in life. It’s not about unrealistic goals or perfection. It is about changing the things you can to be happy, not simply drifting along in life and complaining. It is far easier to settle than it is to leave our comfort zone.
Do remember, you only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. Don’t waste your life living up someone else’s expectations. Don’t be trapped by dogma. Living with the results of other people’s thinking does will not do you any good.
Almost everybody wants to succeed in life, but nobody wants to do the dirty works of getting on the top. You grind hard so you can play hard. At the end of the day, you put all the work in, and eventually it will pay off. You just need to work and strive hard to attain that goal.
Life imposes things on you that you can’t control, but you still have the choice of how you’re going to live through this. Life is never easy. There is always work to be done and obligations to be met. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. When you love what you do, then, you are happy and contented. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle for less.
Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you only spend it once. You have brains in your head. So, you can steer yourself any direction you choose. Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage. In fact, too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.
Many people suffer with tremendous amounts of self-doubt and are unable to believe they are good enough. There are always better options out there, but too many people have low self-esteem, which prevents them from realizing this. It’s better to be alone than it is to want to be alone.
Although something may not be what we really want, but it becomes a habit and it’s more comfortable to maintain the status quo than to get out of our comfort zones. You need to fight through all the obstacles that lie between where you are and where you want to be.
Many times, people get so frustrated with life. People will constantly complain about their present situations, but will do nothing about it without realizing that the minute they settle for less than they deserve, they get even less than they settled for.
