🗓️ January 2
Created by the United States House of Representatives on December 18th, 2001
Attention all procrastinators, slackers and dreamers!
Right in the beginning of the most depressing month of the year, we’ve decided to dedicate one day to feeling motivated and inspired. Because what better way to cure the post-holiday blues than to remind ourselves that we have already started putting off our New Year’s resolutions and there’s still so much more to do?
But don’t worry…yet. There are plenty of ways to spread motivation and inspiration on this special day. For starters, you can start your day by setting impossible goals for yourself like running a marathon in a week or learning a new language in a day.
And why stop there? Why not make a list of all the things you’ve been procrastinating on and tackle them all at once? Nothing like a little self-induced stress to get the motivational juices flowing.
If all else fails, just post some standard motivational quotes on social media because everybody sees your words and not your actions…or lack of actions.
Or spread ‘inspiration’ to others by sharing your own failures and inadequacies with your friends and family, nothing like a good dose of humility to inspire others to do better.
So, don’t let the January blues get you down, embrace Motivation and Inspiration Day and all it has to offer. But let’s be real, one day is not enough, let’s make every day a motivation and inspiration day. Because who needs sleep and self-care, when you can have a constant pressure to do more and be more?
In short, let’s all get motivated and inspired, because the world needs us to be our best selves, just like last year and the year before. But this time we try it for real…right?
Take a deep breath, sip some coffee, and let’s conquer this day together!
Trash the “there’s no try, only do”. Be a success in trying!
