"Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner

"This week at Princeton Day our theme was "motivation", or shall I say  "whats YOUR motivation"?. Each day I shared with our scholars motivational thoughts and quotes, our scholars were asked the question, "what's your motivation"? Their answers ranged from their future , family, self and helping others, some shared that their past is a strong motivator.  I too, begin to think  "what's my motivation"?, what drives me to do and make the choices I make each day  While many things, people, and sayings come to mind, some are personal and some not so much, but what drives me everyday is God's word. God's promises are true and real. His words give me life, strength, and a peace the surpasses all human understanding. I am inspired and driven to live the life that God planned for me to live!  Encourging others, setting goals and reaching them are motivators in my life as well, and even when I fall short as I do,  I am still motivated to try again!

What is the worst that could happen if we motivate ourselves, that we gain wisdom, that we become excited and inspired, or that we actually grow an become the man and or women God intended us to be.  Self-motivation is motivator, sometimes we must be our own cheerleader. How can one motivate others if you can not inspire or motivate yourself!

As the week comes to an end, my pray is that something was gain,  that you had an "aha moment, but above all I pray that you are motivated! I would like to leave you with one of my favorite quotes.....

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

PDA scholars and family! BE MOTIVATED!
