message from www.greatday.com's Daily Motivator:
“For a long time now, I have realised how valuable being positive and being motivated on a daily basis really is.
There are so many horrors and tragedies going on around the world today and life can become so busy and complicated. A positive outlook is the one thing that no-one can take away from you and I've also discovered that it really is the key to success and happiness.
After so many knee injuries, being "sacked" from my position as an Indoor player in Italy, broken relationships and other moments in my life that I struggled with and at times didn't think that I would be able to overcome or move on from…..I've learnt that the one thing we all often forget is that we are responsible for our own feelings. We have a choice as to how we will react or be affected by certain situations.
Now in saying this, it's not an easy thing to do when it seems that your whole world is crumbling down around you.
But, it still is up to us how we choose to react and feel about things.
This is where using positive and motivational messages come in to help lift those dark clouds. I've discovered that reading a simple daily message really helps me see the blue sky in every day.
And even if things are going great and I'm feeling good about myself and my life, the messages just keep me on track and confirm that life is awesome!
When I was training and preparing for the Sydney Olympics and living in Brisbane, away from my boyfriend, family and friends, I needed to wake up every day and feel good about being there. So I decided that I would cover my walls with lots of motivational messages that would inspire me to jump out of bed and remind me how great it was to be doing what I was doing.
That's how it started and then a few years later, I discovered this website that provided a Daily Motivational message via email.
I signed up (US$15 per year) and I've been receiving these messages every day (except Sundays) since then.
It never fails to amaze me that almost every message I receive has some impact on what's happening in my life at that very moment!
More and more business are offering these messages in a daily form and I think they're all fantastic.
I've decided to recommend the site mentioned above, exclusively, because it has had such a dramatic influence over my life in the past 2 years. Each message also comes with a link to the website where you can read the message with pictures and music.
The link on my page above, changes daily and is only a snippet of the Daily Motivator. They really are lovely. You don't even have to join up, you can just go there anytime and read the messages.”
"And remember, "It's not what happens to you that's important, it's how you deal with it that really matters."
