  • Personally when I find myself in a situation that i don't feel at all motivated to do i remind myself why i am doing it. I also do this with my husband who is working and going to school too. When he doesn't feel motivated i just remind him why he is doing it and he is always motivated to do it. The power of positive thought :)

  • I try to just look at what your trying to accomplish- and less on what you have to do to get there. Kinda like the, "keep your eye on the ball" saying.

    GOOD LUCK =)

  • Make yourself some motivational pictures that you can carry around with you! Put them on your walls and in your purse. :) Put your babies picture in it ro remind you of who you are doing this for. :)
