The Mountains are one of nature’s finest gifts. They provide us with freshwater, enable us to hike, to absorb breath-taking views. But above all, they remind us of how beautiful our planet truly is. So, on this Monday morning, let’s start the day right with some mountain-inspired quotes.
Visualise your Goals
“When everything feels like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top.” – W. Michael Scott
Everyone struggles with a case of the Monday Blues every once in a while, right? We’re in need of some Monday motivation. Luckily, looking at the mountains helps put things into perspective. Today is Monday, we’re at the bottom ready for the week ahead. Find motivation by visualising the moment in which you reach your goals. Whether that be your dream career or a fitness challenge, each goal counts. In fact, scientific studies have shown that visualization has a positive impact on goal achievement. There are no views without the climb much like there is no Friday without Monday. Everything worthwhile presents challenges and that’s part of the fun. We have to put the work in to reap the rewards. So grab that cup of coffee and give it your all.
It’s OK to Have a Bad Day…
“What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it’s curved, like a road through mountains.” – Tennesse Williams
OK, so for anyone struggling with Monday motivation, this quote is for you. It brings complete peace of mind knowing that life is not all sunshine and rainbows. As Tennesse famously said, life is as tumultuous as the mountains that give depth to the Earth. It’s reassuring to know that we also form part of that tortuousness. So, if you are having a bad day or something didn’t go as planned, remember it’s completely normal and only temporary, of course.
Your Only Competition is Yourself
“Climb the mountain so that you can see the world… not so that the world can see you.” – David McCullough Jr.
In a world which revolves around social media, sometimes we post things or even do things based on what we think others will think of us. It has become second nature to post the best of ourselves, only showing our best life. But you can only compare yourself to who you were yesterday. You are your only competition. Work hard and persevere for what you want.
