Motivational Monday

Every so often I'll do a post on motivation. For someone that's trying to express more of her creative side and trying to get it to make a living for herself motivation is all she gots. So my first one came from a book a friend lent me. She bought it from Starbucks. It's called "Where will you be 5 years from today?" by Dan Zadra.

I'm seriously thinking about going to buy this book. It's the common question we get asked at job interviews. I don't remember half the time what my answers were in past interviews but when I started job interviewing….oh so funny. I remember saying "To pay my debts, finish school, have a house, get married, and have a high successful career here at *blank*". Of course now my response pertains more to career goals vs. personal goals. LOL. Oh to be a youth...

Back to the motivation quote from the book "Where will you be 5 years from today?" by Dan Zadra. Page number I’m not sure but it’s on the page where it ask at the top: "What will you do with your talents?"

"Talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back. The things you are naturally good at are your gifts. If singing or dancing or math or music or leadership come easily to you, that's a gift. One of the marks of a gift is to have the courage to fulfill it. If it's easy for you to be a good dancer, or singer, or athlete, why not become a great one?"

There you go. Have a great day everyone.
