31 Days - You Never Know Where Help Will Be Found - January 13

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Today, Spark advises:

Take advantage of technology. Sign up for motivational emails or text messages, set reminders on your computer, or have a friend call and check in on you. These little things will keep you focused no matter where you are.

Isn't that what Spark is? A technologically delivered support system? There is certainly no paucity of daily motivational sources out there, and many are willing to let you sign up to reach you daily. Really, you never know whose words, or what words, are going to light a fire under you and make you sit up and take notice. So I say, do whatever works for you.

However, I'm also going to go the other way with this and encourage doing your own talking, because just as we never know where our next motivational tool will come from, likewise, we never know what words we speak may help to motivate someone else. And can there be any greater feeling than knowing that we have somehow helped someone on this journey?

The energy generated from the conversations we are having between and amongst ourselves can never be underestimated. It is the essence of Sparkpeople, I believe.. So read a lot and write a lot. You will be helped, and you will help someone else.. hard to figure which feels better!

Have a Sparky rest of the day!!
