    Hey everyone,
    I want to have a thread specifically on motivation. I believe there is brilliance in many people, and many on this forum, but a lack of motivation or even fear may stop us from achieving what we want and taking the next step. I want to challenge you to post at least one video, one picture or one quote every week on here that is motivational. If you don't want to take part so be it. If you want to be negative, stay out of the thread. I want all the brilliant minds to motivate each other. This is not only for you, but for me too. I own my own business and have struggled with motivation for a while. I have had a dream of making two other businesses i've been wanting to do for such a long time work but have always fearful. I have had the ideas, but motivation and fear has stalled me. Until today. I draw a line in the sand. I make my ideas work. I want this to be a page of motivation and accountability. I want this page to motivate people to take that next step they have been too scared to. I want this thread to allow others to help each other and be that right environment everybody needs.

    I'm gonna kick it off with this video:



    And this thought I had today about focusing so much on one business rather than the ideas I had that could be used worldwide.

    "Stop fishing in the pond. There's a sea out there".

    My bait (ideas) only need to catch one shark.

    Looking forward to reading and watching great things. You can post activities, videos, pictures and quotes.

    Thanks,
    EJ.

    I love all the motivational material, follow a fair few pages on Instagram also.

    But it's no good getting your motivational kick or top-me-up unless you ACT on things.

    Some saying out there like: the smallest gesture is better than the greatest of intentions...

    Yep. I agree.
    Don't mind people posting stories or situations or where they're at at the moment and what they need motivation for. It will keep em accountable. We can check back on their progress
