I've always loved Journey. Come on what child of the 80's doesn't have a little soft spot for them? I even went to see them live in concert (granted there were few if any original members by then) and it was a sea of sun-in permed hair, acid washed jeans and girls screaming every word at the top of their lungs. I didn't have the acid washed jeans or the blond permed hair but trust me I was just as loud singing along as the lady next to me. As silly as it might sound... Don't Stop Believing is one of my favorite songs... it's actually my go to karaoke song. It's a little cliché I'm aware but I not only love the song itself but the lyrics actually keep me motivated on pretty much a daily basis.
Believing in yourself is no easy task. Starting a business in a recession when you have bills, a mortgage, taxes and life to pay for seems a bit insane. Putting every dollar that comes in my door back into my business for three years has made this business grow but that doesn't mean that I don't have my doubts. Sometime those doubts and fears are so loud I just have to blast some Journey to drown them out... or put a post it note on my computer so that all day long I'm reminded to believe in myself and my goals.
I believe that I can do great things in this life and I plan to push myself towards those goals every day. And a little reminder from Journey can go a long way in this office.
So what's a good inspirational blog post about believing without a give away?? I'm giving away one a copy of one of my favorite motivational books (Creating a Life Worth Living by Carol Lloyd). To enter this little give away tell me: What's your go to pick-me-up song? When things are heavy on your mind what do you blast on your stereo to get your motivation and mood going in the right direction?
