Topping Up What’s Top.

What have you done today to ensure you stay motivated? How about this week? This month?

Probably not much. Maybe, not anything at all.

To be successful, you have to find time to do the things that inspire you.

You can’t make creativity and motivation the last thing on your list of things to do.

Make time for it.

Even if it means you need to get up earlier each day to find that time.

There’s no good time to read a book. There’s no good time to journal your thoughts. There’s no good time to go to the gym.

There’s always something you could be doing that seems more productive. A better use of your time.

Just don’t forget to invest in your long-term success.

Anyone can go through the motions.

Anyone can work hard each day.

Real champions don’t just work hard physically. They work hard emotionally.

That demands you stay on top of your motivation.

Inspired work comes from inspired people.

If you want more for yourself and better results from the work that you do, spend time seeking inspiration desperately.
