BG’s Positively Speaking

Staying Motivated

Everyone faces the challenge of staying motivated at some point. It’s a universal struggle that transcends age, profession, and lifestyle. Here are some strategies to help you stay motivated.

Set Clear Goals: Having a clear, attainable goal can provide strong motivation. It gives you a concrete goal and allows you to measure your progress. Whether a personal goal like losing weight or a professional goal like completing a project, having a clear goal can keep you motivated.

Break Down Large Tasks: Large tasks can seem overwhelming and lead to procrastination. Breaking them into smaller, manageable tasks can make them seem less daunting and more achievable. Each small victory can boost your motivation and keep you moving forward.

Celebrate Small Wins: Don’t wait until you’ve reached your final goal to celebrate. Recognize and celebrate small wins along the way. This can boost your morale and motivation, making the journey more enjoyable.

Stay Positive: Maintaining a positive attitude can help you stay motivated. Even when things get tough, try to focus on the positive aspects of your situation. Remember, setbacks are temporary and are often opportunities for learning and growth.

Surround Yourself with Positivity: Your environment and the people around you can greatly influence your motivation. Surround yourself with positive people who encourage and inspire you. Avoid negativity, as it can drain your motivation.

Self-Care: Don’t neglect your physical and mental health. Regular exercise, a healthy diet, adequate sleep, and time for relaxation can boost your energy levels and motivate you.

Remember, motivation is not a constant state but a fluctuating one. There will be highs and lows. The key is to keep pushing forward, even when motivation is low. With these strategies, you can stay motivated and achieve your goals.

A man is going skydiving for the first time. He is ready to go after listening to the instructor for days. The man goes up in the airplane and waits to reach the proper altitude. Excited, he jumps out of the aircraft. After a bit, he pulls the ripcord. Nothing happens. He tries again. Still nothing. He starts to panic but remembers his backup chute. He pulls that cord. Nothing happens. He frantically begins pulling both cords but to no avail.

Suddenly, he looks down, and he can’t believe his eyes. Another man is in the air with him, but this guy is going up! As the other guy passes by, the skydiver, scared out of his wits, yells, “Hey, do you know anything about skydiving?” The other guy yells back, “No! Do you know anything about gas stoves?


Mount Erebus, on Ross Island in Antarctica, is one of three volcanoes on the island, United Press International reported. Erebus is quite active, emitting gas and steam plumes along with partially molten boulders. Scientists are particularly intrigued, though, with the sprays of tiny crystals of metallic gold — around 80 grams per day, worth about $6,000. Traces of the gold dust have been found 621 miles away from the volcano.

Robert and Betty Fooks of West Dorset, England, were deep into renovating their 400-year-old farmhouse when they decided to tear up the concrete floor to increase the height of their kitchen, the Daily Star reported. As Robert wielded a pickax, they came upon a treasure 2 feet below the floor: $75,000 worth of ancient coins. The currency, which dated to the reigns of Queen Elizabeth I, King James I and King Charles I, was pristine. “I presume they were buried during the English Civil War and the person intended to retrieve them but never got the chance,” Betty said. A coin specialist said the coins were probably left there on one occasion around 1642.

The Funeral

A funeral service is being held for a woman who has just passed away. At the end of the service, the pallbearers are carrying the casket out when they accidentally bump into a wall, jarring the casket. They hear a faint moan.

They open the casket to find that the woman is actually alive. She lives for ten more years and then dies. A ceremony is again held at the same church, and at the end of the ceremony, the pallbearers are again carrying out the casket. As they are walking, the husband cries out,

“Watch Out For That Wall”.

Three Little Words
