You may have seen several social media posts that scream ‘Monday Motivation’, but are they of any help? Oh, yes! After all, even if the Monday blues are real, these reminders serve as a great way to begin your week. The first day of the week feels like a beginning; a time when you try to leave the challenges of the past week behind, and march forward with positivity.

So without further ado, let’s go through some Monday reminders that will inspire you to take charge!

1. Today is a new day

We all have hard days and sometimes weeks, but that doesn’t mean we always have to carry them forward, right? So, leave the stressors behind and start your Monday with the thought that you will conquer the week, but one day at a time. And a new week means new opportunities, so dive into it with all the inspiration and creativity!

2. Failure is normal

The world of work emphasises on hustling hard to achieve success. Now while all of that is fine, remember you might not nail it every single time, and that’s fine. So, if you do not manage to check off that to-do list completely or are too lazy to get up and exercise, do not be hard on yourself. It is often said, ‘there is no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs’, so even if you miss out on a few steps as part of your journey, it is fine!

3. Don’t compare yourself to others

In the age of social media, it is rather too easy to compare yourself to others. Pictures of those holidays or enjoying with friends, or those work travel shares can really make you feel inadequate! But remember, everyone has their successes and challenges, and it is completely fine to have your own journey. You can’t and should not be defined by others; you are unique and that’s what makes you beautiful.

4. Nothing will change if you don’t take any steps

You may have various goals but until you take any steps, nothing will change. There are several times when we believe that others have it easy because of ‘sheer luck’, but that’s not true. Work towards building new habits, ditch the old ones, and work every day towards creating a life you have always wanted to!

5. You have a lot of power within you

We’ve all heard of the power of law of attraction, courtesy The Secret. But what really stands out is how your beliefs shape up your reality. If you truly believe that you are capable of something, you will! So, start to visualise more, and take baby steps towards your dream. Trust us, they will come true and you will build the life you’ve always wanted to!
