Challenge #2 Motivation Monday
Welcome to Challenge #2... This is going to open your eyes and stretch your thinking!
Every week we start off with Motivation Monday... This is a short 3 minute or less podcast episode where one of the hosts from the CYPOV Network chooses a motivational quote, recites it, and then briefly talks about what that particular quote means to them.
We've all seen motivational quotes right? Some of us have screen savers with such quotes, little calendars on our desks with these little sayings, we even search for them and share them on our Facebook feed and other Social Media platforms....
But how often do we ever sit and ponder on these quotes? Asking ourselves... "What does this quote mean to me, or how can I apply this in my life?"
Far too often in life, we admire the good things all around us which is great don't get me wrong... but... how often do we look at those things and reflect back on ourselves and see how it relates to or applies in our life.
This challenge will encourage you to see things that you probably see all around you all the time in a slightly different way. Give in to the process of this challenge and have fun with it!
This challenge is about self-awareness and reflection... Let's Do This!
Get your bearings... Check out the large list of Motivation Monday episodes... Select 2 episodes that speak to you and listen to them. Listen to how these episodes are structured. (listen carefully, you are going to need it)...
1- Quote is recited followed by the author
2- Share what that quote means to you, or how it applies in your life
Find a quote that you really like by any author of your choosing. This can be a historical figure, or someone alive today.
Write down a few thoughts about this quote... Perhaps ask yourself -
1- What do I think about when I hear or read this quote
2- How does this quote make me feel, (inspired, happy, motivated, somber, humble, etc.)
3- Has this quote applied to me in the past, or does it apply to me today, or will it apply to me in the future.... If so, how, or why?
This exercise if done correctly will show you something about yourself. Give in to the process, you will feel awesome afterward!
Record a video of yourself and post it in the Change Your POV Squad Challenge Page. Use the quote you just reflected on and follow the same structure as outlined in SETP 1.
Remember... Just have fun with it. Just think your video could make a real difference in someone else's life!
