When you have a little extra time or need some extra motivation, check out this list of motivation articles. They are a great way to focus your attention on what is important and release the distractions that keep you from reaching your potential.
It takes only a few minutes many times to read a good article and then only a few more to think about what the article means to you and how it can affect your life.
Look for "take-aways" in each article that you can apply to your life right now. You might like to print some of these off and keep them for reference.
Motivational articles are full of strategies and tips that can be incorporated into your daily routine and really make a long term impact on your life.
Studies show that the more time you spend with positive information and less time with negative news that the media spits out every day, the more your life will become positive and happy. On fact, research shows that you need a 3:1 ratio of positive thoughts compared to negative ones to have a healthy life.
So take a break from the negative media that the world would have you read and spend some time with some good positive motivation articles.
I began a "media fast" four years ago where I don't read newspapers or news magazines, don't watch the news on television or listen to it on the radio.
Now when I see any regular news media it strikes me as having a negative impact on my life and I completely reject it and instinctively move away from it.
I dare say that this site would not be possible if I were still allowing the negativity of the main stream media into my life.
So you might want to try a "media fast" for the next 30 days and enjoy the wonderful feeling of breaking free from that negativity will bring.
This list will keep growing so check back often and get motivated!
