Monday Motivation: Do it now.

"You will often find that

it is the things that you
dread doing or are fearful
of doing that are - the
exact same things that
you should be doing."

Ever hear the term eat the frog first?

Frogs really do fly. Photo compliments of National Geographic.

Successful people respect their fears, but they don't allow them to control their lives. They don't react based on fear. But they use fear as fuel to prepare and propel forward. They do what needs to be done. They do it now.

Afraid to Fly? Time to solo? Time to speak in public? Time to pitch your book? Time to get published? Time to get that desk cleared up and your bills paid?

This week do that one thing you dread first! Eat that frog, and the rest of your week will be a piece of cake.
Fly fearlessly into your week and everything will be as it should.

Enjoy the Journey!

  3. Very inspiring post. Love that line eat the frog first.

  4. Well spoken!! We're cutting our worst "haul" today, just for that reason!! It is steep ground with gravel roads for miles...the guys are excited about the wheat, but not the haul!! :)

  5. Linda, I started my week eating two frogs! I hope you added a touch of seasoning. :)

  6. Heather, you are flying fearlessly. Our leader. Keep those wings spread and soar!

  7. Thank you Taco Girl. Am I hearing Frog Tacos in your future? Thanks for the comment!

  8. You're basically hauling frogs. Awesome. Keep up the hard work!
