Motivation, Wildwood Style

It’s time to get motivated and focus on the goals, now we’re half way through the week.

Motivation is important and the Wildwood says to keep my eyes on the prize! What’s your prize? If you’re not sure, you can hire me to help you, right here.

Knowing where you’ve come from is great, essential even. Knowing where you’d going to when you’re lacking motivation can be a pain in the proverbial bottom. If you’re not motivated or you have not got a scoobie, it’s time to find your focus.

motivationTake The Archer from the Wildwood. She’s focused, but how do you get motivated? In my case, I talked with a business coach to get things in my head sorted. Whilst I don’t talk business all the time, or have gone down the coaching route, a Tarot reading is very much like an informal counselling session. I do prefer it to be a brain storming session though and not just a monologue from yours truly!

The arrow that the Archer here is poised to release, has goose feather fletches and a flint arrow-head. It may or may not have a spell upon it, like the Celts did, or have geometric signs that Native American Indians had for their medicine arrows. The point is, to be direct. Arrows in this deck are like swords in the traditional RWS, the Archer here is The Chariot. You wouldn’t drive a car if you didn’t know how to, or know where you’re going, or release an arrow without knowing your target.

So, where do you want to go? What do you wish to achieve? How much money do you need to make? Break that down to a week, how does it look now?

It’s time to create a positive motivation. I’ve just seen a great meme on LinkedIn from Pinky Love (who is a motivational coach) that says: “Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and focus on what could go right.”

Which is just fabulous! Focus on the positives, not the negatives. Focus on what you want to create, not what you cannot. Add in some motivation then go and make it happen. This should be easier now Mercury has gone direct.Β  Until next time, stay motivated!

    It’s funny – I just read a poster this morning that said, “Whatever can go well, will go well,” a much more pleasant take on Murphy’s Law πŸ˜‰

    What a fabulous analogy, Louise! It took me a while to realise that I had shot out a load of arrows with no clear target, and now I am out there retrieving those arrows (metaphorically, of course!) 2016 is my year for focus as well… oh look, something shiny!! πŸ˜‰

      Stay focused, woman! *lol* and yes, do have I. But now, I has targets…
