7 Motivational Poems To Inspire You To Be Your Most Badass Self This Week

Share

Even the most imaginative, productive, talented of us readers sometimes struggle to stay motivated. And, as you probably know, feeling that sense of ennui come over you isn't pretty. It's literally the worst. It's like driving toward an intersection where you know there's truly no way to stop and, thus, you're forced to go through the red. With red-light cameras present. In a rental car. The day of your period. When you ran out of products.

There's no use in dwelling on the lameness of being unmotivated, though, because there are plenty of wonderful resources available to help you work through your block--or prevent you from having one in the first place. Life coach Stacia Pierce stresses making a practice out of positivity. In addition to beginning your day with affirmations and keeping company with upbeat folks, Pierce also details the importance of reading:

"Read and listen to positive information. If you fill your mind with uplifting and inspiring information, it will keep you motivated ... find at least one book on a positive topic that will give you a boost. You need constant reminders telling you that you are capable of achievement."

In short, stop beating yourself up! Let these 7 poems cheer you on.
