With this #wisdomwednesday I thought of talking about three little sayings or little pick me ups that really push me and that helps me get going, they are some easy ways to stay motivated.

"The harder of you work, the luckier you get". Sometimes it's easy to get into a little bit of a rut and not want to do something. Whenever I feel a little bit off, and I know I should be working harder, I always remind myself of this saying. Ultimately, the harder we work, the more quality opportunities we get. My dad always tells me "luck is when preparation meets opportunity". If you are prepared, and you work hard, it is a lot easier to capitalize on opportunities.

"You get what you tolerate". This one's simple, but I think it helps me put everything into perspective. If you tolerate and settle for something less than what you deserve, that's what you're going to get, but if you tolerate greatness, greatness will occur. And I think it is so applicable in regards to anything, work, relationships, and life in general.

"You don't have to do something, you get to do something". With everything that we do, it's important to follow through with gratitude. To feel privileged. To be thankful for what we have and who we have in our lives. Thankful that we're able to do things that we love to do. We have the opportunities to do things that bring us joy, fulfillment and an abundance of success. Sometimes we take things for granted, and it's important to reflect on all of the great things happening around us.
