Title: The Ten Steps to Motivation

The following poem has been written as more of a motivational guide for myself, to remind me to keep on track. I able to lead a pretty normal life, despite having my medical conditions. Motivation, positive thinking and being calm, makes this possible for me, so it may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it works for me.

For that reason I am not expecting reviews on this, but hopefully you may enjoy anyway.

STEP ONE TO MOTIVATION
IS TO FIND YOUR OWN FOUNDATION

You're the only person, who can change your life
and so it is you who must change your ways
Think of how you'd like to spend your time
and how to fill up your days

Think about the person you'd like to be
list the items you'd like to achieve
Set yourself, realistic goals
(One's that you'll not just leave)

Confront your fears and don't be scared
have confidence stand tall
do not allow anyone to put you down
you can control this - it's your call

Ask yourself what you want from life?
and how can you go about getting it?
Write down all your ideas
and tick them off bit by bit

STEP TWO TO MOTIVATION
IS TO CLEAR THE CONDENSATION

Look into any grievances or issues
that still linger from the past
list them down one at a time
it's time we got rid of them fast

Rid your past of any hang ups
and start living in the 'now'
you need to forgive or accept
or seek out reasons how

When you're finishing up this process
and the end is very near
you can focus going forward
because your mind will be much more clear

Give up all of your grudges
they make you bitter on the inside
This is the start of a new beginning
Relax and enjoy the ride

STEP THREE TO MOTIVATION
IS FINDING DEDICATION

It's always positive thinking
and having strong will power
the courage for strength to journey on
when it gets harder by the hour

It's sticking to healthy eating
and resisting fatty foods
eating things nutritious
helping swinging moods

It's exercising regularly
and allocating time
i'ts enjoying being active
and resisting the bottle of wine!

It's not giving in when the going gets tough
it's working to see results
It's hanging in there and gritting your teeth
and seeing past your faults

STEP FOUR TO MOTIVATION
IS CONNECT WITH MEDITATION

Get your Chakras back in line
and chant Mantras everyday
clear your mind of everything
and make stresses go away

Light up scented candles
and stare into the light
practise visulisation
and see your goals in sight.

STEP FIVE OF MOTIVATION
IS TIME FOR RELAXATION

Create sometime to put aside
that's entirely for yourself
take the time to wind down
it's cruicial to your health

Run yourself a bubble bath
listen to a relaxing cd
try not to argue or raise your voice
and let your stresses go free

Book yourself a holiday
something you can look forward to
put your feet up, enjoy your time
with not a thing int he world to do

Pick youself a happy time
and place this in your mind
this should be an instant calm
when re-call needs to find

STEP SIX TO MOTIVATION
TO GAIN MORE OF AN EDUCATION

Reading is a fantastic way
to higher your IQ
Vary yoru reading material
for learning something new

Think about some courses
that could help you in your career
or maybe just as a hobbie
there is really nothing to fear

It's never too late to take on new things
just by listening - you'll learn
and perhaps one day, you'll put it in use
to change what you can earn

Treasure those who are keen to teach
who do not charge by the hour
because knowledge for free is rare enough
but knowledge alone equals power

STEP SEVEN TO MOTIVATION
IS TO HAVE CONSIDERATION

Look through someone elses eyes
before you do or say
because the consequences of your actions~
can be a hard price to pay

Before you decide to judge
on situations that everyone knocks
Take a step back and listen
before putting people in a box

Your conscience is there for a reason
you really shouldn't hide it way down
and manners do not cost a thing my friends
it takes less muscles to smile than to frown

ST EP EIGHT TO MOTIVATION
IS TO HAVE APPRECIATION

It's not taking people for granted and
enjoying the company around you
and when someone who cares takes an interest
respect that they have a view

It's the present you received that was precious
because of the thought involved and not the price
Acknowledgement that someone has listened
and you never had to tell them twice

STEP NINE TO MOTIVATION
IS MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR LOCATION

Take in the attractions of where you live
and all it's neighbouring places
learn about it's history
and the famous local faces

Visit different restaurants
explore the foreign cusiine
frequent the numerous watering holes
and become part of the music scene

Take a trip to the theatre
watch a musical or a play
or maybe catch a concert
see what's on today!

STEP 10 TO MOTIVATION
IS GIVE PRAISE AND COMMENDATION

To tell yourself you matter
and to tell yoruself you care
set yourself aims and targets
and treat yoruself when your reach there

As you tick off all those goals
stand up and answer loud
ask yourself 'what has changed?'
stand up and answer proud

and it's not just you who needs a boost
make sure it's noticed in others
your Mums, Dads, Partners and friends
your Children, Sisters and Brothers

ENDING

So if you're feeling motivated
after reading my little rhyme
maybe you should flick back to the start
and re-schedule some of your time

but if you think sucess is just about money
then this poem isn't for you
This process is on the deeper side
about becoming a more motivated you
