Monday Motivations – Vince Lombardi

monday.motivations


This week’s Monday motivation comes from legendary Green Bay Packers head coach Vince Lombardi.  It seems fitting to turn to Lombardi for motivation this week after all yesterday was Super Bowl 50 and the illustrious Lombardi Trophy was awarded to the Denver Broncos.  You could easily substitute writing for winning in this Lombardi quote.

“Winning is a habit. Watch your thoughts, they become your beliefs. Watch your beliefs, they become your words. Watch your words, they become your actions. Watch your actions, they become your habits. Watch your habits, they become your character.”

This Lombardi quote could easily be: “Writing is a habit. Watch your thoughts, they become your beliefs. Watch your beliefs, they become your words. Watch your words, they become your actions. Watch your actions, they become your habits. Watch your habits, they become your character.”

What will your thoughts tell you about your writing?  Do you think you are a writer? Or do you think “I’d like to be a writer” or  even worse “I will never be a writer.”  Lombardi reminds us to be careful what we think, because our thoughts will become our words and actions.  Or in the case of a writer our thoughts could lead to writer’s block and inaction.  How will you create a habit of winning and writing?

What will your motivation be this week?
