I need a goal or goals each day for motivation. Procrastination is a mind numbing lazy concept that I must not accept. My family and especially my oldest nephew Alfredo’s desire to move forward in school, hockey and life to drive me on. I want to be the best son, uncle, brother, friend, mentor and writer.
How can you not be motivated in this life to give your all in whatever you put your hand too. My grandfather Stingel used to tell my dad and my uncle and aunts do what you do, do well. What a testament to creating a strong work ethic in your children. To follow what God would have for each one of his children. What a legacy for a man who lived just under 60 years on this earth. He Leroi Stingel was a glacier installer by trade when he was healthy. He went into the hospital when my dad was 3 years old and died when my dad was 15 years old. However the life lessons gave my dad motivation and drive to be the best he can be. My dad and my mom instilled some of those same values of drive, determination, dedication and discipline for my sister and I and their 3 grandsons.
In 1 Corinthians 13:13 that the faith, hope and love are the greatest thing a human possesses that come from God and within their Spirit. My greatest motivation is that I am a child of God and He wants his child to do well. He wants top give us the desires of our hearts and to do well.
We have no excuses not to inspire, create, encourage, push forward and be the person we are created to be and make a difference by letting our faith, hope and love lights shine. So my question is what motivates, inspires you to create. Have faith and hope to do small thing to make yourself believe again or just keep on believing the dream you set for yourself long ago.
A recent example of a dream follower is a 64 year old woman who swam from Cuba to the Florida Keys in 53 hours. This was her 5th and final try and she succeeded. What an inspiration to people of all ages never to give up, be determined and have faith that your dream will come true one day.
So disability, acquired brain injury and all the nay say individuals won’t keep me from my goals. I only want a faithful God, jesus, Holy Spirit and positive people to help chase my dreams and inspire others.
