The Keys to Success #17: Learn to Love Monday

Image result for monday



There is nothing, and I mean literally nothing, worse than someone who complains about anything and everything. Whether that means they go on social media and write status updates saying how tired and drained they are and how they just want to stay in bed forever. Or it could mean they tell every single living, breathing person they see just how terrible their day is and how much they wish it was over already.

You want to know what this sort of negative attitude gets you? A one-way ticket to failure town, that’s what.

I literally see it everywhere, on every form of social media, every single hour, of every single day. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t get upset over it or let it bother me, because that would only result in it taking away from my success too. But whenever I do see it (which like I said is a lot), I just ask myself why. Why be a complainer? Why be a moaner? Why not just shut the fuck up and get your shit done?

It baffles me sometimes, how people seem to be so complacent, just milling through life with no motivations or goals or desire to be successful. How they are happy with their mediocrity and their incessant complaining on social media. But then again, I guess we’re all on different journeys. I happen to be someone who is self-motivated and driven, maybe they aren’t. It’s a concept I cannot fully understand, but I shall accept it for what it is I guess…

Yep you guessed it… Monday is that wonderful day in which incessant complainers incessantly complain most. I think for the majority of our society, Monday is the horrible start to every week, where the fun of the weekend is over and it’s back to the harsh realities of adulthood and work. But, did I ever tell you that successful people tend not to be included in he majority of our society? If you hate Monday, then chances are you hate your job. And if you hate your job, then to me that means you’re stuck in some sort of situation resulting in you being underpaid. One of the main reasons we work is to make money, is it not? So when someone finds themselves in an underpaid role, chances are they really begin to hate the day that they are torn from their weekend of freedom and placed back into the heart of the swirling shit-storm.

But you know what? I FUCKING LOVE MONDAY!!!

It’s true, nothing excites me more than the thought of slingshotting myself from my bed on a Monday morning, grabbing a huge cup of coffee and getting started on my day of work. The fire in my stomach burns constantly, and when I wake up on Monday morning it’s no different. Granted, I never have a day off work completely, so to me there’s no such thing as a totally free weekend, so by the time Monday comes round it is not to me as it might be for others, where they’re back to work and hating life.

To me it’s another day, another day where my heart is beating and my lungs are inflating with air as they should. Another day I can use to get myself closer to the success I know is coming. What could possibly be better than the thought of that? The question is not: ‘how are you so motivated?’, the better question is: how are you not?

So if you’re someone who finds themselves thinking of Monday mornings as the closest thing to a living nightmare they could possibly find themselves in, then listen loud and listen clear: it’s time to make a change! That’s the beauty of it. It doesn’t have to be that way. You don’ have to wake up dreading Mondays, and counting down the seconds until Friday. You don’t have to live for the weekend and hate your work life so much that the thought of beginning a new working week is disgusting to you. It literally just doesn’t have to be that way. The power is in your hands. You are the reason you ended up in this job that you hate and only you are capable of taking yourself back out of it and placing yourself into a field you enjoy more. Not everyone on this earth can make a living doing the things they love, but that doesn’t mean they can’t give it one hell of a try.

So, if you hate Monday and like to complain about Monday, then you had better get up off your ass and discover your passion. Then, once you discover your passion, learn how to start making money through your passion. Because let me tell you from personal experience, I may not be making a huge amount of money from writing (yet), but it still feels amazing knowing that I’m managing to make money doing what I love. And that my friends, is the reason I love Monday morning!

And loving Monday morning, that certainly makes for some:

Happy writing!
