One of the best ways I've found to motivate myself is to write a letter to myself to read in the future. A website, www.futureme.org, allows you to write letters to yourself and schedule them for thirty days or longer. I set goals for myself, and the letters help to remind me thirty days down the road that the goal is coming up.
But Future Me can be used for so much more than that. You can write a letter to yourself about all the things you're worried about today. When it arrives in your inbox thirty days later, you'll see that the things you worried about weren't worth worrying about at all.
If you're having a problem in your life, write a letter of encouragement to yourself. Remind yourself that the future will be brighter, and when the letter comes, it'll bring a smile to your face.
So go ahead and give it a try! I'm off to write another letter to myself!
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
