Finding Motivation for Success
As a financial planner, I am constantly looking for ways to motivate my clients to achieve financial success. For some people, motivation comes naturally and they just need a roadmap to success while other people need some more hand holding along the way. Just like my clients, though, I need motivation myself and for the past year, I have found a great deal of motivation from the Art to Self daily emails.
Almost a year ago, Stephanie Halligan, joined my podcast to talk about the launch of Art to Self, and after hearing her, I was motivated to sign up for the daily emails. I can’t even begin to tell you how much they have meant to me. After a few months of receiving them, I printed out 16 of my favorite ones and created a vision board that I hung next to my desk to motivate me. Each morning, I smile when I see the email in my inbox and there have been many days that I didn’t feel motivated until I got that cartoon pick-me-up.
A Book of Motivation
I am thrilled to have Stephanie back on the show today for a quick motivational podcast to talk about the launch of her book, Art to Self. I received an early copy of this book, and I have to say that it doesn’t disappoint. Many of my favorite drawings made it to the book with others that are new or I didn’t remember. The book is broken up into sections so you can flip to the section where you need the most motivation on any given day.
What I love most about the book and the drawings is that the acknowledge, embrace and celebrate the ups and downs of life. A journey to financial health and success is not a smooth journey, in fact, it’s usually the opposite. There will be many bumps and rough spots along the way and it’s important to embrace the tough times and move forward with positivity. This book is a great reminder for the best and worst days on your financial journey.

No matter what journey you’re on, I encourage you to find motivation from any possible source to keep you on the right track. For me, I am motivated by my husband and son, my family, my friends and from resources like Art to Self.
