Inspiration 28.

The hardest thing in life is getting motivated to do something.

Finding that motivation and keeping it, is something which many people struggle with. But once you have it, and you keep it you can achieve great things.

Here is the quote of the day:

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.”

Mark Twain

    I agree with you – the hardest thing is to start something. But once we start, the rest is easy. I love this quote. The first step is always the biggest one and we need to plan appropriately. Thanks for sharing!

    1. So true – once we start, the rest is easy! It’s just taking that first step that people find difficult, but the good news is it’s not impossible.

  6. Very true! The hardest part is to start, change from the state of inertia. Procrastinating is so tempting πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚πŸ’•.
    Have a great week.

  8. Completely agree with this – breaking it down and then getting started is much easier than looking at one big to do! πŸ™‚

    I totally agree with this! Breaking tasks down into smaller ones always makes completing them seem easier and it never seems as bad once you get going. Starting is definitely the hard part x

  12. I started my travel blog as a hobby with the intent to grow it over the years into a full time business. I took the plunge November 2019 and became a travel agent/full time blogger. I had already established myself as the go-to person for travel expertise, and it helped my agent business tremendously. That being said – i’ve put in hours, weeks, months, years worth of work into it. It’s certainly not easy.

    1. That sounds really impressive! It’s great to know that all your hard work has paid off. Even if it wasn’t easy, it is certainly an achievement when you keep on going and finally get what you want!
