Today's #MondayMotivation is dedicated to a person who took the words "motivation" and "change", and made them her own. My second favorite lady behind my Mama. Someone who makes goals for herself, peaked it, and continues to climb up her mountain of success: Trap Madsen.
We all have our insecurities, the little things we wish we could change about ourselves physical or emotionally. Ever since this wonderful woman came back into my life she has worked, and continues to work towards the results she wants to see. Since I have known Madsen, I knew without her telling me that she was insecure about her weight, and her 5"10 stature. There was a point in time when her insecurities would plague her mind, and put her in moods opposite of her personality.
Now, she walks around with a glow, and charm that makes you want to acknowledge all of the hard work she has put in over the years. The pride she takes in ever little instance of her life has encouraged myself to strive for the goals I set in life. She brought a more significant meaning to the phrase "Hard work, and dedication" with the way she pushes not only herself, but me as well, to strive for the goals we set for our life. At times she can be stubborn like my mother, but maybe that is why I like her so much.
Yes, it is essential to have self-motivation, but it is also nice to have an outside source that motivates you to push forward, even when your sub-conscience is telling you differently. There are tons of other motivational sources out there beyond another human-being, but I am blessed to have witness the change Madsen has made for herself and her future, and can not wait to see more.
Until next time: set your eye on the prize, put in the work to obtain that prize: and once the prize is yours, repeat the process for another aspect of your life.
Oh yeah: it's also Madsen's 21st birthday, so if you're reading this could you please leave her some birthday wishes in the comment section.
