We’re now nearly a month into the New Year and I’ve still not lost those extra pounds I put on over the Christmas period! This is down to the endless boxes of chocolates still laying around – and my weakness to them.Then it dawned on me that I did some ‘slimming’ motivators a few years ago for Rosemary Conley’s Diet and Fitness magazine.
Regardless of what you think – YOU can succeed! You just have to B.E.A.R – believe, expect, act and receive!
I’m going to do more updates on my Facebook page – where you can chip in with your thoughts/comments. Let me know if you missed the ‘Motivators’ over the last few weeks? (I’ve been really busy with cartoon projects.)
Let me know if I should carry on doing them? Let me know what subject matter I should be drawing cartoons on? I want to hear from you!!!
Please ‘LIKE’ my Facebook page:
You can succeed – but you must act now!
Here’s an email I received from one of my subscribers to my ‘Weekly Motivator’…
Richard as a small business owner who is doing it tough atm…I just have to tell you how much your cartoons mean. It’s amazing what they say about when you are ready for the lesson in life it will show up….again and again till you get it. OK sometimes in the shape of a piece of 4×4 across the back of the head (lol) but this is brilliant. Thanks for making me smile this morning through the stress the day has presented. Cheers Allison
If at first you don’t succeed, do it like your mother told you. ~Author Unknown
In order to succeed you must fail, so that you know what not to do the next time. ~Anthony J. D’Angelo
Some people succeed because they are destined to, but most people succeed because they are determined to. ~Author Unknown
We can succeed together!
Remember, failure is not an option!
Running away from some monsters and having to leap a river of molten lava – there’s no time to think.You have to succeed to live – plain and simple!
I wonder if there was another way I could have illustrated this slogan? Let me know your thoughts!
Are you STUCK IN A RUT?
Who really wants to experience a life without a challenge? Be honest, how bored would you be with nothing to strive toward? -Daniel N. Brown, “How To Get Out of a Rut”
We all know where the smallest room is – but what about the biggest room in the World?
I came a cross this quote somewhere on my travels through cyberspace, but can’t remember where now.
It inspired this cartoon…
To be successful you have to give it 100% – 100% of the time!
“A man’s health can be judged by which he takes two at a time -
pills or stairs.” Joan Welsh
“Exercise alone provides psychological and physical benefits. However, if you also adopt a strategy that engages your mind while you exercise, you can get a whole host of psychological benefits fairly quickly.” James Rippe, M.D.
Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it. – Plato
To be successful, you must dedicate yourself 100% to your training, diet and mental approach. – Arnold Schwarzenegger
efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your
talent to produce outstanding results. – Anthony Robbins
miles a day when she was 60. She’s 97 today and we don’t know where
the hell she is. – Ellen Degeneres
To be successful you have to get off your backside and work it!
Motivational cartoon to illustrate – stop making excuses and negative thinking!
How many times a day do you undermine your own route to success? How many times do you say things like…”I have so much on at the moment!” “I’m not confident enough to do that!” “It’ll never work – it’s too complicated!”
Well, if you’re saying these negative excuses it’s time to stop! Break through those negative thought. Get out of your own way to success!

Today we look at ‘Having a BURNING DESIRE and OBSTACLES that get in the way of your goals’
Here’s a few of my favourite quotes:
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. Henry Ford
“A burning desire to be or do something gives us staying power – a reason to get up every morning or to pick ourselves up and start in again after a disappointment”
The obstacles you face are… mental barriers which can be broken by adopting a more positive approach. Clarence Blasier
There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants and a burning desire to possess it. Napolean Hill
A lot of people give up just before they’re about to make it. You know you never know when that next obstacle is going to be the last one.
“A burning desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.”
“Success is focusing the full power of all you are on what you have a burning desire to achieve.”
Nothing is an obstacle unless you say it is.
J Paul Getty said that a man with a burning desire and just an average ability would be a winner every time. His premise was that if a person is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their goals, then they would eventually achieve them. Are you willing?
Do You Have a Burning Desire?
Here’s a cartoon I did a while ago for Gail Smirthwaite at GolfGuru.
Notice how it add visual content to the email and makes you want to read on to see what it’s all about!? Did you also notice it was probably the first thing you read when you say it?

You know what they say – what doesn’t kill you makes you mentally stronger.
True. That strength may not come immediately after hardship. Sometimes it shows up awhile after, but I believe in most cases this is true.
Becoming mentally stronger – Sometimes it’s true, sometimes it’s false. Certainly some people are made much weaker from traumatic experiences… the experience doesn’t kill them but they never recover fully. Some people manage to come out the better for it. It really depends on the person and the experience.
