Monday Morning Motivation – Enough

(Sharing Resources to Help You Grow Personally, Professionally & Financially)

Sometimes it helps to get a little dose of encouragement — along with a good cup of coffee! — to start the day.

Hopefully the message below will help you get off to a good start for the week.  Please feel free to forward the newsletter on to others that you think would benefit from the content.


It is fascinating to me that while we live in what is probably the most affluent, easiest to live in time in history, you still hear people complaining:

  • I don’t have enough time
  • I don’t have enough money
  • I don’t have enough XYZ

In spite of the affluence that surrounds us, these cries of “not enough” are constantly prevalent.

My hypothesis is that people do not have enough OF THE RIGHT things.  That leads to a sense that something is missing, to a search for something.  This searching manifests itself via the “I don’t have enough” battle cry.

And yet there are those amongst us who are NOT continually at war with “enough”.  These individuals seem to have found “enough” and stopped fighting the war to find more.

That leads us to this week’s question:

  • How do you define enough?

Thanks for sharing a bit of your time with me this Monday morning and I wish you all the best for the week.
