Motivation, Stepping Out of the Mind and the Warrior Within

“Motivation is what happens to us when we run out of excuses."

~Evolutionary Pathways

Motivation is our driver. It is also our survivor. Motivation is what makes us do what we do to survive and thrive. Connected with this drive we come vibrantly alive.

When motivation dies, an important part of us dies too. ‘Where did my motivation go? Why am I so unmotivated?’ We look for a clue. Asking such questions when motivation is all gone, we need to know where it went…we can’t even mow the lawn!

When motivation is running high our life connection is strong. Our intentions are clear - we feel we belong. Motivated and inspired we know we’re on track; without it we have to wonder - perhaps our cheek we should smack?!

‘Am I where I need to be? Am I doing the right thing? Am I listening to the voice of inspiration - the voice of my king? Am I settling for something less, than I want deep inside? Am I compromising and letting my warrior take a slide?’

To reconnect with your self, stepping out of the mind is a must. Connect with nature, dwell in silence…drop old habits with disgust. Giving your self the mental space to just be; motivation is in the next room and you’ve just found the key. Train to harmonize both body and mind; and nothing will stop you or keep you confined.



The warrior within is with you; your mind is at ease.

As you reconnect with the voice within you that’s true; there’s your motivation seemingly out of the blue.

Motivation Poems - Purpose

"The purpose of life is a life of purpose."

~Robert Byrne

We all have a purpose. Why are you here - what’s yours? Until you answer this question you’re stuck in a boat without oars. When you ask yourself and question - when the answer is near; warrior inspiration is there to help you get clear.

A purpose isn’t something to pick-up and adopt. It is given by life and it will not be stopped. Each of us has a purpose, born here to fulfill. It remains up to us to live it - to experience the thrill.

Purpose is bigger than self - yours or mine. It skips over the walls - it’s intended to shine. Inspired purpose calls the warrior within to the fore - ready for action, ready for more.

Motivation and Procrastination Don't Go Hand-In-Hand

"Tear thyself from delay."


Who hasn't felt helpless at one time or another trying to figure out how to stop procrastination - the shudder! You want to take action, be productive - and move forward at once; yet an invisible hand holds you back for a day, weeks or months.

This invisible force is nothing but the mind in the way. Will it release its grip and free you to action? It may.

Make no mistake about it, procrastination is a disease - and you are the cure. It’s a disease of the mind - of that to be sure. Overcoming this foe, your true capabilities shine. You connect with your warrior to step out of the mind.

With inspiration you can stop procrastination in its track. The warrior within - once awakened - won’t let it back.

Motivation and Vision - It Is Our Decision...

"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them."

~Henry David Thoreau

It takes vision to coax dormant potential to act. It takes vision to stay the course despite all that would distract. When your eyesight is true and the future is clear; its time to get busy…it’s time to shift gear.

As you begin to commit blueprint to action, many challenges will come your way. It’s certainly not the time to waver or sway. Tough circumstances, lack of resources, unhelpful judgements from others; all par-per-the-course, vision and challenge are brothers.

The realization of vision isn’t for the faint hearted. It’s time to call on the warrior within to get started. Vision needs to be shielded from inner and outer foes alike; courage and character will be needed to hold up the dike. As the seeds of the future are diligently sown; your vision is nurtured, protected and grown.

Step out of the mind and bring your vision to life. Cut away any hindrance, be sharp with the knife. The road may twist and turn like a bird in flight or a swallow; yet the path is yours - your vision to follow.

Motivation Poems and Habit - Take Heed or You've Had It!

"Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going."

~Jim Rohn

I am your humble companion. I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden - imagine. I will push you onward or drag you down to failure. I am completely at your command - your devil or saviour.

Half of the things you do, you might as well turn over to me; for I can do them quickly and correctly - I am easily managed you see. You must be firm and show me exactly how it’s done; after a few lessons I’ll do it automatically - while you stay on the run.

I am the servant of all great people; and alas of all failures too. Those who are great and those who fail - do you think it a coincidence?


I am not a machine, though I work with uncanny precision and intelligence combined; you may run me for profit or run me for ruin, I’m here by you to be shaped and designed.

Take me, train me, be firm with me, and I will place the world at your feet. Be easy with me and I will destroy you and ensure your defeat.

Who am I?

Habit of course!

Step out of the mind to shape me and you'll have no cause for remorse.

A Motivation Poem About Initiative 

"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them."

~George Bernard Shaw

Initiative is essential if a conscious path you will walk; for a conscious path is a choice - you’ll need to move and take stalk. When you fail to choose and to consciously make your way; the powers of inertia are sure to take over the day. Habits have momentum and keep going on their own; if not for initiative you’d end up but a clone.

The stronger the momentum - the darker the night; the more initiative you bring to even the fight. Otherwise the river of life keeps on going; it doesn’t really care it just keeps on flowing!

Throw a boulder in that river and cause it to take a different route. No point in lamenting or complaining - no use to kick and shout.

The warrior within can make any river change its course. Determined and persistent it cares little for remorse. Yet nothing happens until something moves. Your life remains constant until something improves. You need to set sail; you need to begin. You have to take that first step for your inner warrior to win.

A Motivation Poem About Action: The Mind - It Seems - Can Be Quite A Distraction...

"The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action."

~John Dewey

The warrior knows how to act; and also how to be still. It also knows how to move and embody the thrill. In the warrior’s world stillness and movement are one; they invite each other out to play under the sun.

The bridge of action spans the gap between ‘to think’ a-n-d ‘to be’. It takes us from imagination to creation - from an acorn to a tree. Sometimes - it happens - that the bridge we find blocked. We think, but can’t move. We find our wings have been chopped.

A step out of the mind is really all that’s required. The warrior within is waiting, for action is deeply hard-wired. The warrior within knows truth the mind just cannot see. The warrior within is noble, wild and ultimately free. Determined, motivated and inspired in one; the warrior within is alive and won’t be undone.
