 My Motivation

Family, friends, and colleagues are just some of the people who help keep my spirits high – it sure helps to have a strong support network. Having motivation that comes from other sources is great too as people aren’t always around for support. Self-motivation tactics or motivation from an easily accessible source (e.g. a song, music piece, poem, film, etc.) is an incredibly useful tool to have. A great source of my motivation comes from a challenge or reaching an end goal and achieving. Sometimes I do get disheartened and that’s when a motivational pick-me-up comes in handy and so here is my collection:  

THE ‘DON’T QUIT’ COIN

Do not give up, keep going’ were the words that helped me push through the tough times and it helped me to keep going. The years took its toll though and slowly I was losing momentum and hope. Then on a school trip, I found a coin in the gift shop with the words ‘Don’t Quit’ on it. Just seeing it reignited an elemeny of hope within me. The coin still lets me know to never give up but it also serves as a reminder of how far I have come since the dark times.

~Don’t Quit~

When things go wrong,
As they sometimes will
When the road you’re
Trudging seems all uphill
Don’t You Quit
~~~~
And
You want to
Smile, but you have to
Sigh. When care
Is pressing you down
A bit, by all means pray
It’s when things go wrong that you
Must not
Quit

 Tillie The Little Engine That Could (“I think I Can”)

Tillie The Little Engine That Could (Inspiration)

The mantra “I think I can” comes from the famous book ‘The Little Engine That Could.’ Tillie, The Little Blue Engine from the 1991 film adaptation, inspired me to keep going and I created my mantra of ‘Do not give up, keep going’ from her.

Fun Fact: I chose blue as one of the main colours for DyspraxicFantastic as an homage to Tillie.

Warrior The Tugboat

Warrior Tugs

Warrior is a clumsy tugboat from the TV series Tug. He didn’t inspire me anywhere near the extent that Tillie did, but that doesn’t make him any less of a motivational character in my eyes. He was a character that I found I could relate to on a ‘Dyspraxia’ level or more accurately a clumsy level as it was before my own diagnoses. Warrior doesn’t officially have Dyspraxia, but in my opinion, he ticks off various traits. In any case, he was one of my icons growing up.

Quotes

“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.”

Memes

Memes are the internet’s catchphrases and are a popular way of sharing content. They can be used as a comic relief and a learning tool at the same time. Dyspraxia memes already exist in the form of Dyspraxic Panda, but I think bumblebees or even dragons suit better. I like to inject some light and humour into the world of Dyspraxia, learning to laugh at the little mishaps really does help.
