Motivation Monday - The VLoggers You Need To Be Following!

Without inspiration, the best powers of the mind remain dormant, there is a fuel in us which needs to be ignited with sparks!
There never was a great soul that did not have some divine inspiration!

I am inspired by so many things, for example my best friend is one of the most independent people I know, she asks for nothing from no one but will do anything for anyone. My mum's open honesty and willingness to talk to anyone that needs a listening ear. My sister, again for independence - she moved out of town to somewhere she knew no one, got her dream job and is studying her butt off to make it work. The 70 year old disabled man that goes to the gym religiously every Monday, Wednesday & Saturday morning, he is restricted in his walking and requires help getting up and down the stairs, it sometimes takes him 10 minutes effort to get around the gym to the machine he wants to use and when he is on it, damn he puts 150% into it! He's amazing. I like to think I have a very open mind, that open mind mean's I don't judge people, and unless I'm given reason to see otherwise I'll mainly only see the positive qualities in others. What I've seen with some people is that they see what others have, what they can do, they want those abilities or qualities instilled in themselves but they don't want to change, or work for it. So it triggers a resentment toward the other person which we know as jealousy. I don't have time for jealousy, it's a ugly look on anyone. So an open mind is key, the you want it - go get it for yourself attitude is essential. Use your admiration of that 'thing' the person holds to fuel your ambition. That is inspiration. 

I think the internet is a great tool for finding that little bit of extra inspiration and motivation. I love to watch people's progress and get fresh meal idea's, new work out moves I haven't seen before, sometimes ones I have seen and I want to improve my posture on. The two tools I use mostly for these things are Instagram and Youtube. So Instagram works both ways, I've made so many friends on there. I upload my progress  and meal idea's for my followers, and I take idea's from them. We all have the same goal in life which is to better ourselves, to be the best that we can be in all that we do and so we all support each other which brings out confidence in one another. This has been a massive contribution to the success I've had so far in my fitness journey. 
So YouTube - it's been around forever but other than for drooling over Tom Hardy trailers or watching dancing dogs (have you seen the salsa dancing dog? Amazing! Go watch it) I never really used Youtube.. When Hunny Buns Fit who I avidly follow on Instagram started regularly updating her Youtube page I started following her VLogs and fitness video's - Youtube suddenly became my go to place whenever I wanted to learn something new fitness related. And lifestyle tips - because all success is dependent on the lifestyle you have. Being organised and prepping ahead so that I can go about my day with focus sets me up to conquer what's in store.
I think you need to see it to understand fully, so I'm going to leave you with links to my 3 favourite VLogger's on YouTube and I really hope they help you like they help me!
