Second Life Motivational Meme

Second Life Motivational Meme

Have you guys seen those motivational posters before where people take an image and put a black border with some motivational text around it? These posters are supposed to have positive behavioral effects. I thought it would be an interesting experiment if we got together and created some positive motivational posters for Second Life. Then we can see if they have any kind of behavioral effects on those that view them.

Meme instructions: Going to give you a couple of options to choose from today:
> Create a motivational poster using any image from Second Life with some motivating words about Second Life.
> Talk about what motivates you and how you motivate yourself every day.
Don’t forget to share the link to your post in the comments and add your pictures to the Blog Memes flickr group.

Second Life Motivational Meme

I honestly couldn’t think of anything that great, so I settled on this one..for now. If I think of some better motivational text, I might do more later this week. I used the Motivator from BigHugeLabs to create the poster. It really makes it quick and easy to create one.

I thought perhaps I should do a bit of a goofy one too, but again, I dunno :P

I kinda sucked at the posters lol so I did also want to do the second part of my meme because this past year I have been through an emotional roller coaster and around this time last year I was completely destroyed. It took me a while to get myself to feel motivated and inspired. After my trip to Europe, I started to do something on a daily basis that helped me a lot.

into each life some rain must fall

I was watching an interview of Nargis Fakhri and she said something that really struck a chord with me. She said she woke up every morning and repeated a certain “mantra” to herself to motivate herself each day. I wrote it down and started doing it myself and after feeling completely destroyed for months, I felt a lot better about myself and my work. After a while though, I stopped doing it. I just got very busy with work and I hadn’t done it for a while. Then recently, memories of last year have been haunting me again and certain current events in my real life have gotten me down. So this week, I started doing the mantra again and I have to say, I can already feel it helping.

This is a bit weird and personal for me to share lol, so I hope you guys don’t judge me (too hard) that I actually do this every morning now. But I think if it helps me, it might help some of you. So here goes…I have this written on a piece of paper near my desk and I repeat it to myself every morning:

  1. I wake up today with strength in my heart and clarity in my mind.
  2. My body is healthy, my mind is brilliant and my soul is tranquil.
  3. I am brimming with energy and overflowed with joy.
  4. I am superior to negative thoughts and low actions.
  5. I forgive those who have harmed me in my life and peacefully detach from them.
  6. My ability to conquer my challenges is limitless; my potential to succeed is infinite.
  7. Today, I abandon my old habits and take up new, more positive ones.
  8. I am the architect of my life; I build its foundation and choose its contents.
  9. I love and accept myself for who I am.
  10. My life is just beginning.

After I wrote this down from her interview, I googled it and I came upon an article on Huffington Post by Carmen Harra who also spoke about similar affirmations, but she has 35. I decided to just stick with these 10 since they seem to resonate better with me. You can see all 35 here: 35 Affirmations That Will Change Your Life

So that’s what I do to motivate myself. Since I started this up again this week, I wanted to do a motivational meme to perhaps motivate you guys as well. I think even it helps a few of you guys, then I’ll feel like this post has served its purpose.

Please remember that you can participate in any of the memes/challenges at any time. You’ll find them all under my Blog Challenges category along with other memes and challenges I’ve done over the years. You don’t have to have a blog to do this challenge, you can share your image on any social platform you prefer.

anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain

Before I end this post, I did want to share that I was interviewed and will be on the Designing Worlds show today (Monday) at 2pm SLT. You can check out the Prim Perfect Blog for details and location. You can attend the showing in person in their studio (at this SLurl). If you can’t make it to the show, you can watch it on SLArtist or Vimeo.

I will also try and be at the studio today (if I can) to watch with you guys and then there is a question and answer session after the show. I’m really nervous so no one ask me any stressful questions and nothing about mangoes or swallowing earrings ok! :P

Happy Monday! <3
