It’s winter now here in Melbourne and that means the fireplace starts to get a serious workout.

Most days at this time of year, I put fresh firewood in and start another fire to keep our house nice and warm.

I wish that yesterday’s wood would get the job done, but it’s gone now and has to be replaced.

It’s similar to our motivation levels.

We may have been motivated yesterday, last week or last month, but we can’t expect this to last without fresh fuel.

Every day, we need to refocus on our goals.

Every day, we need to remind ourselves of why we do what we do.

Every day, we need to read uplifting books or hang out with enthusiastic, positive people.

Every day, we need to celebrate our little wins.

Because yesterday’s wood won’t fuel today’s fire.
